This is one of the few dresses that isn’t black and white striped that managed to survive my most recent closet clean out. (Shop my closet sale goes live tomorrow! Eeee!) My style has changed so drastically over the past few years. It’s funny because it happens so slowly that I don’t really even realize it’s happening until one day nearly everything in my closet just isn’t me anymore or is something I no longer can figure out how to style.

That’s actually one of the main reasons I like to document my outfits, to watch my style evolve. Things I used to wear still look cute to me, but they no longer feel right on me. I tried this dress on with a few different cardigans, tights, and shoe combos before deciding on this one because it just felt good.

This outfit is cute but still super practical, which is all that I care about anymore. I was able to climb around on the drift wood because of my palladium boots, which surprisingly look awesome with a dress! Dresses and boots paired together are kind of a new thing for me. This was probably the very first time ever that I have been ecstatic about how they looked together. The dress is cute and feminine but long enough that I don’t have to worry about people seeing my butt while climbing around and picking up things for my found on the beach project. Plus the color is the best, which probably is what really accounts for it’s lengthy stay in my wardrobe.
Anyway, enough rambling about personal style. Hope you’re having an excellent Tuesday!


PS. Happy first day of autumn!
