Dress - All Saints
Jacket - Sisley, thrifted
Boots - farylrobin, ebayBag - Red by ecko, thrifted
So technically this isn't today's outfit. Hubs and I decided we needed a little date night, so I got all gussied up last night to go eat at Cracker Barrel (hee!). I wanted to give this dress one last wear before storing it with my other summer-only clothes. Some people love to have all their clothes available all the time, but I find it easier to have some stuff that works on certain seasons. That way when you turn around, it's like shopping without spending money. You just gotta make sure those items don't become like Tuesday's. Bring those seasonal items to the front when needed.
And speaking of spending money, these Farylrobin booties were an impulse buy. Snagged on ebay as a BIN. I'm usually drawn visually to high heels, but my knees know better than to wear anything with a rise difference that's too great. (And I'm a big listener to my knees) I took a gamble and was pleasantly surprised. Look out Sunday for the full low-down. I'm so happy to be able to pull these out now.
A tan jacket and ankle booties are great methods for autumn-izing a summer dress. This jacket is the best. I'm not-so-secretly thinking about putting elbow patches on it.

In the interest of disclosure, this dress is only down to a $20 PPW. Thankfully the good quality and unique design should have me wearing it for a long time. Not to mention when I get bored I can dye it. And I maybe entertain ideas of dip dying the skirt of this dress a bright pink. I don't even wear pink! Maybe a dusty blue. Hrm.
