1-Gingham Dress #1


Hey everyone, I’m back! After a really bad storm hit last week we were out of power for a few days and it really threw my whole week off. So I decided to take the week and hit the re-set button to get my life together and work on a few other projects I have going on. I will be sharing more about that on Friday ;).

With temperatures being in the 60s during the day and falling into the 40s at night, this weekend in Michigan definitely felt like fall. It was the first time I really wanted to style an outfit that felt distinctly fall and this gingham dress from Old Navy was exactly what I was looking for. I featured this dress in the last Wednesday’s Love List and I received it in the mail shortly after. I was worried that it may not fit me, because drop waist dresses don’t always work for my body type, but I was in luck this time. It is so soft and comfortable and fits really well. Now I can truly say that I love it! ;). I can’t wait to style it with tights, boots and maybe even a blazer. With it’s classic gingham print, this is a dress that I know I will get a lot of wear out of for years to come. This time I paired it with a fedora I bought from Target last year and my Minnetonka moccasins, which always feel very fall to me. I love hats, but ever since I cut my hair really short I have felt like I can’t wear them. Every time I would put one on I felt like a boy, because you really couldn’t even see my hair. Now that my hair has grown out a little I feel like I can wear them again, so I think I will be keeping my hair a little on the longer side for a while.

This past weekend was crazy busy filled with yard work, photography sessions, shopping and a baby shower. I’m not gonna lie, it was all I could do to get this blog post up today and I think I see a nap in my near future ;). How about you, did you have a good weekend? I’d love to hear about it!
