Black Out

quilted leather jacketKeeping it short today, you guys! I just drove back from school, and have a ton of work to catch up on! It also doesn’t help that the Monday following an extended break is always the worst. We’ve just had such a fun time with our families, all while enjoying great food, and now it’s back to the real world! black striped dressperfect striped dressLast year during Thanksgiving it was absolutely freezing, and there was so much snow on the ground. This year, however, was a different story! The temperature was around 60 degrees, and because I didn’t have to wear a coat, I opted for just a poncho.

Since the snow hasn’t yet arrived, I’m all about embracing bear-legs until the time comes. Yes, I might be a little chilly, but I think it’s worth it – especially since I’ll be covered from head to toe over the next few months. I purchased this striped dress over the summer, but it’s so versatile and pairing it with my quilted leather jacket totally makes it fall appropriate!cute dresses for date nightcute fall outfit ideasstriped swing dress 1I’m thinking that when it gets cold, I’ll pair the striped dress with tights and this wrap coat that I picked up last winter!tan rebecca minkoff zip crossbodystriped swing dressHope you enjoy your Monday!

    You are much more brave than I am! I don’t think that I would be able to wear that dress in 60 degree weather. You look gorgeous, though, and I love the sandals!

      Thank you! I wore this jacket every weekend for like 2 months straight! And I know – 60 degrees was wonderful, so I was very happy!
