dress: Forever 21 // vest: girls’ section of Target (similar) // boots: Chinese Laundry // watch: Anne Klein
When I started trying to be more inspired about my fall closet, I realized I was missing a basic, but crucial staple item: a long-sleeved jersey dress. Luckily, Forever 21 had one that fit the bill for under $10, and in the color of the year! I’m all about emerald and have been wanting a dress to style around the holidays in the rich hue. Two trends, one stone!
Earlier this week, when I planned to wear this, I knew I wanted to wear my faux fur vest, but hadn’t really figured out the rest of the outfit. I was running late in the morning and threw together a tights and boots combination that I really didn’t love, but wasn’t so offensive that I couldn’t photograph. I think I should have worn my short light brown boots to clash less with the color of the fur, and saved these to wear with my favorite brown circle scarf with orangey accents. Oh well, I’ll have plenty of chances to re-wear this dress!
I think I want to do something super festive and wear it with black and red accessories, and maybe another time with navy and gold accessories. Emerald is so versatile!
