Well hello Fall! Nice to meet you! I LOVED walking to work today in the brisk temperatures! There is a sense of nostalgia when bundling for fall – it sure is easier than bundling for winter. This look has to be one of my favorites so far! Olivia Palermo (my fashion idol) did a collaboration with Chelsea28 for Nordstrom for the last two season and just CRUSHED IT! The summer collection had so many flowy pieces that the slightest bit of wind gave you your Beyonce moment. This paisley maxi is the perfect piece for your fall wardrobe and is perfect for those cool morning / warm night days. This full look is a complete look on my favorite fall essentials from top to bottom.
Fall temperatures in Chicago can be completely bi-polar so I’m always looking for pieces that can fight the heat and the cold. I love the front slits in this maxi that give the dress some stellar movement and of course a cool breeze. The pattern and colors are so on trend for what we are seeing this season and doubles as the perfect fall camouflage. Event though this dress is sold out – don’t fret, here is one that is similar and at a great price! Its a perfect add to your Fall Fashion Essentials.
Styling for fall is the best part! Who doesn’t love cold weather accessories and warm tones! These suede lace-up flats are perfect for fall and can be paired with just about anything! These are from last season, but this version here equally as perfect! Because I LOVE the colors in the dress, I styled it with this Rebecca Minkoff bag to bring it all together! This bag is amazing – it holds EVERYTHING!
