Layering Into Fall

Dress Line & Dot (on sale), Sweater c/o Margaret O’Leary, Heels Givenchy, Purse Balenciaga, Bracelet Oia Jules, Lipstick Revlon “Plum”

While the weather here in SF is not consistently warm or cool, layers are key. I get cold easily, so I usually bring a sweater with me everywhere I go. We had warm weather this past weekend though, which led me to bring out this pleated chiffon dress. I paired it with a new wool sweater that has subtle leather detailing around the neckline.

On a different note, do you guys have any exciting plans for Halloween? Cool costumes? I wanted to dress up as Audrey Hepburn (mainly because I could pretty much use the things I already own) but I’m still really sick, so it looks like I won’t be doing anything fun. Except eating candy :)

I would also really appreciate it if you could take the time to vote for me to help me win Blogger On The Cusp with Neiman Marcus. I’m in second, but not far behind first place. It would mean so much if you could vote once a day here until Nov. 15th. Thank you!

Love the idea of a sweater over a pleated skirt shirtdress like this…I have a cobalt blue dress in a similar style that I am still able to wear with creative layers like yours here. :)

So sorry you are still sick – it’s definitely going around…rest up!

Love this look, especially this sweater.

And by the way, I picked up this Revlon “Plum” lipstick on your suggestions a few weeks ago and have practically worn it every day since! Good choice :)
