Closet Classic

I don’t know what it is but fall always makes me lures me back to classic pieces. I gravitate towards classic and simple looks, which is always an easy choice to look pulled together. Which I need right now since we are on full-steam ahead this week. We were smart enough to plan our moving right around a huge Oktoberfest event in downtown McKinney (where our shop is) that just happens to be this weekend. Calendars shmalendars, I say! I’ll sleep when I’m moved, right?
Back to this little olive number that I promise is olive but photographed grey, it’s such an easy dress to throw on and feel pulled together instantly. And when I’m running around this week juggling the move and work, I can’t argue with that. Anything that makes me look organized and like I know what I’m doing? I’ll take it. In all 4 colors

    As always, I adore this look! So polished and put together yet so easy, just the perfect mix. And huge congrats on the new house, moving is always so stressful but the hard stuff is almost over and then you get to focus on the best part, decorating!

    I think this is flattering, but DANG is it short. The shirttail effect makes it even shorter. It’s cute, but I think it would be better a little longer!

  5. Shirt dresses are my go-to during the fall months! I love the ease of them and totally with you on the classic pieces! I have been eyeing that Tory tote- do you like it? Is that the small or larger size?

    I’m with ya. I always want simple and classic in the fall. Maybe it’s because summer was all about color and pattern!

    I actually like that you didn’t belt the dress! It’s still short enough that it keeps it fun and not frumpy.

  26. Can I also ask how the sizing was on this… I’m usually an 8 and see Nordstroms says to order one size down… did you find that to be the case?

      Magdelena! I just now saw this — so sorry! I stayed true to size and went with medium and it fit perfect.

      • Not to worry! Debating whether to add this to my November budget… I live in Northern California so not sure if it will be too cool by then for a shirt dress.

  27. I love all of your looks! You have a classic, modern spin to everything you wear! You could wear a Gunny Sax and make it gorgeous!
