Red Dress

Another weekend in the books! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I actually had a pretty chill weekend. Friday I did go to a concert with my parents at Orchestra Hall. I am hoping to get that look up on the blog soon. I did post about it on my Instagram over the weekend so check that out. The rest of the weekend I was solo mom as D was out of town. Saturday night I headed over to my parents' house for dinner and to just hang out. I also got to see my niece and the girls got to play together, which is always fun. Sunday I had intentions of taking Reese somewhere to play but I was just exhausted and couldn't decide where to go, so we had a lazy day. Plus side was the Vikings won so #SKOL

This dress is one of my most favorite pieces in my closet right now. It's rare to find a dress that so effortlessly transitions between seasons and from day to night. I have worn this dress to work and to blogging events. In the heat of summer and in the fall. The silhouette is so classic that I think it just works in almost any occasion. When it was warmer I would pair it with these block sandal heels. As the temperatures cool I would wear this with a high knee or OTK brown or black boot. What initially really sold me on this dress was the knotted front. Very on trend, of course, but also I think it helps create a smoother line. You see all those bodycon dresses and they all cute, but I don't have the figure to make those work. I need some forgiveness and this knot does just that. It helps create the illusion. I also bought this one size bigger so it would hang a bit more. I do that sometimes with dresses like this. If it hangs right and does not look misshapen it is more flattering. Also, a looser fit is better for work. With a red dress, everything else should be simple. I paired it with my go-to everyday necklace and a small cross body bag.

Bag| I bought it at a festival (similar / similar)


What do you think? How would you style this for fall? I would definitely layer it up with a suede moto jacket and some OTK boots or a bulky duster cardigan and some booties.
