A New York Minute

I love coming across dresses that you can style dozens of different ways to create a lot of different outfits (thus, getting a lot of wear out of one dress). The "New York Minute" dress from Juliana's boutique is one of those dresses! You definitely don't have to belt it (I really love it un-belted too), but I wanted to throw in some pops of leopard since I'm kind of crazy over the stripes/leopard combo these days. And let's be honest, I also really just wanted to wear my new leopard pumps (which are now on sale, btw!). This dress would also be cute with flats, riding boots, booties, a blazer, a cardigan or even a vest. Seriously there are so many ways to wear it! I am a little obsessed!! (And if you haven't heard of Juliana's Boutique, you need to check out their new fall arrivals NOW. So cute.)

It's also a little ironic that this dress is named the "New York Minute," since I'm headed to NYC tomorrow morning for fashion week! It's my first time attending and to be honest, I am a whole bundle of emotions: excitement, anxiety, nerves, happiness, etc. I haven't been able to sleep for the past week just thinking about it! Be sure to follow along on Instagram to keep up with my adventures in New York :) I hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day! Thanks for reading.

  36. Hi! A few days ago you posted a pic on insta wearing the exact same dress but it was tagged cheaper! Is this a different dress? I was waiting for an outfit post on that dress so i would know what size to order.

    1. Hey Aleda! I do own a similar dress that is cheaper than this, but it is not as good of quality as the one I'm wearing in this post. I'm happy to send you the link or answer any questions you have via email! Email me at southerncurlsandpearls@gmail.com. :)
