A Dress to Wear Now & in the Fall

Valentino leopard flats, similar & less expensive HERE 
Celine sunglasses, similar HERE // Michele watch // David Yurman bracelet

Happy Thursday, friends! I am loving this dress (that's less than $40!) for several reasons. It's incredibly comfortable and incredibly versatile. This is how I styled it for the hot weather, but think about how easily you can transition it into fall with booties (or riding boots) and a patterned scarf. I'm wearing size XS. :)

I'm dog sitting for my parents right now... some of you may have seen Lilly on my instagram/snapchat before. She is a bichon and so so cute, but it's like having a toddler around at all times! She follows me around the house, wants me to play with her at all times, and if I ever sit down she's immediately in my lap. It sounds kind of annoying but I actually think it's so cute!! (Although impossible to get work done.)

Check back tomorrow for a really fun post on what I'm bringing to NYFW!
xoxo

  1. Hi Caitlin, love this look! I was wondering what you think about the quality of the dress? Some reviews mentioned that it is a very thin material and that also that it is very short (it was commented that the person is 5"4 and purchased a size M and still found it too short). Just wondering what your thoughts are?
    Thank you and have a good rest of the week! :)

    1. Hey Anne! I didn't think the material was thin but I did decide to wear a slip with it, just in case (I normally wear slips under every dress). Also I definitely didn't think it was short! I am 5'3 and ordered the XS and it was actually a little longer than I prefer haha!

  16. Ok, could you be any more fabulous?! Seriously, love your style and approach to fresh outfits!!! Love this LBD number, you pull it of so easy!

    Also, I'm sure you've had this question asked a million times but I can't seem to find a resolution...I don't wear a lot of foundation on my face, but I still get really bad creases and make up coming off on my nose when I wear any kind of sunglasses. Do you have the same issue? Resolution? I wear high quality makeup and still happens. Thanks so much!! !:)

  17. This is so cute on you!! I saw in your comment above that you typically wear slips. I need to get one and I was wondering if there was one you would recommend?

  20. So pretty and I've been getting into transitional pieces as well and actually have a similar style dress in cobalt blue so this gives me an idea to style. Also I have a bichon and so relate to every time you sit she has to be on your lap.

  21. I need to find a dress that can transition like this! Thank you for sharing, it's beautiful :)

  22. Most small dogs are like your parent's Lilly! I have a maltipoo named Angel and she does the exact same thing, but I think it is just the sweetest <3 Also, I know you've had several other people ask now about the previous comment you made, about wearing slips, and I would also love to know where you get them! I've been wanting a good quality (good material/length, one that won't cling to me) slip for a while, but I always forget to actually shop for one haha! I think a lot of us would love to know what brand you wear, since I would have never guessed you had a slip on in any of your dress photos and that's exactly what I would want!
