Little Black Dress for Fall


Good morning, everyone! It’s *almost* Friday and I couldn’t be happier. I’m leaving today for my friend Sara’s bachelorette party and we are headed to Florida – a bit ironic because we’ll all be in bikinis on the first day of fall, haha! Anyway, this look is one of my favorites for transitioning into (hopefully) cooler weather. You guys have seen me wear this black dress from Nordstrom over and over – it’s such a versatile dress, and I own it in a couple of different colors (I also own a few colors in the long-sleeved version, too). It’s so easy to change the look of the dress with different accessories… add a hat, switch out booties for tall boots, switch out the cardigan, add a poncho, etc. Nordstrom is always my go-to store in the fall, whether it’s for basics or fun accessories!

What is everyone else up to this weekend?!

    Love everything about this outfit.
    How do you get your hair not to be frizzy?

  8. I am in love with the medium Chloé Faye bag but after seeing this one on you, it’s SO cute and multifunctional! I love how easily you style this dress too. You dress it up and down. Can’t wait to start transitioning my fall wear back into my closet. xo

  9. How gorgeous is that dress! I’m also loving the striped cardigan!

  10. Love this look so much! Having staple pieces like that dress is such a necessity in your wardrobe as it can create so many different looks. But I am especially loving the long cardi & bootie look for fall!

    Wish it was cooler here in Texas, but I don’t know when that’ll happen, haha! Hope you have a great time at the bachelorette party!!

    Love the new blog! Have a great time in Florida! For some reason, I’m not getting the emails for new posts even though I subscribe and the subscribe link doesn’t work.

  13. Love that dress!! Your hair is so pretty also!

  14. I love this dress and Love the style. Very form fitting. If you do a lot of walking or dancing… I purchased this dress in pink to wear to a wedding. At work I can wear it with flip flops for a casual dress or with dressy sandals and a necklace to dress it up.

  15. I adore everything about this Outfit! You are right, that dress is super versatile and that midi length Cardigan is to die for!

  16. Hat size do you wear in this dress?! I want to order but not sure about sizing!

      I have the same question!

    • I’m wearing a size XS 🙂 But if you are unsure, I would size up – since it can be a little tight because of the ruching!

  17. Wow wonderful black dress my fav color.
