Fall Dress Options.

     I'm so excited to be featuring my beautiful suitemate Caroline in today's blog post! Her adorable outfits have been featured on the blog before. :-) Check out both of our takes on casual fall dresses!

My outfit details:

Dress: Romwe {such a steal!} // Blazer: Ann Taylor // Shoes: Steve Madden  // Bag: {Bought on my trip to France this summer, very similar here} // Sunglasses {old} // Necklaces: c/o Taudrey, c/o Cardinal Gift, Kendra Scott // Bracelets: c/o Taudrey // Lips: NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Sponge Cake

Caroline's outfit details:

Dress: J. Crew Factory // Belt: {old} // Boots: DSW {similar here} // Bracelets: Alex & Ani // Mug: {A gift from yours truly :-) } 

     Earlier this past week, I found myself having an afternoon where I just couldn't focus on anything that I needed to do. I had gone to the gym earlier in the day, and I was still wearing my workout clothes and feeling a little bit "bleh." I knew that the perfect afternoon pick-me-up would be to hop in the shower, do my make-up, and put on a pretty dress! Sometimes getting a little dolled up is exactly what I need to start feeling more productive! (Wearing this outfit definitely helped me to stay awake in my three hour night class that evening...)

     I am obsessed with this pretty blue and white dress from Romwe. The print is too pretty, and it's the perfect type of dress to wear at all times of the year! I would pair it with a cute pair of sandals in the warmer months, and now in fall I loved layering it with one of my favorite blazers and a pair of fringe booties. I think that this outfit would be the perfect fall date night look!

      Caroline also looks wonderful in her plaid shirtdress! Caroline's style is a bit more laid-back then mine, but she always looks so put together and naturally gorgeous. The shirtdress that she is wearing would be a perfect option for Thanksgiving dinner, or any other upcoming holiday festivities! 

     Hope that all of you will have a wonderful weekend! We are all so close to Thanksgiving break... that is something to be thankful for!! ;-)

  2. So in love with your blue and white dress! How was your experience shopping on Romwe been? I have always wanted to shop from there, but always seem hesitant.

    I hope you have a great Friday!

  3. Y'all both look adorable.
    I have been wanting to order from Romwe for sometime because wasn't sure of the quality.
    I order pretty much everything online so I may have to bite the bullet and end up ordering something from there because this dress is too cute.
