And now for the second half of this Joie Addington striped dress series… So seeing the pictures makes me think that I like it better simple like I wore it here. I think. But I really like this option, too. And I know that I’ll wear plenty of variations of this dress with different leggings and various jackets this winter.

all saints leggings (in grey), strappy heels (awesome similar pair), chanel clutch (look for less), keeper necklace



So I belted the dress in and added my most favorite jacket in my closet right now, the helmut helmut lang harrow sweatshirt jacket. It is my most favorite thing and I grab it to throw on over everything if I even think the temperature might dip down a touch. SO soft and amazing quality so it looks legit. And the lines are incredible. Oh and it’s currently 25% off at The Dreslyn right now!!!  The grey color is amazing as well. I think I need it.




You can’t have too many strappy black heels imo and I really love this pair by Marais USA. And I know my Chanel is kinda spendy, so if you’re looking for a really good look for less it would be hard to beat this quilted Rebecca Minkoff bag.




Back to my Helmut jacket being 25% off right now. Well it’s not just the jacket – it’s 25% off of everything at The Dreslyn because it’s their Friends & Family sale starting today through 11/3! Go ahead and fist bump me. LOVE this twisted sweater dress and I haven’t seen this floral Equipment blouse before – it’s fabulous. And this leather sleeve sweatshirt may just be the best looking sweatshirt I’ve ever seen. So go take a peek and get your 25% off with code “WITHBENEFITS”.

Fucking run to Furbish right now for the Sally King Benedict Pop Up Shop. Quick. There are some originals and some prints (Sally’s first ever prints). As many of you know the last two years I have hosted SKB pop ups here and let me just tell you that last year we sold all 30 or so paintings in under 45 minutes. It was chaos.

So get your face on, y’all. I have three of Sally’s faces and love them. The abstracts are super fun, too. Now Go!

Today’s What I’m Wearing post is the first outfit of a two-parter. I could really do this Joie Addington Dress a million ways. It has good lines, is crazy soft (part of the Soft Joie collection), and is durable so it doesn’t get all stretched out like similar dresses can do.

So for this look I just kept it really simple and paired it with my favorite booties for a casual look.




And I wanted to keep the outfit neutral so I paired it with my Dooney & Bourke Clayton Satchel that D&B was so generous to gift to me. I have the cognac color but it’s offered in 13 different colors! I love this bag – roomy and a great structured shape.




Soooo about this photo below… to save time I just decided to start adding my other pieces for the second look right there on the bench. Then this guy walked by. I can’t even imagine what he was thinking…
