Wore: Dreaming of FALL

I know, I know, it's a bit early.
It is far from feeling like Fall round these Texas parts.
But with all of the back to school prep happening, and pumpkins and scarecrows already in the stores, I can't help but start thinking about dressing for fall.

These are my most favorite pair of boots in the whole wide world.
I scored them at Old Navy a couple of years ago, and no other boots have ever compared.
Each year when summer ends and little glimpses of fall begin to show, I start itching to bring them out.
90 degree weather or not, if Hobby Lobby has there fall decor out, I can pull my favorite boots out, right?

I love this "Dreaming of Fall" High/Lo dress from Kintage. 
The color, the fabric, the whole "easy" yet trendy look of it...

Since it was a little on the "too short" side for me in the front,
I decided it was the perfect excuse to bust out my black tights and brown boots. I wasn't sure how it would all come together, but I ended up loving the whole look. The dress and tights could even be worn with either some cute flats, or strappy wedges too.

I love it when you find one piece that is so versatile. 
 
The criss cross straps in back add interest to the back for when I wear it alone like this,
 but I can also see the dress with a cute striped cardigan and/or a scarf when the weather gets colder.


Now if only it would.....
You hear that Texas? time to start cooling down!
Dress:  c/o Kintage
Black Tights: Express
Brown Boots: Old Navy
Jewelry: a mix from my shop & f21

Kintage has a ton of fun, well-priced pieces, from jewlery to purses to dresses.
Find something you love, and use code "laura" for %15 off your order!
{ps this dress comes in a pretty blue color that I was totally torn between!}


Versatile pieces like this dress, tights and boots will be my fall bff's.
What about you? What are some of your fall favorites?

  5. I love fall clothing! It's perfect, because you can layer and look cute, but it's not so cold that you have to wear big heavy coats that cover up your outfit. I'm a huge sweater fan.

    I just bought some new boots for fall. I actually found a pair that works for me. It's so hard for me to find boots, because I have small feet but large calves so they never fit over my calves.

  10. Love this dress - so pretty on you! And can I just say that Old Navy is really stepping it up in their footwear? They have some really nice boots out this season!

    My fall favorites (even out here!) are lightweight, oversized sweaters and a pair of really worn-in jeans. Comfort is key!
