Outfit Inspo With My Favorite Dress + More!

Happy Monday everyone! We had a fairly busy weekend, a lot of decluttering and basically taking everything out of our attic. Yes…the attic saga continues. This is a MUCH bigger job than I anticipated. We did spend some family “bonding” time together (that’s code for helping me clean) LOL! I’d like to congratulate Sandy on guessing that! Then we headed out for dinner with the family. Then it was back to reality…

One of the Most Popular items for the past few weeks has been this cute T-shirt dress from Old Navy, so I thought I would show some ways I am actually wearing it. BTW, the dress is only $12.97! What a bargain for so many looks! See it here.

It’s gotten a little cooler here and we southern girls waste no time in pulling out our boots, scarves, and sweaters! It’s not quite cool enough for tights, so I am showing the “real real” of What I Wore. I styled my dress with a denim jacket and a pair of tall brown riding boots for the first outfit. You can see how I styled it with booties and a leather jacket here.

My favorite way of styling this dress has been with a long black cardigan. I got the one I’m wearing from Steinmart a couple of years ago, but here is one that is very similar. I really like this look and I think it screams Fall!

I kept my accessories minimal, I wore a bangle, the Esther cuff, and a pair of leaf earrings. I could have added some color with a cute necklace or another choice of handbag, but I grabbed my dupe LV since it holds everything I need. When I’m running errands in town, I prefer a bigger handbag.

These Ripley boots by LifeStride are perfect for an everyday boot. I personally like a 1-inch heel with my tall boots if I’m running errands or having a casual lunch with the girls. I love my higher heeled boots, but for comfort, I will grab these every time. Especially when I’m wearing skinny jeans and a blouse or sweater. Add a scarf, ruana or wrap, a vest, or a cute jacket and you have a really cute casual weekend outfit.

Here is a couple of pics I snapped up last week when I was shopping at the Belk sale. (Do not pay attention to the dirty glass) I think I might need to take glass cleaner with me when doing try-ons lol! We all have had a kid that likes to touch the mirror when we have been trying on clothes and this mirror certainly showed the artwork of someone’s toddler ha!

The green Crown & Ivy top is on sale for $14.99! See it here. The new dupe Gucci Belt has been a favorite on the blog also, see it here.

What do you girls think about the different outfits with the dress? Does it help when I offer different ways to wear an item? I know we all want to get as much wear as we can out of an item and seeing different ideas sometimes helps.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today, I hope you girls have a great Monday and don’t work too hard! Barry is off today, so we are going to try and finish up the attic and garage. After that, we are picking out a fence to fence in our backyard. YAY! I will be so glad to start back on these upgrades to the house! Be safe everyone!

    Good Monday afternoon! I do enjoy when you do posts that show multiple ways to wear a piece of clothing. My favorite today is the dress with the long black cardigan and boots. I bet you will be glad to get the attic clean out done. Troy and I worked on some of the boxes that we still have from our move. We are making slow progress but at least it is progress. The hardest part is to get him motivated. I tell him that it is like trying to get a 10 year old boy to clean his room. Once we get into the project it is fine but he starts out kicking and screaming, lol. I have today off and had a nail appt and did some errands so it has been a productive day.

      Yes girl!! Barry is the same way, I have to pin him down and hope he complies 😂😂. Sounds like you had a great day so far, and I loved it with the long black cardigan!! I’m trying to show different ways to wear pieces so we get our $$ out of the item. Thanks for the comment ❤️

    Beverly, I love when you show different ways to wear pieces. I seem to get in a rut and wear the same thing, I am really trying to mix up my closet. So excited I will be in your area next week, my daughter goes to the med school and we are coming to visit. Trying to figure out what to pack since I am in the North and it is starting to get cold here. Your cold is not the same as ours.

      That’s awesome!! I traveled for awhile and I was up in the Northern States a lot- it snowed so much I bought a Jeep to be safer. Needless to say, I’m a pro with snow- Not so much with ice lol. So excited that your daughter is in Med school. There are a few med school’s near us. A newer one is Campbell University. That was my husbands law school. waaaaayyyy back in the day lol. Have a great day!!
