Outfit Post: Color Block Shift Dress







Banana Republic Factory Printed Coat (old - similar option at Tulle)
LuLu's Color Block Citrus Grove Dress in Taupe c/o
Eitenne Aigner Riding Boot (old - but LOVE this version from Victoria's Secret and this pair from Nine West)
Sole Society Smythe Sunglasses in Tortoise and Natassia Satchel c/o || Forever 21 Owl Necklace (similar) || oNecklace Cursive Monogram Necklace c/o || Revlon Just Bitten lip stain in "Lovesick" || Sally Hansen  "Cinna-Snap" nail polish

Finally got some new pictures! Yay for sunshine and no rain! :) I wore this outfit last week to work (and shared on instagram) for a client meeting. I am in absolute love with this shift dress from LuLu's. I like that it has long sleeves and isn't too short making it totally work appropriate. The neutral colors will be fun to pair with colored tights and the actual color blocking hits your body at flattering angles. Sometimes I feel like shift dresses can swallow me since I'm so petite - but not this one! I can't wait to style it with a fur vest! 

Kicking that old myth of not mixing black and brown to the curb I paired it with some cozy tights and comfy brown boots. This Sole Society bag is officially attached to my hand at all times. I can't get enough of it. It holds a lot because there is a ton of room on the inside, yet it stays surprisingly lightweight. Oh and did I mention it's vegan-friendly leather? Oh yes - get on it!

I'm counting down the days until Christmas Eve. Not because of presents silly! I'm excited to have a nice break from work and enjoy celebrating the birth of Baby Jesus! Until then, I've got A LOT of Christmas shopping to do!! Happy Wednesday!

  11. hi, what size did you get this in? I am looking to buy it but not sure about the size. If I normally wear a small, would I get the small, or an x small?

    1. This particular one is a SMALL. I have the same dress in an X-SMALL and it's a little short on me. This one feels a bit more comfortable. I hope that helps :)
