Dressing the Part!

J.O.A. Lace Up Dress || Coach Peyton Loafers (similar here, herehere) || 

Well... I've been absent for about a week, but now I am back on track. I got back from Paris late Wednesday evening and unfortunately brought a cold home with me. Vacation was amazing and I am so blessed to have been able to take such a fabulous trip. Expect a full recap soon!

When I woke up this morning my cold was worse, my nose was raw, but I had to go to work... so what's a girl to do? Dress the part. Just getting dressed and doing my makeup made me feel a little better. I threw on my favorite new shift dress, some of my favorite loafers and some statement earrings. I didn't want my first day back to be plagued by leggings and a flannel just because I felt bad. (Don't get me wrong, Saturday I am wearing pajamas ALL DAY!)

I am loving the lace up trend that's taken hold this summer. I think it's taken a backseat to the off-the-shoulder trend, but I think it will stick around a little longer. The cut of this dress is so flattering! The shift dress cut hangs beautifully. I also love that it's woven because the texture makes it look so much more expensive than it was (psst... it's on sale). One more added bonus? It has pockets and not the kind that make your hips wider than they really are, but two cute patchwork pockets with a trendy raw edge right on the front!

These shoes have appeared in a few other blog posts (here and here). I found them at Nordstrom Rack last Christmas and my mom loved them so much that she went back and got herself a pair over Memorial Day Weekend. So there's a chance you can still find the exact pair there! This style of loafer and loafers with tassels are HUGE for the fall. I've seen them everywhere for Fall/Winter 2016 outfit planning. I know it's really early to start thinking about your fall wardrobe, but this is a style that I would definitely invest in!

Hope you have an amazing Friday!

Love you lots,
