Secret’s out. That’s pretty much all I’ve been doing to switch up my outfits this fall. Totally groundbreaking stuff, right? Well this paisley dress is back (worn sans layer here) along with my favorite army jacket (similar here). I’ve been throwing it over every dress I own while the weather is still warm enough and will be switching it up to faux fur vests once it gets even colder.

P.S. In case you didn’t catch it from yesterday’s post, my Holiday Gift Guide is now live! Check it, shop it, share it – tis the season!
