I’m not the biggest fan of polka dots, but when I saw this super cute fit and flare dress from Nasty Gal I had to have it! The color, the tie in the front, the bare midriff and plunging neckline all had my name on it. I thought it would be the perfect addition to my fall wardrobe. And girlllll, was I right!
Now I had been waiting for the perfect time to rock this dress since I purchased it back at the end of September. What’s a better time than my birthday?! I wanted to pull out all of the stops for my big 33! New hair who dis? Lol! I got a new cut, new color, new cute dress all to celebrate the newness I believe God has in store for this new year in my life. So I pulled my “Knot In This Lifetime Polka Dot Dress” off my wardrobe rack; (Nasty Gal has the cutest names for their clothes) and turned heads on my big day.
This dress has so many cool details that I wanted the focus of my look to be the actual dress. I love accessories but sometimes you have to scale back and keep it simple. So I wore my Dreamer + Doer Necklace, a watch and a few of my favorite Mantrabands.
I wanted to add a small pop of color for a little drama. So I opted for my tried and true Berry Tassel Heels that I got a couple of years ago from Missguided. I love the contrast of the deep burgundy heels and the amber yellow of the dress. Perfect fall combo right?!
Now it’s fall in Chicago which means I definitely needed to rock a coat. I opted for a simple trench coat that I got from Forever 21 earlier this summer. Yes, I was prepping for the fall way back in the summer. I’m THAT person lol!
For makeup, I kept it simple. A little foundation, blush, and a brick brown lippie. My favorite at the moment is The Lip Bar’s “Savage”.
This look made me feel so sexy, flirty and confident, especially with my new bob cut! So far I am loving my new style switch up!
