Little Joie Dress.

Vince Leather Scuba Jacket + Joie Tahoma Dress - Grace Atwood, The Stripe

This was one of those dresses where I kinda cringed when I bought it (as it’s just so typical of me, I have so many little floral dresses). I’ve been trying to buy more separates, and more casual and/or edgy pieces to give the feminine stuff I already own a twist. Alas, I saw this Joie dress and couldn’t resist it, but I no longer feel badly about it as I’ve been wearing it non-stop. I actually wore it twice this weekend. First to a fashion week party with wedge booties and a red bandana around my neck, and then to a bridal shower the next day with my Valentino Rockstud flats. Hey. I guess sometimes we have to just stick to what we know and love. I can’t wait to wear it with a black leather jacket, tights, and my over-the-knee boots once the weather cools off.

I hope you guys had a good weekend. I had a bunch of dinners and fashion week stuff, and that baby shower in New Jersey. It was fun to have a little family time in the middle of all that craziness! 😉

PS – based upon your feedback on the dating outfits + last week’s Q&A, I’m going to try to remember to add a “Look for Less” section to every outfit post. I hope it’s helpful!

Look for Less: Jacket (so cute, I actually have this one too from a project I did with Kohls) // Dress // Bag // Sneakers

    LOVING this dress. You will get so much wear out of it in all seasons. Will look really cute with booties and then tights in the fall!

    Been loving your outfits lately 🙂 I love seeing you wear those shoes after The Trunk Club and the jacket and dress combo is perfect. Quirky pop of red with the bag!

    I love this dress!! And you’ve already worn it so many different ways that there’s no way it was a bad buy – even if it’s not totally different! haha

    Ah now, you can never have too many pretty floral dresses…in my opinion anyway – I love them! And you look so great in it, money well spent I’d say – love the jacket too! 🙂
