SWING SET....AND COLD LEGS 1


I fell in love with this swing dress from American Eagle this summer and showcased it in this Summer post HERE. However, I was really struggling with finding ways to wear it and I've seen so many cute striped dress options that I decided I definitely had to make this into a Fall dress as well! I  put together a set of two Fall looks (pt 2 tomorrow) just by changing up the covering portion and the scarf. 

So, the day we did these pictures, it was 60 degrees and my legs were a little chilly. I thought to myself, if it gets any colder, no way will I wear this without tights. But oh I have seen these cute dresses with boots and boots socks all over the net and well, I caved into the cuteness factor no matter how short the skirt is. I admit, this should be more of a tunic on me. The one, or two times, I wish I was shorter!!

Happy Wednesday Lovelies...Half way there!

  15. This outfit screams fall to me! You nailed it, Sista! I think you're taller than me, so I would probably wear the tunic with leggins, but that's just me. Speaking of which, great minds think alike because I bought the black and white striped tunic from Old Navy yesterday!! I need to shop American Eagle more! Have a great day, friend!

  20. Love the boot socks with this! I laughed out loud at the Ann K quote. Seriously! I was always being sent to the office in middle school when we had uniforms because 'my shorts were too short.' I just have long legs people!

  25. Oh the cuteness! You look precious and I love the way you styled it. I actually received a swing dress almost identical from Nordstrom this week and I cannot believe how much I loved it. I don't know why I just thought the swing dress was not for me. Of course when I wore it Wednesday night to dinner with a blue jean jacket similar to yours my 10 year old said "mom, what are you trying to dress younger or what". It's hard when I'm only 28 in my mind!! Have a great weekend.
