Happy Wednesday! I am coming to you today, a day earlier than usual because Beth has something special planned for tomorrow when she kicks off her Mother-of-the-Groom Dress series. One of my favorite one-and-done fall outfits is a fall sweater dress. Our winters are mild enough here that I can wear a sweater dress all fall and winter. Especially when I pair the dress with tall boots. I love how versatile sweater dresses can be. They can be dressed up and belted to give a cinched waist, or they can go a little more relaxed and casual unbelted, with fashionable sneakers or loafers.

As much as I love a sweater dress, its wearability throughout the day is made more comfortable with a slip. I like the Commando Fitted Slip, it’s light and very smooth. The Enola Dress is not sold in petite, but it’s meant to be a mini, so unbelted, it hits right at my knee. Belted, I have created a slight blouson effect which elevates the hemline.
My shoulder bag is about 15 years old, it’s Cole Haan and it was the first investment handbag I ever purchased when I had a job as an ad executive in an advertising agency. It was my first big splurge! Unfortunately finding a similar for this bag is practically impossible.
But I did find a Cole Haan shoulder bag from this year’s collection that I think is a gorgeous everyday bag to add to one’s collection. The Grand Ambition Side-Cinch Satchel has a classic shape and is very roomy for holding your daily essentials.
