[ vest, bracelet - J. Crew, purple dress - Rebecca Taylor (similar here), boots - Lucky Brand, Aurum Necklace - Jewelmint ]
This past weekend had that real fall feel... leaves totally changing and falling fast and falling asleep to the howling winds. Fall means layering and layering means lots of colors, fabrics, patterns, and textures! I really love this dress and just because it's short doesn't mean you have to hide it in the back of your closet! (A little secret for you... I actually found this Rebecca Taylor dress at a T.J. Maxx! Never give up an opportunity for a designer deal.) The boots (seen here and on Ashley here), puffy vest and scarf kept me warm for the night and really let's that unexpected majestic purple pop!
