A New York Love Affair :: Colorblocked Shift Dress

I’m back! Did you miss me? I missed you! Sorry for being extremely M.I.A. on here lately (but thanks for following along on insta in the meantime!). When you work a 9-5 (which in my case is more like an 8-7), blogging can and will take a backseat when things get busy. But that said, fall is my favorite time of the year and I have a lot of exciting content coming your way! So stay tuned…

I love a good shift dress. Ever have those mornings where you aren’t interested in getting out of your pajamas and into a fitted dress, or pants that dig in to your waist when you sit down? Those are the days for a shapeless shift dress (because it kind of feels like you’re getting to wear your boyfriends oversized t-shirt out in public – which is basically pajamas – score!)

A good shift dress can also be an extremely versatile piece. Wear them with tights and booties on a chillier day, or my new favorite way – bare-legged with over the knee boots! I chose to give my shift dress a little edge by throwing on a leather jacket. The jacket is structured, so it gives a little shape to my otherwise free-form dress. I’d also try swapping out the leather for a sleeveless vest – my favorite trend this fall.

I picked up this darling color-blocked shift at the LuLu’s Style Studio event during NYFW this fall (recap here). And, because I know you all love shopping as much as I do, I took the liberty of linking to a couple more must-have shift dresses here:

Happy shopping!

      thanks Alecz!! This Express leather jacket has definitely gotten some mileage. I’m hoping to upgrade later this year too :-)
