Striped Shift Dress

IMG_9965-2

Joules Vest c/o, J.Crew dress (old, see more options below), SPANX tights, Steve Madden boots, Prada sunglasses

I wore this outfit on Sunday to brunch and a photo session with some of my favorite blogger babes. We had so much fun discovering this old loading dock and messing around with our cameras. I wanted to be comfy yet chic and spent a good 15 minutes staring at my closet unsure of what to wear. Whenever i’m in this situation my default is always a dress of some kind. This old J.Crew shift has served me well through countless seasons and when paired with this equally cheery vest, it transitions perfectly into cooler weather.

Fun fact: I shrunk this dress in the dryer a few months ago. I love it so much that I opt to pair it with 100% opaque tights and boots to still be able to wear it.

I love that the inside of this hood also has contrasting stripes. Fun, but unintentional! Because I know this exact dress is so old, here are a few other options that i’m loving (and seriously considering picking up to replace this old one i’ve got).

Easy Pattern Mixing

J.Crew blouse (similar), LOFT coat (old, but shop more options below), Topshop skirt (this year’s options), SPANX tights, Hunter Huntress Boots, Prada sunglasses

As I mentioned yesterday, it has been raining non-stop in San Francisco, so my shoe options are limited. I’ve been reworking a bunch of older items and experimenting with pattern mixing even more. This giraffe print skirt has become a neutral in my closet because of it’s classic color palette, and this waterproof striped trench has been worth it’s cost ten times over for it’s versatility. I’m so glad I picked it up way back when.

Other amazing striped trench coats can be found here. It really is one of my most complimented wardrobe staples.

Cold Weather Layering

It has been pouring rain for the last 3 days in San Francisco which has resulted in my Hunter boots getting some heavy rotation, and increased layering. I love putting unexpected pieces together and adore how this faux fur vest looks with this more polished blazer. The polka dot dress adds some fun pattern mixing and the boots tone down the trendiness.

The one benefit of this weather (aside from the natural benefits, of course)? My hair adores humidity! These curls are aux-natural and i’m obsessed with the lack of heat styling that’s necessary.

My dress and faux fur vest are from last season, but shop a few of this season’s options here:

Top 3 Boot Brands for Wide Calves

top 3 boot brands for wide calves2

J.Crew flat boot, Hunter “Huntress” rain boot, DUO Custom Wide Calf Heeled Boot

One of my most visited posts of all time surrounds wide-calf boots, and my never ending search for the perfect pairs. After many years of ordering and sending back boots that just didn’t quite work, i’ve found my staple items, and the brands that carry them. I wholeheartedly believe that every woman shouldn’t be without a basic black riding boot, a pair of rain boots, and a classic heeled leather boot. These have served me well across varying types of weather, through many states and in numerous formal and casual occasions.

My black riding boots are from J.Crew extended calf sizing, and I love them (see my full review here). I have styled them with jeans and skirts, and they are absolute workhorses in my wardrobe. In fact, they have already lasted me through two seasons.

Hunter Huntress boots were a newer discovery. Always wanting a pair, I searched long and hard before finding the Huntress, their extended calf version. While they don’t come in many colors, they fit my 16 inch calf beautifully (review here) and have been worn through countless weekends.

My DUO boots were a purchase of necessity. I spent close to 2 years searching for the perfect heeled, extended calf boot. I finally stumbled across DUO and was drawn into their custom-fit option. I took the plunge and ordered from this UK-based brand and have loved them. They have so many gorgeous, chic styles that you would never be able to tell the boot is extended calf. An absolute lifesaver and a work staple (see my last styling here).

Are there any brands you love for extended calf sizes?
