5 Tips on How to Wear the Must-Have Swing Dress for the Fall Season {Fashion Friday}

After Hadara and I visited the pumpkin patch last Friday, I was inspired to come home and dig into my closet for all my autumn fashion sorts of sweaters, scarves and boots.  I just love fall fashion- all the fun combinations of colors, layers and boots!  Every year, I want to add a new dress into my fall/winter wardrobe.  Something comfortable, warm, and easy to layer because to tell you the truth, I don’t like cold legs in winter.  Recently, when I saw the Remi swing dress from Cents of Style, I took the plunge and decided to try this flirty, trendy and fun dress out.

I’ve never worn this style of dress before.  It’s all new to me!  Usually, I wear classic cut sheath or form fitting dresses.  However, I found that this dress is very forgiving, comfortable and can be dressed up or worn casual depending on how I accessorize it.   I’m wearing the Serenity Blue color paired with a plaid blanket scarf and chocolate suede ankle wedge booties.  When it gets colder, I think I’ll even add tights or leggings to layer under the dress.  I think that would be so cozy!

I’m finding that there are many combinations and fun ways to switch this dress up.   Here are some more tips on how you can wear the must-have fall swing dress:

  1. Wear your new swing dress with your go-to pendant necklace and a pair of heels. It’s simple and elegant. Hello, holiday parties!
  2. Plaid! Add a plaid shirt tied around your waist for the ideal festival vibe.
  3. It pairs well with everything from a plaid shirt, to a vest, to a kimono, to a pendant necklace…it’s the perfect finishing touch.)
  4. Layer a cute vest over your swing dress. It provides interesting texture and contrast and switches up your look just a little.
  5. Don’t forget our other must-have accessory this Fall & Winter – the kimono. Layer a heavier kimono with a little length over your dress to add a bit of warmth without feeling bulky. You’ll be right on trend.

Fashion Friday {Crochet Chic}

Today is Fashion Friday . . .   where I create a Fall outfit from my closet to inspire you to get fashion creative.  This week, my daughter and I were inspired from crochet pieces in our wardrobe.  

Crochet clothing is so vintage and has really made a come back.  I’d love to learn how to crochet one day.   I have always loved crochet clothing from vests to sweaters.  It’s a great piece to add to your fall/winter outfit that adds texture, comfy coziness, and warmth!  

I just love this minty crochet cardigan I found at a antique shop about ten years ago.  Seriously, I think it’s from the 1950’s and I can imagine it belonging to a sock hopper paired with a poodle skirt.  I love mixing patterns with texture.  A cream/navy pattern blouse is layered underneath the cardigan.  The blouse’s scarf is an added bonus.   Mint earrings pop with color.  Neutral stone capri pants are disguised under knee high stud suede boots from Dollhouse.  I snagged the boots on Beyond the Rack during last year’s Black Friday sale.  They are so warm with their fur lining.  Totally worth it.  

Hadara wears a scallop crochet poncho she’s had since she was two years old.  Yes, it still fits her! She chose to wear it over a long sleeve white shirt paired with dark blue skinny jeans from Justice.  She couldn’t wait to bust out her black suede boots we found at Burlington Coat Factory.  A hot pink headband and girly bracelet show her personality.  She’s getting so tall.  

As you can see here in the valley of the sun, we don’t have many colorama trees to shed those pretty leaves.  We have to drive up to Northern Arizona for those beauties.  Although, we did have a a cold front move in this week, so hopefully we’ll start feeling more like Fall soon.  

Overall, our photo shoot turned out to be very eventful.  Wait til you hear about it tomorrow! It’s the photo shoot that almost killed me.  Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating, but that’s how it felt.  Today’s post is late, for that reason.  You’ll have to come back tomorrow to read all about it! 

Do you have a favorite crochet piece in your wardrobe?  

Do you know how to crochet?  

Until tomorrow.

How would you like to refresh your children’s closet without spending a cent? Whether you live on a budget or want to save money, I have some great tips for you.  In today’s Fashion Friday video, I show you how I fall refresh my daughter’s wardrobe in a fun and easy way.  Got kids?  Then, this video is for you!

Fall Fashion Friday
Let’s begin. . .   just to let you know . . .  all the items I’m wearing, I already had in my closet.  

Today’s fall outfit of the day is inspired by the American country side.  It’s a little bit of daisies, classic denim and pin stripes.  Brown riding boots kick up some dirt.  A vanilla cardigan wraps up this casual chic look.  


Hadara’s outfit is pink bling country!  A hot pink sequin top with the words LOVE totally expresses her personality.  Her matching hot pink leggings and silver ballerina flats are so fun.
