dress urban outfitters, jacket anthropologie, belt vintage, boots boutique 9

This outfit was such a  happy accident. My photography class was having another exhibition and I wanted to dress up. I hadn’t worn this dress in a while, and I’m not sure how much I’ll wear it this winter. It’s pretty lightweight and needed another layer on this crisp fall day.  I didn’t want to go the usual route with a black sweater, so thought I’d give this striped jacket a try. I’m not practiced at mixing patterns and was a little unsure about the pairing.  But I received tons of compliments, so I must have gotten it right! The stripes and dots are a playful combination, and I’ll be sure to try more mixing of prints in the future.
