Free Fallin

You know you aren’t ready for the cold weather just yet when you decide to wear tights with your dress and accidently rip them with your unfiled finger nail.  After creating a hole in my tights, I threw them out and threw my hands up and just said screw it, my pale legs can make one more appearance this fall season.  This fall season, especially in Connecticut, has been weird. One day its cold, another day its warm, or the mornings are freezing and by the afternoon I am shedding off all my layers.  But thank goodness today’s weather is suppose to be in the 60s, so my bare legs will survive.


I think this might be one of the last days in the 60s, so I might as well wear one of my favorite fall dresses from Target.  How can you not be obsessed with this dress?  I love the rich, warm autumn colors and beautiful floral print.  This dress also includes two of this season’s popular trends, lace up and bell sleeves.  The lace up detail adds a little more detail to an ordinary floral print dress, and the sleeve is not just your normal straight sleeve, but has a little flair, puffing out more.  So I will be investing in a new pair of tights (several pairs because I can see the incident above happening again and again), so when the weather decides to stay cold, I can easily transition this dress for the chillier days and wear tights or leg warmers.




Especially early in the morning, you can’t leave the house (or in my case my apartment) without some sort of sweater.  I found this rust colored cardigan at Target on the clearance rack for only $11.  It especially looks great paired against the warm colors of the dress, but It can also be worn with so many other things.



For jewelry, I took somewhat of a risk.  I am not talking about my go-to choker from Francesca’s but my choice to wear a longer necklace even with the dress’s lace up detail.  I thought the long necklace would clash with the lace up detail, but to my surprise, my simple geometric long necklace from Forever 21 nicely balanced out the choker and lace up detail.


If it were summer, I would easily wear a pair of sandals with this dress but because it’s fall, it’s time to embrace the best season of them all, booties season.  Who knew that when I bought these Rocket Dog booties years ago I’d now just be starting to wear them?  I am making up for lost time because I can’t stop wearing them because these basic brown bootie go with any outfit.




Well that wraps up another Liv’s style post.  Here’s to more beautiful fall weather and tights that are rip free.  Let me know in the comments below how you style your favorite dress to make them more weather appropriate.

      Hi Liv, I am Ada. Love your name and that cute haircut first of all. I just recently chopped my hair off into a bob. I admired this cute dress from recently but ended up buying another similar one, instead. Love, love your cardigan though. Looks so cozy. I am a huge fan of Bohemian looks like yours. I do need a choker though. And girl I love Fall. Your leafy background is gorgeous. I just did some pictures in a similar background in my latest blog post.

      I welcome you to stop by my blog as well. I run a style linkup on Thursdays. Please make stop by tonight (after 6.00 PM Eastern time) or tomorrow to linkup with me, pretty lady. Thanks and have a great Wednesday! <3 Ada.

    Love this dress, and it is perfect with your cardi and boots. Tights can be so annoying. I am always snagging them too!

    I absolutely love the dress and boot match! The dress is stunning as well!
    I will be moving to America next year and I can’t wait to wear more dresses as an every day style. Here in the UK it’s normally too cold for it, haha xx
