This comfortable and colorful dress from Triste was just what I needed to cure these cold weather blues! It was so beautiful and sunny over the weekend, so it was perfect timing for the arrival of this dress from Gwynnie Bee.
The Bright Nights Chelsea Dress by Triste is one of my fave things I've tried lately. It gives me color and comfort, plus it fits right in with my style. The 3/4 length sleeves will be great for taking this dress right on into spring! I love the black defined waistband. I usually wear belts, but there was no need thanks to that great little band! It gave the definition I was looking for.
Since it's still cool outside, I paired the dress with leggings for a little added warmth and coverage. I was super excited that it wasn't too cold for shooties though! I have been missing these open-toe shooties, so I was thrilled to finally wear them again.
I wanted a comfortable, casual look for The 1975 concert my hubby and I attended recently. I layered my Killin' It tank with a red and black plaid shirt and faux leather jacket. Since the weather is cooler and lines to get in to see this band always seem to be long and take forever, comfort and warmth were a must! The band is for sure worth the wait though! Anyway, I paired the tops with my fave thicker fabric leggings from IGIGI. I really wear the heck out of these because they are so versatile.
I accessorized with a black studded beanie, black shoulder bag and my newest loves, these black studded double strap booties from AMI Clubwear. These faux suede booties were are too cute not to love! I must say, for a price as low as these are, I wasn't expecting a lot from them. I found them in the Doorbuster section, under $10. With that in mind, I was definitely surprised at how much I loved them and how comfortable they were. They kept my feet happy through the long lines and standing during the entire show!
I knew I was risking it by wearing a new pair of shoes to an event where I knew I would be standing for hours, so I am definitely impressed with how great these did. They have become my new fave pair of booties. I also recently wore them with a dress in my holiday lookbook video here.

For this lookbook, I used a variety of my fave designers, brands and retailers. There are so many great choices available these days, and that really excites me. It makes it easier to find things that fit better with my own personal style.
I chose some cozy, casual pieces from Dress and Dwell and some beautiful dressier styles from my fave, Gwynnie Bee. Gwynnie Bee is the go to place for holiday style- whether you need casual or party looks! I chose IGIGI, Effie's Heart and City Chic pieces from there. I also added a gorgeous Cherry Velvet dress to complete this lookbook. Hope you enjoy!
While I am not a major fan of cooler weather, I am a fan of cute cold weather accessories! I love mixing and matching different accessories to create new fall looks. They are stylish and keep me warm, so it's a win-win. One of my fave ways to style outfits during the colder seasons is to start with a basic, all black canvas and color it in with my fave accessories.
For this look, I chose my fave black leggings, a black tank and black cardigan- super basic! It's also very comfortable, and that is totally important to me.
To complete a fall outfit, I like to add accessories in different colors, textures, prints and patterns. I love playing around with different scarves, boots, hats and bags. A cute colorful coat can liven up a look too. It's so much fun to switch things up to make casual looks or dressy looks, and to try styling different color combos.
For this look, I added some contrasting colors that really stand out against the black outfit. I added brown leather riding boots, a brown felt hat, a bold red bag and a beautiful plaid infinity scarf.
