in collaboration with Zappos
For weeks I’ve been watching with envy as girls all over the country have started busting out their wool jackets, cozy sweaters, and scarves. It’s just now starting too cool off over here in California, but I’ve been wracking my brain for ways I can dress for fall when it is still warm out. I got a lot of outfit inspiration while I was at NYFW a few weeks ago. It’s funny because we are there to see shows with Spring 2017 collections, while wearing (mostly) fall looks, but the weather hadn’t quite changed to fall yet. One thing I noticed while scoping out all of the great fashion was the pairing of sweater dresses and neckerchiefs. My goodness I love this trend. I decided this is the perfect pairing to get away with dressing like it is fall when it is warm outside. I found this sweater dress at Zappos, and the super soft sweater material of this dress along with the rust color is an easy nod to fall attire. And a shorter dress and pushed up sleeves keep my from sweating to death. While this dress would look great with a necklace, adding an on trend neckerchief mimics the look of a warm scarf without the unneeded warmth. This combo makes it a little easier to get in the fall mood on my side of the country.
Have you had a chance to sign up for the new Zappos Rewards yet? My goodness, it’s convenient. I ordered these boots in 2 different sizes, and because I am with Zappos Rewards, I got their free-1-day-shipping (it has made me such a shipping snob. “wait..this takes 3 days to ship?! TOO LONG!” 😉 ). I found that the pair 1/2 size bigger than my normal size fit best, and I just realized with their rewards program that I can get free UPS pick-up for my return. It’s this busy momma’s saving grace!
