Casual Friday: Easy Dress & Moto Jacket
Hello all!!! I am finally back from a very unexpected and long hiatus. If I told you all the things that have been going on lately, you probably wouldn’t believe me!! I will talk more about some of these things soon once I have a chance to fully absorb everything myself.

Even though I haven’t had much time for blogging, I have really missed you all – I have so much fall fashion I want to share and hope to get some more photos done soon. Fashion this season has been really amazing, and I have found some great pieces. In my stress, I have also done way too much shopping. Bad things for my wallet, but cool things for my wardrobe. Ha, ha!
|Dress: The Tiny Closet Shop|
One of my favorite fall casual looks is an easy dress paired with a moto jacket and comfy booties. This look isn’t about following trends. While I love playing with trends because they sometimes encourage me out of my box, more and more, I choose clothing based on my visceral reactions. Do I say “ooh” or “ah” when I first see a garment? When I try it on, does it feel good? Is it comfortable? Does it make me feel how I want to feel in the given moment? I try (and often fail) to also balance those visceral reactions with an intellectual assessment of my wardrobe needs. Does this piece serve a place in my wardrobe? Will I wear it a lot or only on occasion?
This dress is one of those pieces that fulfills both emotional and practical needs for me. It will definitely become a weekend warrior in my wardrobe!
|Clutch: The Limited (old)|
This dress is from a small capsule collection created by blogger Natalie of The Tiny Closet. I absolutely love her aesthetic – it’s minimalist with an artistic twist.
The Weekender dress that I am wearing here is the perfect navy color, and the v-neck and double thigh slits give this dress such a free and easy feel.
|Cuff: The Limited|
|Sunglasses: Tory Burch|
It is a little sheer, and I wish it was lined or in a slightly more opaque fabric, but otherwise, this dress really is perfection. I paired it with a black slip for more coverage, but for an evening out, I would pair with a low-cut body suit to get the full effect of the dress.
As of right now, The Tiny Closet shop only offers sizes XS-XL. I am wearing an XL here. Because the fit of the dress is so easy, it could likely accommodate up to a size 20/22.
