i went to francesca's the other day on my way home from class and am thrilled that i did. why? because i got this aweeeeeeesome dress i'm wearing below. seriously, i with i could wear it everyday. and the best thing about dresses? you can wear them in any season. that's right! i buy dresses year round because i can wear them year round. for the fall and winter, i wear dresses with tights and sweaters:

dress: black with red polka dots, francesca's
sweater: heather grey open-front, JCPenney(?)
belt: brown, target
necklace: elisabeth ashlie jewelry
tights: black, francesca's
shoes: grey-blue ana marino's, TJ Maxx

[sorry about the pretty terrible photo quality]

so, there you have it. a simple way to wear a dress in the fall/winter. throw on some tights and a sweater and some awesome shoes, and you're set! 

happy tuesday!
