Suede Dress and Bow Tie Blouse

Suede [and faux suede] is everywhere this fall–which is great because I can’t get enough of it. Whether on a moto jacket, a skirt, or a classic jumper like this one, suede makes for a chic fall outfit. I had fallen in love with this BB Dakota faux suede dress when I saw it at our local No. 14 Boutique, but the style ran really big and just looked ridiculous when I tried it on.

I ended up finding this one at Abercrombie & Fitch. Their sizing actually works well for petite figures, since the styles are geared more towards teens. I paired it with a bow-tie blouse that I purchased last year from Banana Republic, and some of my favorite go-to accessories.

Arnie told me I looked like a flight attendant, but that’s okay. I think I should stop letting him provide his two cents on my outfits… :)

  • With these below freezing temps, the heat in our apartment can’t keep up. That meant we all had to do some serious snuggling last night. Josie didn’t seem to mind one bit though 🤱🏻 She is a magnet to snuggles.
What are you guys going to stay warm during the polar vortex? I can’t wear enough layers! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Speaking of, I linked this down parka on my Poshmark. After our little one arrived, it became even more important to make room for only the essentials—which meant having only one parka (against my will). Great color and quality, per usual, from @eddiebauer for anyone in need! I linked my whole closet in my bio and on the blog to see more!
