The Dress You Need for Fall + Exciting News!

Dress: Wayf (this dress is almost identical), Heels: Vince Camuto, Clutch: Free People (Old, similar here), Sunnies: Karen Walker
Happy Wednesday lovebugs! Hope you had a fabulous and relaxing long weekend. I seriously can't get over the fact that it's September. Time is flying by so fast and I think I'm even more aware of it since I'm planning a wedding! It's crazy to think when we first got engaged we were 21 months away from the actual wedding date and now we're at 7 months. Anyway! This weekend was relaxing BUT it sort of sucked because I had/still sort of have a terrible sinus infection. I woke up on Friday and had the worst sinus pressure which got gradually worse through the weekend. We didn't do a whole lot but Sunday I did go with my mom and aunt to look for her mother of the bride dress. She actually found it really quickly and it's so pretty! I picked it out and she didn't really like it on the hanger but loved it on. I'm bummed out we didn't get to go to Mt. Vernon but we might try again this upcoming weekend.

This dress y'all--it's seriously one of my favorites. I know it's almost sold out so I linked to another one that's basically identical. I think this dress is such a great length and who doesn't love olive right now?! The lace-up detail is so much fun and just makes it a little more edgy than your average shirt-dress.

Also--super exciting news! Annessa from Seeking Sunshine and I are hosting a link-up that will take place every Wednesday on our blogs! We will be starting the link-up next Wednesday (9/14) so make sure to check out both our sites to participate. We can't wait to see all of your fashionable outfits!

  1. Yay for being so close to the day! That is seriously so exciting! I am in love with this dress on you so fab and so chic! You look so awesome and so ready for fall!

  2. Oh sweetie, I can't believe it's only seven months away! But I know you had planned well so it's going to be great! I absolutely love that dress and the whole look on you sweet pea! And I'm so incredibly excited for your link up, I'll be there!

  3. I'm sorry about the sinus infection, those are the worst! I hope you are feeling better! Yes to this dress! The color, lace-up front -- everything is just perfect!

  6. You are 100% correct, I DO need this dress for fall! I love the lace up neckline and that color is one of my favs for fall! Love everything about this girl! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  7. Stopped by via What I Wore link up and glad I did. What a cute dress. I love olive green yet have nothing in the color in my closet (I may need to change that this fall). I really appreciate the length of this dress because I can wear it to work without a second thought. I do hope you are feeling better.

  8. Ah, man, I hope you feel fully better soon! I'm glad your mom was able to find her dress for the wedding, that's another thing checked off the list! I can't believe how fast time is going either. It's crazy, I went to bed last night, waking up at 5:30 am and was so confused. I thought it was still night because it just felt like it flew. Each day it seems to be going faster and faster! Anyway, I love this dress! The color and lace-up detail is so lovely and perfect for fall. I love how you've styled it with the camel accessories, they add such a richness to the look. Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a wonderful day!
