Styling a Dress for Fall + Fashion Frenzy Link-Up!

Dress: Madewell (on sale!), Hat: Nordstrom (old, similar here), Booties: Vince Camuto
Happy Wednesday loves! How excited are you that Thanksgiving is tomorrow?! I have a bunch of stuff to wrap up at work before we leave for the Outer Banks at lunchtime. I can't wait to share pictures from the beach! Even though it's going to be a little chilly, it's always so gorgeous to photograph! I'm going to be totally honest--I'm not a good cook at ALL but I really want to contribute something yummy to Thanksgiving dinner this year. If you guys have any suggestions for easy but good recipes I would love to hear!

This dress would actually be perfect for Thanksgiving especially if you live somewhere a little warmer. The temperature dropped about 30 degrees here in VA from the time I took these photos so I would definitely have to pair some tights and a coat over top if I was going to wear this dress in this weather!

I'm going to be missing Friday's post so I can totally soak up the time off and enjoy my family but I hope y'all have an AWESOME Thanksgiving! Make sure to join our link-up today and I'll see you guys Monday!

  1. Such a cute dress! It was so crazy how the temperatures dropped over the weekend, it's freezing now! Enjoy Thanksgiving at the beach! You should totally make the spice wine cocktail I posted yesterday. It's easy, doesn't require any cooking and delicious!
