My favorite dress

Rewind to autumn, and this is similar to an outfit I wore all through the fall. I have been in the weirdest, most frustrating clothing/blogging/life rut I have ever found myself in. Luckily I have a favorite dress to fall back on that's really comfy and versatile. Its simple but a dress and cardigan combo can never be a bad thing.Vintage dress, shoes and belt. BDG cardigan. H&M tights. Cooperative bag. Lucky ring.

  1. totally dude. I'm feeling like that at the moment. just completely exhausted and kind of negative too. Luckily for you, your go to dress is awesome, as are those loafers, i can never find good vintage shoes for my giant feet.

    Funnily enough those stupidly awesome swedish hasbeens have been making me feel better about little things...they make jeans look so good and are the most comfortable heels. Get the high ones! I felt like it was way too much the first time I wore them and then quickly quickly got over it...the baby pink ones are dreamy.

  6. You look gorgeous, in such a simple and classy way. It's great to have a few easy dresses to fall back on, even when the weather is terrible and you feel awful and unmotivated. I'm trying to build up a decent collection myself!

  7. I am also in a big life rut, it all kind of dawned on me this week and I had a little meltdown! It must be the time of year or something. *hugs* Your outfit is so lovely, we are heading into winter here and I am desparately looking for winter outfit inspiration so this is just what I needed :) xxx

  10. First of all, I just have to tell you how much I LOVED your comment on my wedding post! It is SO TRUE. Being a young, fairly creative couple, we felt so much pressure to have an AWESOME big wedding. I wanted everything to be detail-filled, do lots of DIY things that no one had seen before, and be featured on the wedding blogs! I'm glad I stepped away from that and made everything so simple & pure.

    I love this little dress! It is the perfect staple for any season! What a perfect thrift find. I haven't been thrifting in a while but now I'm itching to go again!

  11. How can a polkadot dress not be your favourite right? :) If I had that I am sure it'd be my favourite too. But a dress and a cardigan even when not put together are always great, so in that combo even better. Plus with the brown accents of the belt and shoes, amazing. You look so so pretty!

  12. Haha, this is pretty similar to what I was wearing! I remember you were wearing this dress the night we went out for drinks and I thought it was super cute then.

    Ruts suck, but they happen (and then go away, hopefully). Sometimes with blogging and dressing I get bogged down with the pressure to be wearing something interesting every time I do a post. It drives me nuts, because when was blogging even about that? Pfff.

  13. That is one great dress and I really love the color! That deep blue is my favorite shade. And the shoes match so great with it! :D

  16. These ruts come and go, but it's frustrating to be in one! This outfit is very cute, you look lovely in it. And you are so right - a dress and cardigan combo can never go wrong :)

  20. I hate life ruts- no fun. I will send you a postcard to cheer you up! :) Also, this dress is sooooo adorable and I love your little loafers too. I was in H&M today and I found the cutest polka dot skirt that reminded me of something you would wear but I couldn't afford it. € = too expensive! xoxo

  21. I've been in a bit of a clothing/life rut as well, which has caused me to buy/wear only new things, but I'm sure you'll be out of your funk soon enough. I can see why that dress is your favorite - it looks wonderful on you! :)

  23. You can never go wrong with a pretty dress, cardigan and spiffing shoes! I feel like I've been running low on ideas for my closet to, I feel like all has been done and I can't see any clear reinvention.

  24. That dress is really pretty - I need some more cute day dresses!

  25. I love this outfit. Even though it's simple. The dress is amazing enough to stand for itself, as are your shoes.
