A wee bit o fashion




This, my darling friends, is the Drape-Front Knit Bubble Dress by Garnet Hill, and also the newest member of my wardrobe family.



"But AE Jones, it is too cold outside to wear just that knit dress!"


Fret not, fashion-friendly friends!






Pair it with your favorite blazer... I love this one from Zara:

[Note: the fun thing about color coding right now is that gray and brown work so fabulously well together... so you could definitely pull of a brown scrunch-sleeved blazer or a quiet plaid blazer with something like the dress above.]














Then, my favorite part: a wrap belt. Button up the jacket then throw this wrap belt around the skinniest part of your waist. My choice of color was pink. I'm not normally a "pink" kind of girl, but the splash of color is ridiculously fun. Yellow is great too.

[Note: watch Sydney's tutorial on a fantastically fun way to wear your skinny belt.]











Then, some classy, patterned gray tights...  this pictures looks more black. I would go with a lighter gray
And then throw on a pair of brown/ camel-colored riding boots to finish the outfit:


Voila! Bohemian with a touch of European class is what I like to call it.
