We planned a relatively spur of the moment trip up to the Bay area a couple of weeks ago. TJ had some work meetings, so Harper and I decided to tag along. At first, I was hesitant to commit. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to pack up little miss again after the Boston trip. Yet, when TJ mentioned that we could head out to Sonoma for the afternoon on Sunday, I was pretty much sold (wine to me is like a dangling carrot for a horse….). As we began to prepare for the trip I, of course, crossed my fingers for cooler, fall like temps. Yet, no such luck. Like, seriously… it was a heat wave in the 90’s. So, instead of griping about it like I typically do, I decided to pull out this gorgeous marigold lace dress that I recently purchased. I knew that it would keep me cool and that it was incredibly nursing friendly (on a side note, for those of you who ask, I nurse and immediately after taste) with the buttons down the front. The color was what initially sold me, but when I tried it on, the flowy feel and fit made me fall in love. It did exactly what it was supposed to do…. left me feeling cool (well, as cool as you can in that kind of heat), accessible to little miss, and feeling a little fall like with the color…. I also wore it to dinner that evening and simply tossed on this coated moto jacket (excellent price point!).
Right now, there are so many great button-up options available. I own this plaid button-up and it is super soft and extremely comfortable.This black option is a gorgeous piece (at an excellent price point) for a dressier fall occasion. A faux suede dress is perfect for the cooler fall temps, and this white button front minidress would be super cute with the jacket I wore in today’s post or a suede moto. I also think this black utility shirtdress is a great basic… it’s a pricier option, but the brand always makes products that are of excellent quality. I own this dress in white, but think the printed options are gorgeous for fall (and it’s a super comfortable dress). The print on this midi dress is fall perfection, as it is on this navy floral dress. This garment dyed dress is a great casual option.
As far as tops go, I always think that off the shoulder or button front are great options. I love this off the shoulder sweater that comes in several different color options. This plaid off the shoulder top is super cute (also comes in solid colors), and this floral option is great too. There are so many button down options, but a few of my favorites include this stipe boy shirt (I own it and love it), a cute gingham option, this silk stipe blouse, I’m always a sucker for these soft plaid button front tops.
Also… it was brought to my attention that many of the links were incorrect in yesterday’s post. So sorry! They’re all been fixed now.
