dress: tjmaxx jacket: h&m shoes: nyc corner boutique necklace: sheinside.com
this time of year really gets me. the leaves start to fall and the air gets crispy and there's an overwhelming sense of nostalgia with all the kids going back to school. to me, september always feels like a fresh start.... a time to reinvent yourself, to begin a new and wonderful chapter. with new york fashion week just passing us by, i was itching to get out there and do a style post.
i tend to stay away from horizontal stripes since the illusion is widening, but the contouring side panels along this dress prove it to be very flattering. paired with a quilted-detail bomber and a color-pop necklace, i feel the perfect balance of bad girl edge and playful sweetness.
