Adrien: Why So Weathery?

I really love summer weather but when it's mid-October and still in the 80s I start to get antsy. I'm SO ready for a wardrobe change and it's just not happening. So, here's my compromise: 

I'm wearing my $15 Chelsea & Theodore dress from TJ Maxx which has been more versatile than I could've imagined. (I don't generally have high expectations from $15 dresses.) It's still available in a heathered chestnut color but this one by Cable & Gauge is pretty much the same dress, though only available in small. However! This Three Dots dress is a dead ringer and comes in multiple sizes in black and dark red. It's probably better quality too. I'll also admit that I've been checking out this Eileen Fisher version as a future possibility. The asymmetric/high-low hem isn't a shape I thought I'd like on me, but I do.  I mean, how cute would this little hi-lo hem dress look with faux leather leggings and a sleek pair of chelsea boots

Instead of a sad cardigan I'm wearing my Old Navy chambray shirt which I bought last year. This has also proved to be a surprisingly versatile piece. I don't do a lot of button-up shirts but I've been wearing this one a lot. My wash looks a bit lighter than what they have now, but it's the same great cut. They also have a dark wash version! Also, here's a chambray-ish Target top that Marianne loves. (More about this soon.) Details:

I'm wearing my super-spike necklace from Vince Camuto that is long sold out but this VC necklace is pretty similar and I really love this Rebecca Minkoff spike pendant. I'm also wearing my Bijouone Modern Screw Cuff bracelet which is a pretty shameless knockoff of Miansai.

I'm so happy to be wearing my favorite Madewell boots again! You can still find them on eBay and the like but the new styles at Madewell have the same shape and perfect 2" heel. They're really comfortable. And, of course, I'm carrying my same ole MBMJ hobo like the slacker I am. Sorry! Oh, and PS. This MBMJ shoulder bag just got marked down at TJ Maxx. Eep.
