Bringing a Summery Dress into Fall

I'm going to a meeting today at the school where I'm student teaching.  I'll be meeting a lot of other teachers that I haven't yet met and I may even get to meet the principal! So, I dressed with them in mind.  I wore the bright dress and fun tights to convey that my personality will work well with children, but I grounded the look with the gray sweater and simple accessories. 

Faux Leather Moto Jacket: Rue 21 (Gift)
Dress ($10), Belt ($12) & Tights ($7): Target
Sweater: NY&Co (Gift)
Madden Girl Booties: 6pm.com (Gift)
Necklace: Poshlocket via Casual Chic Kiki Giveaway
Bracelet & Ring: Borrowed from My Sister


I've worn this dress before here, here, and here.

I guess this necklace really isn't all that simple and is actually quite fabulous. I love all the sparkly layers.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, today I'm thankful for my Little Miss. She's my little bundle of energy and attitude. She goes from giving me the evil eye if she doesn't like something I'm doing to showering me with hugs and kisses in a matter of minutes. Just last night, she started giving "pretty eyes."  She was looking at Daddy and he was talking with her and she suddenly smiled really sweetly and blinked her eyes rapidly. lol She's going to have him wrapped around her tiny little finger!

Love the layered look - I think it will be perfect for your day! I also love that necklace too - ones that are pre-layered for me are the best.

We are lucky to be mothers to such sweet little girls (and guys)! Toots is the best thing I've ever done, no doubt!

This is absolutely adorable! The classic shape of the dress, paired with the cardigan, make for a very classy look. But I love how you added the patterned tights for a little fun edge. Those booties are amazing as well - so cute!

Thanks so much for the nice comment on my blog! I hope you do use the Thank You Jar idea--it really makes you appreciate the little things.

Those tights are the cutest things I've seen in a while! I like that you look professional, but still hip and young.
