A few weeks ago I shared my favorites from the Olivia Palermo Collection for Banana Republic. I went directly to the store and snagged this black paisley dress. It is even more gorgeous in person! I have a few events coming up and will be wearing this to one of them.
This dress is so versatile that you could also dress is down a bit with a leather jacket as it gets cooler or simply carry a great tote like this or this for daytime which is how I’ll wear it to church or during the week when I need to dress up a bit. For size reference, I’m wearing a Petite XS.
I’ve styled it here with my new stovepipe black leather boots and my favorite burgundy clutch. I seriously have an obsession with this color handbag. I’ve needed a new pair of black boots for two years and just couldn’t pull the trigger. Everything was too embellished or too casual. These are so beautiful and classic, I couldn’t resist. The block heel makes them super easy to wear.
Hope you are having a relaxing Monday because of a long weekend. If not, think of me next week when you do! Here’s to a great short week because they really are the best.
