Indian Summer

by Jessica Sturdy on October 17, 2011

Does this outfit look familiar? Dresses are hard to work with and make the looks appear completely different, but I switched up my jewelry and accessories. With the sweater having bell sleeves, a jacket isn’t really an option.

Chitown’s weather is starting to feel like fall again after our little ‘indian summer.’ It was in the 80s for the past few weeks, which was kind of a depressing sign that frigid temperatures are right around the corner. I chose to break out this dress again to go to happy hour with some friends.

Don’t mind the weird lighting. I was trying to avoid the night pictures so we wandered into the Trader Joe’s parking garage. Had to do some tweaking to the fluorescent lighting. :)

Dress: H&M (similar)
Belt: Nordstrom (similar)
Shoes: Michael Antonio
Watch: Michael Kors
Bangle: Forever 21 (similar)
Clutch: American Apparel (similar style but way more glam)

When it looks so pretty who needs to mix it up every wear? I love the nudge wedges and gold jewellery. They look lovely against the blue.
