And who says you can't wear maxi dresses in the Fall?! This dress is the ultimate twist on a maxi dress that is perfect for Fall! It is part shirt dress, part maxi, and part glam dress. Pretty much it is all of my favorite things in a dress in one.
I saw this dress & it instantly screamed my name! Here's why...Part of me loves being glamorous and over the top. The other, loves Earth tones and playing it neutral. Lastly, there is also a part that lives for being comfortable, and for me I love flowy dresses that allow me to just relax. Side note: If you haven't added Olive to your Fall wardrobe, you are missing out!!!
Do you ever have moments where you see a dress like this and you are hesitant to bring it home? Well, yeah that's me all the time. This time I pushed myself to step out of my normal and bring out my inner glamorous Taryn. I know in most cases I will say to myself, where am I going to wear that? Or there's a slit in the dress, is that to much leg for a mom to wear? These are literally the battles I am having while in the store. HA! I pushed myself to shut up, and buy the dress!
So I challenged myself to step outside the box this upcoming Fall and make a few appearances with this dress. I challenge you all the same! Is there a style of dress that inside you want to wear, but keep talking yourself out of? Well...this time live a little and DO IT!
Here are a few places I probably wear this to! Hopefully this will give you some ideas if there is a similar style dress you need help figuring out where to wear it to!
Date Night: Occasionally Rick and I will glam it up (because he knows I love to dress up, so he will appease me haha). Go out to a nice dinner with your babes. Dress up just because! This will definitely get his attention, and still is comfortable enough to eat all your favorite pasta dishes!
Fall Wedding: This would be perfect for a semi-formal wedding! What I like about this dress, is that the slit doesn't go to far up, so you won't feel like you are giving a peep show and makes it still appropriate wedding attire. I may also wear this to a rehearsal dinner for a wedding that I am in next month.
Birthday Dinner: I have my 30th birthday coming up! While I don't think I will wear this dress as main party dress. I do think I may wear this as one of my birthday dinners (yes, I will be having multiple celebrations haha!)
Concert: Do you have a concert to go to that is a more laid back or comedy show? This would be a great dress for it! Now I don't advise wearing this to Drake/Future as it probably wouldn't be the most comfortable. But a great concert would be if you are checking out R.Kelly's latest tour. Kevin Hart is also on tour, and this look would also look great!
I am strongly encouraging you to buy that dress you have been on the fence with or struggling where you will wear it too! Often when Fall comes around people instantly think boots, leggings, and sweaters. And while I definitely love that look, it's always ok to switch it up and glam it up even in the Fall.
