i’m wearing: f21 faux leather accent colorblock shift dress (sold out but this is cute and i also LOVE this one), h&m bracelet, ann taylor spotted clutch and coach patent leather tassel shoes (old but i LOVE these…hopefully they are more comfortable than mine).

i have been DYING to wear my new fall clothes but it has just been WAY too hot. but at least i finally got a chance to wear this colorblock dress that i’ve had in my closet for a while now. it has faux leather detailing around the armholes which i love. these shoes on the other hand are not the most comfortable shoes i own. i’ve had them for over a year now (picked them up at nordstrom rack) and have worn them maybe twice. sadly, the tassels come undone after like three steps and my feet kill me after about four steps. i immediately had to change into my new ann taylor heels after taking these pics.

    Beautiful classy dress!!! Too bad that the shoes are uncomfortable they look really cute. ThatΒ΄s the problem with shoes I have a pair of converse sneakers that kill my feet!!!

    That’s the worst when you can only wear shoes for an hour tops. You look super hot though! Love the dress!!

    Gosh, I wish it was hot in England. We basically did not have a summer this year…just rain and cold. πŸ™

    So in love with this dress – you know I’m a sucker for anything black & white right now! Cannot believe you found it at F21 πŸ™‚ Also like that you kept the accessories simple…it’s perfect!

    I prefer you in a little more color and structure. I can relate on buying shoes that are less than comfortable. Why not try to consign them? Try to stay cool!

    Those shoes are fabulous! I love this dress. It’s so chic! …We’ve still got 100 degree temps. here in Texas. I don’t think I’ll be wearing fall layers for months. Sadly.

    Adorable dress! I am a big fan of B&W. I hate when I buy cute shoes that never get comfy.

    Love that leather details around the armholes too. It looks classic and comfortable at the same time.

    Oh no! I hate when shoes hurt your feet or when the ties come undone, it’s so annoying. You look super cute no matter what!
