The first three items of my fix were distinctly casual and I was excited to try on the dresses that my stylist had sent as well! I had requested a few dresses to enhance my fall wardrobe and Layla provided two different pieces that could easily be dressed up or down.

Kadence Cowl Drape Front Dress
The next item I tried on was a navy Kadence Cowl Drape Front Dress from Gilli ($64). This was a great staple piece for anyone's wardrobe. I loved that it came all the way down to my knee. My first instinct was to wear the dress as a special occassion garment. I added my wedding earrings with the bangle I also wore for the wedding and a pair of black pumps. The result was classy and understated.
This dress also felt like it had potential to easily dress down so I pulled a few layering items from my closet and tried out some more casual looks.
First I added a peach belt, a cropped denim jacket, my white ceramic Fossil watch (similar here) and a pair of Ballerina Pink Tieks. I posted a detailed review of Tieks if you are thinking about getting your own pair.
I loved this outfit, but it suddenly felt like it might be a touch too casual for school. I traded the denim jacket and for a peach cardigan. I also went wore my Lovestruck Tieks, which are a little more dressy than the Ballerina Pink style. The result was perfect!
Darrah Printed Faux Wrap Dress
The fifth and final item included in my fix was a burgundy Darrah Printed Faux Wrap Dress from Leota ($138). Some women love wrap dresses and look fabulous in them. I am not one of those women. In fact, I even have a request in my style profile that kindly requests that my stylist not send wrap dresses or anything else with a v-neck. Sometimes, things come in your fix that you just don't like.
And sometimes you turn lemons into lemonade.
I was determined to look past the fact that this dress was outside of my comfort zone. I had requested that Layla send more dresses that I could wear in the cool months and I'm certain that she was just trying to honor my request. So I took a long, hard look at that wrap dress and tried to make it more my style. For starters, I added a black tami tank and a black statement necklace. I love wearing dresses with tights and riding boots when the weather is cold, so I ditched the heels and winter gear for my legs. I also added a skinny black belt and completed the look with my Kaylie Solid French Terry Blazer from Tart. The result was EXACTLY my style.
The wrap dress is a few inches too long to wear with my riding boots, so I used a few safety pins to hike the dress up at the waist. I am definitely keeping this dress and I plan to have it altered sometime this month so it will be short enough for my boots and ready to wear when the cold weather arrives. I also think this will be an awesome outfit to wear during the holiday season.
Here are quick links to a few accessories I wore while trying on my fix:
