One day it's 80 degrees in DC, the next it's 40. I thought I'd be packing away the tights and tall boots, but with this weather I figure I can eek out a few more wearings! I bought this dress during one of Ann Taylor's 30% off sale deals several weeks ago, ended up being under $35 (note it's cheaper in store than online). It's cute but short with the self belt, but I like it for say a date night with my DKNY super opaque tights, or even with leggings. For work, I took off the belt for a looser silhouette and longer hemline.

  1. This is gorgeous! I really like the silhouette of the dress unbelted and the high boots and bright lip are perfect with this! πŸ™‚

  2. YOUR HAIR! I’m in love, Allie. You look stunning in these pictures. That outfit? Perfect. I love when you wear all neutrals like this with a POP of color in your lipstick. And your sassy little smirk? Love it.


  3. Love this whole look. The lips, the hair, the dress it all just works. You look ready for date night in this outfit!

  4. Very nice look. I like the black and white with the pop of color on the lips. I think you look great! I have to ask, is the Ann Taylor dress a petite version or the regular? I’m a little bit shorter than you (5’1″) and think it might be a perfect (and rare) length for me.

  7. Fabulous! Love the whole look. The cool coif, the pop of lip colour, the graphic print. Loose waves really suit you.

  8. I especially like your hair today too.

    This is totally off topic for the day but I have to ask. What do you think about black bridesmaids dresses? Sophisticated or too Adams Family?


    1. As someone who was a Matron of Honor in a wedding where I was to wear black, I LOVE it! Makes it so easy if you’re allowed to wear different dresses and more likely to re-wear the dress. Also with flowers and decor it can look quite elegant and not too dreary or dark. The wedding where I wore black, the flowers were white and light green, the ceremony was outside and it was quite a feminine and summery affair πŸ™‚

      1. Allie,

        I remember the black dress for Matron of Honor and I thought that was wonderful. I can also see guests wearing black dresses. But I hadn’t heard about bridesmaids wearing black. Thanks for your thoughts.

        One thing I do like about black bridesmaid dresses is that the choice of color accents, flowers, etc. is fairly wide open!


  9. I love the orange lips, it’s a great lipstick on you. Also your hair looks great. Mine is stick straight but I love your loose waves.
