By The Water

- Outfits

So this dress… I am in love… it is silky, comfy and simply makes me feel chic! I have worn a couple other pieces from Heiress, seen here and here, and like those pieces this dress is no exception.  It is unique and can be easily dressed up or dressed down (as seen here) and I think it will be a great maxi to transition into fall, either with a blazer and boots or worn as a skirt with a sweater on top. These photos were taken in one of my favorite places near the Twin Cities: Stillwater! It is gorgeous during the summer, fall, winter and spring and has tons of cute boutique,  antique and candy stores. These photos were actually taken over a week ago on the last (I almost said nice, but I love fall weather so I’ll say…) warm day where I could still go with sandals and no jacket.  What do you think of the dress? It is still available at Heiress, and their new collection is out, including lots of beautiful colors as well as color blocking, unique details and cut outs!

    You’re right…when the weather gets cooler, I think this dress will totally work. You could pair it with a cropped leather jacket and it would be perfect!!
