Burgundy T-Shirt Dress


I know what you're thinking… I went straight past the transitional wardrobe phase and landed right on falling for fall. I really couldn't help it-- it's this dress! I snagged it at Forever 21 last week and have been just itching to wear it. The colour is a deep burgundy, the material is soft jersey and overall the dress is quite thick, which is not only perfect for chilly fall evenings, but it also hugs in all the right places (and smooths over any fine lines). Tying a chambray top around the waist always makes me more comfortable when I wear body hugging pieces; it acts as a buffer piece and keeps the outfit from feeling too fancy. This dress does feel like something you would find at Aritzia, and for a half the price I'm actually considering scooping it up in a different colour. Although it may still be hot in the city I figured if I was going to sport my first "fall" outfit then I was going to go all out, so the hat, booties and chambray top came along for the ride. I am by no means giving up on these last few weeks of summer, but adding a touch of moody romance to my wardrobe was a nice chance, and it's certainly helping me welcome the impending seasonal shift.

Are you holding on to summer or have you started to embrace autumn?
