It took me about 30 seconds to add this Alice + Olivia dress to my cart on Shopbop. Browsing the new arrivals at Shopbop has become a new (and dangerous) hobby of mine, but I like to think it paid off this time.

I look at a lot of clothes, and after awhile everything starts to look alike. To me, this colorful striped dress broke the mold, and I’m all for splurging on items that don’t look like anything I’ve seen before. Another justification when I go the splurge route is versatility. If I can think of multiple ways I can wear something, the odds of me buying it go way up. With this Alice + Olivia dress I thought of four different outfits instantly, which is nice because my fall and winter dress selection is kind of lacking.

I didn’t get any good close-up shots of these Kenneth Jay Lane earrings, but they were a recent “just because” gift from Joe and I love them! I haven’t gotten any new jewelry in awhile, and these are a nice new addition. For as much jewelry as I own, I really don’t have anything too colorful. These are fun, and the perfect complement to this statement-making dress.

Has anyone else been struggling during this first full week of fall? Not only has my energy level gone way down for some reason, but I’m already cold at all times. The temperature has only dropped like 10-15 degrees, but the heat in my car has been on full blast every day. Even more sad is the fact that my space heater has also been blasted on high when I’ve been at the office. I’m in for a long six months!
