This dress just screams Carly! Or Samantha Parkington. Or Rory Gilmore. Or maybe even Blair Waldorf. I can’t decide, but I know that it’s amazing.
I wore this last week and met up with Carter in the morning to shoot it. (Actually met/saw a bunch of readers commuting to work… Hi!) We had one of those rare New York City days where you could comfortably have bare legs but still wanted a coat because of the chill in the air.
I just love how quintessentially fall this dress is. The herringbone plaid couldn’t be better. It’s great by itself, but I love how the trench coat looks layered with it too. (It would work great with a wool overcoat too.)
The dress also zips up the back so the buttons in the front aren’t actually functional. Personally, I love that because you get a great fit without having to worry about gaping.
These loafers are from last year. The exact pair is unfortunately sold out. You could always splurge on a pair of Guccis (I’ve been tempted, ha) but there’s also a Sam Edelman pair that looks comfortable and cute for a much more affordable price.
