LBPD: Little Black Polkadot Dress

We've all heard that saying "everyone needs a little black dress in their closet" right? Well, the next dress everyone needs is a little black polkadot dress (specifically this dress!) In the past when it came to little black dresses, I always made sure they were plain. No color, no crazy detailing, just a simple black dress. But then I realized that is 100% bor-ing and no little black dress should be boring! It should be the dress that you pull out of your closet when you want to feel feminine and confident! And that's exactly where this dress comes in... it's not color and prints are not only classic, it's shift shape is perfect for any occasion. I belted the dress this time around to give it a more shape. Oh and don't get me started on the shoes.....! They are a combination of a classic and glam and I love them! This whole outfit made me feel totally chic, which is appropriate as we celebrate Piperlime's  fall #momentsofchic campaign! How do you create your #momentsofchic?

fall essentials

As I've said many, many times, fall is my absolute favorite season. When the temperatures start cooling down and the leaves begin changing, I know fall has officially arrived and my fall essentials will be making appearances more often! 


In the fall I tend to gravitate more towards basic pieces, such as knit sweaters, denim, and button downs. Often times that leaves the outfit lacking a little something...so that's when I wear a pair of statement earrings to bring a little life to the outfit. 

I kind of have a thing for handbags (especially this one from GiGi New York). Having a classic handbag in a neutral color that can go with all of your fall outfits is essential. 

The blanket scarf has totally taken off and has already become one of the biggest style accessories this fall! Last year Zara had the best blanket scarfs (but I missed out on them). Luckily they came out with even more this year and everyone followed suit. Even Target has blanket scarves now! I'm excited for the cooler weather to break out mine.

Booties are my absolute go-to shoe in the fall. They go with everything from dresses to denim. I have had my eye on these Sam Edelman booties for the longest time (not kidding) and I'm thinking I may need to make the purchase, especially since I wear booties so often.

Sneakers are one of those trends that I never thought would be a "trend," but it's totally taken the fashion world by storm. I see celebs on Instagram and in magazines wearing sneakers all the time to make a normal outfit a little more sporty chic! I think these are so so so cute. Personally, I love the trend...and so do my feet! It's a nice break from heels.

When I think of fall I instantly think of plaid. Something about the pattern is just so "fall" to me! Not only do I love the pattern on shirts, but it totally works on dresses, pants, and even shoes. In my mind,  you can't go wrong in plaid.

Cozy knits are also one of my go-to pieces in the cooler fall months. When I am cold I want to be warm and comfortable, don't we all? Chunky knits are not only on-trend they are weather appropriate and cute! 

What are your fall essentials?
