It's officially October which means it's time leave behind those summer pieces for new fall ensembles.
It's been years since I've been "back to school," but there's something about the change in season and the need for new duds that has been burned in the brain.
The above look has me longing for a new dress, a new clutch and a cozy dinner date at Rumours East here in Nashville.
The fun print keeps the long sleeve dress from looking dowdy. Cinched at the waist with a structured gold belt, I love this frock with bare legs and saucy suede booties. Paired with a clutch and ton of fun, gold accessories, this date night getup can go from early fall to the dead of winter with black tights and a leather jacket.
