Wear it Now & Later: Striped Knit Dress

Good Morning all! 
Like a lot of you guys out there, I am over summer. All it took was one glimpse of new fall boots to send me over the edge. I find myself daydreaming about yummy leather boots tucked into my dark skinnies and my other new fall obsession: the furry vest. Must. Have. I can picture it winterizing a lot of my flowy summer dresses, or warming up a basic jeans, t-shirt, flats ensemble. But, unfortunately, the heat in Texas can last well into October, so I have a ways to go before I can bust out my cold weather gear. In the meantime, I figure I can find ways to wear pieces for both seasons. Enter this adorable striped knit dress from Alloy. Its the perfect comfy staple for any season. I'll be pairing it with nude accessories for summer errands and cookouts (including the gorgeous Miu Miu replica platforms from Steve Madden, a cool snake cuff, and a gorgeous tan cross body bag.) For winter, I'll style it as a tunic with with dark skinnies tucked into Steve Madden's cult fave Intyce boots (want these so bad), the must-have fur vest, an adorable sparkly owl ring, and my newest bag craving, the Marc Jacobs Hillier Hobo in black. Hurry up fall!!!
