I’ve lived in New Orleans for 5 years now, and around this time each year the cravings for Fall weather start to set in. Despite the one blissful week of gorgeous sunshine and cool breezes we received as lagniappe from hurricane season, the Summer has been endlessly hot! Am I alone or does anyone else feel that if they start wearing sweaters and leather jackets now that a cool break in temperature will ensue… just me? Oh ok – haha.
Little shorts, skirts and dresses are feeling monotonous and my outfits are lacking layers. I love this oversized sweater dress by Free People so much that I wanted to show you guys. Although there are a million ways you can style it, I thought it would be interesting to play up some Western vibes by wearing a hat and eclectic cowboy boots by BCBGeneration. I have to admit, I only wore it for the photo, then it came right off. I’ll definitely be wearing this piece from Free People’s collection more this Fall if New Orleans isn’t lacking the cooler weather.
