Tired of seeing so many blue pieces yet? I feel like EVERYTHING that has caught my eye all summer has been blue and I would like to say that will calm down with an introduction of fall hues I'm not quite done with my blue obsession yet. As a color that looks great during every season especially due to a variation of shades it won't take long for my closet to accidentally coordinate with my room.
I found this dress this summer when I was in D.C. visiting my brother and absolutely fell in love with the style of the dress and well as Club Monaco where I found it. It was on sale plus an additional 30% off making it a great addition to my wardrobe especially since it is perfectly acceptable for student teaching. I've always been a fan of anything with ruffles and peplum silhouettes also instantly draw me in. The peplum hem on this dress makes it a bit more appealing and the quarter sleeves make it perfect for late summer and early fall in South Carolina. With a cinched tie waist, buttons on the top, and a loose light weight fabric I was just as happy with this on in the dressing room as I was wearing it all day in my fourth grade classroom.
My Madewell tote has become my designated teacher tote and with its sleek design and durable exterior there is no question as to why. Cognac is like blue to me as it is perfect for all seasons however, I'll be sad to put these fun cognac espadrilles away as the weather begins to change.
Shockingly, this dress is still available online and is currently on sale! Not only is this on sale but all of Club Monaco's sale pieces are on an additional sale making this dress heavily discounted! I would highly recommend that you take the time to explore Club Monaco's sale selections online because this sale makes their high quality, timeless pieces much more affordable! If you happen to live near one of their stores I am jealous since the interior of their store is just as pretty as the clothes they offer.
