Unfortunately in the northeast, mornings have been pretty chilly the last few days. Taking the morning commute gets harder when you need to figure out how to wear layers that can get you through a cold morning, chilly office, and 80 degree weather in the afternoon if you happen to step outside.
While this dress may be a bit warm for the 80 degree afternoons, the colder weather has me thinking about the fall and this outfit is perfect for those first days. Maroon is always a great color for autumn, I'm pretty sure I have 2-3 lip colors in this family alone. A plaid shirt is great for cooler mornings, but adds a sporty look to the dress as the day gets warmer. Sneakers and a faux leather backpack make for the perfect finishing touches to this sporty look.
