Fall Layers

West Village, NY

I cleaned out my closet the other week and realized I barely have any fall/winter dresses. As much as I love pants, it’s nice to wear a dress or skirt every once in a while!  This sweater dress from one of my favorite brands Cuyana (I always wear their leather tote) is perfect as the temperatures start to dip.  It’s hand knit with baby alpaca yarn so it’s ridiculously soft and warm.  I can’t wait to wear it with brown riding boots in November and tights + over the knee boots in December.  For now I’ll be wearing it with vests like this or a light infinity scarf.

Cuyana dress c/o  |  Velvet & Graham vest (also love this one)
Ralph Lauren belt  |  J.Crew cuff (similar)  |  Chloe bag
J. Lindeberg hat (also love this one)  |  Schutz heels (similar)
Special thanks to Cuyana for sponsoring this post.

    The olive vest breaks up the dark color nicely and gives the outfit a more casual feel. The added gold accents are perfect! You look fabulous in this casually elegant ensemble.

    Flawless! I love the color combo of the black, military green and the leopard. I barely have any fall/winter dresses either and I love the simplicity of this dress, but the fabric sounds so luxurious. Love how you paired it with that vest and amazing shoes and hat. This is so so so gorgeous! I mean, can you do no wrong?!
