This past weekend my mom came to visit for the weekend. With a day of brunch, museum-hopping, shopping and dinner planned on Saturday, I wanted an outfit that was comfortable for walking around the city, warm enough for the fall temps and also stylish to go from shopping to dinner. I was excited to break out this Ann Taylor dress I had picked up a few weeks ago and I knew my Sam Edelman boots were the perfect comfy shoe to pair with it. Not pictured: the jacket I needed for the pretty chilly weather this weekend (please don’t tell me winter is coming…)
Neutral colored dresses are a staple in my closet. Whether it’s a LBD or a gray number like the one in today’s post, I love a good neutral dress! Here’s why: First, dresses are the easiest item in your closet when you are getting ready in a rush, but want to look put together- throw one on and you are done! Second, the neutral background means your accessory options are endless- stay semi-monochromatic like I did here or add pops of color for a bright contrast. It’s one of the reasons I can’t resist when I find a great, neutral dress- you can never have too many!

Thanks girl! Though I’m loving the basic #plaidblanketscarf, I’m happy to have this one too that’s a bit different!
I need more neutral dresses in my life. That close up is such a great photo of you.
Thanks Kristen 🙂 My mom took these photos and I think she did an awesome job!
LOVE. I lived by a gray sweater dress of mine for about 6 years, and just retired it… now in need of a replacement and might just have to go try this beauty on! It’s unreal how versatile a gray dress can be, so underrated when everyone just thinks about the LBD 🙂
Emily, I think you’d love this dress! It also comes in black and a wine color which would both be pretty. Have a great weekend girl 🙂
