What’s Black & White and Red All Over?

I have an addiction to stripes. Yes, stripes. I love them on clothes, in home decor, you name it. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that anything striped is probably my favorite thing to wear during the cooler months.

I found this T-shirt shift dress at Target on clearance during the summer, and I immediately bought it and tucked it away for a cool, sunny fall day. This dress is to-the-max comfortable and paired with a bright red scarf and opaque black tights, I’m able to keep warm even when there is a crisp chill in the air.

Dress: Target
Scarf: Apt. 9, Kohl’s (exact)
Flats: Target (exact)
Purse: Christian Siriano for Payless  (crossbody version // similar)

I need to give a huge shout out to Mia who recently mentioned this purse on her blog; I got to Payless as soon as I could this weekend and was thrilled to see that they still had some left. It’s the perfect bag for fall, and it only added fuel to my already-strong leopard print obsession. 
  • Love this outfit!! I'm also a lover of stripes. The tights and scarf are perfect for fall.

  • Pamela

    Eek! I love stripes too! This is so cute! Definitely the perfect fall outfit. And that bag… gorgeous! So jealous of you and Mia!

    <3, Pamela

  • This is the cutest outfit! I have the same dress in olive green and have never thought to pair it with tights to wear when it's cooler… love that idea!

  • Debra Stachelski

    Cute, cute, cute! I haven't shopped at Payless in a while, I'll have to go check them out!

  • I would have never guessed that bag was from Payless– what a great find! And yay tights! I love how they look (though I hate how they feel).

  • Biana Perez

    That scarf adds the perfect pop of color to this outfit!! I love the dress – great look girl!!

    YAY!! You are ROCKING that bag girl, so glad they had it 🙂 It's going to be the perfect fall bag. That last pic of you is too cute!

  • I love how you dressed the shift up for fall with some dark tights, flats and a leopard bag! Very cute!


  • Love it, it looks so cute on you! Boots and a cardigan would also be cute with that dress. I love telling customers at work how they can transition a piece from summer into fall. Or even for winter. It just makes buying something more worth it. I hope that you are having a great day so far too! 🙂

  • Can't beat a tee shirt dress, so versatile! Love how you styled it, bet it will transition nicely from season to season. Love those Target flats, so cute!

  • Thanks, girl!

  • Mia definitely did me a favor when she shared the news about that bag – I absolutely adore it.

  • Thanks, girl! I bet the olive green version is so cute – and perfect for fall!

  • They had some pretty good accessories, I have to admit!

  • Haha, I never used to like tights either until a few years ago. Now, I prefer wearing them with a skirt or dress any day instead of pants! That bag was a great find by Mia.

  • Thanks, lady!

  • Thanks, girl! I'm all about reusing clothes from season to season.

  • I can't thank you enough for sharing that bag on your blog – I'm in love with it! It's the perfect size and just great for the fall/winter months. And, thank you! I couldn't resist playing with the leaves. 🙂

  • Thank you!

  • Absolutely – I'm all about transitioning clothes from season to season to get more wear out of them. I'll have to pair this with a cardigan next time, and as soon as I find a pair of ankle boots that I like, you can bet that I will rock them with this dress.

  • Thanks, lady! Those flats are ridiculously comfortable – I'm considering getting a backup pair this year since I wear them so much!

  • These photos are so adorable! I love that dress, tshirt shift dresses have become some of my favourite pieces, they are so easy to wear and can be styled so many different ways!

  • Becky M

    Such a great clearance find!! And you styled it great for fall – love the tights!


  • Awe, thanks girl! Ryan is becoming quite the photographer. 🙂 I agree with you about shift dresses – they are universally flattering on anybody and can be styled a multitude of ways regardless of the season!

  • Thanks, lady!

  • Dang, I wish that dress was still available to buy! I want it in my closet!

  • You seriously picked all my favorite things in my wardrobe! Stripes, red accents and leopard! Love this outfit!

  • Michaela

    This outfit is SO cute! Love the photos!

    Love this look. The stripes with the red are perfection. Also, that cheetah bag. Yes please. Great fall outfit!
