Tis the Season for Plaid

Yesterday Will and I celebrated out one year anniversary by hiking and exploring the surrounding towns. It was so much fun, even if we did end up returning home on a backroad that was hellbent on being the most twisty and turny road ever. My poor stomach hehe. When we got home enjoyed homemade pizza and a movie. It was nothing fancy, but it was perfectly us. Thank you for all your sweet comments on yesterday's post. Now onto this dress! 
When the lovely people over at eshakti sent me over this dress I fell head over heals in love! It is seriously the perfect fall dress, and as you can see it has pockets!! I feel like that is one of the first things I tell people when I have a dress with pockets. I mean pockets in dresses are flipping amazing so why wouldn't that be the first thing you tell people. I actually had pockets sewn into my wedding dress, that's how much I love them!

I digress, back to this lovely dress. If you haven't ever heard of eshakti you should head on over and check them out. They have so many wonderful pieces, and the best part is you can customize a dress to your measurements! I cannot tell you how many times I have ordered something online only to have it fit weird over my boobs. It's probably one of the worst feelings ever, especially because you usually have to pay to ship it back and return it, ugh. But with eshakti you get a custom sized dress that will fit you like a glove! And for a limited time you can save $25 on your first order, wooo!
I bought these shoes for my wedding last year for two reasons, one: they are super cute, and two: I wanted to make myself taller haha. And while they totally made me taller (there was no tip toe action to kiss my sir during the wedding), they are by no means useful on the mountain haha. So unless we are having a fancy date night out in Winchester they usually sit around until we head out to Phoenix where pretty much all the roads are paved. Regardless I just had to wear them with this dress because I think they are just perfect together, and they make my legs look pretty great too haha!

Things have been nice on the mountain, the leaves are changing colors and falling, and there is a cool crisp feeling in the air. Well there was a crisp feeling in the air, but all of sudden the last couple of days have been crazy warm in the mid 80s. Seems like the weather cannot decide if it wants to really move into fall or hang onto summer haha. Is the weather being as fickle where you are?

x's and o's


  1. I love that dress! It's looks fantastic on you :)

  2. Oh my gosh, that dress is adorable! It looks great on you :)

  3. Wow, your figure in that dress is STUNNING. Love the autumn colours

  4. You look flipping amazing! Love this dress. And I know what you mean. Sometimes I'll get dresses at stores trying them on first. Wear them and after like an hour they somehow fit funny. That is infuriating. Happy anniversary.

  5. Congratulations on your anniversary.

    I love this dress and it looks so good on you, I really like the fancy cut with the plaid


  6. Happy belated anniversary! I'm completely, 100% in love with this outfit. The colors are perfect, this fit is amazing, I love the plaid, and can't believe those shoes. So good!

  8. I sew pockets into my dresses that don't come with them, haha! The weather here has been your perfectly average autumn. It was hot, hot and humid, humid, cool and humid, and now it's cool and everything is turning those lovely shades of fall. I love it!


  9. I LOVE when dresses have pockets too--I feel completely lost without them. And this dress is beautiful--so slimming.

  13. wow!! I love this whole outfit! I really wanted a plaid dress this fall, specifically madewell but the bust measurement on the xl is just too close for comfort for me to splurge and buy it! I gotta do some chest presses or something! haha I ended up making my own but I must check out this eshakti!
