Being your own boss + give me all the pleats

Shop this look

(Give me all the pleats, please — especial today’s mustard yellow pleated dress!)

Happy Monday friends… oops I mean Tuesday.  Isn’t that the best part of having Monday off?  It can make your work week seem so very short and sweet.  Our weekend involved going to a beer garden (I had wine, ha!), catching up on sleeping (wearing these pjs), and doing some blog-work catch up.  That’s the hard part about being your own boss… no days off!

That’s probably why having a date night for us is so important.  It’s when we both actually step away from our work and get to reconnect.  For our next date night, I plan on wearing this happy little pleated dress.  The color makes me think of fall leaves and has me ready for pumpkin spice season.  (But not in my coffee… sorry.  No can do!)  And it will be so cute when paired with a leather jacket this fall.

What item(s) are you excited to wear this fall?  For me it’s all my leather jackets.  I kind of collect them!  Mainly, because they are so easy to wear.  You just put a tee on underneath, throw on the jacket, and you’re out the door looking put together.  I guess it’s the same reason I love dresses.  I want fashion to make my life easier!  Especially on a Monday… I mean, Tuesday!

So how would you style this mustard yellow pleated dress?  Let me know in comments, and by the way I should mention that the tie is adjustable!  So you can make the neckline hang lower or higher depending on how you like it.  And I would suggest putting your hair up or to the side.  The back was made to be shown off!   Ugh, I just love a good tassel…
