kate spade collared dress

If this isn’t the cutest little dress ever, I don’t know what is.  When I was packing for Mississippi, I knew I had to throw in some ladylike pieces. You know how it is when you go home – you’re around town, haven’t seen all the familiar faces in a while and you don’t want to be schlepping around in sweatpants.

Plus, if you have a Southern momma, she appreciates it when you “get dolled up.” More of some epic Southern phrases in this post – y’all blew me away!

I found this little number at Nordstrom (currently 40% off), you can always count on Kate Spade for the cutest and must intricate designs! This was my first time styling a pussycat bow and it really is such a flattering style on everyone. I am linking two more styles I love below!  I think this dress would be perfect for a holiday party! You could also wear it with tights or OTK boots. In the spring you could wear it sleeveless!

In other news, please note that we literally took these photos while it was sprinkling on us and would intermittently run to the car when the drops got heavier. It was about 70 degrees and humid, but these leaves were too gorgeous so I stayed motivated. All the fall leaves in the South right now really have me missing home… I don’t even listen to country music and I made a Dixie Chicks playlist on Spotify. God bless!

  1. Such a cute dress for the holidays and I love that the collar is detachable. Last year I had about ten holiday parties to go to, so I bought a bunch of dresses because of photos and overlapping of other attendees. But this year I have two holiday parties to go to, thank goodness and I promised myself I would’t buy any new dresses but this one is tempting me because it’s like two or three dresses in one!

  2. Such a cute dress. I don’t really know how well I pull off feminine looks, much as I wish I could – I definitely lean more heavily on “masculine” style (I don’t even know if that’s the right way to describe it, but I usually try to make a masculine look more feminine, if that makes sense?!) That being said — I LOVE this look. Super cute and chic.

    Have you ever considered sharing your Spotify info? You always share such fun music on your instagram stories. Plus I’m super nosy and love knowing what other people are listening to 🙂

  3. What a unique look! I admire your creativity and boldness when it comes to playing around with styles. I don’t know if i’ll ever be open to the big bowtie, but you rock it! You look stunning.


  4. I can’t get over how incredible you look in that dress!!! And can we talk about the styling? Because I would never in a million years think to layer it over a mesh bodysuit but girl you went there and it paid off!

    And 100% understand the feeling of having to dress up when you go home. I swear every time I’m home I think I’ll just make an innocent trip to the grocery store in my sweats and run into 500 people I know (and my town is only !0,000) lolz.
