I wear the color black all-year-round, especially during fall and winter seasons. This weekend outfit was no exception. Since I knew I was going to attend a fashion show on the deck of a cruise ship, I opted to wear a maxi skirt over a maxi dress for extra warmth. I wore my go-to faux leather biker jacket and studded crossbody bag for an edgier look.

Frances’ styling tips:

  • For an illusion of separate pieces in a look, wear a top (i.e., a tee or sweater), or a skirt over your dress. The skirt should be the same length, or longer, as the dress.
  • Add texture to your outfit for more dimension, especially if your entire outfit is in the same color. For instance, a texture skirt over a basic dress, like I did in this all black look.

I’m certainly missing the summer weather. Can we go back to the sleeveless dresses, shorts, swimsuits, & sandals? I need more sunshine in my life to get me through these chilly fall days! In the meantime, I’ll reminisce the last bit of summer with these lovely photos taken by my dear friend Diana. It’s pretty obvious that I’m not comfortable posing in public with a photographer. Hopefully, it will become second nature to me as this blog progresses. Till next time, Happy Tuesday!
