How I Style It: Dresses for Fall [LuLaRoe Carly Dress]

This post contains affiliate links.

Each month, I team up with some of my blogging buddies for the How I Style It post–we all take one style idea and each put together an outfit based on it.  This month, the How I Style It girls have teamed up to show you how we’re styling dresses/skirts this fall.  

Dress: c/o Claire Marie LuLaRoe // Scarf: Old Navy // Purse: Tory Burch Outlet (similar) // Ankle Boots: Target// Necklace + Earrings: Kendra Scott via Rocksbox–get 1 month FREE w/ code BRIGHTONABUDGETXOXO 

Y’all, the blanket scarf collection keeps growing.  I love blanket scarves because they’re so soft, warm, and cozy.  Blanket scarves are also the perfect accessory to take your short-sleeved dress straight into fall!  I recently received this LuLaRoe Carly dress from a giveaway at Claire Marie LuLaRoe (be sure to join her group–lots of giveaways!). I had been wanting to try out the Carly dresses for a while, but they’re short-sleeved. No fears–you can warm things up by draping this blanket scarf around your neck, then transition it to a poncho when things get even more cool.
This buffalo plaid oversized scarf is so cute against the draw of my LuLaRoe Carly dress!

The Carly dress itself wears much like other LuLaRoe pieces.  Think of this pieces as a long Irma–the back dips down lower than the front and the fit is oversized/swingy. You can size down 2 sizes in this dress. Since this dress is more casual, I upped the dressiness by added black ankle boots.  The ankle boots combined with my scarf completely transform the looks of this dress.

And let me just say how much I’m in love with my latest Rocksbox! I got both the Kendra Scott Belinda Studs in Gold and Navy Crackle Illusion and the Kendra Scott Rayne Necklace in Gunmetal and Black.  If I decided to keep either of them, I can purchase at 15% off retail!
