I love houndstooth. It’s such a classic pattern I doubt it will ever go out of style.
I thought I’d style my new dress a couple of different ways so see if I could make my dress look fresh. First, I wore bright blue shoes and a black cardigan.
Faux Suede Shoes: Payless
Vegan Purse: Crystalyn Kae
Then, I tried the opposite: A blue cardi and black shoes, er, boots.
Pleather and Neoprene Boots: DSW
The boots help take my dress into fall. Next up: Tights and a jacket. I think I could even wear a turtleneck under this dress and mix up the look even more.
I’m joining Visible Monday for a link-up today. See what all the others are wearing!

I agree, houndstooth is forever – and you look wonderful! Love the shrug. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday, xox.
Thank you, Patti! I love a classic pattern that outlives the trends.
Houndstooth is classic. This is a great shape of dress and I love the cobalt with it, I think it looks great both ways !

please stop by, jess xx
Thank you. I often gravitate to red as an accent for a B&W outfit but I like the blue as well.
Great mixing! I’m all about mixing and matching.
Thank you. I love mixing and matching as well. It stretches my fashion dollar!
Perfect either way … I’m loving it with those really excellent black boots especially. So pretty, you in that great dress. I’ll bet you think of a lot more ways to wear it!
Thank you! I’m working on a few ways to wear it. I’m thinking of putting a sweater over it so it looks like a skirt!
LOve those boots…I want some…they would look great under my trousers to work
I thought you might like them! They’re super comfy, even though they’re snug. The Neoprene is stretchy. Boots that fit like a glove–lol!
LOVE the short hair look. Houndstooth is such a classic, as for which I like better it’s a toss up. Both are amazing.
Thanks David! How kind of you. My hair has gotten shorter lately (bit by bit), but I still have some TBT posts to share. Glad you like the shorter look. It’s growing on me 😉
I do love houndstooth – such a great pattern with a little mod vibe.
P.S. Hope you will stop by Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.
You’re right–it is a little mod 🙂 Thanks for stopping by. I’m working on my TBT post for your link-up.
