It's easy to default to tights under dresses all fall, but sometimes it's warm enough (or you're just brave enough) to let the thigh feel the chill and let tall boots go unaccompanied on the leg with a dress. Long sleeved minis are one of my favorite things (in the same arena as shorts with sweaters), and this girl wears the combo well. The big belt defines her waist and adds some interest to the plain black dress, and it's the perfect brown to go with black. The brown boots match the belt perfectl, and because they're accessories and they're simple, it doesn't look matchy matchy. This is a great day look, but with a clutch like above, it's also great for evening drinks or dinner, as well as all those family fun times coming up. I know who I'll be copying in the next few weeks.
