Houndstooth and Taupe.

A Simple, almost Colorless Outfit featuring my Houndstooth Shirt-dress, Taupe Cardigan and Taupe OTK Boots (folded down) paired with some Monochrome Gray Tights. All I did was add a Hunter Green Statement Necklace. I wore this outfit to work one day but it is casual enough to do several mom duties in or run errands about town, or even to be worn on a weekend. What do you think? Do you own a Simple, B+W Patterned Shirt-dress?

Gold Chain, Statement Necklace w/ Forest Green, Teardrop Stones: Francesca's Collection (similar, best deal, love this), (gorgeous option by Kendra Scott, on sale, love this).
Taupe-Charcoal, Over-the-Knee Boots: Purchased in Tirana (very similar by Nine West, on sale, love these), (similar, best deal), (similar in Cognac, love these).


  1. Fun outfit! I love the neutral colors and the houndstooth gives it such great detail!

  2. Love this! Taupe is one of my favorite neutrals.

  3. I like how you've tied the belt for the dress on top of the cardigan, cute touch! :)

    I don't have any shirt dresses although I love the style, they just aren't very flattering on me. I like tunic dresses though, so easy to wear :)

  4. I really like how this looks with the cardigan buttoned up over the shirt dress, and tan + black is a neutral favorite of mine!

  5. You are looking fabulous in houndstooth Ada!! Hope you're having a great weekend!

  6. What a fun houndstooth number! I love the cute belt too!

  7. The houndstooth and taupe look SO good together! I love how you belted it on the outside with the dress belt, too!

  8. I think the layering and mix of neutrals work really well here. Love the boots too!

  9. I love a bit of houndstooth! I can't wear taupe though, those beigey colours don't look right on me, but with your fab dark colouring this looks great on you x

  10. Love the houndstooth and taupe layers! The belt looks great on the outside of the sweater!
