Aztec Dress in Autumn

This little aztec dress has been worn so very very much over the last couple of months, i actually had to stop and think back as to whether i had posted here on the blog. Turns out i hadn't, which surprised me with the amount i've been wearing it. I guess it's because it's so easy to just throw on. I am all about the convenience , as you well know. Life is busy! Puppy, children, work, blog, Yosa and yep life is hectic. So nice and easy outfits will always be favoured by me.
We have had a freakishly mild Sept-Oct and i often wore this little dress with just socks and boots and a light cardigan, now it's getting cold finally (yay) i am really enjoying it with scarves, tights and jackets. no doubt come summer i will also love it with some great tan sandals too.
I do love when i find little gems that can work for you all year round! It doesn't happen often for me, i have some sort of season-dressing-ocd where things can only be worn in the appropriate season (which fyi- i'm trying to overcome, because white jeans in winter look awesome... and yet i can't bring myself to do it, god damn it!), but yes this dress i will have no problem with in any given month!
Do you have any articles that work well for you all year round? 
Is there anyone out there like me with season dressing ocd?







Aztec Dress: New Look
Boots: Duo
Jacket: New Look (last Year)

Below i've included some of the exact items or some of my favourite alternatives(completely swooning over the faux fur collar River Island jacket...oh my furry goodness!!)
I've also included makeup that i'm wearing wherever possible :)

  6. Rachel, that dress has so much that 60's vibe it exudes joy and such a flirty factor, love it. The yellow scarf is the perfect finish touch. Such a great ensemble for fall :-)

  11. Absolutely gorgeous, and those tights are the perfect shade to match the dress - doesn't your hair almost have a bluey/black tinge too? Perfection. Made me think about getting out an Aztec print dress I have too.

  15. This is so pretty with the colored tights. I can pretty much wear most of my clothes year round since the temps are pretty consistent here.

  18. Year round clothes are my favorite too! This dress is so super cute. I love all the fun colors in the print which make it super remixable. It looks fantastic with these blue tights and your yellow scarf.
