whimsical western // a trend I’m loving

DRESS ruffled paisley dress (wearing XS, size down one) | BOOTS tall heeled boots | JACKET denim jacket | BAG crossbody saddle bag | BELT cognac belt (similar linked)

While I absolutely love dressing more towards my “preppy” inclinations during autumn, there is one trend popping up this season that I’m having just as much fun with. “Whimsical Western” is what I like to call this vibe, where you’ll find paisleys instead of plaids, plenty of denim, and boots in abundance.

Speaking of, I found the most gorgeous paisley dress earlier this week. Let me just say, it is allowing me to live out this fun trend to the fullest! Today, I’m excited to be partnering with Walmart to share a few adorable and affordable pieces that fit right into this western look.

This dress would easily look adorable paired with everything from white platform sneakers to heels, depending on how fancy you want to take it. I had fun, however, wearing it over a pair of tall heeled boots for that western vibe. These boots are amazing… they look gorgeous on and the price is fab!

The loose, flowy fit paired with the ruffled detailing and muted paisley print give this dress such a romantic feel. It moves beautifully, and is so much fun to wear because of it!

I also love that you can wear it loose, or cinch it up with a belt to give the dress more shape. It also looks so cute paired with a classic denim jacket, like the one I’m wearing above. (P.S. it’s currently on sale for $18.99 and is great quality!)

Whether you’re looking to go head-first into the “Whimsical Western” look this fall, or simply want to dip your toes in, this dress is a great place to start. Oh, and did I mention it comes in another lovely color combination as well?

For sizing reference, I’m wearing an XS. Due to the loose nature of this dress, I’d recommend sizing down one!

Here are a few other western-inspired pieces I’m loving:

Love from the Sunshine State,

    This dress with the boots and leather bag is absolutely stunning! Reading further and seeing this came from Walmart, my jaw dropped. Looks more like Nieman-Marcus! This dress looks so luxurious and beautiful. I hope you get to wear this outfit OUT to lots of places this fall, and how fun to see people’s reaction when you tell them where you got it
