Dress: Topshop // Sweater: Gap (similar) // Shoes: Marc Fisher // Sunnies: Karen Walker 

 I love finding pieces that can be styled into multiple looks such as this black slip dress from Topshop for Nordstrom. In the next few posts I will be showing three different ways to style this classic slip dress for all occasions. I have tried on a million slip dresses but fell in love with this one because it is lined and not sheer. Black is my favorite color, so naturally it was my first choice, but this dress comes in other colors including a light pink that I also love.
 
The first thing I like to do in the morning is grab coffee, and go through all my emails. This dress goes perfectly with a large knit cardigan when running out the door early in the morning. I am wearing a cardigan that I got from Gap last year, but they have a ton of similar cardigans in their new arrivals for fall! As the day gets hotter, this dress also looks cute with a jacket or sweater tied around the waist. I paired this look with my favorite Marc Fisher flatforms to add some subtle height without having to wear heels. These shoes are seriously as comfortable as wearing flats but give some extra length to legs when wearing a dress.
 
If you are ever near the Harwood District in Dallas, Magnolias Sous Le Pont is the cutest coffee shop. I enjoyed their medium roast during this shoot and my photographer had an iced latte that was so delicious! xoxo
