Happy November!!  Today I am so thrilled to kick off the Fall/Winter 2017 edition of my 30 Dresses in 30 Days series!  I’m so grateful for your amazing response to the 30 Dresses in 30 Days series in the past (can you believe we’re on season FOUR?!), so I’m super excited to get going on what I hope will be the best series yet.  If you’re new to Memorandum, here’s the skinny: every day for the next 30 days, I’ll be posting a new dress on the 30 Dresses portal.   Each post will be geared towards a specific Fall/Winter occasion—everything from favorite fall activities like today’s fall bonfire dress, to holiday party dresses, winter work dresses and many more!

In addition to providing a fun collection of my favorite dresses, my goal with this series is to offer a true resource for navigating all of the season’s occasions—many of which really sneak up on us this time of year.  Especially in the lead up to the holidays, work and life often get in the way of planning ahead for the parties, events, trips, weddings and other occasions that make the fall and winter seasons so special.  Whether you have a Thanksgiving soiree, a formal office holiday party or a family ski trip on the calendar, feeling like you “have nothing to wear” shouldn’t hold you back from enjoying all of the festivities (…especially because they pretty much all involve lots of booze and food, two things that should never be foregone due to a clothing dilemma).


But even worse than feeling like you don’t have the right dress to wear is feeling like you actually don’t even know what the appropriate dress is for the occasion.  Holy panic button.  What do I wear to a fall bridal shower?!  What does one wear to a winter wedding?  Is it cool to wear footie pajamas and a quilted puffer to a client meeting when it’s -700 degrees out?!


If you’ve stressed about these sartorial challenges in the past, stress no more.  Over the next 30 days, I’ll be breaking down every upcoming fall and winter occasion, so you can just focus on the stuff that really matters, like your Black Friday shopping strategy or how you’re going to make conversation with your weird Aunt Karen at Thanksgiving.  (pro tip: hard alcohol)

    Love the jacket because it is slightly longer than the regular moto jackets. And the {fleece} lining makes it look a little warmer for the chilly autumn nights. Great start to the series.
