Blazers and tees, distressed jeans and heels, leather jackets and feminine dresses are just a few ways I usually pull off the vibe. But lately, I’ve been hooked on a new way of looking casually dressed-up. Enter the slip dress—loungewear, pajamas, whatever you want to call it.

I picked up this silky midi dress from Vince recently and its quickly become a reliable favorite for some fall layering. Just about any knit or outwear piece will look offbeat and cool next to an über feminine silk. This find also unleashed a newfound need for more midnight blues, and by “need” I mean full monochrome looks in the dark shade. Here’s the thing about navy that I love, it’s a softer version of black which feels right for this time of year. Not to mention black and navy together are utterly chic if you ask me.

I’m a huge fan of black and navy pairings too!!! It always baffles me that some people think they can’t be worn together because I think it’s so chic and sophisticated.

Love how you layered the slip dress, I haven’t seen anyone do that yet and it looks amazing!
