Closet Staple: The utility dress

Happy Wednesday everyone! 

I am recovering from last nights nail bitting presidental election! I literally was clued to CNN all night long! This was my first presedental election ever that I was able to vote in! And I could not be anymore prouder to be an American, and a voter! 

Now on to today’s post! I know you all are thinking why is she styling this utility dress again! Back in  the summer I bought this wine colored dress. And then I styled it in late August with a summer spin. Now that it is way chiller, I finally can go and add some layers to this dress! My favorite thing about this dress is how much of a closet staple it is! It is one of those dresses that you can wear all year long! Which is something I really love, since I am such a versitle kinda girl with my clothes!
