I hope you are having a great week! I had the day off of work yesterday which was really nice, and tomorrow is my son’s birthday. So the week is definitely flying by! Fall will be here in a matter of days, but we’ve had some unseasonably warm weather lately (which I am not complaining about). Even though the weather is warm, I’ve been planning out my fall content and I have so many ideas floating in my head! Anyway, one of my favorite retailers, Ann Taylor, is having their Friends of Ann Event. With the change of seasons about to take place now is the time to take advantage of the sale and add a few new pieces to your fall wardrobe. I normally shop at Ann Taylor for work outfits, but they have lots of great casual pieces as well. And with the Friends of Ann Event you can get 40% off your purchase with an extra bonus 10% off full price pants and denim(use code FRIENDS40). And now that Ann Taylor offers ShopRunner shipping, there is no minimum purchase requirement for free two day shipping. It is very easy to get Shoprunner shipping for free (as long as you have an American Express, MasterCard or Paypal account). I had the chance to host a local blogger event with Ann Taylor in Troy, Michigan, and was able to preview a few of my favorite fall pieces, and I thought I would show them to you today!

Ann Taylor Textured Stripe Knit Dress

I am always looking for comfortable yet professional looking pieces for work. When I’m on the job I’m either walking around, or sitting in a chair talking to patients. So I definitely don’t want my clothing to be too constrictive. And that is what I love about this soft and stretchy textured stripe knit dress! I’ve never found a striped piece of clothing I didn’t like and this one is no exception. The mix of soft grey and cream is so pleasing to the eye. This dress is made of a thicker cotton/polyester blend, which makes it ideal for cooler temperatures. And I love that it has pockets! Sizing is true to size, and I am wearing my typical size 2. With the Ann Taylor sale this dress is well-priced at under $70

To give this dress a little more style I decided to wear this belt at my waist. Belts are such a great way to elevate the look of any dress or skirt. And because it is cold in the office where I work I am wearing this cardigan over the dress. The one I am wearing is in limited sizes, but I also have this one that would look perfect with this dress as well. I received so many complements on this look!

More Dresses to Love

Ann Taylor always has so many nice dresses, and this is definitely true for their fall line. I like this floral shift dress for work as it looks so stylish and comfortable. To elevate the look pair it with a blazer. Fall is a great time to wear floral patterns, and this dress would be perfect to wear when the leaves are changing. Animal prints are as popular as ever this year, and this zebra print dress with a cardigan would definitely make you stand out at the office. And I’ve had my eye on this polka dot midi dress for quite some time!

Tops and Bottoms

Separates are also staples for me at the office. I love finding pieces that you can mix and match for multiple looks. This ivory rib stitch sweater with black trim would look great with pants or a skirt. Add a cheetah print scarf for a touch of flare! I am obsessed with this plaid midi skirt for fall. Pair with a red blouse or sweater for a classy and stylish look. This zebra print sweater would be so easy to dress up or dress down. And these classic grey trousers would look great with so many tops!

So if you love shopping Ann Taylor today is the day to find your fall favorites. And as always, thanks for stopping by!
