Checkmate

Outfit Details: Dress and Jacket (similar) Charlotte Russe (c/o), Prada Sunglasses (similar), Aldo Ankle Booties, Charlotte Russe Clutch 

One of my favorite tours from my Paris trip was the day excursion we took to Versailles. It's about 40 minutes by train outside of Paris. We spent the day roaming the royal apartments and overlooking the luxurious and well-manicured gardens. I packed this checkered quarter sleeve dress with the royal theme in mind. It reminded me of the classic parisian decor. 

While I enjoy plaid for fall, this print is so refreshing. I styled it with a cropped moto jacket to keep warm when traveling outdoors. Crop tops had their moment this summer and it looks like they are here to stay through the cooler seasons. Designers, such as Maz Azria, showcased winterized crops on the runway from turtle necks to cropped knits, and my personal favorite... cropped motos. There's nothing more stylish than a cool cut jacket paired with a flirty skater dress. Mixing edge with soft prints adds dimension to any look. Pair with ankle booties and viola, you've got yourself a royal look on a small budget.
