I only went to private school for a few years as an elementary-aged child, but there is something about a dress layered with a button down that instantly takes me back to my youth. This classic combination made me feel like I should be skipping down the hallway with my best friends or at least be gossiping in the courtyard with the likes of Blair Waldorf.Keeping with the classic theme, I wore my new monogram bracelet from ONecklace. I’m sure you’ve seen my monogram necklace grace the blog plenty of times, but I’m loving this new addition to my jewelry collection. It’s such a sweet, dainty piece.Dress: Merona Ponte Striped Dress, Top: Merona Favorite Oxford, Shoes: J.Crew Valentina (similar), Necklace: Stella & Dot Somervell, Bracelet: Gold Plated Monogram Bracelet c/o ONecklace, Earrings: Stella & Dot Nancy Stud

Love this dress, I was so tempted to get it the last time I was at Target. You look beautiful.
That dress is darling! And I love the bracelet!
I’ve been layering button-downs under other shirts for just about forever, but only came across the idea of layering them under dresses about in early spring, when it was just becoming a bit too warm to do it. I’m looking forward to trying it with some of my dresses now that we are cooling off again.
I love this dress! It is so flattering on you and the monogram bracelet is adorable!
I love the layered look with this dress! I have that same necklace too. It goes with everything!
Such a great work look!

And another outfit I seriously never would have considered until I see you wearing it!! This is adorable and totally my style but I never would have put it together!! Following your awesome blog is a detriment to my bank account!!
It’s funny–I had something super similar on this morning, and then I changed because I wasn’t sure if it worked. Now I wish I just kept it on, because you look adorable!
I LOVE this! The outfit is so cute and it so reminds me of prep school, but only in the most chic way possible.
This is so adorable and pretty!! Love this outfit on you.

This is a fabulously preppy look! Layering a button down is a great way to wear a sleeveless dress in the fall.

SO inspired by the way you styled this dress! It keeps catching my eye when I see it at Target but I wasn’t sure how to style it and I love the way you did so thank you! 🙂
That dress looks like it’s straight out of J.Crew, that is such a great find! I also love how you kicked it old school and layered it. I need to try this layering out!
Love this dress. Saw it at Target. Love the way you styled it.
Dont’ forget to link up today to my weekly tres-chic fashion thursday link up.
I would totally take all of your jewelry in this outfit! The bracelet is so dainty and pretty while the necklace is bold. I need to step up my accessory game…
This is so cute! I love that the stripes switch directions for the skirt part of the dress
This dress is just adorable. I love the colors and love that wore it with a button down. You look so classy!
Yes this is a fun look and practical too. You can wear the dress by itself in warmer weather and with a shirt in cooler weather.

Such a classic, chic look! The colors of that dress are so perfect and fall-y!
What a gorgeous dress! And I absolutely love layering over dresses, I think it is very chic and professional!
I really, really love your style. Always so classy and this is no exception. I love how a button down can extend the life of a dress into fall and winter.
I love how you’ve styled this dress! I’ve had my eye on it at Target for awhile – I may just have to breakdown and get it!
You look great in this dress! I almost bought it myself. So pretty!

This is such a cute, preppy look! You look so put-together. And I love your dainty monogram bracelet! I just ordered a little gold initial bracelet and can’t wait to get it 🙂
I love layering an oxford under a dress. I need to do it more often!
Great layered look with the dress!
I really love that the stripes are in different directions, and the color pallet works so well for autumn. Great layering!
I was tempted to try this dress on, now I’m convinced 🙂
