I had entirely too much fun taking these photos. Haha. There is nothing better than a twirly dress and privacy! This running trail is wonderfully quiet, and it’s the perfect spot for me to twirl around like a maniac by myself. However, every time I come to this wooded area to take photos, I always cause at least one dog to run away from its owner, so it can come and say hi to me…which I absolutely love. (I want a pet dog so bad! They must be able to sense how puppy deprived I am.) I’m bringing dog treats with me next time I shoot here. Haha.

But anywho, before I get too off track, let’s talk about this outfit for a second! This Closet skater dress is one of my absolute favorites. I love, love, love Closet’s skater dresses (a.k.a “Luck Be a Lady Dresses” at ModCloth). I own three and would own one in every single color and pattern if I could. The fit is so flattering, and I can twirl in them! I don’t know why, but I never thought this one would look good with tights. But I’m certainly glad I gave it a try with my new favorite wine colored ones! It was so nice to break this dress out again in the cooler weather.

And I live in this hat and boot cuffs in the winter. I’ve had them for years and they are always my go-to. I even have a matching scarf (which I’ll save for another day).

I took these outfit photos in New Jersey, last week I think? Anyways, the sunset was so beautiful on my walk back to my car! I just had to share.

I hope all my American readers have a wonderful time celebrating Thanksgiving with your family tomorrow! I just finished making Mona’s pumpkin pie cupcakes for my husband’s family’s Thanksgiving. They’re so good! (Click here for her recipe.)

  1. Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving!
    I adore this outfit – it is so perfectly styled and coordinated. You’re amazing at styling.
    I’ve got a Luck be a Lady Dress in Red and I absolutely love it, and I wear it a lot around this time of year (festive red).
    Thank you so much for linking to the pumpkin cupcakes again, hope they turned out great and that you had a yummy and fun Thanksgiving.
    Much love,

    1. Thank you so much, Mona! You are far too kind! And oooh the Luck be a Lady Dress in red is stunning! I can’t wait to see it. 🙂 And your pumpkin cupcakes turned out fantastic – everyone really enjoyed them. 🙂

  2. Love this! This is one of my favorite photo sets from you! I have yet to own a Luck Be a Lady dress but a bunch are on my wishlist! And yes, the dogs probably do sense that you love them!!! XO

    1. Aw thank you, Lauren! Quick go buy a Luck Be a Lady dress! ModCloth’s cyber monday sale is still going on! 😉

  3. The Luck Be A Lady dresses ate my FAVORITE! I own at least 7 pairs haha. I love how magical these photos are in the woods! You are like the fairy princess of the woodland. We’re spending Thanksgiving at my brothers house this year since he just bought a new house. Im definitely excited for some family time and of course the food haha. Happy Thanksgiving!


    1. Haha they are the BEST dresses! And thank you so much, Amanda! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your brother! 🙂

  4. Happy Thanksgiving, Lindsey!

    I have had my eye on that dress for a looooong time, and I think there are three or four different versions of it in my ModCloth wishlist. I love how versatile it is! And of course you look incredible in it!

    Aren’t twirly dresses the best? I’m the same way–I can’t resist doing a bunch of twirling pictures in a dress like that!

    1. Thank you, Devinne! Happy Thanksgiving to you too! Unfortunately, this exact print is sold out now (they didn’t carry it for very long at all for some reason)…but there are a whole bunch of similar ones on Closet’s website and ModCloth has a couple too. And there is nothing better than a twirly dress! 🙂 I always have fun doing twirling pictures even if out of 50,000 of them…only 2 make me not look like a crazy person. Haha.

  5. I love these forest photos! Your twirling is too cute. Love this dress–the pattern is beautiful!
