The first of a couple outfit posts from my Atlas Adventures Lisbon trip! Was so excited to get these photos back from Victoria! Because the weather was still so warm in Lisbon (despite the fact that I wanted to dress for fall) I ended up packing a lot of dresses for the trip! (You can see my Lisbon packing list in this post!) This little yellow polka dot number is one of them, and it looked just as cute with sneakers to log many miles around the city as it does styled with boots to wear in the cooler midwestern temps.
The $29 dress you’ll wear year-round
About the dress:
This dress is from Amazon and comes in a variety of colors–the material is super lightweight and a little bit slinky. You could easily style a slip under it if you wanted extra warmth–you can see how I styled it for fall right here by pairing it with my favorite sock boots (still a few sizes left on major markdown!) If you’re looking for a dress to wear to casual parties any time of the year, showers, or any occasion where you want to be comfortable and casual, but nice and put-together, this is a great option.
You can easily dress it up with some heels, or add on a cute jean jacket (my two favorites reviewed here) or a leather jacket.

About the sneakers:
These were one of the few pairs of shoes I brought on the trip, and I wore the almost every day. I always refer to my Freda Salvador Eda sneakers as “my go-to warm weather sneakers” and I’ll reach for these anytime the weather is above 60 degrees. I love the d’Orsay style cut-out, which give them a feminine touch, making them super easy to style with dresses in particular. (Which can be trickier with a chunkier or more sporty type sneaker!) They are also SO comfortable. I ordered my regular size, but read the reviews as it seems to vary from person to person based on your feet. They’re definitely a higher price than I’d typically spend on footwear, but I have gotten so much wear out of them, I think they are for sure worth the investment. (Especially because you’re supporting a small women-owned brand, too!)
About the bag:
From, where else? ABLE! Shocking, I know. You have seen me wear this Delilah belt bag quite a bit since I got it last year. (Reviewed here!) I really love this bag and wear it often especially when traveling! My favorite feature is that it lays very flat, making it easy to pack and also the slim profile makes it comfortable and easy to wear when traveling. It also has a secret zipper compartment in the back to keep valuables secure against your body. (Like your passport or cash!) It comes in black as well. You can save 15% off ABLE site wide with code JESSKEYS15 (this code never expires!)
Hope you have a great rest of your day!
