First things first. I want to talk about the most important part of this post that will benefit all of my Austin family, friends and followers! I am so excited to partner with Domain NORTHSIDE and Marine Layer to give y’all an exclusive discount + a $1,000 giveaway! Let me give you the giveaway details before it ends Friday! All you have to do is head to my Instagram post and follow the entry instructions. It is extremely easy and you could win a $1,000 Marine Layer gift card!
Marine Layer recently opened up a store here in Austin a little over a year ago and right now they are having an exclusive discount code for all Austinites (DOMAINNORTHSIDE) which will get you 20% off your entire purchase. Just head to Marine Layer in the Domain NORTHSIDE, pick out some goodies and verbally tell them the discount code when you are ready to check out. If they don’t have your size in store, fear not, they can order whatever size you need.
This is the first time I shopped with Marine Layerand have to say, I was pleasantly surprised with how much I loved their clothes. Probably because everything was so soft and cozy! Their signature fabric is made with MicroModal which is made from recycled beechwood. The pulp production is self-sufficient so their tees are sustainable, eco-friendly, and so soft. I should have known from just reading about their slogan – When we say our stuff is soft, we really mean it. It’s not like “oh, this feels nice” soft. It’s “holy sh#% how did they make this I’m never taking it off” soft.
I had perused the Marine Layer website prior to shopping in store. I always like having an idea of what I want before going anywhere. It just makes it easier to walk in, grab what you want, try on and go.
The first thing that caught my eye was this chic black dress. Shocking, right? You wouldn’t believe it but the detail on this dress is stunning. The entire outer layer is a ribbed Micromodal with the perfect amount of Spandex added in. It is literally the perfect dress for any and every body type. I know it’s not maternity but it would definitely make the perfect dress for a bump. I only know this because my food baby was in full effect when we shot this! 😂
Not only is the fit amazing but this dress is the perfect transitional piece to take you into Fall. This is dress from their Fall line but I will definitely be wearing it out about in the Summer. Another thing I loved about this dress is the fact that it is lined! It’s literally a double layer dress. Yes, it is a little warmer in the summer but it is going to be perfect to get you through the cooler months. Since it’s double lined you won’t have to worry about those imperfections coming through. It also won’t be as clingy as most cotton dresses. I am wearing a size medium for reference. I don’t like my dresses skin tight so I always go up a size.
Grab your moto jackets when the cooler temps roll around! There are so many ways to wear this dress for Fall. Obviously, I will be wearing one of my many suede or leather jackets but you can definitely dress this up with a chic coat and a pair of heels. I paired this dress with two different sets of shoes in this post to show the versatility. Remember, everyone needs the perfect LBD (little black dress) in their closet. Don’t pass this one up! The price point is perfection too.

I also shot another casual look if you are more of a jeans and tee shirt kinda gal. If you don’t own a utility jacket for Fall you are definitely missing out. This is such a practical piece to have in your closet for any occasion. Definitely size down if you want a more fitted look. I opted for a size XS so the jacket didn’t look overbearing compared to the rest of my look. I was actually planning on pairing this jacket with the black dress as well!
Their tees are what makes Marine Layer what they are. Marine Layer started with tees and has evolved into so much more. Just know that you are getting the best of the best when you buy one of their shirts. I always love a good graphic tee so this one definitely stood out! Even though I am never late anywhere I go, I still had to have it!
Y’all have to swing by and see what Marine Layer at the Domain Northside has in-store and don’t forget to use the discount DOMAINNORTHSIDE for 20% off. They really do have the perfect comfy and casual goodies for Fall that will give you effortless looks everyday.
