The Perfect Fall Dress

Flirty and feminine dresses aren’t the first thing that come to mind when one thinks about fall fashion. But I’m here to tell you…you’re doing it wrong! This ruffled frock is the perfect piece to transition into the new season! The dark floral print and flowy, flattering silhouette make it the perfect fall dress. The sweet bell sleeves, tied with tassels are the icing on the cake.

The weather doesn’t cool down here in Chicago until well into September at the earliest, making fall the ideal time for dresses and booties. Especially these to die for cut-out booties by Jeffrey Campbell. I nearly fell over when I saw these and absolutely couldn’t walk away without them!

And once late fall arrives, I’ll simply swap about my booties, for over the knee boots. Mine are pretty pricey but worth every penny, in my opinion. But if you’re looking for a more budget-friendly option, these are amazing. And this pair is a near exact dupe for less than half the price.

And did I mention this perfect fall dress comes in under $80? I had always wanted to try the Tularosa brand but thought their dresses would be too short on my 5′ 7″ frame. Well, I’m happy to report that I was wrong! I’m also happy to report that Saks Off 5th has an incredible selection at outlet prices:)

So there you go: your go-to fall outfit formula for brunch, date night, anytime. 

And on another note, Shopbop is having a surprise end of season sale and its too good not to share!
