Well, once it's officially Fall, I no longer like to wear summer colors. But I'm not going to wear blanket scarves, tall boots, and sweaters in eighty degree weather either. So on this beautiful sunny 68 degree day I chose a long-sleeve yet very lightweight dark floral dress to wear to church.
My dress is from a Stitch Fix that I received last year. I previously showed it to you in THIS POST with leggings, booties, and a vest; but this is my favorite way to wear this dress...bare legged with sandals.
The dress has lightly scattered blue and pink flowers and a very pretty eyelet detail all the way up the arm and shoulders.
I carried a pink clutch to pick out the pink colors in the flowers.
My light blue sandals from Francesca's (old) pick out the light blue color in the flowers too!
Every time I wear these sandals people comment on them. They are definitely a statement piece. Francesca's really does sell the most unique shoes. You just have to remember to look down when you're shopping in one of their stores. They put their shoes on the floor underneath their clothing.
Both times I've worn this dress, I wore it with a choker. This time I chose a black velvet choker with a blue stone. I also chose blue stone earrings and chose not to wear a bracelet because my sleeves are so long they would cover up a bracelet.
Because of my long torso and long legs, most dresses are to short on me (but I wear them anyway otherwise I'd never be able to wear a lot of dresses). This one is a nice length for me; not too short at all!
Shift dresses are my favorite because I do not have a waist. A lot of women dislike shift dresses because they are so shapeless, but if you have a shape like mine (where your middle is the same measurement as your bust and hips), they are perfect!
So what's the weather like in your neck of the woods? Have you been able to bring out the blanket scarves yet, or are you still wearing sandals like me? I'd love to hear from you!
Have a Great Day! Amy
