October 2, 2017
Since October has finally rolled around, i’ve decided to welcome fall with open arms. With one walk outside in the chilly breeze, I feel ready to carve a pumpkin, drink some cider, go to a haunted house, roast a marshmallow, and enjoy all that this season has to offer. I’ve also been shopping like a mad woman stocking up on chunky sweaters (you guys need this one), comfortable leggings, skirts, and of course, long sleeve dresses.
My entire life, I’ve always been a dress girl through and through. I prefer dresses and skirts to jeans any day. They’re like magic, you throw them over your head, and voila – you effortlessly look put together. I distinctly remember that I must have worn them so often in college that when I wore jeans one day, a classmate said to me “wow, i’ve literally never seen you in pants before” LOL. I guess i’m a creature of habit (or comfort).
When I stumbled upon this dress from Zaful, I knew I had to have it. Anyone who knows me can tell you I live for embroidery so you know this was in my cart in less than a minute. Long sleeve dresses are perfect for this time of year because they look great with booties, heels, over the knee boots (a fave), or worn as long tunics with leggings. They are seriously the ultimate fall staple that I think everyone should have in their closet. I’ve found a ton of cute ones at Zaful, Boohoo, and Shein. Check out a couple of my faves below:
