Holy 90 degrees!  Hope everyone is enjoying their start to the Fall season!  The return of all things Pumpkin Spice, cute scarves & those loved/hated Ugg/Ugg-like boots!  Here in MI, we've been flirting with 90° for the past week or so and it won't be subsiding until the end of this week! πŸ”₯ Certainly not complaining because once its gone, it's GONE! ✌🏾Cheers to soaking up these last few faux days of Summer! 🍻

I have to admit, I was a little jealous reading through blogs Friday and seeing all of the Fall fashion in action, while I'm over here literally on fire.  I have to think that some of you braved the element like I did to get those shots!  I decided to go with something that could go from a warmer Fall day, like today, to the actual temps of the season and maybe even into the beginning of Winter with some layering.

I was persua-, I mean, "inspired" to get this dress by Airie of Fashion to Live FL Style.  I had this dress in my cart forEVA and just wasn't sure if I should get it.  I saw the way she styled it and bought it at that very moment.  Hers is from ShoeDazzle, but lucky for me, JustFab was having a major sale, so I copped it for only $14.98!

A couple things with this dress before you take the plunge.  I generally wear a medium in dresses, so that's what I ordered, but when it came, it was HUGE on me!  The knit of the dress is one of the looser ones making me think that it would probably lose shape over the day.  I ended up sending it back and exchanging for a small, which is what I'm wearing.  I'm hoping that after the first wash/dry, that it will fit a little tighter.  Also (as you can see) even though its a knit, you may wanna hit it with a steamer before you wear it.  The crease across the bottom is KILLING me to look at in the photos, but I will get over it.  Mother Nature and her 90° temps made that choice for me!


linking up with these beauties this week!
