A Midi Dress for all the Seasons

I’m not sure how the weather has been for you, but for us it has been all over the board recently. One week it was perfect crisp fall weather while another week the temperatures rise to the mid-80’s and hang there for hot, long days on end. What’s a gal to wear in these indecisive temps? Especially one that celebrates fall early and hard by putting away all her summer whites and linens and pulling out all her oxblood, navy, olive and sweaters! Well, I found a quick solution in the form of this midi-dress from spring! (You’ll remember seeing it here).

The short sleeves, Midi length and easy flow of this dress make it perfect for going between many seasons. And the color is a great purple-maroon that’s a bit muted and works perfect for fall. This dress was so popular for a number of seasons now that they keep stocking it for each upcoming one in different colors. And I gotta say, I’m really digging this. There’s nothing worse than falling in love with a piece but waiting too long to pull the trigger or worse- buying it in one color and going back for more- only to find it no longer in stock! They no longer carry my color but there is an oh-so-pretty maroon shade that would look very similar.

This time around I paired it with an older beaded gray belt from Anthropologie for some pop and pizzaz and a fun new wool gray hat and Sole Society taupey-gray ankle booties. The hat is such a great and fun piece to style for fall. The extra wide brim makes it look easy and lady like and the color plays so well with just about any other in your fall color palette! The booties are from last season and are an absolute wardrobe work horse if you ask me. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve worn these booties and how many different items they work with. Jeans? Yup. Leggings? You got it. Maroon dress? (See above). Olive skinnies? Jogger style pants? You name it, this taupe color and not-too-tall block heel can work it. Love ’em. I linked similar ones for you below.
Happy Monday, xo jules
