I can't believe it, but it was in the 60s yesterday. Summer is leaving us! Although I am in denial about cooler weather setting in, the silver lining in that is (drumroll please...) fall fashion! It also means pulling out skirts and dresses from the back of my closet because I am going back to work. This houndstooth dress from SheIn is perfect. I just adore houndstooth and plaid anything in the fall and winter. Long sleeve dresses are perfect for cooler weather too and I have such a hard time finding cute ones! This one would be very cute with boots and tights, too. At only $34 this dress is a steal! I do recommend sizing up though. The fabric is stretchy, but if you don't want it tight, size up one or two sizes. I am wearing a medium for reference.
