I’ve slowly but surely started the process of packing up my Spring/Summer clothes to make way for my Fall and Winter wardrobe. That’s not to say I’m wearing all of my sweaters or flannel just yet- since it’s still pretty warm out in the afternoons and evenings right now- but I’m gradually putting away the tropical prints, the neon bikini cover-ups and the flip flops and enjoying the last of my more neutral-hued dresses, lightweight shirts and shorts as we transition into a more Autumnal-inspired color palette.
This breezy, floral-printed red/orange dress with a decorative button top from Basil and Blush– appropriately called the “Coachella Dress” for it’s festival-friendly cut and super breathable material has been one of my favorites throughout the season leading up to now. I wore it during socially distanced ice cream sundae trips, to beach-side strolls, and more recently- to a farmer’s market to pick up some vegetables for a recipe I had been putting together.
And I know that in the coming weeks, I’ll be wearing it to the apple orchard, maybe the pumpkin patch- and while decorating my apartment for the coming season. Of course, I’ll gradually be phasing out my wedge sandals and replacing them with my favorite pair of black, faux-leather riding boots- but I have a feeling they’ll look good with this dress, too.
It’s comfortable and flattering and easy to dress up or down depending on the occasion. This is one I’m going to be sad to pack up until next year!
