An Easy Way to Dress for Fall

One of the easiest ways to dress for the cooler Fall weather is to pair a long-sleeved dress with tights and boots. It’s a simple formula and you can accessorize as needed: fur vests, felt hats, long cardigans – there are so many options!

LOFT Twilight Floral Shirtdress with black tights and boots
Dress: c/o LOFT / Boots: c/o Cougar / Necklace: H&M (similar) / Bag: Chanel

This Twilight Floral Shirtdress is from LOFT. I visited the store recently to pick out some new Fall clothes. Since I wear jeans 75% of the time, I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and choose at least one item that was slightly dressy yet easy to wear. I love the printed leaf pattern of this dress, and the button-down style is casual yet feels elegant.

Here are some of the other Fall pieces I tried on – there were a lot of rust and navy options and even some blush pink! The fanfare blouse incorporates all three colours – I think it’s one of LOFT’s signature prints for this season.

LOFT Striped Dolman Tee with Pink Ruffle Scarf

The slouchy Striped Dolman Tee was so comfortable – my friend bought it, while I picked up this (non-Fall) pink scarf on clearance for $9!

LOFT Pink Split Neck Tunic

If you know me AT ALL…then you’ll know that I had to buy this Pink Split Neck Tunic!

LOFT Dotblock Ruffle Shell

I also tried on the Dotblock Ruffle Shell –  I think this would look cute tucked into this faux leather pencil skirt!

In the end, I left the store with three pieces – the shirt dress, split-neck tunic and pink scarf. It was a great time to buy as LOFT had 30% off new Fall items PLUS they were giving out cash cards to use on future purchases – score!

Have you purchased any new clothes for Fall?

    Love the dress! Since I hate my upper arms, any excuse to cover them is good! I especially love dresses with long sleeves. And yes, that light pink top is SO you!

    I love the first outfit. If I could live in distressed denim and striped shirts I would! And you got such an amazing deal on that scarf!

      Thanks Megan – I love distressed denim so much – but it's hard to find a good pair that doesn't fall apart LOL!

    Now that is a pretty floral dress Ella. Love the dark colors. I was at the mall quickly today and bought a few things but didn't have a lot of time to stop at Loft. Love that soft pink blouse.
