Finding the Perfect Fall Maxi Dress

Building the perfect wardrobe involves acquiring pieces that flow from one season into the next. It’s easy to make a transition from summer to fall with a maxi dress. Enter denim jackets, leather jackets, scarves, hoodies, boots and blazers. Sometimes we want a maxi dress that makes a fall statement on its own. Long sleeves make it easy, as well as colors that reflect the season.

From Sandals to Boot(ies)


I searched for the perfect fall maxi dress. There really isn’t a perfect maxi dress that suits every lady across the board, but you can find one that works for you. There’s a dress silhouette that complements your body type. Of course your style personality and color palette are also important. You’ll go from sandals to boots and booties!

Maybe you want simple or you’re the type who goes for bold. In the line-up below, I’m particularly fond of the Pop Graffiti and Peace Dove maxi dresses by Choies. What do you think? Here’s to the transitional maxi dress!

Welcome Back, Beanie!

As we begin to settle into fall, we welcome back the beanie! I know some of us have been wearing beanies throughout the summer (I’m not calling out any names. You know who you are). *Wink*

Beanies are a great accessory. They’re not too casual, like a baseball cap. They’re not too dressy, like a traditional church, or as I call it, a “sister” hat. Beanies are definitely fall’s bad hair day fix, making them a fashion staple.

There are many styles to choose from—slouchy and pom to name a few. I don’t know about you, but I’m considering adding embellishments to some basic beanies to create a just-for-me look. Prices vary, from super cheap beauty supply store finds to high-end wool beanies.

Say it with me, “Welcome back, beanie!”

Welcome Back, Beanie!
