There’s a reason you’ve probably seen this button down, ruffle dress in your Instagram feeds already, it’s the perfect transitional piece for fall!
In DC, the changing of the seasons is pretty bonkers. It’s October 10 and as I’m writing this I’m sitting in the Metro sweating from running around Bethesda trying to find a clients’ office — things that should not be happening when we’re busy buying pumpkins and planning our Halloween costumes. I can’t remember who posted this on Instagram the other day, but they captured it perfectly — fall in DC means a sweater in the morning and sweat on your upper lip come noon.
I digress. As you guys know, I’ve been loving shopping on Amazon lately. (You can catch some of my favorite finds here and here.) I had seen this dress on the site a few times but didn’t bite the bullet until I saw it on Jenn Rog’s Instagram, but as soon as she vouched for it I clicked “make purchase” in my cart. As a blogger, I’ve come to truly value my peer’s opinions when it comes to making purchases and they’re always willing to answer any questions I might have about a product or piece of clothing! If you ever have a question about something I’m sharing, I’m always happy to give a candid and honest opinion, whether it’s something on stories or featured in a post!
This dress is great because it’s super lightweight and while it looks short in the pictures, it’s actually totally appropriate for work and passes the fingertip test. You will likely have to steam or iron the heck out of it when it arrives, but that’s expected when you receive inexpensive clothes in the mail. It didn’t wash as well as I had hoped (I shot this when it was my second time wearing it) and I had tried to iron out the wrinkles, but I think a steamer would do a much better job. Ashlee from Cobalt Chronicles also has it in the orange/red color and as she pointed it, it does have functioning buttons!
