Wish List Wednesday: Fall Dresses

Recently, I have found myself lusting over dresses for the fall. September-November in New England is prime time for cute casual dresses and riding boots. If you live somewhere that stays a little warmer throughout the winter, then lucky you because you can wear them longer with out freezing! Sometimes in the mornings, I have no energy to put together a cute outfit (I typically lay mine out the night before, but often change my mind when I wake up) but do not want to wear leggings and a tee shirt, dresses are my new solution. I will just throw on a dress and a necklace, with absolutely no effort you create an adorable and comfortable look. 

When it comes to simple dresses I love shopping the kids section- my appreciate for size 16 at Crewcuts is so real :) Anyways, I typically wear a size 0-2 in dresses and find that a size xl in kids clothing fits like a glove, plus it's so much cheaper! Over the past few months, I have done a few posts in kids dresses, see here & here and I believe that there will be more to come! The orange dress in the center is from Old Navy Kids, it is extremely similar to this Crewcuts dress that sold out in size 14 and 16.  I think this one is even better because it has long sleeves, which is so much more practical for fall. The dress on the top right is from Crewcuts and I think it would add the perfect pop of color to my fall wardrobe and could even be transitioned into spring! 

Let's move on to regular dresses not from the kids department because I have some good finds there as well. The gray dress (top left) from Gap is a thick sweatshirt material with an exposed zipper in the back, perfect for cooler fall days. Gray is one of my favorite shades for fall, so naturally there are two that I am loving, the second one is from Loft. I found this on Pinterest and am loving the embellishments! The blue patterned dress (bottom left) is another fun pattern from J. Crew Factory. I adore the color scheme on this one and am always looking for fun ways to add color to fall outfits. Finally, the return of the green emerald peplum ASOS dress that I talked about in my Homecoming dress ideas post. I am obsessed with this dress and am trying to justify the price tag because I know it is too fancy to wear to school. What dresses are you loving this fall? Leave a link below I would love to check them out!
