Is this the most stereotypical, girly title for a blog post or what??  No apologies though, because I DO love fall and everything pumpkin, and this dress feels like all of those things.  But here's something I keep wondering lately, because I keep hearing people say "pumpkins aren't even spicy!" and making fun of the PSL thing... Is "pumpkin spice" just a shortened variation of "pumpkin PIE spice?!?!"  As in, the flavoring that gets put INTO pumpkin pies to make them taste all cinnamon-y and warm and lovely??!  Is that what PSLs are IMPLYING?  So really, they are PPSLs?!  Am I a genius?  Or am I an idiot for just figuring this out?  Maybe don't answer that. 

Anyway, this lovely orange dress is perfect for fall, and I've been wanting to wear it as more of a jumper for a while (ever since I first wore it on the blog, here).  Although it's still on the short side for me, I definitely like wearing it with a blouse underneath and with something like knee socks or tights.  This blouse is a tricky piece too, because not only is it cropped, but it also has a weird high-low hem (which I generally dislike on all things -- mostly because I can't pull it off), so wearing it under something else seems like my only option.  But I got the blouse during one of ModCloth's crazy sales, and the print reminds me of the illustrations in The Very Hungry Caterpillar, so I had to get it.  I've also decided that I need to wear these shoes more often.  The bows are just too stinking cute.  And being the matchy-matchy girl I am (let's call a spade a spade), I had to have bows on my shoes to match the bows on the dress!  Too cutesy, maybe, but I love it.

Have a wonderful Saturday!

  1. I love layering blouses under dresses/jumpers. It's so perfect for staying warmer and still looking cute in the fall! :)

  2. That print is fun. The illustrations remind me of those books like "Lil Miss Sunshine" and Lil Miss Gossip" and Mr. Happy etc.

  3. I totally wanted to buy this dress when it came out but they didn't have my size. Now I'm wishing I just would have tailored it! You looks so cute here, I especially love the knee highs :). Oh, and I love everything pumpkin too!

  5. What a great color for both fall and summer! You could easily transition this dress anyway you'd like.

  6. You have officially inspired me to try a sleeveless dress as a jumper this week! It's official- I'm doin' it!

  8. You are so adorable and totally ready for fall! I could never pull off this look but you do it well!

  9. Love your outfit! I love the idea of layering blouses under sleeveless dresses, and I've been on the lookout for some like that for some time (since i've realized that most of my dresses have sleeves of some sort), and I love how you did that with your dress here.
