Little Striped Dress

We had a cool front blow through over the weekend and it was just heaven. This is my favorite — when seasons are just on the edge of change. You can feel the new season coming. I pulled out this sweater dress I bought a few weeks ago in anticipation for this kind of weather — it’s a lightweight knit so basically perfect for fall. I wish I could exactly express how easy this dress is to wear. It’s one of those slip on and go kind of dresses; very unfussy. I like to wear clothes that are opposite of my personality. It’s a balance. 
I also pulled out one of my favorite purses from last season. I tucked this girl away for spring but it’s back for fall. (It looks like the bigger version is hard to come by, but here is the equally as adorable smaller version!) I tend to go more towards color in the spring and neutrals in the fall with handbags. Do you do this as well? For me, handbags are as seasonal as shoes, but that’s why it’s easy to keep them for longer because I don’t use them year round. 
We are getting close to finishing up our house buying process! I’m so excited to show you guys the new place. I haven’t really shared photos or much on it yet because I’m a full fledged believer in jinxing something. My husband and other advisors have suggested this is folklore, but we will see. I’ve googled it and it seems like a legit thing to believe in. As soon as everything is set, get ready for instagram to be blown up with photos. Also — who wants to come help me move? I pay in hugs and clothes.

    I love this dress – I love anything Eliza J in part from all the Eliza J items you feature. Does this dress have some structure or is it drapey? It looks great on you! May be time for me to cash in my Nordstrom Note!!!
