Casual Day Dresses for Fall

by | Sep 11, 2020 | Style

Polo Dress (also in black) / Parker and Hyde Tote / Nude Sandals

It’s a well-known fact that I am a dress girl.  For me it’s mostly because it’s a one and done decision. I am not a morning person and so having one great item I can pull on quickly and get out the door is a winner!  I’ve shared a full round up of casual day dresses for Fall in a boutique below.

As we all settle into fall schedules (which are probably ever-changing like ours!), I thought a quick round up of throw on and go dresses would be a good idea. These are the pieces that I am searching for and thought you might be as well.

This navy polo style dress has been a go to since Tuckernuck sent it to me several weeks ago. It was the first thing I packed In my carry-on when we moved my oldest to California..  The classic navy cotton pique fabric is trimmed in ivory and red making it a great transition to fall dress.  They also just released it in black with ivory and rust trim!  It reminded me of a few Lacoste dresses I had a few years ago and wore out!  I’m eyeing this one and this one, too!  The red, white and blue coloration seems Patriotic for today also as we remember the precious lives that were lost on September 11, 2001. #neverforget

This classic gingham sweatshirt dress from Draper James is a MUST!  Gingham isn’t something I’ve worn a lot of but I’ve loved the strapless gingham dress this summer.  This long sleeved sweatshirt style dress will be a constant carpool go-to as things cool off!

I’ve gathered my favorites from all of our favorite online retailers in the boutique below. You’ll notice there are some sleeveless dresses since the weather can be fickle this time of year.  All of these can be topped with your favorite layering piece. Mine of course is the the Southcott go-to cardigan available in white and black. Speaking of Southcott, this fabulous casual dress is a preview of my Fall Collection coming next week!  It has a similar body and hemline as the anchor dress from my Spring Collection with Southcott.  You are getting the first peek!

TGIF and happy weekend!
