Fashionista Friday: Grace’s Mini $5 Fall Floral Find

Last month’s weather was pretty wild fashionistas. Were you around when it was almost 80 degrees on Halloween?!

I was mind blown at how warm it was and it made me realize it’s maybe not quite the time to put away my mini dresses yet. DC weather can be quite erratic so having a few lighter dresses in your winter closet might not be such a bad idea.

Today’s Fashionista Friday, Grace, shows us you can still keep up with fall vibes while wearing an ensemble that’s a little more on the summer side.

Grace, a world traveler, blogger, and fashion addict is a California resident with a love of all things Goodwill.

As you can see from her Insta feed, @GraceinGreys, she enjoys mixing different types of pieces while maintaining a consistently neutral color palette. Her outfits mainly take cues from the 90’s infused with a modern day trendy aesthetic by way of different types of fabrics and clothing cuts.

In her $5 Goodwill find today, she’s rocking a 90’s-style Betsey Johnson inspired mini dress with a pair of modern chocolate brown short booties.

One reason why I’m particularly in love with this dress is because of its multi-seasonal versatility. Without tights it’s a classic summer staple. But with stockings and boots it turns into a cozy look to wear for fall – especially with an olive military jacket.

This dress (and Grace) goes to show us that short sleeves and short dresses still have a place in a wardrobe despite temperatures dropping.

Thanks Grace for re-opening my eyes to this fashion tip! Short dresses always have their place in my closet. Just add on boots and a pair of stockings, and you’re all set. Keep on Goodwill shopping, my Cali Goodwill sister!
