It is still too hot to wear any kind of fall items but regardless, I'm going to wear my favorite fall piece - the blazer... I settled for a bright reddish / orange color to suit the warm cali weather. At least this way I can enjoy my blazer without looking like an idiot dressed for the cold when it's still 90 degrees outside! HA! I really like this dress a lot! the V-neck is flattering and you all know how I feel about vertical stripes! FLATTERING!!! win-win! I also like that this dress gives the illusion of being a two piece set when it's actually a comfortable 1 piece!
