Semi-Sheer Fall Florals

This summer I found myself some maxi dresses that I made work for my petite height.  Click here and here to see what I mean.

As the weather cools to Fall temperatures … I’m doing my best to avoid jackets, leggings and pantyhose for as long as possible.

Maxi dresses are a perfect solution to doing just that! 😉
Lawrence Kerr Photography -4844I’ve worn this semi-sheer maxi dress many times this summer …. and YUP it can be also be worn as a coverup with your swimsuit!

The 3/4 sleeves with buttoned cuffs are perfect for coverage, without being too heavy and warm for Fall.

I traded the sandals for my zippered black boots to go with the daring vibe of this sheer frock.  The boots and fringe purse I paired it with kinda adds some edginess to the allover floral print.

The entire front is buttoned… I chose to keep it unbuttoned to mid-thigh to allow my shorts to peek out at I move.

The V-neckline highlights the girls … being chesty the buttons tended to gap, so I chose to wear a plunge bra for maximum cleavage and just embraced it! 😉

And the elasticized waist just sinches me in at the right spots, showing off that coveted hourglass figure. ❤ ❤ ❤

Being 5’2 … this dress is hella long without the heels of these boots.  But I’ve worn it with flats by tying little knots on the end of each side bottoms and it works beautifully!

I see myself creating new Fall looks as the weather gets colder by wearing this frock with skinny jeans or leggings …hmmm
