Goodbye Charleston, Hello Dottie!

A few months back I had the pleasure of reviewing an adorable dress by Lesley Evers. This summer it saved me from looking like a complete slob at work after I had snoozed one--okay, maybe more like three--too many times! This year Lesley is debuting her first fall line and I was thrilled to be asked to review one of the dresses because I really am a huge fan!

As usual, my dress came beautifully wrapped--P.S because of this ribbon I'm now obsessed with this color purple for fall!


I decided on the Dottie dress. Loved the geometric pattern and because it's sleeveless I thought it'd be a great transition piece for fall.
The Dottie made it into my suitcase to Charleston this weekend for a test run, and honestly, I can't think of a single negative thing about it! The cotton is a heavier weight for fall, but the dress is completely lined so I wasn't at all uncomfortable in the 80+ degree heat.
Here's how I wore it...

I paired it with a triple strand turquoise necklace--obviously living in complete denial that summer is over! Once the colder weather comes I'll be throwing on some tights, boots, and a boyfriend cardigan. Can't wait!

I think the Riley (above) might be next on my list. How adorable is she with her duck boots?! Guarantee I could not pull this one off! Check out the rest of the fall collection and let me know what you think!

  6. I've had my eye on the Dottie! I'm glad I can see it on someone now- I was afraid it'd be too long but it's a perfect length. Love it.
