How do you dress for Fall? My cool weather clothing consists of plaid flannel, zip-up hoodies, and business clothes. I have several work dresses for special events like BHG Stylemaker and High Point Market, but when I work from home (everyday!) I wear whatever is most comfortable.
This Fall I decided to change things up and order a few clothing pieces online. Goals included: comfortable, flattering, and reasonably priced. I had success ordering from Amazon a few months ago, so I ordered 2 new long sleeve dresses from Amazon. And I also ordered a box from Stitch Fix that included jeans, several tops, and a scarf.

Overall I really like this maxi dress. The natural waist is flattering and the material is soft with some stretch. Also—pockets! I will wear it “everyday” and to church. When it gets cooler out I plan to layer it with a denim jacket. The material is 95% Rayon and 5% Spandex. I ordered the dress in medium, dark grey. Grey Stripe Maxi dress for $21.99 on Amazon.
The jeans and burgundy knit top above arrived in my Stitch Fix box. I am picky about skinny jeans feeling tight on my leg, but because these have stretch and a released hem at the bottom they felt great. If I keep the jeans they will be a splurge at $78, but I have loved all the jeans I’ve kept in the past from Stitchfix.
I like the burgundy top because I can dress it up or down with jewelry. It feels like a lightweight sweater. The tag says “gentle wash”—and that does concern me. I don’t have a lot of gentle wash clothing and might forget to separate it from the rest of our laundry.
I looked for a dress with buttons this summer, but when I tried them on at Forever 21 they didn’t fit my figure. The buttons on this dress are decorative, and pockets and waist of the dress are flattering. It would be easy to change up the shoes, necklace or add a scarf. The material is 95% cotton, 5% spandex and I ordered the dress in black, size medium. Long sleeve skater dress for $21.99 on Amazon.
Lastly, these are the same jeans I wore with the burgundy top. The knit cotton sweater is from my Stitch Fix box. I like that the sweater is casual and comfortable—a nicer version of a sweatshirt. I wasn’t sure about the stripes but my family likes it. The sweater is $68 and requires a gentle cycle wash.
While the clothes from Stitch Fix are more expensive that I usually buy, I do find their clothes are good quality and last for several seasons.

A big thank you to my husband Lee Fain for taking the pictures, and our son Bryce for holding up the reflector. The sun was going down while we took these pictures which was fun to quickly work through-ha! I have a few things to learn for “fashion” pictures, but I hope you find it helpful!
