The Perfect Dress for Fall

Hey y’all, welcome back! Today I’ll be sharing with y’all my favorite dress for fall. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve definitely seen me in this dress before. It’s the Skipper Popover Dress from Lilly Pulitzer. I purchased this during the After Party Sale in January because I think $160 is a bit steep for a sweater dress.

One thing that I love about this dress is that it is just SO comfortable! It’s just a long sweatshirt made out of super soft and stretchy cotton. Most of the color options also have an adorable lace trim on the arm that makes the dress fairly breathable.

Another thing I love about this dress is how simple it is. While it does come in some of Lilly’s bold prints, it also comes in a lot of neutral colors like this navy and white stripe. This makes it super easy to style for every day and any season.

Because of how simple this dress is, you can easily dress it up or down. When I styled my outfit for this shoot, I paired the dress with lobster earrings from Baublebar (similar), a Kendra Scott necklace, and my Palm Beach Sandals (similar) for a more nautical look. When the weather starts to cool down, you could also pair this with booties.

Another great thing about this dress is that it has pockets! I will say, they aren’t very deep so they can’t hold much, but they work if you need to put your phone down for a minute or want to carry around a chapstick.

If you’re looking for a dress for fall, the Lilly Pulitzer Skipper Popover dress is what you need! It’s cute, comfortable, and practical. I hope y’all found this helpful and you feel inspired to pick one of these dresses up soon. I’m hoping it will be available later this month during the After Party Sale so I can grab another one.

Love from Mill Valley,

    YES! Love the stripe, thick crochet, lace combo. I hate the rule that you can’t wear white after Labor Day so I’m glad to see you’re making your own rules with this dress chica.
