Florals for Fall
I am a firm believer that florals are not strictly a spring/summer print, but can be worn any time of year. The only other print I like as well as florals is polka dots.
So, to say that I am in love with this dress would be an understatement! I have never in my life seen a dress that combined a floral print with polka dots and looked this awesome. I also love the length of this dress, it hits just below the knee..which is perfect for a fall day that is too warm for tights! (Seriously fall weather, where are you?) I also have to say that I love the volume this dress has…it makes it so fun to twirl in! (My shoes are not so good for twirling, however! Haha.) The only downside to this dress is, I have to wear a strapless bra with it. Haha. (When are they going to invent a comfortable strapless bra?)
This lovely dress came from an Australian friend of mine, who sent me this dress from her store, Lilee Fashion. She also has an eBay store (if you don’t happen to live in Australia) under the name Lilac Cove Boutique! She has so many fun, vintage-inspired dresses in her store – and they’re all very reasonably priced! Just be aware that these dresses are all in Australian sizes, so be sure to figure out what your Australian size is before placing an order. 🙂
This sheer, polka dot neckline was perfect for my sparkly, new Rocksbox necklace. I loved that I was finally able to break this necklace out! If you missed my post on what Rocksbox is all about, just click here. (And be sure to use code: haveclotheswilltravelxoxo for a free month of jewelry!)

The dress is just lovely!!
I want to wear florals all year round as well, but I find that it’s hard to style during autumn and winter. But this beautiful outfit has definitely inspired me to try florals for winter! I’ll see what I can come up with, hehe 😛
The necklace is beautiful and the whole outfit is flawless, you look amazing!
Aw thank you so much, Mona! I feel like styling darker colored florals is a bit easier in the cooler months. And tights fix everything, haha. 🙂
You look so gorgeous in this polka dot floral print dress Lindsey! I love prints that are feminine. I love, love florals! I also like polka dots paired with stripes. I like some ethereal prints and python or animal prints too:) Prints are always fun and definitely show your personality.
Aw thank you so much, Joanna! You are too sweet! And oooh yes polka dots and stripes is adorable too! And python and animal prints are so fun too! 🙂
I love this look! And I wear florals all year too. They’re great and so fun!

Thank you so much, Mallory! And yay for another floral lover! 🙂
I also believe that you can wear floral year round! What a dress. I love the neckline!
Wahoo – I’m not alone! And thank you so much! 🙂
Sooooo lovely! I sometimes can’t get over that you live in a hotel with a limited wardrobe…you’re like a magician or wizard bc your closet always seems so big! Bravo, haha. And I hear you on strapless bras; I have to wear mine a size too small otherwise it slips right down ugh. XO
Thank you, Lauren! Haha…fortunately for my current living situation I have two normal sized closets. However, they are both very full, and my husband is constantly reminding me that my clothing inventory needs to be downsized before out next move this winter. Haha. So, there may be a Have Clothes, Will Travel garage sale coming up here. 😉 And strapless bras are the worst – I will go out of my way to not buy strapless dresses or tops so I don’t have to wear one. But this dress was just too pretty not to wear for that reason! 🙂
Beautiful dress! So romantic! It has been a strange fall here too! 🙂
Thank you so much, Laurie! Hope you’re enjoying the weirdly warm weather! 🙂
I love outfits that play with sheer layers! This dress is brilliant, and you look marvelous in it 🙂
Aw thank you so much my dear! And I agree, I can’t get enough of dresses and skirts that have a sheer layer…they’re fun to wear and fun to photograph (especially if you have the right lighting..I feel like I cheated this dress a bit, as the light was a bit harsh at this time of day). 🙂
That dress is so very pretty! I love the retro feel and the beautiful dark florals. These shoes too!! Oh my goodness, i’m in love!
Thank you, Amanda! I love it! And these shoes are quickly becoming my favorites…they are SO tall, but they’re surprisingly quite comfortable, as far as heels go. And they go with so many outfits! 🙂
This dress is so nice!!! Florals and polka dots are definitely favorite prints of mine as well. But I might like stripes more…. tough call! And i’m with you – where in the world is the fall weather??

Thank you so much, Lee! And ooh, stripes are super cute too. I do not own nearly enough stripes! And oh I am so ready for some below freezing weather haha. I’m really missing cold weather!
