As you know, I’ve been swept away by the amazing fall clothes coming up. However, it’s still August and it’s still hot, hot, hot. Whew! I’ve been having a bit of whiplash while getting ready in the morning because I need to wear my summer clothes, but I’m craving the fall color palette that I love so much. (Fall weather wouldn’t hurt either….)

This dress from the fall Nap Dress collection checks all my boxes right now. A lightweight dress that you can comfortably wear in 90 degree weather in a rich fall hue. The fact that I can also wear this with a little bit of a baby bump is just the cherry on top. I love that this is very much a “wear now and later” dress, too. I think it’d be so cute styled with a blazer or a denim jacket and sneakers when the weather cools off (if it cools off…).

I’ve already had fun experimenting with different accessories. I wore it with a pair of woven brown ballet flats the other day and loved the green and brown.

In terms of sizing, this Nap Dress fits a little more snug than previous ones I’ve owned. I think it’s because of the additional detailing on the smocking. I still got my normal Ellie Nap Dress size though (the rest of the dress feels the same size), just something to keep in mind if you prefer a more relaxed feel with the smocking.

I agree that this is a great transitional piece. I am curious about what outerwear you would style it with to make it warmer for the cooler fall days


I love this! Would you say the cotton is more similar to the green gingham or poplin?


I think poplin! It’s a little stiffer/crunchier. Not always my preference, however, with this smocking detailing, I think it makes the dress look a little more elevated as the skirt has a more defined structure, if that makes sense.
