Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine positively flew by – I was so busy it hardly felt as though I had two days off. A funny thing from this weekend – I decided to cook up a big pot of chili using ghost peppers for the first time. One of the websites I was reading suggested wearing gloves, goggles, and a mask while chopping, dicing and cooking these things, so I looked more like I was conducting a science experiment than cooking supper. I wish now we had taken photos to share. By the way, the chili was delicious.
This is another one of the recent boho dresses I have selected. I was attracted to the deep, rich fall colors and its pretty graphic print, especially around the hemline and sleeves. Speaking of sleeves I love the bell shape of these. Unfortunately, when this dress arrived it was a bit shorter than I felt comfortable wearing without something underneath. This is actually the second time I have worn this dress. The first time I wore it with a lace extender to make it long enough to wear as a dress. It was such an adorable look and I received so many compliments on it. I couldn’t take photos that day, but am hoping to have a chance to show it on here soon. Anyway, this time around I am wearing it with skinny black ankle pants and burgundy booties. I think these heeled booties give the whole look extra sass. I can also see wearing this tunic dress with leggings, skinny jeans, flares, vests, and belted.

So the next time a dress you love arrives and you find it is too short, think about ways you can make it work first before immediately sending it back. Do you have any other ways you have transformed a dress that’s too short?
Just a reminder – tomorrow it is time for this month’s Ageless Style Link-Up. I am really excited because this was my month to select our theme. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Please stop by and link-up.
