This ruffle sleeve mini dress might be the cutest item in my closet! This summer I had a huge crush on anything with ruffle sleeves and even though the season has changed, my love for all things ruffles remains! The moment I spotted this ruffle sleeve mini dress, I knew it was the perfect little summer mini. I wore this quite a few times this summer, from a dinner date to a day on the lake (see how I styled it here) When I rotated my wardrobe from summer to fall (anybody else do this?), I had a hard time putting this one away. I decided to keep it out and bring it into the colder season with me!
This ruffle sleeve mini dress is the perfect neutral for layering! I paired it with a cozy plaid scarf in autumn tones ( only $26!) and my favorite (and most comfortable) heeled boots for a fall Saturday. As the weather gets colder, this mini dress will be perfect paired with some leggings! I actually plan on wearing this exact same outfit with leggings to work! It’s the perfect cute and casual outfit, but I love the fun touch the ruffle sleeves add! It’s official, this ruffle mini will be on repeat all year long!
I can’t believe it’s already mid-October! I feel like this month is flying by! October is one of my favorite months in the classroom as our class learns all about pumpkins. The past few years, we have even carved pumpkins in class, and despite the craziness that always ensues, I love watching my firsties with this hands on experience. Speaking of pumpkins, I have yet to make my way to the pumpkin patch this year and I hope to before the end of the month! Have you been to the pumpkin patch yet?
