Polka Dot Dress from Downtown Allie

I have such a difficult time finding dresses in cooler months. Everything seems to be short sleeve, short hemmed, or super thin. If that’s the position you’re in, I have a solution for you: this adorable polka dot dress from Downtown Allie.

Polka dots are one print that will never go out of style, so this is a timeless piece to add to your closet.

Additionally, the drop waist and buttons are fun detail that make this dress a little more eye-catching.

This is something that would be perfect for church, date night, errands, or even school.

Dressy

This is one of those dresses that doesn’t require a lot of accessories, so it’s easy to throw on and go. While I do like the length for professional purposes, adding a tall boot is going to make your legs look shorter, so I prefer booties to elongate my legs.

Casual

Y’all know how I feel about a good denim jacket. Throw it over the dress for a more casual look. I also like adding sneakers and love how they dress this dress down. See what I did there? Ha ha!

Don’t forget how important it is to shop from small businesses this year. I know Allie would really appreciate your support!

Also, let me know which look is your favorite: dressy or casual?

The Sweater of My Dreams

Hey, everyone! I hope you’re doing well and enjoying the hint of fall that’s in the air. I know I am!

The cooler temps this week have gotten me in the fall mood. My official coffee creamer is now pumpkin spice, and I’ve started stocking up on sweaters.

I recently picked up this bubble sleeve, peplum sweater from Downtown Allie. The details are darling and the color is very versatile.

This is the type of sweater you want in your closet because it can be worn with colored pants for school teachers, pencil skirts for those with a professional work environment, or with blue jeans for date night. Check out my Instagram to see how I styled it for each occasion.

Downtown Allie also has tons of other cute sweaters, so I encourage you to check her site out. You can use the code SARAH15 at checkout to get 15% off your purchase.

Leopard Set from Downtown Allie + Discount Code

Happy Labor Day weekend! I hope you’re getting a chance to relax and spend time with your family.

Today I want to talk to you about one of my favorite local boutiques: Downtown Allie.

Allie and I graduated high school together, so I’ve known her for a long time. She has the sweetest soul, and her shop is so cute.

Each week, she receives new arrivals and does a Facebook Live, showing those items. This allows potential customers to check out her stock, so they have an idea of what’s coming to her store and website.

Another thing I admire about Allie is that she’s a hustler and pursued her dream of opening a store. She started by selling clothes out of the trunk of her vehicle and with the support of customers, now has a successful storefront and website.

I recently picked up this leopard set, and it is so comfortable! One thing I like about sets is that you can mix and match the pieces with other items in your closet. Also, if leopard sets aren’t your thing, here are a few more leopard items in her shop.

It’s so important to support small businesses like Downtown Allie because it takes support to remain open, especially in a small town like ours. If you’d like to check out her site, or visit her store, you can use the code SARAH15 to get 15% off your purchase.

Happy shopping!
