polka dot maxi dress

Is this not the most perfect fall maxi dress? I love the camel-colored dots mixed into the classic black and white polka dot print. I found this fall maxi dress to run pretty true to size and it surprisingly wasn’t too long for my 5’2 frame which is uncommon for me when it comes to maxi dresses! I usually have to hem maxi dresses or order petite sizing when available but this one worked. I linked to some other great plus size polka dot maxi dresses (up to size 26/4X) in the slideshow below as well.

I decided to for a more matchy-matchy vibe for the accessories. I don’t often match my bag to my shoes but I was clearly feeling the camel vibes. 🙂

Also, as we are approaching Halloween and this post is filled with pumpkins, let’s chat about the upcoming holiday for just a second. I’ve never actually celebrated Halloween because I grew up ultra-orthodox (a lot of you were surprised with that one!) but if you are celebrating here are some thoughts from this Jewish gal:

Let yourself eat the candy if it sounds good to you. Let your kids eat the candy if it sounds good to them. Because the surest way to feel out of control around food is by restricting yourself of that food.

It’s also so important to remember that food is SO much more than the nutrients they provide. It’s also about heritage, pleasure, tradition, connection and more. I hope you allow yourself full permission to eat the foods you love, this week and always.
