Back when I was just a wee Huntress, I used to have a book called “All for Fall.” I’m pretty sure the book was about jumping in leaves and generally enjoying fall. Maybe that’s where my love of all things fall began. Either way, I am definitely all for fall as an adult: fall colors, throwing leaves, wearing tights, you name it, I’m all about it. This is my all for fall look…welcome, Autumn. I missed you, girl.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I was a little on the fence about a short sleeve sweater dress, but I ended up really liking it! It’s especially perfect for a fall-ish/summer-ish day. And, of course, I can easily add a long sleeve tee-shirt underneath to add more warmth in winter. So if you’re on the fence about short sleeve sweater dresses, fear not, they are a definite go for fall and winter. I think this one is a little on the short side, so I wore completely opaque tights to ensure looking work appropriate.
2) I found this dress on my first visit to Savers and let me tell you, readers. I. Am. A. Fan. They have a very interesting business model that helps support local non-profit agencies. The Savers in my area support the Epilepsy Foundation. Super cool. From what I gather, Savers is essentially a for-profit discount chain that provides local charities with financial support for bringing in clothes, regardless of whether or not Savers ends up selling the clothes in their store. The prices are just slightly higher than at Goodwill (approx $5-$6 for a top versus $3-$4). If you donate there, I’ve been told that they will give you a 20% off coupon for your next visit. I definitely found myself digging quite a bit, but the stores are very spacious and well lit. There are even big changing rooms, carts, and baskets. If you have 30-60 minutes, I definitely recommend trying out a Savers near you. You can read more about them here: http://www.savers.com/
