Fall is SO LATE in coming to Chicago! It’s like the 5th straight day of 90 degree temps and I wouldn’t be sad about that except I have a closet full of fall clothes calling my name! Happily, one of those outfits was a perfect transitional outfit for this temperamental weather! Today’s plus size OOTD features this Ellos Side Knot Dress. It’s light and comfortable, but still has that fall flavor I’m craving!

Riders by Lee is hosting a Riders Style Challenge, and I’m one of the contestants! Go to their Facebook post and vote for me! You can help me win a prize, but you could also win a free pair of Riders by Lee jeans ($30 value!).

For this outfit, I wanted to be flirty and casual, so I paired the jeans with a pale pink “love” sweater, a black and white striped top and my fringe boots.
