You guys, I finally found it! $12. The clearance rack in the Juniors' section at TJ Maxx. I almost screamed in the dressing room when it fit over my boobs. Now, I'm the proud owner of my very first maxi dress:
Dreams do come true. More than my discovery, I love when I find something new and take it home, only to find out it happens to match a bunch of my favorite things (cue my marigold sweater). Isn't that one of the greatest shopping feelings? Also, I want to marry this weather. It's like Massachusetts has one foot in autumn and one foot in summer. Although I'll always be up for basking in the heat like a reptile, I think this is my favorite time of year. Everything feels new and there's tons of stuff in the upcoming months I'm excited about: apple cider, Halloween decorations, pumpkin pie, waking up in warm blankets on a chilly morning, boots. I'm getting psyched just thinking about it.
Ladies, do you like the autumn? Tell me in the comments what you're most excited about wearing this fall! I'm thinking of putting together a Pinterest board for the season. Also - do you still shop in the Junior's section? Is there a cut-off age for things like that? I felt a little embarrassed and most of the stuff I found there didn't agree with my, ahem, womanly dimensions. I also felt like ducking down when an actual "junior" walked by. Oh, the shame.
