Sleeveless Sweater Dress for Fall Under $20

This post contains affiliate links.

Can you believe that tomorrow is the first day of fall?!  Kentucky hasn’t gotten the memo yet, because 80 degree temps are STILL in the forecast. Last year I was at the beach on the first day of fall.  This year I’m not.haha We are hoping to get in one last beach trip, but if we do, it will be super last minute.

Sweater Dress: Target–non-maternity under $20 // Necklace: c/o Sugarfix at Target (similar under $10) // Earrings: Kendra Scott (same stone) // Booties: Lucky Brand via DSW–$10 off w/ code SEPTEMBER2017 // Clutch: Gigi New York


How perfect is this sleeveless sweater dress for when you’re feeling fall but it’s still hot out? I love the deep burgundy/plum color. It’s a junior size, but fits a little big. When the weather turns cooler, you can pair it with a longline cardigan and tights for a cozy look! Right now, it’s 25% off with code XHILSAVE, making it less than $20! It also comes in white. Plus, it has lots of stretch, so it’s bump-friendly.


These booties have been on repeat.  The neutral color literally makes them go with everything. They look great with dresses, skirts, and jeans.  You can also snag them in olive and black. The heel height is very manageable.

I also love carrying this clutch.  Gigi New York pieces are a little bit of an investment, but the quality is fantastic.  I like to invest in pieces I can carry over and over again.  If you search “Gigi New York’ on my sidebar, you’ll see just how many ways I’ve styled this Stella Foldover Clutch.

Does it feel like fall yet in your neck of the woods?

    It is in the 80s in Michigan too but I wish our beaches were open still. I own almost an identical dress I purchased last year from Target. Love how you styled yours and swing dresses like this are perfect for baby bumps. Those booties are so cute and versatile!
