Needless to say, I love fall and I happen to especially love it in New York. The blue skies clashing with changing colors of the trees can make even the coldest of hearts feel warm with romance of this particular season. This is also a season when I usually go for retro aesthetic. Well... most of the time. (wink wink) However, I can't really deny the gloomy days either. It is a known fact that New Yorkers cherish every sunny day like it's their last. Which furthermore, proves my point that with the right transitional dress, no season can take you by surprise. Just like this fall-friendly Zara dress I bought a while ago. It is feminine, yet it doesn't look like you're trying too hard. On the super cold days, you can simply wear it with tights and boots and still make it work.
