I take it everyone had a good Labor Day weekend?! Mine consisted of Grey’s, more Grey’s, trying out a new restaurant, a little shopping, a fun girls night, and some pool time. Sadly, we had to cancel yesterday’s beach trip because it was calling for rain… all day. I was sad I couldn’t squeeze in one more beach day but at least I was productive yesterday and have a short work week to look forward to 🙂
This weekend, I picked up this fun little floral dress from Nordstrom. Shout out to the juniors section! The floral pattern caught my eye and I thought it would be the perfect easy dress for fall. It’s lightweight, flowy, and you can dress it up or dress it down. Note: Yes, I was sweating during some of these photos and it started drizzling so my hair suddenly turned to frizz BUT the good news is that we got out of there before the torrential downpour! Things could have gone south verryy quickly. Anyways, let’s take a look and see how to wear this dress two ways.
I actually wore this look to meet some girlfriends for dinner this weekend. I think all my people in the south can agree that we’re in that weird time period when we’re over our summer clothes, but can’t bust out the sweaters quite yet. Cue the transitional pieces! I paired this dress with my go-to leopard clutch (pattern mixing for the win!) and finally busted out my new pointy suede heels. Y’all… they are seriously so comfortable. They have a slightly smaller heel (3″) and a pretty amazing footbed. I feel like I could walk in them for hours!
We’re talking transition so of course that means layering! Ps. This is when things were starting to get a little toasty haha. When the temps start to get a little cooler, this dress will be perfect underneath a boyfriend cardigan and a colorful scarf. Instead of heels, you can go with a riding boot (and tights when it gets really chilly). You could also opt for a crossbody bag instead of a clutch which dresses down the outfit, making it more cozy casual. I’m loving the fall florals and this dress will be on some serious repeat this season 🙂
Am I the only one who struggles with what to wear during these weird weather times? What are your favorite transitional pieces? It has been in the high 80s here during the day and I am so ready for the low 70s… who’s with me?
