That awkward time between summer and fall presents quite a predicament if you live anywhere in the south where it stays hot well into October. As sweaters, jackets and boots hit the shelves, we can barely stand to put on a pair of jeans down here. So either I’m stuck in my summer wardrobe for another month or so (see Exhibit A, pictured) or I have to find a few go-to, transitional pieces that say “I know it’s fall, y’all,” but still keep me feeling cool in the heat.
I actually got this dress to wear to a few end-of-summer events, including a wedding shower for my best friend and my niece’s first birthday. Since I just got it, I plan to wear it a few more times before fall fully sets in and I have to stow it away until next season. I’ll make it look a little less summery by draping a denim or suede jacket over it.
