The Perfect “Get Ready for Fall” Dress

Okay, we had like 3 cool days over the weekend and that immediately got me into “Fall is here!” mode. I’m off to buy a PSL (with almond milk), throw on a blanket scarf and call it a new season! 

A little dramatic? Yeah, definitely. But it still isn’t far from the truth!

We’re headed out for one last summer vacation at the end of this week, and I’m really excited for that. I’m also really excited to get back, get the boys back into school and move into fall with all it has to offer with cooler weather, my favorite holiday (Halloween!) and a few closet updates.

When I went to The Blog Societies conference a couple of weeks ago, I was starting to feel that blogger pressure of “it’s almost fall, you should dress like it!” combined with the idea of traveling to North Georgia with 90 degree temps and dressing for that. Fortunately, I found the perfect dress for the weather!

I bought this leopard print dress after seeing it on Instagram and thought it would be the perfect dress for transitioning between seasons. It’s great on its own, with whatever sandals you love and have been living in all summer. I could also see it with a leather jacket and flats as we get into mid-September and then belted and layered with a black turtleneck as we get into cooler temps. You all know I love a versatile piece and this is a great one to get you into fall.  

Since we’re talking about pieces you need for fall, is anyone missing a great denim jacket? The one I’m wearing in this post is from BURU and it is SO. GOOD. The ties at the cuffs add a fun detail and I love the idea of adding pins or patches for a little personalization. We met the gals from My Kind of Lovely at the conference, as well, and their denim jacket personalization activation was one of my favorites. 

I also got these Marc Fisher loafers at the conference and they’re great! They come in six different colors, but I was pretty excited about the mustard yellow. It’ll be great for game day with jeans and I just think this is the color I want to start wearing more of this fall. 

So, tell me. What items from your closet are you hoping to hold on to for just a little longer as we count down to fall?
