Summer isn’t nearly over, but you wouldn’t know that by walking into any clothing store or browsing online this time of year. August is that amazing time of year where you’re still sweating your ass off but stores are like “hey girl – fall is coming and we got you.” It’s also the strangest time of year to be a fashion blogger because you want to start shooting fall outfits but you’re really just trying to hide the sweat that is literally pooling in your ankle boots.
All this to say – I have some great fall stuff coming for ya but I’m pretty sure my body would physically reject a sweater right now. So today I am sharing with you 5 super cute summer dresses that you can still wear into fall when we reach that not-quite-hot-not-quite-cold weather. See the bottom of this post for more dresses and a Nordstrom giveaway!
First up is this pretty little Flynn Skye number. You guys have heard me talk about Flynn Skye on the blog before – Amber Farr is the designer and I have loved her California style since I first discovered her line back in 2012. I also love that all of her pieces are ethically made in Downtown LA and she cares about the people who make her clothes. It’s kinda hard to find lines like that these days! Most people just have everything cheaply made overseas. Read more about Flynn Skye here.
Anyway – I purchased this dress recently and have already worn it on several occasions. It looks as great with wedges as it does with boots, which means I can wear this in the fall no problem. I’m thinking I would pair it with this jacket (on sale) and these boots until it gets too cold to show bare legs and then maybe I would layer it over black jeans like these (also on sale).
This same dress is on sale in a different print right now too.
If this Flynn Skye dress isn’t really your thing, I chose 4 more options below that would work great for summer and fall. After all, don’t you want to wear your clothes for more than just one season??
Hope you guys are having a great week so far! We are busy busy gearing up for BrunchFest on August 27th (you can save $10 on tickets with code MYBORINGBRUNCH) and we’re looking for a new rental home. It’s tough out there – I mean, I know the housing market is crazy but that means there are so few rentals too and all of them are old and tiny. I don’t get how people lived in such small spaces back in the early 1900s. Were they all 5 feet tall? Did they have no need for personal space? Did they love having their spouse and kids crammed in one tiny room? Did they share a queen size bed? Did they all go insane?
So many questions.
Anyway – your chance to win a $700 gift card to Nordstrom in the final days of the anniversary sale is below! Good luck!
