The Best End Of Summer Dress & Labor Day Sales

Button Front Dress

Happy Labor Day weekend! Although I'm sad to see summer come to an end, I do have to admit that fall is my favorite season, and I love dressing for the transitional weather!  It makes me so happy when it's still warm enough in the daytime to wear my favorite dress or denim shorts, then as the night cools off, I can throw on a cozy sweater and a cute pair of booties.  It's like getting the best of both seasons at once!  

Speaking of transitional weather, this Button Front Dress happens to be the perfect dress for this time of year! Although it is technically a summer dress, the material is on the heavier side (I love that it's not thin and flimsy!) which made it too hot for me to wear in the dead of summer.  Now that the weather has started to cool down, this dress is ideal for these 70 degree days.  The slightly longer sleeves and midi length also make it perfect for entering into the fall.  I can wear it now with my sandals, then as the weather cools off even more, I'll add a pair of booties and a leather jacket for a cute fall look!

Wishing you all a great weekend, and start to the fall!  We'll be enjoying one last weekend at the lake, then the twins start kindergarten!  I still can't believe it!  Whether you're hanging home, or squeezing in one last beach weekend, make sure to check out the Labor Day Sales that are happening!  I rounded up my top sale picks below, and all my picks are items that are perfect for entering the fall!

Rompin' Around

Women's Romper

We may be nearing the end of August, but that doesn't mean that the temperatures have started cooling off.  In fact, here in New England we see some of our hottest days in early September.  Which makes this romper the perfect piece to wear now, and into the fall!  I love wearing rompers in the summer as they make getting dressed fuss free, plus the material of this romper is lightweight, making it ideal for a hot day.  Then as the weather cools off, you can layer on a cardigan, and add a pair of booties for a cute fall transition look.  Also, can we talk about how adorable this romper is?  I love the flutter sleeves and the button detailing, which are also functional.  If green isn't your color, it also comes in a deep red (a great color for early fall) which is currently on sale!

Easy Fall Transition

*This post contains affiliate links.

Happy Friday my friends, and happy August.  Can you believe that we're in our last month of summer? Although I'm no where near ready to put away my sundresses and denim cut offs, it's this time of year that I like to start adding warmer items into my wardrobe, that will make the transition into fall easy.  With the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale coming to end on Sunday (8/4), now is you last chance to stock up on some great fall pieces.  A cozy cardigan and a new pair of boots are always on the top of my shopping list from the sale, and this year I found two great options!

This Barefoot Dream Cardigan is one that has been included in the sale for a couple of years now, and it's well, a dream!  Not only is it the softest cardigan that I own, but it's one that I know I'll be wearing for years.  It looks great paired with jeans or casual dresses, but I'll also be wearing it with my pj's, as it feels like wearing a blanket.   My other cardigan pick from the sale is this Open Cardigan by BP.  Although sizes are only available in the Brown Cattail, I think the color is gorgeous and perfect for the fall! 

These boots are by far my favorite purchase this year.  Although they weren't initially on my radar when shopping the sale, I was in need of a new tall boot, and they caught my eye while walking by them in the store.  Not only are they comfortable (seriously I can stand in these all day long) but they are the perfect heel height, and I love the pointed toe.  I know the sizes are limited in the color that I am wearing (Praline Suede) but they come in black, and are fully stocked!

Booties also make a great item for transitioning into the fall, and this peep toe pair is one that you can wear now, and far into the fall.  I'm also loving this perforated pair here.

Camisoles are the perfect piece for transitioning into the fall, and I make sure to add a new one to my wardrobe every year.  They are great to wear on a hot day, and when the weather cools off, I love layering them under cardigans, blazers, and leather jackets.  This one by BP. is unfortunately sold out, but I love this lace trim one, and will be getting it in a couple of colors for myself!

What items do you love to wear for transitioning into the fall?
