How To Wear Your Spring/Summer Dresses For Fall

Long Sleeve Floral Dress
*This posts contains affiliate links.

Just because summer has come to an end, doesn't mean you have to put away your favorite summer dress.  In fact, I love wearing said dress in the fall, because I get to style it in a completely different way!  Not to mention, it's ideal for those days when the temperature is cool in the morning, then can spike up to 80 degrees by mid day!

So how do you make a summer dress work for the fall? Here are three simple ways:

1. Pair your dress with boots.  The look of a bootie or over-the-knee boot can instantly give any outfit a fall feel.  It's an easy way to add a little fall into your step while the weather is still warm.  The dress I'm wearing happens to have long sleeves, so it's also ideal for a cooler day, but if your dress doesn't have sleeves (as most summer dresses don't), you can add layers, which brings me to step two.

2. Layer your dress with a cozy cardigan. Whether you choose an oversized knit or a cropped cardigan, both make the perfect layer during the fall.  I especially love the feminine feel an open knit cardigan can add to a floral dress.

3. Add a leather jacket or blazer. Leather jackets are great for adding warmth, and I love the bit of edge they add to a dress.  A blazer also pairs well if you're wanting your look to be a little more polished.  Also, as temperatures drop even cooler, add a pair of thick tights and a hat, and you're set for the winter!

Fall Home Decor

Happy Fall Y'all! 

I've said this once (okay more than once) and I'll say it again, fall is my favorite time of year!  Football games, cozy sweaters, apple picking, and pumpkin everything... I'm here for it.  I'm also here for all of the cute fall home decor.  I love decorating my home for the cooler season, and get overly excited for mini pumpkins and checkered pillows.  Unfortunately, this year I won't have a chance to decorate, but for a good reason.  I bought a new home!!  My family and I will be moving in just a few weeks, and are excited to start our new adventure in our new home! Since I've been packing up my current house, I won't be able to pull out my fall decor, and by the time I'm settled in the new house, it may be too late into the season.  However, that doesn't mean that I haven't been spending hours browsing fall decor to share with you!  Here are some fall items that I'm loving, and hoping to add to my new home soon!

I've categorized my decor picks by retailer (below), but unfortunately, some of the Target and Amazon items have already sold out.  I'm still linking them incase they come back in stock, but I've also linked some great, similar options.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8

 The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has is arrived!!  This is the one sale that allows you to purchase BRAND NEW fall merchandise at discounted prices!  Now, I know it may be hard to think about sweaters and booties when most of us are experiencing 100 degree temperatures, but I'm telling you, now is the time to stock up on the staples that you need for the fall.  In this post I'm sharing all the details you need to know about the sale, including how to shop, and rounding up my top sale picks by category.  My hope is to make this a one-stop sale destination in order to make your shopping experience simple and fun!  

What is the Anniversary Sale?

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale  (#Nsale) takes place every summer, where new fall arrivals are offered at discounted prices.  Unlike other sales, where the merchandise has been sitting on the sales floor (or available online) for a period of time, this sale includes all BRAND NEW merchandise!  Once the sale ends, the prices will go back up.  This sale is a favorite of mine because it includes many of the brands that I love.  Tory Burch, Barefoot Dreams, Free People, Stuart Weitzman, Frame, Spanx, and Theory to name a few.  Not only is it a great time to stock up on your fall wardrobe, but the sale includes accessories, beauty specials, and home decor. 

When Does It Take Place?

This years sale date is different from that of the past.  Due to Covid-19, Nordstrom started the anniversary sale this week, later than in the past, which personally, I am happy about!  While the preview catalog is open for everyone to view, only Icon and Ambassador level card holders currently have access to shop.

Influencer level cardholders can shop on August 10th, and all cardholders can shop on the 13th.  The sale opens to everyone (non card holders) on August 19th.  Have a Nordstrom card and not sure what level holder you are?  Log into your Nordstrom Account to find out!

The Nordstrom Sale is big and can be overwhelming, so plan ahead.  Take inventory of your fall wardrobe, and make a list of the items that you need.  If you're a shopaholic (like I am) stick to a budget, and try to shop only the items that are on your list, because trust me, it's easy to get distracted!  If there is something that you really want from the sale, purchase it right away, as sizes sell out fast.  Last year, I learned that a lot of items don't get restocked during the sale, so if there is something that you're loving, get it before it's gone!  I also suggest that if you're not sure on what size to get, order two different sizes.  Nordstrom has the best return policy, and makes the return process easy.  You can return in store, or send it back with free shipping!  And finally, make sure to use this post as a shopping resource. I've been searching high and low for items that I feel make great additions to everyone's fall wardrobe, and will be updating it throughout the sale.

Ready to Shop!

Below, you will find all of my top sale picks organized by category.  I narrowed it down to shoes, denim, sweaters, tops, and accessories.  Within the next week, I'll be adding active and lounge wear, outerwear, beauty, and home picks, so make sure to stop back!  Also, I've shared my personal wish list above.  Please feel free to message me if you have any questions about the items, or need help looking for anything specific!
