Saying goodbye to summer is likely the last thing you want to think about…unless you’re like me and are obsessed with all things fall. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll definitely miss the sunshine and heat, and being able to wear shorts and dresses all the time, but fall is really everything I could ever want in a season – warm sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes, crisp leaves on the ground, being able to go for a run outside with a nice breeze in the air, ahhh I can feel it already! And although there are definitely certain clothing pieces that are meant for each season, at the times of year when we’re moving from one season to the next, it’s important to find pieces that you can wear as the temperature transitions.
In my eyes, an olive coloured dress is the perfect summer to fall transition piece. I got this one from Top Shop while I was in NYC this summer and was immediately drawn to the way it drapes and falls on the body as well as its sheer sleeves. It’s a perfect summer date dress (I wore it to winery tours and dinner at Niagara on the Lake) and for fall I can’t wait to wear it with booties and a big, warm cardigan. The colour works for both seasons, yet I love how the dress itself works differently for each (for the summer more dressy and for the fall more casual and layered).
