As we quickly approach the end of August, it’s not too crazy to be thinking of the upcoming season change. It’s also has me thinking about what to keep out and what to pack away. This is our first time living somewhere where we’re not pulling out coats right away, but rather the opposite. Even though there’s not huge shift in wardrobe, I like the idea of slowly transitioning a color palette, moving into slightly deeper, moodier hues.
This lace blue mini dress was sort of an impulse buy that I was pleasantly surprised about when it arrived in the mail. At under $100, it has the cutest details, like the bows on the sleeves, a cut-out back and ruffled hem line. The blue shade is one that I love for fall. It’s not as bright or light as the blues I’ve worn this summer, it’s more of a lovely slate blue. I paired with pumps for work, but it also works with a pair of ballet flats to keep it a bit less dressed-up.
Earlier in the year, I got this Cuyana bag and it’s become one that I keep reaching for again and again (last seen here, here, here, here, here and here). It’s in between a nude, blush and tan color, making it easy to wear with most of my wardrobe. It’s also the perfect medium size, so it’s big enough for work, but not too big to tote around on the weekend. It’s definitely my favorite bag going into fall.
