I've decided over the last few weeks that dresses are the way to go when transitioning from summer to fall. Sure, you can easily layer lightweight sweaters or jackets, but dresses just seem so much easier, don't they?
Late fall/early summer is the perfect time to really get a lot of wear out of those lightweight dresses hanging in your closet. Theylook great with your favorite pair of sandals but look equally as chic with your favorite booties and cardigan or jacket.
This Old Navy dress is one of those perfect transition dresses. Although it's long sleeve, it's lightweight enough to wear on those kind of hot days. I particularly loved pairing it with my favorite loafers from last year. Once the weather cools down, the dress would also look great with a pair of black tights and black ankle booties.
I had every intention of wearing this dress when I was NYC over the weekend for some NYFW events, but it didn't make it off the hanger. I wore a new pair of sneakers for part of the first day that just tore up my feet! I had so many blisters that were in all the wrong spots to wear the loafers I had packed to wear with the dress. Plus there was a breeze here and there-I didn't want to have to worry about the dress flying up! Nope!
