An Easy Transitional Look

The transitional period between summer and fall is one of the most difficult to dress for here in New England. Autumn officially kicks off this Thursday, but we are still having temperatures in the mid-eighties. The mornings are chilly, but by the afternoon you are sweating. This dress is the perfect compromise. The long sleeves give you a little more coverage but the fabric is still light and breathable. There's a few solid versions of this dress (I'm also in love with this black one), as well as some with short sleeves, but I couldn't resist the combination of stripes and ruffles. It's also worth mentioning that these flats come in a whole bunch of colors. The bow lets you to adjust the fit and the leather is super soft. This allows the shoes to perfectly mold to your foot, and ultimately you end up with an extremely comfortable pair of flats. I hope you all have a wonderful week! 

What I'm Wearing: 

Dress: Clu | Flats: Corso Como c/o | Clutch: Pomegranate c/o (On sale!) | Sunglasses: Loft (old) | Bracelets: Allison Cole Jewelry c/o + Loren Hope
