Sequins and Sea Breezes: Olive Knotted

Olive Knotted

9/07/2016


Happy halfway through the week day! I am definitely digging this short week thing. It feels even shorter with my offsite meeting all day yesterday but I do have a lot of catching up to do for work since I've been out of the office for the past four days.  I know traditionally Labor Day kinda marks the end of summer and beginning of fall but it is definitely far from fall temperatures down here. We did get a taste of some slightly cooler weather for a day or two but it's easily back up in the upper 80's again so I'm still living in "summer" attire. 
However, this dress is definitely the perfect transition piece for summer to fall for me. It's casual, comfy and you can easily throw on a jean jacket and some booties to make it more "fall" appropriate. You're not going to believe where I got this cute, casual dress either... Abercrombie! Abercrombie is the one store in the mall (when I actually go to the mall) that I usually breeze right past, not paying it a bit of attention but lately they've been enticing me in with cute outfits in the window. That's exactly how I came across this dress! At first I wasn't sure how the knotted waist would look but it's more flattering than I thought it would be and I love the olive color. I kept it pretty casual with this look, pairing the dress with my Converse while I ran errands and did some shopping. What's your favorite summer to fall transitional piece?

  4. The dress is definitely flattering on you! I'm still living in dresses and skirts up here as it's back into the 90s this week after dipping into the 70's this past weekend. I like that the dress can easily transition into Fall temps too!
