The summer to fall transition months are always hard to get dressed for. It’s chilly in the morning but hot in the afternoons and even though I don’t mind carrying a sweater around with me (I feel like wearing a sweatshirt around your waist and shoulders is in right now even if the weather doesn’t require it), I’d rather just wear an outfit that works for any weather. For me, that’s a midi dress. The length you a little extra warmth against the morning chill and a short sleeve or sleeveless option will help keep you stay cool once the temperature starts warming up.
One of the dresses I’ve been wearing on repeat for a few weeks now is this polka dot beauty from H&M. I had gone back and forth on whether or not I wanted to order it for far longer than I wish to admit (and I missed out on precious time wearing it!) but finally pulled the trigger after trying it on in-store last month. Let me tell you! It’s better than I would have ever imagined.
Since this polka dot beauty has a lot going on between the print and the sleeve detailing, I like to keep it as simple as possible with accessories (surprise surprise).
Over the summer I was introduced to the brand KAYU (remember this bag that I *basically* wore all summer?) and they recently launched a collection of sandals and oh my god – they’re amazing. The leather is so soft and requires zero breaking in, which is amazing. The black Athena sandal is the perfect sandal to pair with my polka dot dress – they’re fun, but simple. I’m also obsessing over my KAYU clutch! I’m not usually one for small bags but this one is so great for date night, weddings, and lunch. It has a small pocket inside, has a pretty gold crossbody strap, and fits my iPhone 12 Pro Max so it’s a yes for me!
