When thinking about ways to transition into fall {I know…I know…let’s not talk about it!}, I look to colors and textures. Navys and burgundies make me think of fall weather, but this dress is still a piece that’s perfect for late summer heat. The material is soft, slightly flowy, but as a plus for fall, it looks great paired with a denim jacket or a loose cardigan. Also, these woven espadrille wedges keep the outfit working for the current month of August. The taupey/beige color isn’t too bright and doesn’t scream summer, so I know I’ll be able to wear them for at least another couple of months/as long as possible!

This mint bag is a little unexpected color choice but I’m kind of loving it. What do you think? It’s not something I’d think would match, but it still compliments the rest of the outfit. At least I think so! Let me know in the comments below!

I hope you all are having a great week so far! I went to a really beautiful dinner with Mary Kay last night so that has been a highlight for sure! The event was held at the most beautiful location, the food was incredible, and the company was even better! Seeing my Mary Kay friends made me miss my trip to Dallas in spring {remember that ACM hair?!}. Hard to believe that trip was almost 4 months ago…yikes! Time flies!
