Fall on my Mind

Dress: Anthropologie

Now that we’re into the second week of August, it’s time to start thinking of all the end-of-Summer activities:the Iowa State Fair, the start of the school year, a certain baby girl’s 1st birthday, and of course, cooler Fall temps, rich colors and glorious fashion!  Fall is my favorite time of year, and that includes all the cozy Fall styles!

Today I’m wearing one of the new Fall arrivals at Anthropologie.  We’ve all been losing our minds over the Nordstrom sale (rightfully so – it definitely lived up to the hype) so it’s nice to remember that there are other stores out there who are debuting some truly lovely Fall pieces.  I fell in love with the rich burgundy color of this dress, and the lace sleeves were icing on the cake.  The length is so classy – perfect for date night, wedding guest, or even dressed down for a daytime farmer’s market or night time bonfire.

Since we’re in the awkward transition time where the weather says Summer, but we’re dying to break out the Fall wardrobe, I wore this dress by itself with strappy heels today, but also plan on pairing it with cute ankle boots (favorites: these and these) and a cardigan like this one once the temps dip a little lower.

Looking forward to all the new Fall arrivals and fun activities that come with my favorite season!

xoxo,

Not sure how I feel about the hat – it’s a few years old, and I’ve never worn it!  This one is super cute though!
