Polka Dot

I can’t believe that I’m about to say this, but, I think I am ready for fall to make its arrival! I’m one of those people that is always anxious for the next season (anyone else like this?) Between this week being even hotter than most and the arrival of Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Latte on Monday (8/25!) I am ready for cooler temperatures.
To prepare for fall temperatures (that will not likely hit North Carolina until October….) I have been trying to find ways to transition my summer pieces into fall. While I still can’t fathom wearing jeans during the day, they are a great alternative to skirts and shorts as the night time temperatures cool down a bit. I can still wear my favorite summer tops and blouses and even pair them with a blazer or cardigan if things get even more chilly. And let’s be honest here, I’m cold 24/7, so I think I’ll be pulling out the jeans, blazers, and cardigans sooner rather than later! 
I have worn this polka dot top many times this summer. It’s such a classic closet staple and for $29 it can’t be beat! The past few months I have paired it with shorts and skirts, but will now start pairing it with my favorite denim and blazers so that I can get even more wear out of it!

  7. What a great top! And I'm ready for fall too. I hardly brought any summer clothes back to school, which is bad because it's still humid outside!

  8. Such a cute outfit! I'm ready for fall already – but not winter which I feel like will be here sooner rather than later.

  9. I have been looking for shoes just like that, then when I saw from the side they were wedges, I just about screamed! They are definitely making their way to my closet! Thanks for sharing!
