If I was going “back to school” I’d maybe wear this. It’s a nod to fall, hello collared button up, but it’s definitely reminiscent of summer with a literal summer dress in a sherbet hue. To me August is still VERY much summer, and for a society who loves to drone on and on about the heat and humidity August brings, it’s very surprising that we’re already downloading fall looks, and shoving hot drinks in our hands.

I mean, I am excited about my fall edit list, which will be coming soon, and I am ready to stock up and ship out pieces in my wardrobe, but, at the end of the day, to have a wardrobe that holds pieces that can pass for every season is really the goal.

Because we all know fall fashion is just a fancy way of saying: Layering.
