I know it looks like we took these photos in the middle of fall rather than the end of summer – but we stumbled upon this park nearby my house where the grounds were covered in leaves! Granted most of the surrounding trees were still green and lush, but it was definitely a premonition of what’s to come. I think I go back and forth daily at this point about being excited for fall and still enjoying summer. It was rainy and quite cold this past weekend so that made me jump back over to the summer loving bandwagon for the moment. Ha! I feel like maxi dresses, though they are specifically seen as a summer clothing item are great transitional pieces into the cooler weather. And since this one has slightly longer sleeves, it makes it perfect. I was clearly loving maxi dresses for fall last year as well – remember this post? I think it’s my way of hanging on to wearing dresses for as long as I can before having to fully transition over to jeans and leggings. #nopantsarethebestpants¬†
