When you live in the south, the beginning of fall is still 90 degrees. The best way to beat the heat but still dress for the new season is layers! The go-to transitional pieces for me have been dresses like this. I styled it 3 ways, perfect for everyday-wear to going out.

The first way is easy to wear to work or out and about. Some fun flats and jewelry make it more than just a staple dress.

These are all Vestique pieces actually. I got them over time, but they are some of my favorites.

This set is easy to start the cooler mornings off that turn into toasty days. Layer up! The booties make it fun for fall and you can just take off the jacket later in the day.

This ones my favorite. I’ve been looking for a good black leather jacket for a while and scored this one on clearance at Marshalls for $44 just recently. If you haven’t been by there this season, all the fall stuff is out and theres a ton of great finds! This combo is perfect for chillier nights. Just throw on some heeled booties and this dress gets you ready for a night out!
