One summer dress, styled two ways for fall

It’s almost that time that the weather starts to cool down and we can add some fun layers to our clothing. Today I’m teaming up with Nordstrom to share a pretty summer dress that you can wear now, but two ways to wear it into fall with just a few accessories.

Add a button down over the top for an easy layered look

A super easy way to switch up a summer dress is to layer a shirt over the top. You could do an oversized T-SHIRT with a knot on the side, or you could do A BUTTON DOWN with a tie in the middle.

I did the latter, and I love how easy breezy this looks as we head into fall. Add a pair of light colored ANKLE BOOTS and a fun HAIR ACCESSORY, and you’re ready for those last days of summer as we head into fall.

A denim jacket and felt hat are the perfect layers as we head into fall

It’s still too hot for most jackets, but a nice lightweight DENIM JACKET and a FELT HAT make the outfit feel less summer and more fall. But I still added some WHITE SANDALS to complete the look.

You could also do LOAFERS if you want it to feel a little more cool weather appropriate!


Did you know Nordstrom has a whole collection of brands focused on sustainable fashion?

One of my favorite brands at Nordstrom, Treasure & Bond, (where I got this dress) is very focused on sustainability, responsible production, and giving back. Did you know that? Nordstrom carries many other brands with sustainable fashion, including Patagonia, Reformation, Eileen Fisher, Toms, and Veja to name a few.

I’m so happy to support brands that are responsible and sustainable!
