Happy Thursday! I know just yesterday I shared some summer to fall outfit inspiration and you may be confused as to why I am wearing my favorite summer dress in today's post. But, as I mentioned yesterday, it is SO hot here. It feels more like summer this week than it has all of summer! And since it is the last full week of summer, I had to wear my favorite summer dress one last time. You may remember a post with this dress when we were vacationing in Napa {here} and how much I love it's versatility. It has been by far by favorite dress for the past two summers!

A great way to extend the wear of a dress or wear it in a different way is converting it to a skirt. This dress pairs perfectly with chambray and it gives you a totally different look out of the same dress! I have worn this countless of times this summer, typically with a denim jacket, so it was nice to change it up and wear it with the chambray one last time before fall. 

Although this summer dress is sold out, I am still loving floral for fall! I've included some of my favorite floral pieces that can be added to your closet now and worn throughout autumn, including this dress that's currently on sale!

Have a great long weekend everyone!

P.S. Don't forget that the Nordstrom End-of-Summer Clearance Sale is currently going on. You can save up to 40% now through September 13th! Happy shopping!
