Even though I have been slowly transitioning into fall, the truth is our days have still been pretty hot. Around this time of year, I feel like I am a walking contradiction because I am craving cozy knit sweaters, lots of neutrals, and layers but I still gravitate towards the simplicity of a dress. When I wear a dress with booties, though, I can have the best of both worlds…it’s a little bit summer and a little bit fall. I threw on this polka dot chambray dress for a casual and very rare date night with my husband. Dining al fresco is one of our favorite things to do when it’s warm, so eating delicious Italian food and sipping on red wine on the patio made for a perfect evening.
I bought this Street Level vegan tote at the Nordstrom anniversary sale and have been using it nonstop. It easily fits all of my essentials and the outer pocket is perfect for holding my phone and lipgloss so I don’t have to go digging for them. Unfortunately, this bag sold out before the sale was even over, but I did find a similar Street Level bag, which I linked above.
