It’s September, past Labor Day, and the real question I want to ask is, are you ready to put away your summer clothes? Back when I was in school, yes even as far back as elementary school, the moment it became September, my mind was all about Fall. Thinking about when we can go apple picking, pumpkin patching, and what my Halloween costume should be. Of course, back then, the Summers seemed to be a lot longer. Nowadays, it feels like Summer just started a week ago haha…
Everything now seems to be all about Fall. Starbucks came out with their infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte (not really a fan, am I the only one? – too sweet! Although I do love Pumpkin Pie lattes – I discovered it at a local Chicago coffee shop.), and I can’t believe I’m already starting to see the leaves change! Whattt is this?!
Still Feels Like Summer
As I shared before, I’m such a summertime girl. I live for Chicago summers. Theeee best! Even though everything around me has basically turned Fall, I’m just not ready to put away my summer clothes. Why? Although we had days where it did feel like Fall, overall the temperatures still scream Summer weather. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think Fall has humidity in there too.
Want To Share This Dress
I’m sharing this because I still want to wear this cute mint dress and I want to share it with you all. At first, I wanted to make this mint dress look Fall-ish. I tried to accessorize with Fall colors (think burnt orange, rusty red, etc), and it just didn’t work. This dress has too much of a feminine look. So you know what? I’m gonna rock it! It may be September, but the weather still feels like Summer (hello 100% humidity) so I’m gonna wear it until the temperature drops. Definitely not ready to put away my summer clothes. What’s it like on your end? Have you put away your summer clothes because it’s the month Fall starts?
To clarify, I like Fall. I do like the crisp air. But Fall temperatures are rare these days. We get it for 2 weeks, and BAM it becomes Winter before Winter even officially starts.
Size Guide For The Dress
If you still want to rock summer clothes like I do, here’s the scoop on this dress. I’m wearing a size small so it fits true to size. The dress is lightweight but not at all see-through. I think it would be the cutest dress to wear as a wedding guest or if you have any showers (bridal or baby) coming up!
Stay tuned though, as I’m starting to prep for more Fall inspired looks!

Thank you Lee! Haha that’s my mindset too!
This dress is so cute! I totally agree that summer flew by, but I am ALL ABOUT fall!! It’s my favorite season! I’m also getting married in October so I’m a little biased towards autumn this year 😉
Thank you Mollie! Oo that is exciting!
Grace Sawford says
what a lovely dress it is!! and I still am hoping for summer to stay a lil longer since I really enjoy wearing lighter clothes. But Fall is just right around the corner and I am excited as well, especially the layering thing x
have a wonderful day!
Fall clothes is fun! Just not ready to put Summer away when it is still hot!

Love the color on the dress, such a gorgeous cut and style as well! https://mariannyc.com/2018/08/28/my-top-5-wellness-tips/
This dress would be adorable! When I’m not loving an outfit with “fall” pieces, I always just layer with a denim jacket – it does the trick! I am 100% over the hot, humid weather and am ready for 60-70 degree days, but not quite ready for it to be winter, just yet!
Oo that is a good idea! I feel the same exact way!
Gorgeous dress! I am so ready to put away my summer clothes, but the weather where I live is still too hot for that…
My exact thoughts Inna!
I don’t really “put away” outfits! I do a lot of layering and wear the pieces in my closet year round. The dress you have on would look great with boots and a leather jacket!

I always love your layering style!
What a cute dress!! I am ready for fall!! 😉
Not ready yet! I’m adding layers to mine because it’s getting cooler at night and it’s really cold during the morning. I love your dress and that bag!
Layers is so key!
I’m definitely not ready yet! I just live for dresses and they’re so comfortable to wear! Your dress is so effortless and pretty!
I live for them too! You always have the cutest dresses Tina!
This dress is so cute and I love the color on you!!! & love the headband!
cute & little
Thank you Kileen!

Summer days are the best!
Beautiful dress and great styling. I like the color of slides you paired with the dress. I had a similar reflection on my last Blog Post too. I live in Minnesota where we have long and cold winters and I can tell you I am not ready for Fall. I’m still hanging tightly unto Summer…:-)
Thank you! Glad you feel my pain haha!
I’m never ready to put away my summer clothes – especially when it’s still summer!
Love this dress on you, the color is so pretty!

Oh I bet! Hope you are staying cool Azanique!
I am most definitely NOT ready to put away my summer clothing. While I love fall, I LOATHE winter. I need it to stay warmer for a little while longer.
I totally agree Jessica!
