    Get it now...J.Crew sale

    Having trouble deciding what to wear during this awkward summer to fall transition? I think that this in-between season is the perfect time to start your layering, but with lighter pieces rather than heavier ones. I love to layer adorable dresses under long cardigans with a pair of flats, and when the weather gets colder I just add a pair of sheer tights and a lightweight scarf. If the weather gets warmer, just peel off the layers! I found a few great options at J.Crew's sale, and I'm bringing them here for all of you to pick and choose from. Here are my best finds:

    All available at

    1.) This dress is a throwback to the classy dresses in the 50's and 60's. The style is slightly more formal, while the material is very casual. Cotton Cady Claudine Tank Dress (in Classic Navy or Bright Berry) - $100
    2.) If you have the budget, I suggest splurging on this fantastic silver sequined cardigan. It's so versatile, it can dress up everything from jeans and a tee to a cocktail dress! Stardust Sequin Cardigan (in Light Pewter) - $140
    3.) Costume-like jewelry will be in full swing come fall, so this necklace is an easy way to start the transition ahead of the pack. Scattered Gold-Rimmed Bauble Necklace (in Yacht Green) - $50
    4.) Again, another splurging piece, but would fit so well into any woman's wardrobe. It looks great on all body types, and floral print is eternal. Giverny-Print Sydney Dress (in Rose Garden) - $180
    5.) What do you wear when it's pouring and you don't want to kill your lovely outfit with a heavy pair of Wellies (just let it be known, I have nothing against Wellies)? These are the answer: affordable and practical! Jelly Ballet Flats (in Black, or for a pop of colour, Bright Red) - $30
    6.) Just tuck in a brown tank tee and some long gold chains and you have a perfectly chic weekend outfit. Metallic Jacquard Skirt (in Hibiscus) - $80
    7.) & 8.) The ever-changing weather is just the excuse you need to get more in exercise time! Instead of dying out in the heat, why not join a pilates class? Remember: just cause you're exercising doesn't mean you have to look sloppy. Seamless Yoga Cami (in Black, or any other colour!) - $15; Luxe Knit Pant (in Spiced Wine) - $30
    9.) Forget sexy librarian style! Wearing the library is the new look. Library-Print Doll Dress (in Mahogany) - $80
    10.) The more muted the fall colours get, the more accessories you need! Hand-Painted Bold Zebra Bangle (in Black/Ivory or Slate) - $50
    11.) Ditch the plain white tee and wear this fall-friendly blouse instead. Whisper Lame Tank (in Dark Gold) - $30
    12.) Brown shoes are quickly becoming wardrobe staples along with black flats and simple heels. This are a classic but still creatively detailed option. Abbey Suede Ballet Flats (in Chocolate) - $90
    13.) The other flower-print dress to pricey? Here's an equally cute alternative. Brushstroke-Print Sydney Dress (in Royal Violet) - $90
