Now and Later

I know it's still August but this seems to be around the time when everyone starts thinking about fall. From back to school to a new fall wardrobe, signs of fall are everywhere you look, whether you like it or not. I say this because the temperatures are still hot here (it's almost 100 degrees) and I'm going back to school this week, so thinking about fall is not my favorite thing at the moment. Well, one thing I do like about fall is that J. Crew is already rolling out new arrivals for the upcoming season and they're pretty great! What I specifically like about J. Crew's new arrivals is that they feature pieces that you can wear "now or later", as it says on their website. This gives you the option of buying pieces that are versatile and will work for both summer and fall or, as I like to call them, "transitional pieces". One such item is this stunning tiered dress in Ratti Grandi Fiori print.

Obviously, what I love most about this dress is the print! (By the way, this print also comes in a shirt version!) Yes, this print is another stunner from J. Crew and the colors are colorful enough for summer and yet still very appropriate for fall. I can definitely see how this dress could be worn now or later because you could just roll up the sleeves and pair the dress with a pop of color like my pink patent leather pumps or for fall you could throw on some black tights, boots and a denim jacket. I think the latter sounds pretty cute and I'll have to give it a try at some point once the temperatures cool down but here in Los Angeles that may not be for another few months!

  1. Still in the upper 90s here too! Sunshine is great but looking forward to a shift in the weather!

  2. That dress is just gorgeous! We are having warm weather here too so long sleeves are out. I cannot wait to have some cool fall weather!

  3. J.Crew is my number one shop stop for all things Fall. Their Fall collections are always on point and I LOVE their pre-fall collection from this year. Somebody better stop me or I'll spend a months wage in there, haha. I love this colorful dress on you and that location you shot at! It's so fun and colorful :) xo

  4. What a beautiful dress! I love the combination of the fun colourful print with the leopard print clutch. Thanks for linking up!
