As much as I would love to share some cute fall outfits, it’s just too hot for me to even think about jeans, leggings, sweaters or even flats. Today I am reminded with this heat we are having out here in southern California that really our hottest months are September and October!!
Some days even shorts in the hot weather aren’t comfortable. Dresses are really the best option plus I have found as I have gotten older that I don’t always feel comfortable going out in about in shorts unless it’s just running some quick errands or super casual thing. It’s that balance of dressing age appropriate yet styling.
I bought this dress last spring from Nordstrom’s and it is one of my favorites and the best news it comes in lots of colors and there is a long sleeve version for fall/winter which I am totally ordering!
It’s super affordable, comfortable, flattering and it can be dressy or casual. My idea of a great find is the versatility! I had to take my youngest to a confirmation interview yesterday afternoon – shorts didn’t seem like the right choice and it was way too hot for any type of jeans! This was perfect especially as there was no A/C!
Side-note: We live near the beach and it’s not that unusual for many to not have air-conditioning. Our average temperature is probably 70 and we really only get a couple of super hot weeks a year.

Even on hot days I always have a sweater, sweatshirt or jacket with me because you never know when you are going to end up in a place with the A/C blasting! My husband makes fun of me but I say I am always prepared! Plus throwing on a denim jacket or cardigan makes this dress a great transition piece when the weather gets cooler!
The day ended up with wine and take out by the pool . . . the perfect date night on a hot summer night!
