You guys, today is the first day of back to school for our kids – and we are celebrating! Okay, so we took them to school, walked them to class, and ordered our favorite biscuits and gravy to go so we could come home and sit at our desks and eat them.
But it’s quiet. We are both sitting at our desks working in the silence. No one wants a snack. No one wants to scream at anyone else. No one is bickering. No one is complaining about Google Home playing Frank Sinatra radio.
It’s a good day.
And it’s also the first official day of fall in my book. Since we’re Floridians and that season doesn’t exist, it starts for me officially officially on September 1, but unofficially on the first day of school. Which means it’s time to transition the summer wardrobe into a fall wardrobe. Basically, it’s time to add a little black to the mix.
So before I finish up a few deadlines and head off to yoga, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite ways to go from summer to faux fall in Florida – with the basic back tee shirt dress. It’s everything – and this one is from TJ Maxx ($9.99, seriously). I love the tick neck detail, and I’ve linked to a few of my other favorite casual LBDs to transition.
Wear them with flats, add a pair of wedges, some booties, or some riding boots and a scarf to give them a little edge. And know that if you have the kind of weather that allows you to wear boots and a scarf with your casual LBD without dying of heat stroke – I kind of hate you a little.
And not kind of.
This casual LBD is one of my favorites. It’s easy to wear both casually as well as a little dressed up (and it’s only $68!)
This casual LBD is perfect for casual outings and having a little fun.
This casual LBD has the most fun flutter sleeves if you want something a little extra.
