There is nothing quite like the ease of a summer dress. By the time July rolls around stores are ushering out the summer styles and welcoming in new fall merchandise. However, the temperatures outside don’t quite cooperate with this strategy until mid-September. So what is a girl to do? Stop all of her shopping until the fall chill arrives in the air? Of course not. Now, is the time to take advantage of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and purchase a transitional dress. This sale slashes fall merchandise at up to 40% off and then increases the price again in early August. I spent hours in the fitting room sifting through their fall merchandise and selected all of my favorite transitional fall dresses. Meaning buy now, wear now annnnnnd wear later. Take a peak at my lookbook below. There are plenty of versatile options.
