Happy Monday, ladies! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Although I'm still in Charlestone until Wednesday, temps are blazing down here in the South. We're looking at the high 90s in Athens for the next week. Yikes. But this heatwave got me thinking about essential transitional clothing.
We usually talk about transitional clothing across season changes. But whether we're going from inside to out or heading out for dinner after a day in the office, Summer days themselves can be challenging to dress for. So, today, I'm featuring some of my favorite transition clothing: a blazer and a dress.
A transition from a day at the office to dinner with friends or your main squeeze doesn’t have to be complicated if you incorporate a blazer or a dress. Today, I'm showing you the perfect Summer transitional outfit.
Today's featured items are a blazer and dress from Ann Taylor
The items are modeled, and I pulled together 2 alternates

I pulled together 5 of my favorite blazers at the end of the post, so make sure to check them out!
My long-time followers know my absolute commitment to blazers. At my core, I'm a classic prepster, and a blazer is always part of my style uniform. They work all year round and can be paired with just about anything: dresses, pants, jeans, skirts, and yes, even shorts.
How adorable is this gingham sheath dress from Ann Taylor? Pair it with a blazer for a put-together office look and then simply drop the jacket and swap your accessories for a more casual evening look. (Plus, does anything say "Summer" more than gingham?)
Loving this dress because of its formal-to-casual flexibility. If you want an even more casual outfit idea, make sure to check out the alternate stylings today. How cute would the dress be styled with a cardigan and sneakers?
