While we might not be ready to pack away our summer dresses just yet, the rain is making it pretty hard for us to continue wearing them. The easy months of teaming them with my chunky flipflops for those sunny lunches and dinners are ending, and I have to think about what the next step is. How are we going to still make floaty, midi dresses work in this awkward and humid mid season section?

With it being way to early to bring out the boots (ok, maybe only a week or two), I personally will be leaning towards the trainer to balance out those effortless dresses. Weather safe and casual (I would always go underdressed rather than overdressed), these are shoes to bridge that gap. Think white Vans with oversized floral numbers, workout trainers with simple jersey/knitted dresses and dad trainers with slip dresses.
