Happy Halloween Everyone! Did everyone dress up today? I will have to admit, I did NOT dress up today. At my previous job, Halloween was my boss’ favorite holiday so he would go all out.

I’m not sure how other cities deal with the transition from summer to fall, but Southern California is definitely on the slow train. It’s still warm enough during the days to wear shorts and skirts, but it definitely gets colder at night. This is why I think this rainbow mini sweater dress is a fun piece to wear during this transition time. It has the fun bright colors of summer, but the style and material of upcoming fall.
