When people tell me they are "sick of the hot weather" or "ready for fall," my response is confusion. I simply do not understand and have honestly been dreading the impending cold since July. Thus, I am taking things very slowly when it comes to fall shopping, which stores apparently really want me to do right now.
This mock neck top seems like the perfect transitional piece. According to the description, it's "lightweight," and that — paired with its three-quarter sleeves, mock (not turtle) neck and unfinished hems — makes it almost summer-appropriate, while the aesthetic is decidedly fall. Best of all, it costs less than a fancy dinner.
Free People Modern mock neck, $40, available at Free People.
