I love summer and hot weather and swimming and all that good stuff. But I confess that come September, I would be wishing and praying for cooler weather just so I could wear my new back-to-school jeans on the first day. I do the same thing now when new Fall/Winter stock starts to roll in. 
Here are some of the new Valerie Dumaine pieces to hit the shelves. 
Magnolia dress, $205 
The Magnolia dress is all stunner. Fits in all the right places, has an interesting print, and has v sophisticated button detail and sleeve length. 
Saffron tunic, $195
The Saffron tunic is just long enough to be a dress on my 5 feet 8 inches. It's perfectly loose with a cool faux leather detail down the center and across the neckline.
Larkin sweater, $159 and Betina Lou Jenn pants, $180
Emily said it first, but I second that this Larkin sweater is a total dream to wear. It is made of the softest wool, is slightly textured and will keep you so warm this winter. Put it on top of the Betina Lou Jenn pants and you've got yourself a work outfit.
