Happy three day weekend. Fact or fiction, Labor Day is the psychological transition from summer to fall. So, this month's wish list is filled with transition pieces. I got a little excited about you in dresses, so this list has more than usual. But, of course, these can also work double duty as skirts. Off we go!

I'm a big of this dress for you. It does the heavy lifting without you having to. It defines your curves, is a glorious palette for your jewelry and is ideal for layering. Throw a leather jacket over top with boots or opt for wedges and a cardigan. I love the color and can certainly see you rocking this regularly in cold weather or when the sun comes out. Best of all, it's crazy comfortable and is sure to elicit compliments. Just be aware of the height of the slit, depending where you are headed.

Structured, hip, unusual and crazy flattering, this is a nice alternative to your white jacket as the colder months approach. The length shows off your waistline and the structure gives you lots of curves. Rock it over a tunic and jeans to elongate your torso or try it over a dress. It's an investment, for sure, but one that will pay off in the long term.

These are so you and both color options are stunning. On trend, the cutouts add visual interest and can be paired with a wide array of pieces in your closet. I like giving you the opportunity to choose an open toed bootie when it isn't raining because over time, having to go with a closed toe shoe everyday looses its appeal.

We have several print dresses and skirts for you in your uber wish list, I wanted to give you a fresh offering that transitions easily into fall. This piece looks lovely with the shoes above in grey or the same pair in wine. I told you both colors were great! I can see you getting a lot of wear with this as a skirt. Add a cozy sweater or your chambray shirt over top. It defines your waist and is super comfortable. The length is easy regardless of whether you are playing with the kids or heading to drinks. Lovely with a bold necklace or earrings and your new leather jacket. Alternatively, the jacket above is especially classy.

Something new and interesting that is sure to attract attention. Try this over print dresses like the one above or with a basic tee to keep things interesting. It's clearly very different from your other pieces and offers you more choices when dressing each day. And both colors look great next to your face. My favorite part, the price.

It's possible that a strapless dress won't work for you. But, I can SO see you in this one, so I'm including it. Insanely practical- in warmer weather it's beautiful with a statement necklace or earrings and your flat sandals. As things cool off, add a crop top and rock the denim skirt with ankle boots. Even colder? Go for a cozy crop sweater, a leather jacket and boots. The pockets mean you can head to the park with just your keys, cell phone and the kids. Keep this one in your closet year-round to show off your figure while still maintaining the highest level of comfort.

This is the coziest, softest sweater. I've got one and am considering stocking up on more. The price is right, for sure. Whether you wear it with your brown leather pants and boots or over a dress, you'll be riding the cozy sweater trend this season all the way to nap time.

Sophisticated, interesting and flattering, this skirt allows you to embrace your love of black and still draw attention. Try it with your white leather jacket or tuck in your chambray shirt. Warm weather means a sleeveless top and DV wedges and cold weather pairs this skirt with your new leather jacket and boots. Done and done!

I know you love form fitting clothes and this jumpsuit may feel a bit billowy for your taste. However, what kind of stylist would I be if I weren't suggesting a jumpsuit for you? This one would look spectacular on your body and you could absolutely pull it off. Really, your figure is great for jumpers in most silhouettes. Just look for options that define your waist and show off your figure. Don't be afraid. They are dresses with the ease of trousers. And this one would be glorious with your new leather jacket….
