This week my sister, Clare, is gone so I had to ‘model’ my own outfit. Which didn’t go so well. Please know that I didn’t intend for my face to not be in one picture (although I’m somewhat relieved). It’s just I’m no good at propping the camera and taking my own pictures.
For this week I wanted to show you how to take a spring/summer dress into the fall. I have one of my favorite dresses here that I got about 6 years ago. I put a long sleeve T over it in a similar tone as the dress’ background so it wouldn’t cut me off. Then I added a small skinny belt over that to add some definition.
I paired it with my favorite, bulky fall riding boots and you can add a jacket.
I love the soft, airy gypsy feel to this fabric.
Then you contrast it with some heavy leather and it takes it into the cool weather season. If you’re going to invest in a pair of boots, I highly recommend riding boots. They are always in style and have such a classic, American sportswear feel to them.
Don’t be afraid to transition pieces into fall. Just think about contrasting them instead of pairing them.
Enjoy your weekend!
