WALKING INTO FALL LIKE...
I wish I had this outfit when I was going back to classes in college.
It's always that awkward time of year. It's technically getting closer to fall, and the vibes are definitely going that direction as well, but the temperature? Still pretty warm! So how do you make that transition from summer dresses to autumn sweaters without sweating profusely all day?
This dress is not only amazing for spring and summer, but I absolutely love it for the fall as well. It is so easy to accessorize and it doesn't scream "warm weather". Yes, it's white and yes... there's a "rule" but I'm pretty sure the only people who really follow that rule are stuck in the early 90's. Or earlier! White jeans, maybe. But I think if you do it right, you wear that white, girl! I got you!
Another reason this outfit works so well going into fall is because of the shoes! Nothing screams fall like a good pair of rich brown leather shoes. They aren't boots, they aren't flip flops, they are the perfect offspring that will keep you fashionably cooler in those awkward summer-not-summer days. And I cannot wait to wear them with other outfits when it in fact does feel more like fall!
If you don't have a staple jean jacket, get to work. In my eyes, you could add a jean jacket to any summer outfit and it would automatically be a transitional outfit in my eyes. I'm not even going to admit how long I've had this jacket because... well... it makes me feel old. But it works! And with everything! Sure you can get one of the distressed longline jackets (which I have too so no judgment), but if you want just one jacket and are trying to simplify your closet, then a standard jean jacket that fits well is where I suggest you spend your money. I'll be sharing plenty more looks that feature these versatile gems in the future. So keep an eye out!
Another thing that I love about this dress is that it is under $100!! And since it is a piece that you can wear from the beginning of spring until the weather is just too cold to show your legs in the fall, you'll get MORE than your' money's worth.
