outfit: transitioning from summer

August 27, 2014

transitioning the LWD to fall
You know that LWD that you’re not ready to retire just yet? You’re not alone. As fun as it is to talk about Fall, and I do loooovveee Fall clothes, it’s still better to hang on to summer. I always like to find ways to wear clothes in the typical off season, so long as it’s done the right way. For example, I’ll fully wear my neon hot pink sweater in the winter with faux black leather joggers or black pants, and darker accessories. Or, light denim with a chunky knit to the movies on a chilly night. Same goes with white dresses. The easiest way to bring it beyond Labor Day is to top it with a dark blazer and accessories.

This dress is from an online shop called L. Mae Boutique thats packed with great pieces, cute dresses, fun prints, and all affordable. You may have seen on Instagram that I wore this dress with flip flops during a family trip to Captiva Island, and I’d wear it styled this way year-round for a date night or girls night out.

    Wait - why would you need to transition from summer? Isn’t it still really hot there? Aren’t there still three more weeks of summer? Little white dresses need so much more time!

    This is a great outfit! I’m not into patterns, well, I just never try them unless they are on a dark outfit, but this dress is beautiful. The whole combination is perfect for the office. It’s fun, put together. I love it.
