Summer to Fall

Dear Fashion Diary,

So a little while back I guest posted over at Nina's blog at "Momma Go Round"
about turning your summer wardrobe to fall-ready apparel!
And I decided to just do the whole post on here too cause I loved the outcome so much.
Here's the summer version:

And the fall version!
I added leggings to keep my legs warm,
switched out the bright yellow top for a more subdued mustard,
ditched the open toed heels for some warmer booties,
and of course layered, layered, layered!

So I hope I inspired just 1 person to still wear their summer favorites in the
fall/wintertime! Bright colors and patterns
can have a place in All seasons.

By far my favorite scarf. The warmest? No. The cutest? Yes.

  •  blazer: thrifted
  • scarf: gift
  • mustard top: Forever 21
  • belt: Wet Seal
  • Floral skirt: thrifted {Gap}/ white skirt under: Forever 21
  • flower pin: Jo-Ann
  • leggings: ?
  • boots: Steve Madden c/o Amazon Similar {on sale!}

P.S. I feel a little silly posting this about fall, when it's been SNOWING nontop here all day. What happened, Autumn??! Straight to winter? This isn't fair.
Pin It!

Very cute fall version! I love the booties. I've been trying to find some booties but they all make me look like I have cankles. I need some that go below my ankle and I need to be brave. Haha. I am jealous of the snow. It's supposed to be 92 on Monday here!

such a clever and pretty transition....and you surely gave me inspiration to turn one of my dresses into fall wear by adding the same thing you have done!!!

Meagan said...

Layering the skirts and adding the leggings and chunky boots makes this such a fall look. Adorable!
