how to transition into fall

Friday, August 05, 2016

I'm kind of over summer already. Who's with me? I'm ready for booties, oversized sweaters, and all of the fun fashion that comes with the cooler weather!

I'm SO excited today to have teamed up with one of my adorable Instagram girlfriends, Tessa Marie to share with you guys two different ways to transition your summer clothes into fall! Head over to her blog (HERE) to see all of her cuteness, and her style tips for you!

I'm all about dresses in the summer, so I thought I'd share with you a few easy steps to make them wearable in the fall.

Just a couple easy switch-a-roos and you're good to go!

If being a mom/blogger/whatever I am doesn't work out, I think I have a career as a Price is Right show girl? ^^

So here we are; the transition! I love this simple black cotton dress from Old Navy. It's simple, yet so versatile. The perfect transition piece. {I've linked a few similar below for you.} 

Here's what I swapped:

SHOES. You have to keep those tootsies warmer in the fall, so I opted for a pair of black booties in place of my favorite Rebecca Minkoff Gladiator Sandals.

HAT. I switched out my summer-y straw fedora for a black felt rancher hat instead. The hat alone gives the outfit an entirely new look!

JACKET. I added the cutest jean jacket from Down East Basics. It's the perfect shade and matches everything I wear!

That's it! 3 simple pieces and you have an entirely new, casual, fall-ready outfit! Ba-da-bing ba-da-boom!
