Like I promised, this week’s post will be focused on taking Summer items and making them work for Fall. This week, I am taking my Easter maxi dress to a different level.
This Summer, my good friend Catherine Coons took some lovely shots of Jason and I. For the shoot, I styled this dress accordingly;
I did this outfit up with a denim vest, brown braided leather belt, brown sandals and some sunnies. These layers were appropriate for a hot day in the summertime in Florida. But Fall, even in Florida, is a little chillier.
Can you wear maxis in the fall? YES! I get this question a whole lot, and I see no reason not to wear a maxi dress in Fall (as long as you are warm enough). To re-work this dress for the season, I layered it with a cropped sweater for warmth. Lately, I have been using this method to re-vamp my closet quite a bit. I find it to be the easiest way to warm up but still wear the dresses that I love. It really looks like an entirely different dress with the sweater layer.
I paired this maxi with my favorite grey booties from DSW, adding a little more warmth. By wearing these booties, it also added another color to the pallet of this look.
To add some final touches, I placed some of my favorite necklaces around my neck. The longer citrine crystal necklace is my newest go-to neckalace from Anthropologie (plus is carries some positive vibes). Another idea to accessorize would be to add a solid colored scarf to make the outfit even more appropriate for Fall.
It’s actually pretty simple to really transform a garment to work with all seasons. This is a quick way to do just that. What do you think? Leave a comment!
