Pursuit of Fashion

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.

If you live somewhere colder than Tampa, Fl, you can always put an under layer of thermal leggings, no one will ever see them under the dress, and you won’t have to worry about being cold outside. IMG_1480

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!
