Transitioning Summer to Fall

IMG_0685

This striped t-shirt dress is one of my favorite dresses from summer. I grabbed it at (where else) Target this past July and it became a staple for me all summer long. As the weather gets chillier it is still one of my favorite pieces. The common belief that summer clothes must be tucked away at the end of summer isn’t always true. There are tons of fun and fashionable ways to transition your clothing throughout the seasons. For this look I simply added a black knit infinity scarf to fend off the cold, and paired it with my favorite pair of white converse. Here are a few simple ways to transition summer clothes into fall:

1.) Scarves:

As seen in today’s outfit scarves are a cozy and cute way to make a summery dress perfect for the colder weather. Pair your favorite dresses or summer shirts with cute infinity scarves, knit scarves and (my new fav) blanket scarves.

2.) Boots:

Short or tall, boots are another great accessory to add to your summer pieces to keep your tootsies warm. I’m loving shorter booties this season, but rider boots are another great option to pair with a dress or even a pair of jeans and a flowery top.

3.) Cardigans:

Don’t put your tank tops away just yet, throw on a cardigan to fend off the cold and keep your favorite summer tanks in style for fall.

How do you transition your summer clothes to fall?

So I finally caved. I have been completely adoring every single monogrammed thing I see lately and I finally gave in. My happiness when this purchase arrived was indescribable. I bought a monogrammed vest from MarleyLilly (the monogrammed quilted vest to be exact). If you don’t already own a vest, get one now! Vests are the staple to have this fall, they are perfect to be paired with sweaters, flannels and scarves. Also they add extra warmth on the cooler days.

I would say that MarleyLilly is the cutest site ever and I will most definitely be shopping it again. If you have not yet checked it out I definitely recommend doing so! They sell everything monogrammed, and by everything I mean anything from lunch boxes to personalized boots. They almost always have a sale of some sort. Currently they have: spend $50 free shipping and also spend $50 to get a free tee. (But hurry the free tee sale only lasts until tomorrow!) Typically I dislike ordering online because the packages take forever to arrive but I was pleased to receive my vest two days after purchasing. I may be revisiting the shop soon to buy more! I’ve listed my “wish list” below, check it out for more adorable MarleyLilly items.

My MarleyLilly Wish List:

Happy Fall everyone!

Today’s Outfit: Baseball Tee Dress

This summer I have found that there is nothing I love more than dresses. Especially comfortable, cotton, easy to wear, easy to wash dresses. So when I saw this dress walking into Forever 21 earlier this week I had to have it. My love for baseball tees also fueled my fire in making this purchase, but the best part, it was only $12.

T-shirt dresses are arguably one of the biggest trends this summer. And I love them, I love that you can wear them casually or dress them up, I love the way they look with heels or sneakers, I love love love everything about them, except they don’t love me. Every t-shirt dress I have tried on has completely eaten my petite figure, and yes, I know they are supposed to be loose, but they are also supposed to be flattering, and on me they are not.The cinched waist of this dress was exactly what I needed to achieve the t-shirt dress trend.

P.S. Can we talk about converse for a moment? I really love converse. They are such a versatile, not to mention comfortable shoe. Despite this I also typically do not find it appropriate to pair any dress with any type of sneaker, but for this dress it worked. A little sporty, a little chic.
