so long sweet summer!

Fall is just around the corner, and I can’t wait to welcome it with sweater-encased open arms! But we’re not there yet, so I’m trying to fill that weird season transition by fall-ifying my summer pieces. What’s fall-ifying, you ask? Just piling a few lightweight layers over and under those strappy little sundresses and tossing all of your junk into a darker bag.

  1. I’m never ready to admit summer is coming to an end so I’m always looking for ways to get extended wear out of my summer pieces. “Fall-ifying” them with a black handbag is a great tip!

  2. I have that same dress in a reddish/pink color and neglected to wear it all spring and summer. Thanks for reminding me of it, I might just try to “fallify” it myself!

  3. ha that’s the perfect word. and exactly what i do. if i had more money, i’d buy transition pieces, but for now, it’s all about the cardis, boots, and darker bags.

  4. I don’t know what the weather is like in Winter Park, but in Sarasota it is H-O-T with no chance of cooling down anytime soon! I’d kill to wear layers without melting…you look great! :-)

  5. What an adorable dress!!! And the Toms? Love that color! I want some!!
    Also, I thought you should know that you look like Nicole Kidman in the first picture here… pretty!!

  6. Aw, say it isn’t so! Summer went by way too fast. :( I’ve already had to start fall-ifying my outfits. I love your green TOMS–super cute!

  7. I just got a vest like this and I am so excited! I’ve already worn it twice in one week which is a lot for me! I love it paired with the floral sundress. Great fall-ifying!

  8. I have that same vest (worn it TO DEATH this summer) and the same AE dress but in the pink color that I haven’t figured out how to style casually. Hopefully we’ll have at least one more nice weather day so I can try pairing them like you did! Thanks for being inspirational as usual ;)

    1. It takes a concerted effort not to throw this thing over every single outfit. Old Navy has a really cute one in tan, and I’m thinking about scooping it up for fall!
