Transition Florals with Fall Accessories

I was not sure I would get to wear this dress again this fall but babes- it is still reaching in the 80’s here (and all week too!) I really can not believe this weather we are having! By adding rich textures and fall staples I can take a spring floral dress into fall. Which is clutch in this weather!

I purchased this dress on clearance at Kohl’s online over the summer for $10 to put back for fall. I thought even though it is a spring floral dress that the sleeves and rich hues it could still be pulled off for fall.

I had all intentions to wear green peep toe booties with this dress but with a gold infinity scarf I opted for the perforated mules from my fall shoe lineup. I have a gorgeous pair of over the knee wine colored boots that will look so great with this dress once the weather cooperates. I just ordered this faux leather jacket in burgundy that would look great with this dress too.

Adding some local love with my accessories for this look. I tossed on faux leather tassel earrings from Reclaimed Belle and a faux suede tote from Heart Mercantile. I am obsessed with this bag! Since September rolled in this bag has been my constant go-to!

I’ve linked simliar items for style inspo to create a transition look of your own this fall!

Try A Cozy Crop for Fall

I can not believe it is the last week of September and it is still in the upper 80’s and humid in Dayton! The high temps are to be here for a few more days and I am sure it is the last of the warm weather till 2018. The nice part to the weather still being so warm is being able to wear those colder season pieces that are sometimes like WTF, when am I supposed to wear this? The answer is right now, when it is humid and 88 but at the end of September when we are […]

The Windowpane OTS Dress

Happy first day of Fall friends! I spotted this shift dress on the clearance rack at Kohl’s and had to grab it! The material is so soft, it is almost flannel like. It has cute tie detail on the sleeves too. This chambray shift dress is the exact dress and unfortunately the windowpane print is out of stock. Possibly available on the clearance rack in the junior section of your local store. I saw today that Loft has a windowpane chocker dress that is soo cute. Look at those belle sleeves! Which belle sleeves are a MAJOR trend this season! I […]

Sweatshirt Dress is a MUST for Fall

Hey babes! Sorry for the MIA the rest of last week. We had some yard work done and they happen to cut our internet cable too. Technicians came over the weekend to repair our wires. We are a streaming household (we cut cable over 4 years ago!) so a few days without internet is both challenging and refreshing! One of the fall trends for 2017 that I am loving is the sweatshirt dress! Comfy, cute and easy to dress up or down. They are a must have for early fall weather! Although not this past weekend or upcoming week here. […]

Bell Sleeves and Wide Legs

Sometimes you need to throw caution to the wind, pair a few trends and see how they turn out. But isn’t that what makes fashion and styling fun? I think so! Being that I am barely over five feet tall wide leg pants is a tricky look for me to pull off. I always need to wear tall heels to allow that wide leg to flow. Pairing wide leg pants with a (slight) bell sleeve top is a bold move for me. I was not sure how this would look but I am loving the combo! It works because of […]

Sunflowers and Gingham

Pairing a perfect early fall activity with an end of summer classic style! Keep reading to find out more! There is this amazing sunflower field in Yellow Springs, Ohio. My husband and I have lived in Dayton for almost 8 years and admittedly this was our first time visiting. The field is gorgeous! However I had no idea what to expect visiting a sunflower field. There are tons of bees! Thankfully the little terrors are drunk on pollen and could care less about us moving through the field. I did not expect the flowers to be so tall or itchy […]
