Happy Friday everyone! When it comes to your wardrobe something I hear a lot of questions about is how to transition pieces from season to season. It definitely sucks to only wear your clothes in only one season (not to mention it’s expensive!) so I am a huge fan of creating outfits that utilize other season’s pieces. In light of this, today’s post is on one of my favourite ‘transition tricks’- wearing a summer maxi dress in the fall!

Last summer maxi dresses were HUGE so I am sure most of you have one (…or five) in your closet. Ones that are sheer or gauzy fabrics are better left for summer, but ones made of cotton make an excellent fall piece! By pairing a maxi dress with a fall jacket, boots and a scarf you instantly have a fresh fall outfit. Adding a scarf is KEY as many (most?) maxi dresses have lower cut/summery necklines so use a scarf to hide that. (This particular maxi has a super deep V-neck, but you would never know!)

I hope you guys are ready for the weekend, I know I certainly am! While I have to work each day this weekend, I do have fun evening plans to keep me going. Tonight I have a friend’s birthday party and tomorrow night I am SO excited to have my sorority (delta gamma) alumni gala!!! I am going to be wearing a stunning fall dress made by a Delta gamma alumnae fashion designer! Follow me on instagram for photos of that! Xoxo.
