This is one of my favorite fall looks year after year. Maxi dresses are the perfect summer-to-fall transitional piece for your wardrobe. You can layer a cardigan or jacket (like this denim one) and add a scarf for an easy fall look. It’s also a great fall style because it is easy to adjust it to the temperatures. On more summery fall days stick with a light weight cardigan and scarf, but on cooler days add a jacket and blanket scarf.

The key to transitioning your maxi dress into the fall is to choose your dress / dresses wisely. Maxi dresses made of lighter materials such as chiffon should be left for the summer months. Cotton dresses, in contrast, are perfect to wear in the fall. Dresses in solid colors such as navy, black or red are easiest to style for fall.

This has been an odd work week for me, having both yesterday & today as office days. It’s been great to actually catch up on paper work & emails, but I do struggle with not getting distracted at my desk. Hopefully today I can buckle down and then start my weekend early!

  1. I hope you start your weekend early, too.

    This turned out so chic and I have to try it with one of my plain jersey maxis. Such a cute scarf. And I love how the front door area of your home, looks, Lee. Such a pretty wreath and I am loving the bucket of potatoes too, nice touch.

    Come share your awesome style with me on my Thursday Linkup. A brand-new one is live this week, pretty lady. I'd love for you to join it. Thank you and have a great weekend!
