Extending My Summer Wardrobe into Fall by Shopping My Closet
(Follow along on Instagram for more pictures, too.)
It's that season of early fall with those cool mornings and warm afternoons. All around us are the colors or fall - in the home decor aisles, the fashion magazines, social media. Every part of us wants to dress for fall, but it's not quite time to pull out those sweaters.
I found a solution that's working great for me and even extending my summer wardrobe. I'm taking summer dresses and pairing them with lightweight ponchos and blouses to give them a little fall touch and layering effect.
I feel confident that anyone can do this. Take a look in your closet and grab a summer dress in a neutral or more fall color, then get creative. Do you have a fun blouse, button-down, poncho, lightweight sweater or cardigan, denim jacket, vintage army jacket...? The list is endless. Top the dress with one of these, grab some chunky sandals or sneakers and you've got a great transitional look without spending a dime.
I'll be posting pics on my Instagram as I build these outfits myself. Follow along. Let's have some fun heading into fall.
