Hello and thank you for stopping by my blog!
For this post, I'm taking two summer dresses and styling them
for the transition into autumn
As a side note, I had so much trouble making this post,
I wondered if it was just not meant to be!
A bizarre pop-up made it disappear once, then
I accidentally deleted the whole thing and had to start over a third time!
Could this be due to my desire for summer ☀️ 🌊 🌸 to remain a little longer?
Anyway, for my first outfit, I am layering an ivory semi-sheer long sleeve blouse
under a sleeveless tan and brown plaid summer dress
Now seems like a good time to pull this dress out of the closet to wear
I don't choose it very often for summer,
since the colors and plaid seem fall like to me-
maybe it's best suited as a transitional piece, after all!
The dress has an ornate beaded neckline
that looks like a very grand statement necklace!
My only jewelry with this busy dress is a pair of cute owl shaped earrings
embedded with faux pearls and large faceted black glass eyes
The tie belt I am wearing came with a pair of pants, but I like it better with this dress
Finishing the look with two-tone reptile embossed sling back Mary Janes
This next dress may look familiar-it's a very memorable print!
I wore it back in August in a post titled Color Pop Prints
This time I am styling it for fall, under a navy blue cardigan
The past few weeks I've been favoring all sorts of geometric shapes!
Bringing the accessories into fall with a vintage navy blue leather bag
with faux tortoise handles from the 1950's
For jewelry, I chose a gold tone hinged bracelet and circle earrings
to mimic the print shapes of the dress
Below is a transition outfit I wore during the second week
of September back in 2019
