This is my last fall outfit of the year! I can’t believe winter is around the corner (and it already feels like winter here), but today’s look is about making a summer dress work for fall!
To be fair, this dress isn’t exactly from the summertime but if I didn’t tell you, couldn’t this dress totally pass as a summer dress? I recently got this dark floral dress because I thought it would be perfect for both Hawaii (I went in November) and the colder weather here in Seattle. I mostly packed summer clothes that I already owned for Hawaii, but I wanted a few new summer items. At the same time, I didn’t want it to be a one-time-wear dress so I made sure I could transition this floral number. It’s really easy to make a summer dress work for fall – simply pile on the layers and switch out those sandals for boots! I love wearing scarves and booties with dresses (example here), or in my case, a chunky cardigan with over the knee boots. Other combinations you could try are faux leather jackets with sneakers or jean jackets with flats. You can’t go wrong with any of these pairings!
This dark floral dress is from Nordstrom and is currently still in stock! If you’re looking for a slightly dressy item to bring on your warm weather vacation, definitely try out this piece. I know how difficult it is to find summer clothes during winter! For reference, this dark floral dress runs small. I would size up at least one size and possibly even two sizes. It’s such a pretty dress with the pink flowers contrasting against the navy blue. I also love the wrap style that’s so classic and stylish – I’m sure I’ll be wearing this dress next summer too! What are your favorite ways to make a summer dress work for fall?
