Transitioning a Summer Dress For Fall

Well now that it is actually September, I finally feel comfortable showing fall transitional outfits.  I know a lot of fashion bloggers started doing this in July, but I don't believe in rushing the seasons.  This is the time of year when the temperatures are either still warm, or fluctuating from cool in the a.m and p.m but hot in the afternoon.  Layering is essential during these transitional seasons!

One of the things I do when choosing outfits for transitional seasons, is pick summer clothes with fall colors and add an extra layer that can be easily taken off as the temps rise or fall.

This burgundy shift dress has short sleeves, so its great to wear in warmer weather, but the color is a fall color. 


  The dress is  a few years old.  I've shown it to you before HERE, HERE, and HERE.  I bought it at Charming Charlie's for only $20.00 and I think I got a lot of use out of it for as little as I paid for it!


Styling this short sleeve dress is so easy because of the burgundy color.   I just added a denim vest (old, Target), brown suede sandals (JCP), and a boho cross-body bag (old, Francesca's).


My shoes I showed you on Monday's Fashion's Post.  They are new, but I could not find them on-line.  I bought them in-store at JCPenney on clearance for only $16.97.  There is a similar pair HERE.


For jewelry I wore a gold bracelet, gold rings, and gold and a blue/green necklace and earring set.







Have a Great Day!  Amy

  6. Amy, this is a great look. I adore a dress and denim vest combo. Your choice of sandals and bag were spot on in pulling together the whole outfit. Thank you for sharing your inspiration on my Fine-Whatever link up.

    1. Thank you! No, not chilly yet. It's usually in the 50's early morning or evening but then 80 degrees in the middle of the day. We've had a few days in the sixties, but then it bounces back into the 80's the next week. That wonderful time of year when the weather can't make up it's mind! LOL!
