An Easy Way to Transition from Summer to Fall

white ruffle dress

Hey, friends!! Thanks for stopping by today! I get so giddy when I post things that are the ultimate “me,” and this dress falls into that category – white, ruffles, feminine. I found this dress on Asos and was instantly sold. It also gives a nod to one of this Fall’s big trends – the Victorian collar.

Even though Fall still seems so far away – especially for us Texans that are still battling 100+ degree heat, Fall has already hit the stores. Just this week alone I’ve seen Michael’s put out all their Halloween and Thanksgiving decor and stores like LOFT and Nordstrom push sweaters, jackets, and boots. It’s crazy! I get it though because in some states temperatures will start to turn soon. So where does that leave those of us that still have a solid 2-3 months of hot weather left? Well, it leaves us with the chance to get creative.

I used to hate the transition period between seasons, but now I think it’s so fun! I may not be able to wear a cable knit sweater or a leather jacket yet, but I can start to incorporate Fall trends into my summer wardrobe. [By the way, if you missed my post laying out Fall 2017’s fashion trends, you can read it here.] For example, Victorian collars are one of the Fall trends. Instead of wearing a white blouse with a Victorian collar layered under a leather jacket, I found this adorable white dress with a Victorian collar.

Some of the other trends you could easily incorporate into your summer wardrobe would be embellished shoes, couch florals, midi skirts, and anything and everything red.

STYLE TIP: the dress is double lined, but if you’re concerned about it still being a bit see through then add a pair of spanx-type underwear like this mid-thigh shaping shorts pair (on sale) from Nordstrom.
