It’s still pretty warm here in NE Florida, at least for December! When the Blended Blog’s Wednesday link up theme was Cozy for the Holidays, the last thing I wanted was to be cozy! So I put my thinking cap on and came up with some variations on how to transition a summer dress to fall (it’s still technically fall til the winter solstice!) so that you can look fall without sweating!
This dress has been a favorite this summer. (You can see how I styled it for the summer HERE.) It’s light and loose and feels like I’m wearing a giant tshirt.
The first step in making the transition is to add opaque black tights and closed shes like these black Kenneth Cole booties that I bought a few months ago from Nordstrom Rack. When I started playing around with the cozy feel, I reached for this thick purple sweater. This would work great for those cool mornings when you need a little something on your arms but you know it’s going to warm up later.
This lighter-weight mustard yellow sweater is a favorite and brightens up this look! I will wear this later on in the day when it cools off a bit.
Here’s what I’m really wearing today. It’s still too warm to actually wear sleeves so I’m wearing this lightweight rust-colored vest as a completer piece.
