Transitioning to Fall (While Wearing a Summer Dress)

How to wear a summer dress in the fall

Well… Happy Monday there, friend!

Today is my first day of my MBA program and I’m pretty sure I’m more nervous for it than I was for my first day of kindergarten. All last week, I was in orientation with my new classmates… all day, every day. I’m happy to report that, despite a shaky first day, I’m already really enjoying myself and I’ve made a few friends.

I really do sound like a kindergartener!

Lately, I’ve been trying to fall-ify my closet and wardrobe choices. After going a little mental with the J.Crew sale over the weekend (it ends tonight and I bought the most gorgeous corduroy skirt!), I decided that it’s time to start making the transition to fall.

Thankfully, for the first time in literally ever, Texas weather is agreeing with the rest of us that fall is on its way (aka it’s not 1000° outside for once!). So this is the first August that I won’t be roasting in my back-to-school wear.

My favorite way to transition from summer to fall is to first figure out how to wear a summer dress in the fall. Take this DVF dress for instance. I’ve been wearing it all summer long and I am quite hesitant to give it up, just because the seasons are changing. By adding cowboy boots, the frock instantly goes from looking like May to sittin’ pretty in August. If I were to throw a denim jacket or a navy cardigan on top, it’d be ready for mid-September.

That should keep my back-to-school shopping to a somewhat manageable level, right?
