Hello Hello! How was your weekend?? I spent some time with family, we seriously laughed so hard we were crying. It was a really fun evening. Thanks to a tiny bit of cool early evening weather, I was also able to lace up my running shoes and go for a short jog/walk. Texas heat makes outdoor workouts impossible in July through early September, so I love when the temps finally let me get out and do a little light jogging.
I have been sharing lots of fall outfit inspiration lately, and I wanted to share how to transition summer dresses into fall. These tips are super easy, and you probably already have everything you need in your closet.
First – It’s all in the shoes. Booties were one of my must haves basics for fall, and they are a great way to create a fall outfit with your summer dresses. I love a good peep toe bootie because I feel like they still have a slightly summer feel and are good if it is warmer out. For a closed toe bootie, I like to pair my dresses with a bootie that dips in the front across the ankle. I think it help create a little bit more of an elongating look versus cutting you off and throwing off your proportions. For some reason, I don’t feel that way with a peep toe on me.

Second – Add on a layering piece. Whether you opt for a denim jacket, leather jacket, or cozy cardigan, adding on a layer over your dress is the easiest way to transition summer dresses to fall. This one piece can change the overall look of the dress. A fitted jacket can help add shape, and a looser fitting cardigan can give you a casual boho vibe.
I told you, two steps and super easy. Thanks so much for checking in today, and don’t forget to keep scrolling to check out the Style File Link Up!
