Perfect Dress To make Transition from summer to fall

Hello, Darlings!

It is August, summer is flying by. I would say we are in the lazy days of summer but it is busier than ever.  Stores and the internet are filled with new clothes for fall, but I am not feeling yet.  It is STILL summer!!!!  How do you make the transition but not lose that summer feeling? Try black & white!

Here is the Black & White Maxi Dress I wore on Sunday

This dress is several years old and one of my favorite for late summer. The dress was from Soma and the fabric feels like you are wearing pajamas. With an empire waist, the dress is slimming and I can’t pass up an Ikat print. Plus, I have received tons of compliments on this dress over the years.

Adding accessories to my wardrobe has been a goal for me this year. Accessories are an easy way to update a look or take a boring dress to fabulous! I found this necklace by Lilly Pulitzer at The Barefoot Princess in Watercolor, Florida this year.  I love Lilly Pulitzer accessories.  They were ahead of the trend with gold accessories.  I have added several pieces this year, and many have become my favorite for summer

Shoes are another area where I am working to update my wardrobe. My shoe buying has two goals in mind………comfort and cute! I have am loving the platform wedge style.  These shoes are quite comfortable and I am wearing them on many occasions. Plus,  at 5’1 it is nice to be taller and see the view. These shoes are by Gentle Souls which is a line made by Kenneth Cole.

The shoes I have are called Juniper Berry and I have them in aqua too.  This year they added a lower platform shoe called Lori and a Juniper Berry style in Cork.
