It’s almost October and still nearly 90 degrees down here in Jacksonville, but I want it to be Fall so badly! I’m that girl who started drinking Pumpkin Spice Lattes the day they came out, is slowly transitioning to darker lipstick colors, and is busting out the booties and leggings one-by-one. I recently came across this dress at Forever 21 and thought it was the perfect Summer-to-Fall transition dress. The lightweight material and length makes it acceptable to wear in the warmer weather, and the bell sleeves and floral-on-black print give it a cooler weather feel. Not to mention the stretch makes way for my growing baby bump – a necessity for any new purchases over these next few months :). I paired it with camel booties, a black velvet choker, and gold aviators for a simple yet put-together look. The best part? The complete outfit is under $100!
You can add a black felt wide-brimmed hat for a little more Fall flair. Also, the tan wrap choker/necklace with blush druzy stone is the perfect accessory to add to your Fall wardrobe! It can be worn a multitude of ways for several different looks, and comes in a variety of colors. I just love it!
All product details are listed below.
What do you think of this Summer-to-Fall outfit? How are you welcoming Fall in your neck of the woods? I am super jealous if you tell me you’re already wearing oversized sweaters and bomber jackets!
