I’m back on this lovely Thursday with another way to transform your favorite summer maxi dress into a fall appropriate look!

Layering a sweater on top of a dress is an incredibly easy way to get a new look from an old closet staple. This works for all types of different dresses {something I plan to do with several of my strapless dresses for the cooler months}. Since I was going for a more sophisticated date night look, I added a pair of basic pumps, statement necklace & black envelope clutch. 

To create a similar look, make sure you are pairing pieces with a contrasting fit: Flowy skirt/dress with a fitted sweater OR a fitted skirt/dress with an oversized sweater.

I would love to see your take on this “maxi dress into fall” style! Tag me on Instagram <@kelsslayt> or tweet me <@StyledBlonde> to share your look!

We all have those beloved summer maxi dresses that keep up cool in the dead of the summer… But what happens to those dresses when the temperatures drop & we are left reaching for warmer pieces? Well I decided I want to maximize my closet by taking those pieces into next season by adding appropriate layers!

This darling pleated white maxi dress from Milk & Honey Boutique was such a life saver this summer! However, it isn’t exactly “teacher appropriate” or warm on its own. Using a little Pinterest inspiration, {follow me here!} I opted to add my green utility jacket & cut-out booties. Now this maxi dress is almost as fall ready as I am! Adding this “tough,” structured jacket to the feminine pleat details of this dress created a fun contrast that was balanced with the neutral accessories. So go grab that dress you already put away for the cooler temps & try pairing it with booties and jacket for a refreshed style!  
Come back tomorrow & I will share another way to transform your favorite summer dress into the perfect fall outfit!

I cannot tell you how many times I have stood in my closet doorway, racking my brain for outfit ideas, while my husband is rushing me to get out the door! Luckily, leggings & a jean jacket are always an easy solution.

When I have those days {we all know what I am referring to}, a leggings + tunic + jean jacket combo are an easy way to throw it all together while still looking put together. I scored this white tunic during the Nordstrom Nsale and it has been a life saver on multiple occasions. 
& THANKFULLY the unbearable Oklahoma heat is starting to fade away so the booties are coming out! 
I < along with the rest of the blog world > cannot wait to jump into sweaters, layers, and THESE boots 🙂

Have a wonderful day, friends!
