Summer-thing to Fall Back On

Don’t get me wrong, I love Fall just as much as the next basic white girl (layers, pumpkin spice and booties, Oh My!), but it is always hard for me to say goodbye to the carefree sunny days of summertime.  And I especially hate preparing myself for the great closet switch that is bound to happen as the temperatures cool.  Luckily, we don’t have to fall headfirst into Autumn quite yet, especially when it comes to our wardrobe.  It is super easy to take your favorite summer items with you into fall with just a few little tweaks.

For example, this dress is one I have been wearing non-stop the past few months.  Despite it’s sweater-y look, it is actually quite breezy and kept me cool on many a summer evening.  But just because it is September does not mean I have to put this little beauty away!

Instead, I can switch out my brighter accessories and summery wedges:
