Transitioning the Little White Dress (and a Giveaway)!

transitioning a white dress to fall Topshop dress (love this one and this one) / Bar III jacket (love this one, this one, and this designer version is 50% off!)  / ombre scarf (love this one) / Vagabond booties / quilted backpack (similar)

Today I’m collaborating with Laura, Zelle, Alicia, Julie, and Shelby to show you six different ways to transition our favorite white pieces into fall — and to give away a $125 Nordstrom gift card and a pair of Kendra Scott earrings!

I always become attached to my little summer dresses — they’re so easy to throw on and I tend to live in them in the warm weather. When fall rolls around, I always feel the need to stick them in the back of my closet and not touch them again until the following year. This year I’ve decided to try to incorporate them in creative ways into my fall wardrobe! One of my favorite dresses is this little white one from Topshop, so I decided to pair it with a leather jacket, tights, and booties for a fall-ready look. I love this ombre scarf I discovered at Nordstrom recently that plays into the monochromatic outfit. It adds interest, and the quilted backpack adds edge!

So Long Summer: Outfit Round-up

summer15 Every year, summer comes and goes so quickly. I’m in shock that today is the first day of September already, but I’m also excited for the cooler months ahead! I can’t wait to take risks and incorporate more unexpected pieces and pairings to share with you all this fall.

Before I dive into all-things-fall, I’d love to know what your favorite summer outfits were this year. Is there anything you wish you wore more of? I think I would’ve liked to play with feminine skirts and maxi dresses. I tend to opt for shorts or a dress, but because of my height I have less patience for trying on maxis. I look forward to playing around with them more next year (and finding ways to inforporate them into my fall wardrobe)!

Cool and Contrasted

zDSC_9586f Dress (bought in a boutique in Charleston — love this one) / Quilted backpack (similar here and here) / Nordstrom sunglasses / Saks Off 5th shoes (love these)

This weekend and last week was a whirlwind! I felt like I was playing catch-up all week, and we had to finish designing a website from start to finish with a hard deadline today so, though fun, it was really stressful!

On the bright side, I was able to go see a Darius Rucker concert on Saturday and met up with a cousin of mine I haven’t seen in multiple years! It was a fun way to unwind — though I’m still behind on sleep!

P.S. This one is really similar to mine and is on sale!
