Summer to Fall – 1 Dress, 5 Outfits


I know, I know, it’s Monday….again…but I’ve got a little something fun to perk you up!

With all this beautiful fall weather upon us, I thought it might be fun to show you a few outfit ideas for warming up a summer staple. I used a simple white dress, which could easily be replaced for the notorious little-black-dress that we all own and love. I added layers to create a cooler-weather appropriate look. If you don’t live in a warmer climate, like I do, you could also add some tights, cute frilly socks peaking out of your boots, a knit hat, and of course a jacket.
