I wanted to share this outfit with you guys today because it’s affordable, super cute and perfect for transition from summer and fall. Really in general, a lot of the dresses you have been wearing this summer can transition into fall by adding certain accessories.
Boots are the most obvious addition. It’s so simple to throw on a pair of knee-high or over-the-knee boots to take a dress from summer to fall. The exact boots I’m wearing in these photos aren’t available anymore so I linked similar ones from Sole Society that are great quality. I don’t own these particular boots, but I own over a dozen pairs from Sole Society and I can tell you with certainty that they are some of the best quality shoes I’ve ever had.
The color of your accessories can also make something feel more appropriate for fall in my opinion. For instance, my backpack is a rich neutral color that reminds me of the leaves changing color. I love this backpack so much and have been carrying everywhere lately. Backpacks are a great way to free up your hands so you’re not lugging a big purse around all the time. Don’t get me wrong, I love my purses and still use them regularly, but this backpack has been so convenient. Especially while chasing my two kids around. Well, chasing Molly and holding Riley. I need my hands free as much as possible to do those things!
I also think a fun wide brim hat feels very fallish to me. I have a huge head so I prefer a hat with a wider brim because they look better on me. And really, I think they just look better on everybody.
I bought the dress I’m wearing because it was affordable at under $60 and easy for me to breastfeed in. I kind of just figured it would be a summer dress while Riley was young, but the other day when I went out in the morning it was kind of chilly so I threw on boots and realized it was absolutely perfect to transition into fall. Plus this dress will be flattering on most body types, which is so great.
I just love this entire look and wanted to share all the details with you guys! Let me know if you have any questions in the comments below. My plan is to respond to EVERY comment on this post today!
P.S. Some of the below photos are what it is usually like these days when I try to take photos with Molly. Ha! It’s always eventful 🙂
