Is anyone else suffering from major confusion on the weather? I feel like September is completely confusing! Mornings can be chilly, but three hours later I’m sweating in my long sleeved shirt. Or one day might be perfect to light up a fall candle and wear a chunky knit sweater, and the next I’ll be playing beach volleyball with friends!
This time of year I always struggle between savoring the last days of summer, while trying not to get into the fall spirit prematurely. Today I wanted to share with you my outfit of the week. I wore this maxi dress to a party and I was so excited, but then it became too chilly to wear. Instead of starting over I changed up the outfit so I could still wear my maxi dress, but now it was styled for fall! Go take a look!
The Maxi Dress
This maxi dress is such a wonderful fit! I usually steer away from longer dresses just because I don’t want to feel too out of place or uncomfortable in that much fabric. I am telling you now — this is nothing like any maxi dress I’ve ever owned! The material is T-shirt soft and thin enough that even on hot summer nights there’s no way to feel bogged down by extra clothing. The cut of the dress also makes it perfect to pair with a bralette.
Pair With Your Favorite Light Sweater
When it got to be colder, I snagged my light sweater that I usually wear on summer nights or early fall days. This sweater from Banana Republic doesn’t take away from the shape of the dress when I knot it at the front. I suggest either a light sweater (that’s thin enough to knot) or a long sleeve shirt might work better.
Add a Jean Jacket
For extra warmth (i.e. when it started raining on me!) I added on my trusty jean jacket for a full fall effect. Layering has become my best friend during these September days and I’m excited to be able to add more dimension to my outfits instead of the “shorts and a T shirt because it’s just too flipping hot” look that I’ve been rocking.
