now, in a little bit, later

< now // In a little bit // later >























Oh man, we are in that tricky time of year!
My mind is telling me that it should be Fall - back to school shopping, new notebooks, sharpened pencils, shorter days, pretty new clothes all hung up in the stores. 
But the weather is telling me otherwise!


Not only is it still 90 degrees outside, but all the Summer clothes are on sale too (temptation is strong!)
So how do I fight the end of Summer funk & sale vortex?

By adding items to my wardrobe that can be worn now while Summer is still here & later when the leaves begin to fall & the temps start to dip.

Boutique Onze sent over this fun knit day dress & I couldn't help but throw it on for a comfy weekend look & dream up 2 ways I will be wearing it in a little bit & much later.

How I'm wearing it now:
{What I Wore: dress c/o Boutique Onze // vintage head scarf // necklace c/o Yuni Kelley // J.Crew belt & tote // Nine West wedges }

How I plan on wearing it in a few weeks:
{ What I Wore: dress c/o Boutique Onze // vintage Vera scarf // Rebecca Minkoff bag // Old Navy booties }

How I dream of wearing it next month:
{ What I Wore: dress c/o Boutique Onze // J.Crew button down (similar for less!) //Steve Madden boots (similar) }

What pieces in your wardrobe are doing overtime to keep the end of Summer funk away?

  3. This is amazing–I'm really bad at transitioning pieces, so it was great to see this mixed up in so many different ways. I l-o-v-e the last look, and your hair in the first is super cute!

  6. It really is a tricky part of the year. It's so muggy and hot in Louisville. Although I'm happy summer isn't over just yet, I'm kind of getting sick of the 90 degree weather. The way you styled the outfits are gorgeous!

    Have a great day!

  17. Seriously, all these looks are adorable! I can't even pick a favorite. Maybe the fall one since I love a good layered look. Makes outfits just that much more interesting. Love!

  18. I have a gray knit dress like this with pockets that definitely does year-round duty. Most of my dresses will be coming with me as I can't bear to part with them for even a season! (Maxi skirts included!)

  23. I love how you were able to transition all these pieces! I just couldn't fight the urge anymore and completed my spring/summer to fall/winter wardrobe closet transition today. The only problem? Tomorrow is supposed to be the hottest day of the year here in Chicago. So that should be fun.

  24. Great styling of this dress. I love clothing that can transition through the seasons. For me most clothes can be worn year round since I live in Southern CA :)

  27. Agreed! July was so mild here that I got spoiled, & then WHAM August came it was all horribly humid Summer! I'm taking up wearing my Fall clothes around the house just to appease my itch!

  29. SO sticky is right! I had fun playing Fall dress up, but I definitely paid some sweat for it ;) (TMI??)

  30. You and me both girlie! It was 90 ˚F when I took these photos, so this was the only layering I could muster, but in a month or two I am definitely adding some tights and cardigans!
