Transitioning Short Dresses

Floral Dress (just ordered this one) // Coated Denim // Jimmy Choo Heels (similar herehere) // Black Oversized Clutch // Karen Walker Sunglasses

Hey everyone! We made it back from Paris last night. 
What an amazing trip! I have to say it is hands down my new favorite city. Now just trying to play catch up and get our schedule back in order. Jet lag got the best of us! 

As a follow up to this post about transitioning your summer wardrobe into fall I wanted to share another trick for reworking your warm-weather dresses. Instead of prematurely storing away a bright summery short dress, tuck it into a pair of pants and let it drape from your waistline to resemble a blouse. This works for knee length or shorter dresses. When paired with darker hues like a leather pant or coated denim, vibrant prints work just as well for the cooler months. Reinventing summer pieces is also a great chance to incorporate your bright colored heels year round. Shoes are always my go to pieces to finish off the outfit and make it pop. I'm also loving these bright pink ones


XOX,
