How To Transition Your Fall Floral Dress Back Into Spring

 

How To Transition Your Fall Floral Dress Back Into Spring - IMAGE 1

I’m all about discovering new pieces and trends for the upcoming seasons (that’s a given, LOL! #fashionblogger). But there’s something extra special about those items in my closet that I can wear throughout the year… over and over again. The ones I don’t even really have to pack away because there are so many ways to wear them regardless of the weather (YAY!). Not to mention, it’s quite spectacular for this gal on a budget, & wants to stay within her goals!

So if you have packed away your fall floral dress in the back of your closet because of it’s darker colors – you just might want to bring it back front and center so you can easily grab it for this spring season. And I want to show you how to easily transition wearing your fall floral into these months of sunshine, when everyone’s in the mood to get outside, have some fun, and conquer things on their wishlist from the wintertime!

FIRST: FALL STYLE

What’s not to love about some fringe booties, comfy tights, and a faux leather jacket once it hits October? Take notes for this upcoming fall, because I literally wore this outfit all the time last year! In fact, you can find more of my fringe love here to give you some extra ideas.

Oh, and did I mention that this is a LuLaRoe Nicole dress?! This company is awesome (and growing big time!), & I’ve been blown away by just the few pieces I own (super soft. super stretchy. super amaze!) *this is a Fall 2015 piece*

Currently, I am trying to find an RVA fashion consultant so if you know any, please  let me know because I am hoping to host another party soon (hooray!).

NEXT: HOW TO TRANSITION TO A SPRING STYLE

1) Eliminate the layers.  Lose the heavy jackets & tights! Something I love about this particular dress are the longer sleeves, and the way that it drops at the waistline to create a feminine flow. If you find yourself needing some extra warmth (because spring is unpredictable), a simple cardigan that is a neutral color would compliment this look well.

2) Add a statement necklace. For a fresh, spring look, I chose a bold colorful statement above my neckline to contrast the deep navy in my dress. Because I am eliminating layers, adding something bold won’t give the outfit a busy-look like it would with the previous, fall style.

(Oh, and did you notice an accessory that didn’t change? ; ) Yes, I am most definitely an all-year-drink-hot-coffee fan. But I will say…an iced mocha and a peach green tea are tied for second!)

3) Pair the outfit with some ankle high sandals. With the length of this particular dress, slip-on sandals did not  look cute (I tried several on), so I opted for these camel colored ankle-high zip-ups that have a gladiator style to them. I LOVE them paired together and next time, I plan on including some extra tall gladiator sandals in a similar color to mix it up.

4) Add a small simple clutch or cross body bag. I’ve never cared for a big, bulky bag pulling on my shoulder when wearing a dress (unless it’s a large, basic tote..more on this in a future post!), so this bright bag seemed just right to complete the look as it brings out the flowers in the dress without being super matchy-matchy.
