Greetings from Central Park.. kidding. I’m sitting on my bed in Arizona (catch up here if you missed the big news) but my next few posts will still be in NYC. Before we moved I shot some looks so you’ll be getting a bit of East Coast content just a little longer. Not going to lie though, I’m feeling a tinge of sadness looking at these pics because it was my last trip to the city before moving. I actually walked around Central Park by myself for a good hour (mostly because I got lost and couldn’t find my way out) after shooting and it ended up being such a treat. It was hot and I had my big suitcase filled with outfits – us bloggers normally shoot multiple outfits in one day if you didn’t know 😉 – but I focused on the magic of the city instead of the sweat dripping down my face and now I love that my horrible sense of direction unintentionally gave me a chance to properly say goodbye to the city.
With context around these and future photos, I’m now ready to dive into the fashion.. lol
So we’re rounding the corner of a new season and while many are ready to chat fall fashion, some (including myself) still feel like there’s so much more summer to enjoy. I get the reasons behind the sudden shift in season talk but Arizona weather is going to be hot for quite some more time. This time of year normally means dreaded transitional weather so I wanted to share a dress perfect for summer and fall.. well, early fall.
what I’m wearing
There are two main reasons this dress works for summer and fall; the first being the color and second the classic and simple silhouette.
Mustard yellow, at the core, is still yellow so it lends itself to the bright and sunny months of summer time. But because it’s a darker shade, it easily transitions into the cooler, moodier months of fall. It’s such a complimentary hue that gives just the right pop of life. Add it to your wardrobe as a way to incorporate color while still keeping things sophisticated and classy.
I also mentioned the silhouette of this dress. I love how simple yet elegant it can be. Not only can you wear it during the day, but it works perfectly for any nighttime event.
During warm weather months, wear it as is but once fall hits, layer with a cropped sweater or long cardigan for a cozier look. I’ll link some current faves below.
Tell me, what pieces do you normally take from summer into fall? Basics, like classic tees and denim, always stay with me year-round.
Thanks for stopping by today! Until my next one.
