Summer Dresses for Fall

Dress: Patterns & Pops//Sweater: forever21//Fur Collar: thrifted// Heels: dsw//Sunnies: target

It wasn't too long ago that I showcased this dress in a totally different way (here)!  So today, I went a little more casual by layering a sweater, fur collar and crossbody purse to complete the look.  I love simple layering like this because I am not a big fan of putting clothes away for the seasons.  I would much rather wear/style them in different ways to keep them out all year around.  This look is one of many examples of how to keep those summer dresses in use for the fall season.  What is you favorite way to transition looks into the Fall?

Still collaborating, Still with Patterns & Pops, Still fabulous!  This time it involves the perfect Holiday skirt!  I love the color, the length, the pockets and the price!  That is what is so great about these girls and their online boutique... they have very chic pieces that don't put a hole in your pocket! Winning.

Who likes collaborations... WE DO! And this week I am styling a few lovely pieces from a local yet all online boutique- Patterns & Pops! The ladies behind the brand are so fabulous and stylist that it just makes sense for all of the pieces to be too!  I mean this dress - Hello Fabulous!  It is the perfect date night dress but could totally be dressed down, which I will be showing later in the week. Or how about the ideal dress for the approaching Holidays - um yes!  Grid anything I am all about it and this color combo takes me away from my usual go to black and white so I am hooked! Although the  dress is lovely on it's own,  I love layering and this dress was the perfect opportunity to pop of a bow blouse underneath and call it a night!  So many fun ways to style it - go and get it!!!

Also I tried something totally new with the exposure on my camera & I'm diggin it! This way I don't have to wait until golden hour or have shade to take pictures!!

How great is this coat?!  I remember when I got it in the mail last winter, I knew it was going to be my go to coat when it gets chilly.  I love the black and white check and it is super cozy.  And that's all you really need in a coat - fashionable & functional.  Winner!

I was fortunate enough to snap off a few photos last week before this winter weather hit.  It is so cold outside, I believe 17 degrees and not going to get much warmer by the end of the week.  Yay for winter right?! Not!  This will be our first winter here in Colorado, and I've been told by locals they are pretty mild... hm, we'll see about that.  From the looks of this weeks weather I'm going to need more coats and boots (which is not really a problem!!) I get super excited for "functional shopping" because the hubs doesn't ask too many questions!
