Shopping My Closet: Round 3

Hey everybody!  If you want, take a peak at the first and second round of shopping my closet.

For those just visiting today, the point of shopping my closet is for me to go inside and create new ways to style old/familiar pieces.  Sometimes an item becomes so familiar that we get stuck wearing it the same way every time we wear it.  As I've gone out shopping recently, I've realized that there is nothing I really feel my wardrobe is lacking...however there are still days when I open those closet doors and think to myself (or my lucky hubs): "Gosh, I have nothing to wear."  You too?

So, as I was getting ready for a bridal shower last weekend, I texted my girlfriend asking her what she was wearing.  She started to complain that she had no "fall dresses" in her closet.  It made me think, I bet there are a lot of people out there wondering how to transition their summer dresses into a fall-ppropriate wardrobe.

I thought I would provide some ways that one might take a dress from summer to fall and possibly even winter.  It's actually not hard to do utilizing a few accessories/pieces you probably already own.
 Here are the two summer dresses I chose to transition:

Both dresses are cute and versatile for summer.  All I did to transition them into fall was add a few accessories/statement pieces you already have in your closet at home.
Dress: Old Navy (old), Cardigan: Gap Outlet, Necklace: eBay, Belt: Forever 21, Boots: Laredo
 Cardigans, boots, belts, and statement necklaces are a great way to make a simple summer dress work in cooler temps.  For a dressed down look, I love wearing my denim jacket over a dress with boots.  It's a great look for concerts.
Dress: Belk (old), Denim Jacket: Old Navy, Boots: Madden Girl

So there you have it, ladies!  There is no need to have separate "summer dresses" and "fall dresses."  You can wear your summer dresses throughout the seasons by adding some simple key pieces.

(It is still pretty warm in NC in the fall so I'm not wearing tights, but I would definitely rock a pair of tights under these dresses.)

Linking up with Wardrobe Wednesday!
