lost in transition





Top: H&M dress worn as a top (similar style here); Skirt: Forever21 (similar style here); Shoes: Asos (similar style here); Bag: Chanel; Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Jewelry: Bee Charming necklace, Michael Kors watch, J. Crew chain bracelet

It's that time again. Time to start scheming up ways to transition some of your summer go-tos for fall. I decided to start with this striped Prada-esque shift dress from H&M that I snagged a few months ago at the height of spring (and the height of color blocking). Thrown under a pencil skirt with some pointed toe court shoes, I think it tones down just enough for a brisk day in San Francisco.

What summer pieces are you getting ready to layer come fall?

  6. Do you have tricks for getting all the fabric of the dress under the skirt? It always ends up bulky on me :s

  15. love it!
    i'm always worried about looking too bulky or wrinkly with a dress under a skirt!
    is there any trick to it? the fabric/type of dress and skirt you pair together?

  16. Summer pieces that I'm looking forward to layering... Where I live I think we only had like a week's worth of summer weather. It's been absolute garbage for my wardrobe--already feels like fall. I think I'm most excited to be dressing in the right season once fall comes! And I can't wait to wear my boots again...

    You look amazing. I love this outfit. It's great. Love the shirt/dress... I'd love to see it as a dress. Have you blogged it before?
