Summer Transition | Two Piece Maxi Dress + Lace Up Heels

Hello everyone! Now that the temps are cooling down and we are transitioning to fall mode, I chose the outfit below as an another example of how to transition your summer outfit into fall. I’ve been seeing out of dresses and rompers being split into a two-piece which I find it appealing. For one, when you have a pattern that runs from head to toe, it’s nice to break it up by splitting it to create a nice silhouette and make it interesting.

I’ve mentioned color and material are two ways to add in fall into your summer outfits such as the fun red florals on black background pattern in this outfit coupled with the suede lace up pumps. As you can see that I’m clearly holding onto the off-shoulder top and ruffles just a little bit longer. Many thanks to my blogger bestie, Kim, for helping me shoot these photos! If you don’t know her by now, please check out her page when you get a chance.
