I know florals aren’t groundbreaking for spring, but what about for fall? Probably not groundbreaking either. Florals for all seasons really works, but I did read that fall florals are really going to be big this year. And that is just fine with me!
If you have a summery floral dress, it is easy to take it into fall, especially if it has a darker background like this one. First thing – add a pair of fall shoes, like an open toe bootie or a loafer. Next, if it is sleeveless, top it off with a denim jacket, cardigan or blazer. If you want to go further, add a darker lip to really give it that fall feel. When it gets cooler, switch out the booties for riding boots, and maybe throw on a pair of tights. Talk about making your dresses work double (or triple) overtime.
If you take anything away from this post, make it this – you can absolutely make those summery florals work for fall. The same thing goes for a summery floral skirt or top. It is all about what you pair it with. Just have a little imagination, and experiment.
I just bought this dress a few weeks ago from Draper James. I fell in love with it when it first came out. After it went on sale, I was going to get it, but it sold out. When they had an additional 30% off sale, I checked and it was back. So I had to get it. I love it so much. It is super flattering, and it really works for all seasons. The dark background really makes it perfect for fall, but of course will be great next summer too! And I just love the ruffles. I think it will be really cute with brown riding boots when the temps drop some.
Unfortunately, this dress is sold out now. But the Draper James Southern Living Dress has a similar feel to me. (Reese wore it on the cover of Southern Living for September). And, of course, it is also on my wishlist!
