This summer came and went in a nano second. As a last hoorah here is a fun, colorful photo shoot. This was taken in Astoria, Queens; a neighborhood I am all too familiar with. If you ever visit New York City, I highly suggest taking the N or Q train out to taste some amazing Greek food.
The dress is from Mango in a fuschia and pleated tiered detailing. I love how soft the dress is and the way it flows beautifully in the summer breeze. I decided to wear the nude wedges and tan purse by Rebecca Minkoff to keep the look casual. The dress would also look incredible with black accessories for an evening attire.

Goodbye summer, hello fall! It is that time of year to prepare yourself for cooler weather and new clothing options. However, it is simple to transition from summer to fall with key fashion pieces. September tends to be a fickle month ranging from warm days to cooler nights. Here are ways to style some fall looks without buying a whole new wardrobe and wearing your summer favorites just a tad longer! I provided links to similar looking pieces in case you want to recreate the look.
Summer to Fall transitional looks:
1) In outfit one, I chose a summer dress in a leopard print and threw on a loose black kimono sweater. To make it more fall appropriate, I added red pointed heels and a soft black and gold chain clutch. This outfit is perfect for an evening date!
2) Outfit two, I took my classic denim and white tee shirt to a new level by pairing it with a thick checkered sweater. For shoes, I went for black booties that are comfortable and just spells fall! This is a great look for a casual day walking through the farmers market, to a movie night.
3) Look three is my favorite loaded with personality. I am not ready to retire my mint green taffeta skirtjust yet so I threw on a button down gray sweater with jeweled beading on top. I buttoned the sweater all the way down except for the last three and used the excess material to tie the sweater into a tight knot leaving a very chic finish. This is so perfect for a girls day shopping or for a much-needed coffee chat.
I love this option of styling. It allows me to save my fashion budget for October, November, and December where the climate is cooler and there are tons of fun fashion options to indulge in.
