A Touch of Summer for Fall

If you're like me, you enjoy the transition from Summer to Fall but still wish you could carry the Summer around with you. Well fashionistas, you can- at least in the style world! That Summer floppy hat you have that you thought about retiring? Don't! You can create a fabulous Fall look by using a sun hat with some classic Fall pieces. Hats are not just for blocking the sun. They add class and style to almost any look, and can protect you from other seasons' inclement weather.

In this first look, I chose a simple red dress from my existing wardrobe, added a thick belt and paired it with some ankle boots and scrunched up knee socks- a look that is becoming popular this season. This is a great way to add some Fall appeal to your look. I added a touch of Summer with the sun hat and the bright bangle (that you can win!- check the bottom of this post for details). I topped off the look with a fun, colorful cross necklace and some gold bangle earrings.


In this second look, I also pulled pieces from my closet and created a more rugged looking ensemble. A pair of jeans, a plain white tank top and a fun off the shoulder top make this look chic and funky. The hat adds a touch of class and the bangle, a touch of color. A fab Fall look that makes me think "Kentucky Derby."
