One Color Head to Toe

Need some holiday outfit inspiration?  Look no further than one color from head to toe.  Not long ago we were mixing all kinds of colors to make an outfit.  According to fall fashions, however, it's time to move on.  Less rainbow, more serious.   Instead of color blocking, it's monochrome dressing. Here are just a few ways to work this in your wardrobe. 

Closet Tip: The colors don't have to match exactly, but if you wouldn't pair them to decorate a room, don't wear them together.

How to Transition a Summer Shift Dress to Fall

I found this dress on sale at the Gap this weekend and couldn't pass it up.  Between the colorblocking and stripes and easy casual fit, it just screamed, "Take me home!" So I did.  After our initial "meet cute", however, I had to do some thinking to make sure that this dress could handle the chilly months ahead- now that we were in it together for the long haul.  

My solution?  Layering!

When Summer Shifts to Fall

Here's what it looked like on...

And the hilarious result of self-timer shots. :)

This is just one way to bring a summer staple into fall- I know you have plenty in your own closet!
