The urban phenomenon of “gridlock,” where traffic comes to a standstill across a network of intersecting streets, is no fun. The fashion phenomenon of intersecting patterns is, on the other hand, a playful way to mix up your wardrobe in a fresh new way.
So here’s one last look at dressing up a Summer maxi dress and taking it straight into Fall. Confession: I bought this lovely violet maxi to wear to a wedding but decided to go with a something else when the weather turned cool (and I hadn’t unpacked this sweater or booties!). If you have an early Fall wedding, big party or even special date night planned, I think this outfit would be perfect. And, it combines key fashion trends that show no sign of cooling off — the midi or maxi dress, violet/lavender/lilac, a chunky knit sweater and white booties.
Happy Fall, y’all! Today is officially its first day, and there’s actually a refreshing crispness to the air that wasn’t there last week. And I’m loving it! But since it’s still early days, I want to get extra fashion mileage out of some of my favorite summertime frocks. More specifically, the midi and maxi dresses a lot of us lived in. It just feels too soon to say goodbye until next year. So, let’s not. Let’s transition those dresses straight into Fall with just a few simple steps. Are you ready to Frock Around the Clock?
So here in JC the sun shined for like a hot second. Then a BomboGenesis blew in (again!). Wind, snow, rain, cold. In the Northeast, March is the month that can’t make up its mind. (If you live in a warmer, milder climate I might hate you…) But rewind back to this shoot. I was thrilled at the idea of sneakers and not boots, and OK, maybe a coat. But it could stay unbuttoned. And let’s hear it for white jeans whenever, wherever. (In case you forgot, this is going to be a Shop My Closet month. And shop I did.)
