The leaves are continuing to fall, which means it’s inevitably going to get chilly. The thing I always seem to struggle with in the fall is how to continue to wear the summer dresses that I’ve grown to know and love all throughout summer. Finally it dawned on me. Whenever it starts to get cold (especially in the prairies, it seems we start to get colder here right after August ends), my mom would always tell me to layer (although layering to my mom is sweater, after sweater, after sweater). So, I forced my sister out of her busy life- working full time during her practicum as well as away from her study time (sorry sis, thank you and love you.) and took her to my favorite spot (and if you ask me, one of the most beautiful places in this city) to help me help you show how to wear dresses during this season.
Some dresses are made for this transition season (which makes my troubles slightly easier) just like our Estella Dress. As soon as I saw this in our store- Tonic, I fell in love immediately and knew I had to share it with you.
They can easily be worn as is, or can be paired with accessories such as our favorite hat, the Carmen Hat.
Another simple way to elevate your outfit to the next level in fall is a scarf. The thing I absolutely love about scarves is how versatile they are (if you’re anything like me, you watch those YouTube videos on how to transform your scarf into 50+ different outfits in absolute awe). This scarf, our very own Agnes Weaved Scarf is perfect for any outfit, with its neutral colours and pattern.
But, there’s another way we can further elevate this dress…
If you’re anything like myself, autumn automatically means cardigans. I adore cardigans-practically living in them all seasons (even the summer, I’ve just slowly allowed myself to adapt to the extra heat I’m forcing myself to withstand.)
And cardigans with this dress looks absolutely amazing, creating the perfect outfit while staying cozy.
Our Mae Cardigan is perfect for fall, its seriously the coziest thing I’ve ever worn.
Plaid is huge every fall. A good way to wear your favorite plaid shirt is slightly less traditional. Wear it around your waist. Doing this, it cinches in your waist while still looking awesome.
Or, if you’re slightly more traditional, wear it as a regular shirt!
The Erik Semi Long Plaid is another one of my fall favorites this season. The best part about it, is that its longer than most shirts (which makes it easier to pair with dresses!).
Another thing that has been huge this fall (and for good reason- they’re awesome) are poncho scarves. They add the perfect touch to any outfit-fancy or casual. It seems we went for the fancier approach for this outfit, which worked well in our favor as you can see, after about 40 minutes of taking pictures and 10 minutes of my sister frantically changing in the car while I tried to find a secluded area that people wouldn’t see her change, the sun set and we were going berserk trying to finish these pictures.
For this outfit, we paired the Stuck On You Dress with the Kirin Poncho Scarf to make this (accidental- but it works) “heading out on the town while still keeping warm and looking (as my sister would say) sassy” outfit.
