Layering is key for summer to fall transition

Today I want to present another of my summer to fall transition outfits. The printed dress has multiple colors. Thus, it is easy to add a variety of my cardigans. Here I took a black cardigan and black tights to get the insulation needed on a fall day in Fairbanks. I accessorized with my fall sandals that pick up a color of the dress and the bag.

Fall lasts just a month in Fairbanks. Thus, I do not invest in fall clothes, but try to get away with a combination of summer and winter clothes.

What about you? Do you mix and match items from the warm and cold season in one outfit? What is your style challenge in the time of summer to fall transition? Let me know by email, so I can help you.

Top of the World Style linkup-party

Thanks to those of you who linked up last week. It was a big, great party. The Readers’ Fav OOTD goes to the link you clicked the most. This week it was Rachelle’s from Pink Sole. Her utility vest is a real must-have this fall. My fav was the OOTD from Jess from Elegantly Dresses and Stylish. Well, it is probably rather an outfit of the night (OOTN), but this red lace gown is a dream. Jess looks like a celebrity in front of that wall! Don’t you think so? Heide Klum couldn’t have modeled that dress better than Jess. 😉
