Five Tips: Dressing for Hot Fall Days...

Fall. Like most women, fall is my absolute favorite time of year. Not only for the cinnamon desserts, football games, and cooler weather; but, also for the fashion! Unfortunately, South Carolina hasn't gotten the memo yet on our fall desires. Pumpkins line our store entrances, Trade Joe's has their fall desserts stocked, and Target dollar spot has a host of Halloween items; yet, the thermometer continues to read high 80s-low 90s. How can I "dress for fall" with this continued heat wave? I've gotten a bit creative and have conjured up 5 ways to help create inspired looks while not roasting under an oversized sweater and leggings. Hope this helps my southern girls...

1. Wear a dress in a fall color
This is my go-to. Dresses are easy, comfortable, and look instantly put together. I've been seeking out greens, deep reds, and blacks that will allow me to blend in with the fall color pallet, yet stay cool. 

2. Up your fall accessories and makeup game
I often tend to switch over my white nails, shimmery high light, and pink lip for dark nails, deeper contours, and smokey eye make up during the fall time. This allows me to get into the fall spirit. I love this makeup setting stray. (Full blog post to come soon on my everyday fall make up!)

3. Tie a flannel, cardigan, or denim jacket around your waist
This trick gives the illusion of fall layers without the sweat. It allows me to incorporate prints and textures.

4. Pair a dress with ankle booties
I often will wear my favorite summer dresses as long as possible, adding layers, or fall booties to accessorize them. I love how booties and dresses look together. It often adds a bohemian and relaxed vibe, which I love. Also, this look can be very flattering and elongate your legs!

5. Add a light-weight knit

My last tip requires giving-in a little. I have a few light weight cardigans that I reach for in fall. I pair them with dresses or shorts or skirts to stay cool yet still get that cozy, layered fall vibe.  


  1. Oh, I love booties with dresses, especially in the fall! Such a great look! :)

    Enjoyed all your fall fashion tips!
