Wow another Petite Fashion Challenge is here! This time it’s being hosted by Fashion For Teens
…to take traditionally summer pieces (like tank tops, shorts, mini skirts, sundresses etc.) and make them appropriate for fall.
So…I was kind of stumped on this one. I could always wear tank tops in the Fall – simple – just throw on a blazer/sweater! I am new to shorts and would not wear them in the Fall (the shorts and tights things is something I just can’t pull off) and I’m not a mini skirt girl! I decided to take one of my favorite dresses from this summer and see what I could do with it.
This dress is also my VERY first Anthropologie purchase! I just love the way this dress fits me.
Here I am in the dress on a summer night in Ottawa:
Dress Anthropologie Nathalie L’Ete size 0
Shoes: Browns ID size 7
Necklace: mark by Avon
….and here’s my take on transitioning this dress for Fall
Boots: Me Too size 7
I’m actually not sure how I feel about this outfit, I don’t think it’s something I would actually wear out but I liked the idea of wearing fall booties with a colourful printed dress. The scarf is something I’ve actually been wearing a lot. It’s the perfect accessory – it’s lightweight so it doesn’t feel too hot but I love how it drapes and creates that layered look that’s perfect for Fall!
Another fall trend I tried to incorporate was a dark lipstick. This is best done by keeping the rest of your makeup super simple. I can’t really pull this look off either right now as I think you really do need close to perfect skin – which unfortunately I don’t have at the moment. I’ve been suffering from terrible breakouts the past few months so this is not a trend I will be trying anytime soon.
