In(vest)ing in Fall Style

Dress: Dillards (old) Vest: Ebay | Necklace: Forever 21 (old) | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelet: InPink | Sandals: Zigi Soho | Bag: Michael Kors

It's that time of year where it's still summer, but it feels awkward to wear super-summery pieces. In fact, I have already started stockpiling fall clothing and I can't wait to wear them! In an effort to mix fall and summer style, I created the look above. A summery black and white striped dress (I love the puffy sleeves - it even has shoulder pads, ha!) with an army vest (remember it from this post?) and bold accessories made for the perfect compromise! How are you incorporating fall pieces into your late summer style?

  9. I was just talking about how I never wear vests because I don't know how to. However, this is such a great look paired with one. I may just have to give it a try. Thanks!

  10. You look absolutely gorgeous here, Kacie! I'm loving how you incorporated fall pieces in to your summer wardrobe. It's still beautiful in New York right now, but I can definitely feel the weather starting to shift. I'll be pairing a lot of my summer pieces with booties, tights and blazers in a few weeks!
