Transitioning outfits through the seasons

When Jean sent me this pretty wrap dress from her eco-boutique this summer, I knew it was perfect for transitioning into autumn. I’ve styled it with a black velvet blazer (thrifted) and black bamboo tights (from Jean’s store). Booties are thrifted.

It’s such an easy way to just add a jacket or cardigan and wear a camisole underneath, warm tights and booties. This way I get more use out of my dresses and skirts with no need to pack them away for the winter.

One of the things I love about getting dressed is creating different looks with a piece of clothing. Every morning my body is like a blank canvas and I enjoy the art of composing an outfit for whatever the occasion (I’ll be wearing it to church).

Happiness is finding joy in what you have!

  1. Hi, Carmen – I agree it’s a joy to take what we have and create new looks with it. You look awesome in this outfit. And thanks for reminding me to pull out that navy floral dress and use it! – Angie, http://www.yourtrueselfblog.com

      Thanks so much! This is my Sunday outfit for tomorrow. The blazer goes with everything and because it’s velvet, it looks so luxurious. It was only $6.

  3. Hi Carmen , the dress is very pretty , similar in print to two I have ! You did great finding that blazer in a thrift store, I love them, you never know what you will find . The dress transitions easily when like you did add a camisole , and tights are great this time of year. The booties are a very cute finishing touch. You are the best artist I know to create an outfit from a blank canvas. Have a nice Friday, Terri xo.

    This is so important Carmen. We can use the things we already have and make them work for so much more than we think.
    I love this!!

      Thanks very much Jodie! It makes me happy to get more use out of dresses in my closet; my next post will be another dress that transitions beautifully.

    I love your dress, I love the delicate print and the outfit that you have configured. I love the jacket and accessories and I love to see you model, because you are the one who turns any look into something wonderful. I love your hairstyle, your beautiful hair and that smile that makes your blog something different from everything.
