Concrete Catwalk // Florals for Fall

October 21, 2013


Trying to navigate dressing for this “seasonal limbo” time of year, and I know it probably sounds nerdy, but I get such a kick out of using unexpected pieces to help me ease into the change in weather.  (Did it last week, too – Shorts in the fall, and I’m on a ROLL.)

Ordinarily I’d save a flowy floral dress for a sunny afternoon (last wore this one to the polo classic last year), but I paired with a cozy sweater and leather jacket for a brunch outing with friends last weekend, and loved that it added a little something special to a  cloudy morning.

Click through for the rest of the look, and tell me how you’re transitioning your favorite pieces into fall… I’d love to use some of the best ideas in an upcoming post, so weigh in and I’ll share your thoughts here on S&P!

    Jessie I love a biker jacket over a floral dress for autumn!! Yours is so pretty – you remind me of a 1970s Jane Fonda… the hair looks gorgeous that length BTW!

    LOVE this post! I feel like it’s so difficult figuring out what to wear these days in the Big Apple, as it’s chilly in the morning, and then pretty warm in the afternoon. I love how you’re incorporating those summer pieces with your fall pieces. Perfect look! :)
