i'm here today to show you how to transition easily from summer to fall. since bright colors are right on trend for fall 2011, i decided to show you how to mix and match a brightly colored dress, making it perfect for cold days. here are some of my favorite fashion tips to help you transition seamlessly:

- layer a shirt underneath your dress. it's got a bit of a schoolgirl vibe, but it also provides coverage for bare arms. i love the preppy look, and the clean lines of a white button-down scream 10th grade math class to me.
- tights! tights, tights, tights! i can't wait for the weather to get just a bit colder here so i can start wearing tights! i have way more pairs than i care to admit, but they are the easiest way to transition a summer dress or skirt into a perfect fall piece. look for different colors and textures to bring it all together. *side note: if you do wear tights, make sure you put a slip on underneath your skirt. that way your tights won't stick to your skirt and cling where it really shouldn't.
- neutral & rich colors. fall is the time to bring out plums, deep greens and blues, and browns. pair a dark brown belt with some eggplant colored tights and an oatmeal colored blazer to tone down the brightness of the dress and make it autumn-appropriate.
- blazers. i wear blazers year-round, but i have a few that are for the colder months that i am excited to bring out. they are an easy cover up, but also provide a little bit of sass to an outfit that a cardigan just can't.
Other fall transitions include: knee-high boots, cardigans, scarves, and lots of layers. don't be afraid to layer a few pieces, but make sure that they lie correctly on your body to not cause unnecessary bulk.On that note, I want to wish you all a very happy Autumn season! Here's to football, fires, tights, and hot apple cider!
