Braid on Braids: Easy Autumnal Layering

Sweater- H&M
Dress- Thrifted
Rings- Forever21
Boots- Payless (WHAT?! I know, I know)

Autumnal layering is here! One of my favorite (and easiest) ways of transitioning summer clothing to fall is throwing a sweater on top of a dress. Most of the time no one even knows! I got quite a few compliments on my "skirt" when I wore this. Little did they know I was quite the trickster and it was a dress I'd worn when it was also 80 degrees out! This usually works best for dresses that already have a muted or fall color palette, but it might be a fun challenge to see how you could dress a summer colored piece for the coming months.

As the days go on, I'm realizing slowly that I'm going to need to invest in a pair of thicker (read: warmer) tights. It's already getting chillier here at school faster than it would at home and I have a feeling my $5 Walmart tights aren't going to cut it for the snow. Does anyone have an recommendations for tights that won't make my wallet scream out?

  11. Love this sweater! I live in the AZ desert so winter for me usually just means layering over summer dresses, but it's great because it gives you new ways to wear them without getting bored! Cute look!
