Summer Dress turned Fall Outfit

Dress: Target (old),  Boots:  Cousin Couture, Scarf:  c/o Curtsay Designs
Pictures by my super talented friend, Amber

I typically hate wearing tights....Aaaccck!!....and would prefer going out all bare legged...but the goosebumps I got the other day just weren't cutting it.  (And these tights aren't that bad).  You would think that being a dancer would make me ok with wearing tights...but that's just never going to happen. 

I took a summer dress (that I actually never wore this summer..hmm...) and turned it into a cooler weather outfit by adding all these fun fall/winter accessories to it.  

Have you transitioned any of your summer wardrobe pieces into fall outfits?

PS.  I hope you'll link up with me this Friday for November's Favorite Things!
Linking up with Shanna and The Pleated Poppy

I love this look! I'm always layering my summer dresses and accessorising them for autumn. Although we seem to have headed straight to winter!

I wouldn't even know this was a summer dress because of the way you styled it. It looks great!

Gorgeous photos Ashley! Super cute outfit. :) Before this year I never really transitioned summer outfits to fall. But now I just add turtleneck/long sleeve tee, leggings, boot socks, and riding boots and I'm good to go. Thanks for stopping by! :)

Super cute!!! It's amazing what you can do with just a cardigan! Anything can be turned into a Fall/Winter piece. Love this!

LOVE this! I like the pop of red and the booties:)

Ashlyn said...

I am all about transitioning summer pieces to winter and fall. We for have much cold weather here so the majority I my wardrobe is for the warmer months which makes transitioning a necessity.

I love your scarf and boots! So cute and they look so gret with your dress :)

Niki Caron said...

I am the same way about tights - I'd much rather have bare legs, but I do love the look of them (and warmth, definitely). I love every single thing about this outfit!!!

Megan said...

So cute!!! I love the pop of red from that adorable cowl. And call me crazy, but I love tights! Maybe it's because my legs are practically blinding so it's nice to have something to cover them up ;)

Ash said...

I die for that scarf... I have a couple of infinity scarves, but not a bright one. It's on my list! And I'm with you... I can't handle my legs being cold, for real. Love this outfit!

Alison @ Get Your Pretty On said...

Transition pieces are the best! I love how you layered this up and belted it.

Cassi Brightforest said...

it's the scarf that I die over, die. dead. death. you probably stole it from a family member, huh.

Megan said...

I love adding a cardigan and leggings to a dress to carry it over to fall/winter. I'm not a fan of tights either. :P I've always preferred comfort to fashion. :)

i love it! you look awesome, as always!

i wore tights for the first time this fall today and i kind of liked it... it made me feel a little fancy ;)

Krista said...

Gorgeous belt and great pop of color with the scarf!!! Love this look. I have a dress that is crying out to be used like this but just don't have the right sweater to wear over it. Yours looks great though!

B said...

what a fun idea! i will have to go through some of my dresses this weekend and see if any would transition well! love it!

Jess said...

Such a great look! My favorite part is how the color of your scarf really pops, but I love the gray tights with brown booties too!

Okay, this outfit is too cute! I love it! You look amazing!

Franziska said...

I hear you on the tights for dancers. After 14 years of shiny tights for recitals, I'm afraid of tights all together.

Danielle said...

Found you through the pleated poppy. I'm loving your outfit, especially the pop of red! Call me crazy but I could live in tights, there's something about them that I think is uber comfortable.

Karen said...

As a dancer I HATE wearing tights for normal life lol. If I had to wear them for dance I'm fine - but going out somewhere... ugh - they suck lol. I would rather wear a pair of leggings than tights even lol. That outfit looks awesome though :)

Emmy said...

So so cute!! And well in CA you don't have to convert too much other than brining out pants instead of shorts :)

Mona said...

You look absolutely fabulous,dear!
i love your sence of style so much!
have a beautiful day!<3

Leigh-Ellen said...

I love tights. My legs get cold at work in July so they're pretty much year round for me.
