A French Connection Dress and a Pair of Black Suede Zara Booties a Transitional Look for this Transitional Time of Year

By Posted on 1 min read 341 views




Summer is quickly coming to a close, fall is right around the corner and we are entering a transitional phase weather wise. What to wear during this in-between time of the year is always a challenge. I recently went on another closet purge so I can get a clear head and figure out what I really need to round out my wardrobe—and to make room for more clothes. This French Connection dress was a keeper for sure. I picked it up this past spring and was planning on wearing it this summer with gladiator flats but somehow I never got around to buying a pair. But what is nice about this dress is that it can also be worn with tights and a jacket. Here I wore it sans tights but with some black suede fall booties which I purchased at Zara and wrote about in this post. I also wore these booties to NYFW with faux black leather leggings and a sleeveless black Alice & Olivia dress—a look I hope to recreate and post for you guys when it is not 90 degrees out and I am not drenched in sweat. So what transitional pieces are you considering? Have you started your fall shopping yet? And when was the last time you did a closet purge?

    I love that top and booties. It has been kind of fall like here the last few days and I have been so happy about it. Unfortunately today begins a warm up. I would be so happy with fall weather year round.

    What a gorgeous dress, Ali and the boots looks great with it! Autumn is fully here, it’s been raining a lot and the temperature has went down considerably. I don’t mind it though, anything better than the freaking heatwave. Haha!

    You look so beautiful, Alicia. The dress is classy.
    I haven’t really shopped for Fall. I’ve some pieces in my closet I haven’t worn, so will make use of them. But if something catches my eye, you know how we do. Ha!! 🙂

    This time of the year is probably one of the most difficult times to dress for. I go with a jacket, and I’m too hot. Without a jacket, I’ll freeze. I really like your dress and the suede booties are perfect companions:)
