summer sleeves

dress: Old Navy (similar) // top (similar) & sandals: American Eagle // necklace: Forever 21 (similar)
I tried to convince myself the other day that it was cold enough to get a pumpkin spice latte because the temperature had temporarily dropped to 85°. I decided against it, knowing I'd regret starting fall too early. Instead, I let pumpkin spice inspire my outfit by adding a little fall to a bright orange dress. My work office is freezing all year round, so adding sleeves to summer looks is an easy way for me to transition without having to fully commit. 

How are you making a smooth transition into the new season?


  1. Super cute! I love this color combination! I'm trying to wear my least-cozy fall outfits right now, since it's still about 85! I think we're actually supposed to get into the 60s next week which I'm real excited about!

  2. Goodness, we had a heat wave it was almost 100 (i know thats not super hot, but its still warm) but luckily this whole week has pretty dreary. I love fall. And umm lets not forget about how stinking cute you look. Dress me please.


  3. Layering over dresses is a look that every time I see someone do it, I'm like, I need to do that! I love how slouchy and causal yet fun this outfit looks. The grey really works with the brightness of the dress!

    Today it only went up to 75, which after the heat wave we've been having here is super exciting. I have to say I'm about ready for fall fashion.


  4. Oooooh I love this! It looks so comfy and cute! I've been wanting to transition into fall too so I've worn my booties a couple times :)
    Hope you have a good weekend bloggy friend!!

  5. I love this look! For me it would be a brave move to throw a sweater on over a dress - but you've totally inspired me here :)

  6. I have tried solo many times to pull off a sweater+dress combo, but I can never get it right. You look great!

  7. I can definitely relate to the cold office! Sleeves are a must, at least in my bag!

    I was about to comment saying I love the color and fit of your skirt unless I saw the strap peaking through! That's a great idea to pair a pullover sweater over a dress! I may just have to copy your idea :)
