How to Transition Summer Dresses into the Fall

How to Style & Transition Summer Dresses into the Fall - Sarah Camille's Scoop - SCsScoop.com

Labor Day has passed and that means the unofficial start of fall has begun! And while it still feels very much like summer in Northern Virginia right now, fall fashion will be here in full force before we know it. You may be tempted to pack all your summer clothes away, but you can get much more out of your wardrobe when you keep a few summer items out as the seasons change. Some pieces clothes can be styled for fall weather more easily than others. One of my favorite summer pieces to wear into the fall are those pretty, bright floral dresses I love wearing all summer. They’re too fun to pack away just yet, so let’s dive into some tips on how to transition summer dresses into the fall!

Before we get into the tips, here is the dress styled for summer. I got this yellow floral dress because I loved the wrap style, length and sleeves. During the summer, I have worn this dress with the sleeves pushed up. I also paired the dress with light, neutral accessories.

Tips to Transition Summer Dresses into the Fall

As the weather gets colder, here are the two main things I will do to style and transition my summer dresses for fall:

  1. Switch lighter accessories for darker ones. This includes my jacket, purse and shoes. As you can see below, the pieces I switched out and the jacket I added are all darker. This helps make the whole look feel more appropriate for fall
  2. Opt for heavier or bulkier pieces. The purse and shoes I’m wearing for fall have a heavier more substantial appearance. This creates a more appropriate look for fall.

I chose a blue jean jacket and red purse to style for my fall look because they play off the colors in the dress. The thicker, heavier sandals I am wearing can also be switched for booties when the weather gets even colder.

There are similar dresses here and here.

Affordable Find Alert!!  The red bag I’m wearing is a dupe for the much more expensive Celine version. It is available on Amazon for 10% of the designer price tag. I was intrigued by all the good reviews and it has lived up to all of them!

I would love to hear how you transition summer dresses or other pieces into the fall. Do you have a similar floral dress from the summer you’ll wear into the fall? What are your favorite pieces to get you through the summer to fall transition? Let’s chat in the comments!

Cheers!

My Travel Look + The Most Interesting Podcast Episodes I’ve Heard Lately

Life has been pretty busy recently, and we have had lots of road trips. Last weekend, we went to California to Will’s brother’s wedding which involved a cross-country flight and a few hours in the car. With that trip and several other road trips this summer, I have burned through A LOT of podcast episodes. But a few particularly interesting podcast episodes stand out. So today, I am revealing these share-worthy podcasts and my travel look from the weekend.

But first, a couple of shots from our California adventure…

The 5 Most Interesting Podcast Episodes I’ve Heard Lately

When it comes to podcasts, I think I am pretty picky. Most of all, I enjoy listening to entertaining, intriguing people talk about their personal experiences, relationships and things that impact the way we all coexist in this world. I love hearing about something new. Add a bit of drama or something unusual, and I’m sucked in. If this sounds at all like some of the criteria that goes into your podcast picks, you should check out the episodes I’ve shared!

Emotional LaborDear Sugars

This podcast episode highlights the invisible work that is done most often exclusively by wives and girlfriends. There’s a never-ending list of things women are taught to handle from a young age: making the grocery list, coordinating with the babysitter, making food for the party, scheduling a get-together with family and keeping track of all the appointments. The list goes on! What I found most interesting about this episode was how most men were oblivious to the invisible work discussed and how these social constructs seem to be shifting now that most adult men and women are working full-time jobs in the U.S.

Katie Couric on Death & Dishonesty – Death, Sex & Money

In this interview, Katie Couric opens up about her first marriage and how they dealt with his diagnosis and ultimate death. She shares a valuable perspective on what it’s like to see someone you love dying and how you keep moving forward, while allowing space to grieve.

Sharing DNA and Nothing Else  – Death, Sex & Money

Have you ever thought of taking a mail-in DNA test? Amy did just that and the results she got rocked her world. This is a fascinating podcast episode about family dynamics and what it really means to call someone family.

Rip It Life: Building Your Dream Career & Still Enjoy Life with Al GoldmanThe Confused Millennial

Are you the type of person to pick-up your bags and move across the country in one week’s time? I can’t say for sure that I am, but I loved hearing how fellow 20-something Al Goldman did this, all while making big career moves and maintaining a work-life balance. Al and Rachel, of the Confused Millennial, have a refreshing discussion about the importance of being as passionate for your career as you are for the life outside of your 9 to 5.

Jimmy Fallon Will Never Make Fun of YouHere’s The Thing with Alec Baldwin

The one and only Jimmy Fallon has a candid chat with Alec Baldwin about his rise to fame. He shares a lot of interesting insights about his life. And unsurprisingly, this is a really fun and entertaining podcast to listen to. It’s perfect if you could use a laugh and some motivation for achieving your dreams!

Here’s The Thing with Alec Baldwin is a great podcast for movie buffs, since Baldwin has a lot of personal interviews with various Hollywood insiders. Death, Sex & Money is my all-time favorite podcast. I have been listening to it for several years and always find the stories refreshing and entertaining. In contrast, Dear Sugars and The Confused Millennial are the two most recent podcasts I have started listening to that I love. Dear Sugars shares letters from around the country to kickoff conversations that mostly circle around relationships and social constructs. The Confused Millennial has a lot of episodes about living your best life, from career to self-improvement, and the host Rachel keeps things real!

Travel Style & The Most Interesting Podcast Episodes I’ve Heard Lately - Sarah Camille's Scoop - SCsScoop.com

Here’s my airport look from our travels last weekend!

Top (Similar) | Sweatshirt (Similar) | Ripped Jeans | Slide-on Sneakers | Suitcase | Bag (Similar) | Bracelet | Sunglasses

The slide-on sneakers I wore were perfect for the airport! They come in a modern metallic grey, that has just enough shine to spice up your outfit and they are super comfy! I always have to travel with a sweatshirt or sweater too. What do you prefer to wear at the airport?

I love listening to podcasts during my commute and travels most of all. So, I’m curious to hear when you listen to podcasts and what you’ve been listening to.

What is the most interesting podcast episode you have heard lately?

Have you listened to any of the episodes I shared, or any of the podcasts in general?  What type of podcasts do you like to listen to? Let’s chat in the comments!
