Remixing a Summer Dress for the Fall

FLORAL DRESS - Old Navy
FAUX LEATHER JACKET - Loehmanns
CHAIN NECKLACE - Downtown LA Fashion District
GRAY WEDGE BOOTIES - Jeffrey Campbell

HOW I WORE IT IN APRIL:
DENIM VEST - American Eagle
LEATHER WRAP BRACELET - Made by my mom
PINK PEEP-TOE HEELS - Seychelles
Recently, my sister Polka Dots went out and when she came back Princess Sparkles asked her what she did.  Polka Dots told her she saw "The Help."  Sparkles asked if she too could see the movie with her Auntie but Polka Dots told her "probably not" since they said some bad words.  Princess Sparkles replied, "Like what?"  Then she whispered, "Did they say... I don't like Jesus?" 

Today for the fashion challenge from Megan Mae Daily and Casual Chic Kiki, I'm remixing a summer dress for the fall.  I decided to wear my $6 floral dress from Old Navy and my favorite Jeffrey Campbell booties (or "skates" as Princess Sparkles calls them) which I actually think you can wear year-round!

Pigtails photobombs my pic
It's been a busy week with Polka Dots around and Princess Sparkles' birthday.  I have something cool I've been meaning to share with my blog friends though I think I'll wait until I finish the fashion challenge to tell everyone.  I also received a couple really cool awards from some blog friends and can't wait to post those too!

Anyway, I'm not especially loving the heat.  It was difficult to remix this dress for the fall in 90+ degree weather (luckily I snapped these photos earlier in the morning).  I hope it starts to cool off soon, otherwise I too might be saying some bad words :)

The photo bomb picture is great!

Love both ways you wore the dress. The $6 price tag is even better!

Love the remix for fall - it's just perfect. And that is such a great dress - even more so for only $6!!

I like the dress with the jacket, and Princess Sparkles sounds adorable.

Great remix for Fall. I adore your faux leather jacket and it's perfect with a floral dress. You look so chic. BTW- love the little pic w/Pigtails, she's adorable.

Did they say I don't like Jesus...THAT is precious.

You look fantastic! I love how you made it work for fall...even though it's not quite fall yet.

Tara said...

I literally (said like Rob Lowe on Parks & Rec, if you watch that show) laughed out loud at the 'don't like Jesus' comment...I think you're girls might be some of the cutest I've ever seen :)

Love both ways you wore this dress and your boots are the first pair of Jeffrey Campbell boots I actually like! Your photo bomber is so adorable! Ha ha

We can switch states because we have rain and cold weather over here in PA! :)

I seriously need it to be less than 100 degrees. It's killing me. Soon, my closet is going to be filled with all summer clothes.

I'm impressed with your ability to wear a jacket at all today! I think I was in a tank top all day long.
Love those boots. Can't wait for 'boot weather' to finally come our way. :)

Princess Sparkles is really adorable! I love that first outfit! The dress and the jacket look great together! :) I'm curious about that cool thing you wanna share. :)

Callie said...

Little ones are oh so adorable - both their questions and their photo bombing habits. In other news, I really love the season remix you did for this dress! The floral print is wonderful and you look ready for fall in that wonderful leather jacket and the booties. Perfect!
