Fall Trends with LuLu's: Winterizing Summer Pieces

Mixing summer pieces with winter items

It's hot, it's cold, it's hot again, then cool, but warms up again - this is the midwest at every turn of the season.  By September, I'm so ready to pack away every last summery piece and pull out sweaters, long-sleeve dresses, cardigans, hats, booties, scarves, but I have to make myself hold off, ease those pieces out slowly. And while you might be sick of your summer duds, it can be kind of fun to mix them with your new or freshly unpacked fall pieces.  Today, as part of our partnership with LuLu*s, Meagan and I are showing you how to mix the two seasons and winterize a summery piece.

For me, my favorite summer item is nothing but the sundress. Light, breezy, cool and available in a billion different colors and prints. I love this LuLu's summer dress, and never would have worn it without leggings (because it's pretty short), so fall's cooler temps gave me the opportunity to layer faux-leather leggings underneath and a light sweater atop. Overall, this outfit works because of the mixed textures help winterize the breeziness of the dress.

How are you carrying on your favorite summer pieces into cooler weather?
