Winterize Your Summer Styles

Sorry it has been so long since my last post dears! I was experiencing some technical difficulties, but fortunately they have been resolved now! Happy dance! I have been waiting for weeks to post this, so I hope you enjoy!
 
So fall is “officially” here but, it’s still feels a lot like summer in Austin! If you’re still rocking your summer styles but looking for a way to extend your wardrobe once fall arrives, read on.
 
We all have them. Favorite summer pieces that you’re sad to tuck away for the winter. But what if you could extend the life of your summer pieces? Good news! You can! In most cases. Here are some examples of summer 2013 trends that have been “winterized”:
 
 
 
 
 
High waisted shorts: Add a striped tee and a moto jacket with some buckle boots for a cool weather style!
 
 
 
 
      

 

 

Maxi Dresses: Top it off with a jacket and some booties in rich fall hues!

 

 

 

 

 

Floral dresses: Wear it with a moto jacket and some high heeled, low cut ankle boots!



 

 

 

 

 Jumpsuits: Add a blazer and some stylish heels for an evening out!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Harem Pants: Pop on a scarf with a sweater and some ankle booties!

 

 

 

 

So, what do you think? Will you be able to winterize some of your favorite summer styles? 

Thanks for reading! Until next time ~ Sara

The Wrap Dress

At the request of a dear reader I have put together an outfit that is flattering on any body shape.
 
The wrap dress is a universally flattering look. Popularized by Diane von Furstenburg in the 1970s, and inspired by her divorce, the design has been credited as a symbol of the women’s liberation movement. This iconic style has even been been on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The wrap dress has several key factors that make it functional and flattering on any body type. 
 
The “V” neck style elongates the torso while the wrap cinches the waistline. For the oval and rectangle shapes this helps create that visual waistline and gives the illusion of an hourglass silhouette. The “A” line skirt camouflages the lower half for the triangle shapes and adds balance and fullness for the inverted triangle. And for those who already have a natural hourglass shape, this style hugs and enhances your curves.
 
The next time you are looking for a dress, wrap yourself in one of these beauties. It’s a style that will last for years to come!

Cheers!
