Remember this dress? It used to live in my spring capsule wardrobe.
Well, it made it into my fall capsule wardrobe because (1) Stripes are cool! (2) It’s made from ponte, meaning: it never wrinkles + it’s super easy to throw into a suitcase. (3) It’s versatile beyond versatile — here are all the ways I’ve styled it so far.
Anyway. Besides being one of my favs, this outfit is the perfect example of how to take a summer dress to fall: I just threw a sweater poncho on top and threw ankle boots on the bottom.
You know what I love about sweater ponchos? That they show a little of what you’re wearing underneath. The way those stripes peek through on the sides? Can’t. Get. Enough.
Another great thing about them? They’re plenty warm, but they’re an easy layer to lose. If the temperatures warm up in the afternoon (which in Texas, they most certainly will), I can easily shed the sweater poncho.
And …. guys …. the color of that bag. SO FALL.
Going to light a pumpkin candle right this minute.
