Even before September arrives, it seems everyone gravitates towards fall pieces. I think we are so anxious for a new wardrobe we often forget to transition our favorite summer items into the new season.

One of the easiest and most forgotten summer pieces to bring into fall is the maxi dress. Here are a couple tips to make this maxi fall-appropriate:

1. Layers. Add neutral, lightweight layers like a oversized scarf or a loose cardigan. Layers are a great choice, especially in early fall when the weather fluctuates constantly. Removing a sweater or scarf during a particularly warm afternoon can be a much simpler solution than an entire change of wardrobe.

2. Pattern or Textures. Pick at lease one of your layers to have a varying pattern or texture. It creates dimension. For this look I went with a 
patterned scarf to add contrast. Here are some other cute patterned scarves here and here

3. Dress it Down. I opted for a cross-body bag and a floppy hat to give this look a more relaxed feel. A fedora (love this wine one) or baseball cap work great too. Casual pieces like these help create a more day friendly look.

4. Pair with Neutrals. Another trick to maximizing your summer pieces is to pair your summer hues with neutral tones. Balancing this pink dress with shades of grey makes for a great fall color scheme.  

Below are a few other pieces I love that are versatile enough to style for both warmer and cooler weather:

Work Out Wear: Weekend Style

Nike Hoodie // Nike Tee // Nike Shorts // Nike Internationalist Shoes (his favorite - under a $100) // Photos by JessaKae Photography


The best part of weekends is the lax dress code. With no pressure to dress for any special occasion, I usually opt for oversized shirts, workout pants (these are my favorite), and comfortable shoes. I like to balance neutral black and white with a few pops of neon, which made this jacket an obvious choice, especially with the seasons starting to change. I usually get my other pops of color from a cute neon sports bras. They have a great collection here. Almost all our their bras are under $15, most are in the $8-$10 range. I like them because a lot of times they do unique cut outs with the straps or mix colors to make them more unique. I have this one (love the back detailing), this one, and this one. Somehow this laid back daytime combo leaves me feeling put together yet comfortable for family walks or last minute errands.

These Nike's are one of Cody's favorite shoes. The nice thing about the Nike Internationalist sneakers is they can be worn with a workout outfit or paired with jeans or dress shorts. A great universal shoe for the man in your life.
