Fashion Friday- Early Fall Scarf

Happy Fashion Friday!

We are slowly transitioning to fall weather in the mountains.  Temperatures have been cool in the mornings, and warm in the afternoons.  It’s such a pretty time of year.

Sometimes I find it challenging to get the perfect look in early fall.  I’m not ready for boots yet, and frankly it is way too warm for that still, but I definitely want to give a more fallish vibe with my outfits.

One of my favorite ways to embrace the new season is dressing up a neutral colored summer dress for fall.

This navy dress is one of my absolute favorites and works well from spring to fall.  I add a light sweater and light scarf to warm it up.  I also switch out to close toe flats this time of year.

If it gets too warm in the afternoon, you can easily take off the accessories, and you still have a polished look.

It’s an easy way to get more wear out of some of your summer wardrobe and look perfectly styled for this transitional time.

    Still to warm for the boots here but I do love a scarf! I just bought a new one on my girl’s weekend that I picked up at the Loft and threw it in my bag for Italy. Good thing, temps varied from 55-80 degrees so it was perfect!

    I haven’t pulled out the boots yet, but I’m sure I will soon! I’m loving this fall weather, especially for running!

      It’s perfect for running! I ended up pulling out my rain boots this weekend! After such a dry summer, the rain is nice for a change!

    I have not dug the boots out…yet, but they are coming! Love a good scarf, a great way to change up an outfit!

      Thanks Sue! It ended up raining here this weekend, so I pulled out my rain boots!

    I’m not a fan of cold weather, but I love scarves…and have way too many…so it’s the only reason I embrace cold weather! Cute outfit!

      I could not agree more! I’d be happy to live in spring/summer clothes year round!

    Super cute! I’ve only worn a scarf once this year so far. I have not worn any boots. We’ve had mornings in the 50s, but it’s been in the mid 70s-80s in the afternoon so still too hot! Have a wonderful weekend!

    Oh you and your stylish self! I do love to pair scarves with things though. It just pulls an outfit together, you know?

    It is still pretty warm in the Richmond area. I have been wanting to wear boots and sweaters but by noon I’m always roasting! haha I love your outfit! Thanks for linking up at Favorite Fashion Friday!

      Totally! It’s been raining here all day so the rain boots might come out for dinner tonight!

    Cute dress! I have not wore boots yet this yr. There will be plenty of time for that soon enough.

    • JulieWunder September 25, 2015 at 5:12 pm - Reply

      I agree! I try not to bust them out too early… but after the solid 24 hours of rain we’ve seen today I think I’m pulling out my rain boots for dinner 🙂

    Wee! I’m so ready for scarves :). Love this whole look, as always.

    It’s perfectly cool in the evenings, but not cool enough during the day for boots. I’m really ready for it though. I’ve been wearing a lot of sweaters recently.. chunky sweaters make it feel like fall in my mind! Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

    • JulieWunder September 25, 2015 at 5:10 pm - Reply

      Me too! I’m feeling the need to sweater shop!

    I love that scarf–those colors are so pretty! <3

  17. I always find it challenging this time of year. Yes too warm for boots and I never feel like I am wearing the right shoes. I don’t wear heels to much anymore with all my foot issues. I am still wearing my Birkenstocks. 🙂

    • JulieWunder September 25, 2015 at 5:05 pm - Reply

      I def don’t wear heels as much anymore and if I do, I’ll keep flats in the car 🙂

    Love you in those colors! I agree–breaking out the scarf means it is definitely fall time! I love a good pashmina!

    No boots for me yet either, it’s been too warm. Love that dress and scarf!

    Beautiful fall look Julie.
    It is important to be able to do layers this time of year with such
    significant temperature change at different times of the day.
