Fall Exchanges

Traded some old-to-me for some new-to-me items, one being this thrifted lacy blue sundress.

maxi + denim

Don’t put that summer maxi dress away just yet. Warming it up with a denim jacket, loose sweater, or a pair of boots will get you some extra wear these final fall days.

Another day of baking in the desert calls for loose fitting, light fabrics. Open back or V Back tops like this one from Anthropologie (similar here) allow just the right amount of breeze in to keep things cool.

all about that stack

Stacking is the way to accessorize right now, and one summertime desert dwellers should take advantage of. Different ┬ádangles paired with a watch can add much to look at in an outfit and can make up for the absence of a summer jacket or cardigan. However, too much of a good thing can be a bad thing–I try not to go beyond 4-5 items with the wrist bling, depending on the size.
