Transitioning Summer Wardrobe to Fall

I hate the idea of losing half of my closet twice a year when the seasons change.  Why can't I wear my favorite white shoes in the winter?  My favorite Rebecca Taylor dress should not only get the privilege of coming out when the thermometer reaches 80 degrees.  So I took some advice from Meagan at spunky chateau on how to extend my spring and summer clothes through the next several months.

Dress: Xhiliration
Jacket: Talbots
Tights: Old Navy
Shoes: Jessica Simpson
Belt: thrifted
Necklace: H&M




I followed rules 1 and 2 here by pairing my summer dress with tights and layering with a light jacket.  
What are some other tips for extending your wardrobe?

Oooh, I love the pattern mixing! I don't own a lot of pattern so I haven't had many opportunities to play with mixing.

I'm adding you to the BBCA list of participants right now - don't worry about it being late in October, any time is great! So glad you can join us! :)

I love layering my button-downs under a dress. It looks kinda school girl funky.

p.s. Followin' you, love that you are so bold when it comes to dressing up!
