If you live in California, you understand the struggle of trying to dress seasonally appropriate during the early fall months...when its still 79 degrees outside. I know, I know, we shouldn't complain that we have perfect weather all year long, but it really is unfortunate when you want to wear boots and scarfs and you're sweating!
Here's the trick: let your legs breathe. I know, sounds strange. Today's outfit is a perfect example of this. I paired my favorite semi-summery striped Francesca's dress with a dark chambray shirt (unbuttoned) to add a layer and make this dress look more fall appropriate. I wore my new Sole Society booties and added a cute burnt orange scarf to the mix to spice up the look with some fall festive colors and added a few shiny touches of gold in my necklace, rings and bracelet.
PS I have to share my obsession with Francesca's lately, not only do they have adorable clothing & accessories at a really good price, they have the best customer service! They have started this new initiative to giveback to their best customers & fran fans, its called #FranLove! They send FREE Francesca's items to customers who engage with them on social media telling them about how much they love their brand! How awesome is that! This dress is actually a #franlove gift! Next time you're rocking any Francesca's top, necklace, or dress make sure you post a photo and hashtag #FranLove. You never know, you might just get a little something at your door step!
