This is the perfect outfit to help you transition from summer to fall. It’s only July here in Central New York and after a few mild days in the 60’s I’ve already begun to think about fall weather and what comes with it – apple picking, pumpkins, rich earthy hues and sweater dresses.

Fortunately this wool blend knit dress from IKKS is the perfect transition dress. It’s short enough to keep you from overheating and thick enough to help you get through those 60 degree days. And when it gets even colder throw on a pair of leggings and a duster in a neutral shade.

And since we’re not quite ready to give up the sunshine yet, how about some fun celestial themed accessories?

First with this adorable celestial sun brooch from Avon with outstretched happy rays, charming smile and rhinestone eyes.

Let the sunshine in with this celestial brooch from Avon! Gold tone with rhinestone eyes. It’s also quite versatile and has a loop in the back making it possible to be worn as a necklace pendant.

We’ve paired this brooch for purchase with a pair of similar earrings, for pierced ears.

To complete this look we paired this outfit with a vintage box purse from the 1970’s. It sort of reminds me of a book with a latch and a strap – which will indeed add a bit of whimsy to this outfit. It measures approximately 5″ tall X 8″ wide with a 28″ strap which makes it the perfect size for small items like a wallet, cellphone, keys and compact.

Depending on the season, I’d finish this outfit off with a pair of gold sandals or booties.

I personally like a little funk with my outfits so I ‘d pair it with these AMAZING Bossanova glitter booties from Jeffrey Campbell, get them here.
