Today I am excited to participate in the Side By Side Challenge hosted by 2girlsin2cities! We focused this challenge on fall transitional pieces, and I think everyone has great ideas to share. I selected this cobalt blue dress, increasingly one of my favorite numbers tucked away in my closet. I wore it here on a gorgeous summer day with a dash of pink, then added a bright pink cardigan for the office and the cooler evening. As many fellow Midwest friends know, the mornings and evenings had been so perfectly crisp and cool recently (at least prior to the last weekend) that the weather had almost convinced me it was already fall. But, false alarm…
I also included below a recap of how I styled this dress for a cold spring day earlier this year. The saturated and beautiful blue color of the dress pops nicely against some bright colors for summer and also tones down with darker pairings for a more autumn-inspired or wintry look.
Be sure to check out everyone’s Side By Side Challenge transitional looks (links above) for some seasonal inspiration as fall sneaks up all too soon. I’d love to see your transitional looks as well, so be sure to share in the comments so I can check them out!
Two items of note:
1. Don’t forget to join my Fashionably Employed Link Up that goes live each Sunday to share some inspiration about what to wear to work for the week.
2. I am currently working on a remix post with this dress to show it with myriad pairings and colors. It will be posted early next week so be sure to stop back and check it out!
