If there is one season that I find difficult and yet pleasing to tackle, it’s this transition period between summer and fall. I previously mentioned that it’s one of my favourites, especially as the temperature and the sunshine remain friendly and rains and moody days are not that frequent. Despite all that, summery frocks are no longer doing their job to shield us in the windy mornings and chilly evenings and sandals and flip flops are becoming shy in doing our legs any favour.
So, what to do? Well, take that pretty, floral or colourful dresses you have spent all your summer pay checks on, add a pair of ankle boots, slippers, ballet shoes or brogues, pour a cashmere cardigan, a denim jacket or a structured blazer and you are set… For example, take the three dresses, and combine them with the suggestions featured by asos.com ( the karen millen suede ankle boot, the won hundred slippers, the vivienne westwood for melissa divine ballet shoes) , topshop.com ( the maze woven lace up shoes, the MOTO blue denim jacket) and net-a-porter.com (the etioloa striped woven jacket by malene birger).
