I’m back with another versatile style post. Today I’m featuring this darling Alice & Olivia dress that you can wear now and later once it actually starts to feel like fall.

For an 80 degree day like today. I just accessorized this dress with some of my favorite summer accessories. This dress has quite a bit going on with several colors and patterns so I wanted accessories that were simple but would  still pop. My white floral earrings were a perfect way to give the dress a summery feel along side my favorite basket bag and the white definitely pops against all the color. I’m wearing sandals but a nude heel would quickly dress this up for a summer brunch, wedding or shower!

As you can see, I’m not planning to put this dress away once the temps cool down. As I shared in this post, I love throwing sweaters over my summer dresses to give them a whole new look and transition them into the next season! For this dress I picked a cropped sweater (one of the tips I shared in this post) because it hits right at my natural waistline. Finding the right sweater is kind of just a matter of playing around with different pieces in your closet. This was probably the 4th or 5th sweater I tried on with the dress. I always try to get the sweater to hit right where the waistband of a high waisted skirt would hit. You can belt it like I did in this post and pull some of it over the belt to help shorten the sweater up if you need to. As for shoes, I went with a slouchy fall camel boot. The camel boots and colors of the dress look so rich together! You could also pair this with a pair of white sneakers if its still not cold enough for boots or even pumps if you’re wearing it to the office!

What way do you like this dress best? For now or later?
