OOTD - Summer to Fall with a Denim Jacket and Booties

summer to fall transitional outfit

And we're back to transitional outfits on the blog! Yes, as fast as you could say "hello sun"the temperatures took a dip in Toronto and we're back into pre-fall weather. I'm having a hard time coming to terms with the fact that I will soon have to say farewell to all of my cute little summer dresses for the season, so I decided to take this mint number out for one last spin.  This mint floral dress may be my most summer-specific piece in my wardrobe, but I'm pleasantly surprised by how wearable it is in the cooler weather with a denim jacket and a pair of booties.  The moral of this little story is that you really do just need a cropped jacket and a pair of booties to take any summer dress into fall.

I know that I am now thirty and by all accounts should be a grown woman by this point, but I cannot let go of my little sundresses.  I've decided that as long as they're worn with sleeves, accompanied by flats and don't hug the bum then they can be age appropriate.  Heeled boots are the grey area.  Yes, this is what I spend my time thinking about.  What are your thoughts?

Of course Fritz needs to make an appearance as well. What do you think about my denim jacket and booties theory to transition any dress into cooler weather.  Do you have your own tricks for dressing from summer to fall?  Let me know!

  1. denim jackets are my favorite for fall!

  2. I don't own a jean jacket. I'm always terribly cold and they don't seem to do much for me in terms of comfort. Love how they look though. I need to find one with fur on the inside. lol

    1. I was totally with you on that, except I found this Zara jacket that is so soft - it totally turned me around on denim jackets!

  3. It sucks when you have to start thinking about dressing for your age!! But i think you look perfect in this outfit and I think the boots definitely work! Looking gorgeous as usual hun.


    1. Thanks Justine! I agree with you - BOOO thinking about being age appropriate!

  4. I think you've totally hit the nail on the head with this one! Jean jacket and booties are definitely the best way to start transitioning into fall! Very cute outfit Joelle!

  6. Dresses/jackets/booties are the perfect ingredients for a transition to fall outfit! I haven't been daring enough to try a denim jacket yet, but I really love how you styled this one!

    1. Thanks Morgan! I love a denim jacket to transition from summer to fall, and then switch it up for leather once the weather gets cooler.

  7. ahh yes!! denim jackets are the most versatile things ever. I love wearing them on chilly summer nights and over a dress (like you right now!!)
