It’s just now starting to feel like fall in California. Temperatures actually fell below 70 degrees this week! Finally! This long awaited, transitional weather doesn’t mean that I’m storing away all my relatively new summer (or even late summer) dresses just yet. In fact, I’ve been obsessed with layering trousers and denim underneath my favorite midi and maxi frocks. Not only does the right pair of jeans tone down the femininity of a summery dress, it keeps those legs warm on those chillier days. I personally prefer ankle length or cuffed boyfriend denim. And also, be sure that the dress is looser fitting – drop waisted or wrap dresses work great. If it’s a button down, experiment with keeping the bottom open to expose those blues!
