OOTD: My Summer to Fall Dress – Summer Style

September 4, 2016

A few weeks ago I decided to purchase a wrap dress as a transition piece for fall to summer. When I look for dresses that will transition from summer to fall/winter, I look for one that is short enough to wear with tights as it gets colder and one in a color and/or print that would lend well to the fall season. While I had originally imagined that fall look (black tights, scarf included), I had the opportunity to wear it in its summer version today as I hung out at my parents’ for a boat ride and then dinner.

When I first spotted this ASOS Curve wrap dress, the color and price were what I noticed first. At $32, this dress is cheaper than most plus size companies’ prices for a sweater. I tend to go for jewel colors in the fall, so this shade of green-blue was right up my alley. I didn’t realize the wrap was a faux wrap, as it is sewn in, but I was happy to discover this, especially because the length is a little shorter than what I usually wear.

I accessorized the look with a couple different pieces: gold jeweled sandals from the Nine West outlet, a gold ring from ASOS Curve, a shell bar necklace from Charming Charlie (similar), and cat eye sunglasses from BP at Nordstrom. I’m really, really into these sunglasses, and I highly recommend stopping by the junior’s section in Nordstrom to look at sunglasses and jewelry if you’re ever in there to shop.

The dress is definitely shorter than I am used to. In fact, I was thinking this is the first time I’ve seen my knees in a pic outside of a swimsuit in awhile. The length can feel uncomfortable on me. Mostly I worry that the skirt will jump up too much when I walk and reveal my bottom half (eek). This will be fine once I’m wearing it with tights, but my mom also did a quick check for me, and it seems to be more in my head than actually happening in reality.

If you’re looking for a comfortable and affordable wrap dress, I definitely recommend this piece. ASOS Curve sometimes runs large, and that works for people like me who wouldn’t typically fit in their size range.  I recommend sizing down a size or two from your typical size that you would wear at Torrid or Lane Bryant. I will share my fall styled look for this dress in a couple months or whenever it cools down enough for tights.

P.S. The pups were on hand to “assist” with my attempt to take pictures, but they ended up completely ignoring me.

    I like the idea of a dress that can transition into the fall. That is what I do with my maxis. I will throw on a t shirt underneath and a sweater, maybe some boots and there you have it! The wrap and the sunglasses are good buys and you look good in them.
