Happy Thursday everyone!

So I'm a little behind, but wanted to share my Outfit of the Day (OOTD) with you all!

Summer may be coming to a close, but with all the warm weather that will continue probably into late October, mixing darker colored dresses and some fall-like accessories can be a great way to jump into the season early while still remaining cool and comfortable! It isn't time to pull out those knitted scarves, dark jeans, and leather boots yet! Links to outfit pieces are down at the bottom!

The look:

What is great about a darker floral print like this is that it definitely can be worn in the fall as well. Add some black leggings or tights and leather boots or booties & some accessories and you automatically have a brand new look! These bandeaus are a staple in my wardrobe (I have them in multiple colors!). They may be a little pricey, but they have lasted me years. There are also tons of more affordable options at BP in Nordstrom & other places.

As for accessories, I kept it simple today with just a Michael Kors gold watch and a black felt hat (my latest purchase that I'm OBSESSED with).

I was doing a lot of walking yesterday so I had changed my shoes into the always comfortable Rainbow Sandals, but prior to walking, I was wearing the most comfortable sandals I own, my Sam Edelman 'Gigi' sandals in the Saddle Leather color. And when I'm walking around & don't want to be carrying a super bulky purse, I love using my black Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Classic Q Natasha - Mini' Crossbody Flap Bag.

Hope you all like this look! You can definitely re-create this look with less expensive pieces, look at Forever 21! I love that place!
