Floral Navy + Felt Hat

Here’s a transitional style for moving dresses from warm to cold months.

*Will this outfit work on your body type? All my outfits emphasize flattering an apple shape -wider shoulders/narrow hips. In this picture I am 5’1″ and starting to show my baby bump. I am petite and also have a high waist and short torso.

An Easy way to make transitional style work from summer and spring to fall and winter

In the summer, I wore this same dress with a fedora and with heels. You can check out the post here. I could either put this dress away for the fall and winter months, or I can add a few other items and viola! Transitional style.  I wore a black felt hat instead of a fedora and switched out my nude heels for knee high leather boots and tights. I added a navy blazer for an extra layer to wear under a coat. Now I can wear this dress year round.

Where you can get items similar to what I’m wearing

My boots are super comfy and are from Naturalizer.
I’m wearing a felt hat like this one. It goes with so many of my fall and winter outfits.
If you’re looking for super matte, super opaque black tights, these fit the bill.
