Smooth Transition

This time of year yields peculiar weather. The day begins cool, by 3 p.m. the temperature has risen 20 degrees, and then it drops by 15 in the evening. On days like these, layering becomes a fashion art form, and if it’s done right, one outfit can take you from morning to night.

The easiest way to pull it off is to make a flirty dress the foundation of your look. I love the vintage feel and the on-trend, airy silhouette of Joie’s floral Kapri Dress. Layer on a cardigan by James Perse and a scarf by Love Quotes for morning; then ditch them in the afternoon heat. As the temperatures drop with the setting sun, use the scarf as a shawl for a perfectly evening-worthy look.
