How to make your summer dresses work for fall...

Isn't it a beautiful moment when you finally find that beautiful and fresh dress to frolick around during the warm summer months?

You buy it in June anticipating the days to come when you simply run out of style creativity and need a quick thing to just pull over your body. It turns out to be your go-to outfit during the excruciatingly hot July and August days when you need something lightweight to put on.

Yet as the cooler months roll around that sweet and simple dress is no longer appropriate for the colder weather. As much as you love the dress you accept the let-down and see to the fact that you will not be able to wear this dress again until next summer.

WRONG! You can always adapt your summer dresses to work in the fall and winter!

In my case, I added my favorite ZARA cardigan and warm, woolly stockings to keep myself bundled up whilst still being able to sport my favorite summer dress!

VOILA!!! What a transformation!

SPANISH: Nunca dudeis que no vais a poder poneros vuestros vestidos veraniegos favoritos durante los meses frios!! Siempre se puede transformar la ropa para que valga para todas las epocas! En este caso, escoji mi vestido favorito de ZARA que use mogollon durante el verano y lo combine con mi jersey alargado favorito de ZARA y unas medias super calentitas. Lista para salir al frio polar de Nueva York jaja! ;)

FRENCH: C'etait vraiment possible que vous pouvait porter votre vestementes preferes de l'ete pendant l'hiver!!! Seulement ajoute-la une simple cardigan et une ceinture et voila!! Tres facile et vous serez comfortable pour l'hiver dans votre robe préférée d'été!!

Also, I've gotten many compliments on how beautiful the scenery is where I take my pictures. Thanks! It's my backyard ahahah. I'm sorta limited as to where to shoot my pictures because I come home from school exhausted and force my mom to come take pictures of me outside. (She is such an angel!) SO yeah, thanks for complimenting our landscaping, woohoo!!


He recibido unos cuantos comentarios diciendo que que bonito es el lugar donde saco mis fotos. GRACIAS!! Es la parte de atras de mi casa jajaja. Cuando llego a casa de la escuela estoy super cansada y no tengo a donde ir asi que obligo a mi madre que salga afuera a sacarme unas fotitos. (Ella es un angel por soportarme tooooodos los dias a sacarme fotos por aqui y fotos por alla...) . Y mucha gente piensa que Nueva York es solo ciudad! Manhattan no es el estado entero! New York tiene unos paisajes tremendos y tengo la suerte de poder vivir tan cerca de la ciudad (solamente cojo el trencito) y tambien de poder disfrutar de la vida tranquila en las afueras y poder ver los cierbos y zorros pasar caminando por la ventana de mi cocina mientras como jaja. En fin, gracias, jajaa!

J'ai reçu plusieurs commentaires que le paysage où je prends mes photos est très beau ! merci ! c'est mon jardin ! haha. New York n'est pas simplement Manhattan ! il a le grand paysage aussi !

XOXO!
