Though the exciting back-to-school feeling is usually associated with the changing of the season, cooler temps, and leaves falling, the weather doesn’t tend to cooperate. Despite the almost unbearable 85 degree weather today, I wanted to incorporate fall fashion into my outfit. This Brandy Melville dress and these Forever 21 sandals are the perfect dark wine/eggplant hues to get me in the fall mood without causing me to sweat to death. The light fabric of the slip dress is airy enough for the September humidity, and has an open back making it an easy garment for a night on the town. However for class, I wore a light shrug in a neutral, oatmeal color to offset the burgundy colors and make the ensemble school-appropriate. Opting for earthy color tones helps match outfits to the autumn season, while still keeping cool comfort in mind.
Let’s hope for fall weather soon!
