Seasonal Transitions





One of the major challenges of being a Florida Fashionista comes around the Winter season. I yearn for the super fabulous fur boots, cozy sweaters, and silky scarves (let me clarify that I don't yearn for the weather just the fashion!). But should I really spend money on an entirely new winter wardrobe? Unfortunately, the answer is no. A cold front for a week in January makes it difficult for me to justify winter purchases. Admittedly, I've had the same sweaters for about 8 years now..sad..I know. To overcome this challenge, I've figured out a few tricks to make my summer and spring outfits more wintery. For this ensemble I exchanged my summer sandals and floppy hat for a long-sleeved shirt, scarf, tights, boots and voila! It’s like I’m not even a Floridian…okay, that might be a stretch.

Fashion Tip: Toss a long-sleeved shirt and sweater over that light summer dress to transform your look into a new winter outfit. Don’t be shy about using your floral dresses either!








What I’m Rockin’:
Sandals – Purchased in Puerto Rico
Floppy hat – Bijoux Terner
Shirt – Target
Scarf  - Bijoux Terner
Tights – Target
Boots – Charlotte Russe
Necklace – Tiffany’s
Dress – Heavenly Couture

  1. I love this post! Couldn't agree more!

    It's sometimes a challenge to dress "winterized" in a warm climate (I also live in Florida) add in blogging and it can become frustrating. I think this is a perfect example of how to dress warm when it's chilly in a warmer state.

  9. This is an awesome transition! The dress is perfect on it own or as a skirt. I agree with you its hard to justify buying winter clothes when we barely get to wear them. I have a sweater or two that I literally worn once because its just never cold enough!
