Zebra with Pockets

This dress is so soft and comfy. When I got it, it was a bit too big for me... but the magic of belts saved the day once again.

{Dress: c/o Wallis,  Denim Jacket: Nordstrom (old), Shoes: Madden Girl (old), Belt: Target, Bracelets: David Yurman, Forever 21}

Throw on a denim jacket and you're ready for the fall. Can you believe it's the end of August and the unofficial end of summer? Yikes, where did the time go!? While everyone will be transitioning to fall or starting to take out their fall wardrobe, I'm going to try to wear my summer items for as long as possible. Winters are long here, so I want to savor the warm weather for as long as I can!

What about you, are you excited for fall weather and clothes? Or are you still rocking those skirts and shorts?

Love a cute little dress paired with a denim jacket.


Emmylou said...

Great idea to belt the dress, Yi-chia:) And no....not looking forward to fall this year, even if I love the weather. I just feel like summer is getting shorter and shorter:(

I'm really depressed when I'm thinking that summer is over. Your look is so classy and cute. Love it!

Amy Shaughnessy said...

I think if anyone lived where I do, they would have been ready for fall a month ago. It's supposed to be 100 later this week. So sick of it. Belting that dress is a great trick. Love the jacket over it too.

Amy {Cupcakes+Couture} said...

love the zebra on you! i'm still dressing for summer and will transition with the weather...i can't wait for fall clothes but don't want to give up my summer clothes too quickly!

Lu Ross said...

This dress looks so beautiful on you! The denim jacket is perfect with this dress. I also want to wear my summer clothes as long as possible, but fall is a beautiful season and I enjoy it too (even though I don't like cold weather).


Georgina said...

I am totally with you and trying to use my Summer wardrobe as much as possible! I will miss my pretty sundresses come Fall. You look great here Yi-chia!! xo

Shira said...

Love the dress and the mint belt works perfectly and you can't tell it's big on you. I can't believe it's August but then again I work in the summer so it wasn't much of a real summer. Time is a scary thing though! Ha

Ohhh I really love this dress! So pretty..

Yay for belts! i love belts - they are even good for dresses that are a bit too tight. I've used wide belts for that purpose. You look great in your dress!

Stripes and pockets on a dress equals greatness.
I have summer all year round, I truly wish we got some fallish weather here.

Simply Evani said...

Love the dress! I am going to miss summer clothing, it's my favorite. I love leggings and boots but I hate wearing shoes for longer than I have to and boots aren't super easy to slip on and off. Lol I sounds like an adult don't I?

Frannie Pantz said...

It's still in the high 80's here in Colorado and it promises to stay that way for a while, so I don't plan on pulling out the sweaters, tights and boots until I have to! I love your dress!

What a cute dress Yi-chia. That's they fun with styling, I love belts, it has definitely had lended itself very useful in my wardrobe. xx/Madison

Ricademus said...

Pockets! That's a nice dress. I support sticking to summer wear as long as possible--people keep telling me it's going to be a bad winter. I hope it's a short one.

I'm still rocking the shorts. That's my big transition from season to season, switching from shorts and pajama shorts to pants and long-bottoms...and then back again when the time comes.

Petite Hues said...

Belts does wonders! I always say, when in doubt, put a belt on it. I can't believe we're already hitting the end of August, seems like just yesterday was just Spring.

Natalia | Fashioned by Love said...

Please don't shoot the messenger, but I really am excited about autumn. :) Not sure I'd be 100% happy to give up all of my summer wardrobe, but I do like a thought of mixing and matching. :)
Beautiful dress - I have such a soft spot for stripes. x

Kim Alston said...

Great dress and I love it paired with the denim jacket. Looks really good Yi-chia. It's hot here, so I'm still wearing my Summer clothes, but I have my eyes on Fall.

Niki Caron said...

I'm trying to make my summer wardrobe last, too! There's nothing like a denim jacket as a great transitional piece! You look beautiful as always!

nancy @ adore to adorn said...

I'm thrilled to change my style with the season but wish we had just a bit more summer! It goes so fast! In SF actually, we get summer weather for several weeks in fall so I guess I'll get to live it out just a little bit longer. =)

Meredith said...

Thank goodness for belts! And the touch of turquoise is perfect!

Jen ♥ said...

I'm excited to shop for more variety in maternity clothes! I'm trying not to go too crazy so I've had the same few outfits on repeat for the summer because they're the only things that fit! I'm so happy I'll have an excuse to buy long sleeves, etc.

I love this dress on you. I'm SUCH a sucker for dresses with pockets too. I just bought one at H&M & I'm obsessed! (PS - who knew they had a maternity line? Not this mama!)

Kathleen Harper said...

This is such a flattering dress! I love the shape of it and your bright belt adds the perfect amount of flare. So sweet :)

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

You are so dang cute! (I'm sure you hear that all the time, but it is true)

I love to let Summer linger as long as possible. When September is nice and warm I love it. But snow has fallen before in Utah in September, so who knows.

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

I would love a close up of those shoes, my lady. I love Madden shoes (Steve Madden or Madden Girl)!

Belts are so helpful! I really love your combination. Denim +Stripes are perfect.
