Weekend Recap: Tying together Seasons

I know I live in California where it is expected to be warm and sunny 95% of the year, and yes I have to say I love it, but though some may not believe this - we do experience a type of fall and winter weather. It does get cold here, but more like a wonderful-type of cold. A cold that you can wear the fun layers, but not be freezing or need a heavy coat to cover them up. I love and anticipate this type of cold weather, BUT lately we have had none of that. Try wearing thick wool tights when it's is 85 degrees and dry as a bone outside - not a pretty sight (a lot of tossing off layers and wiping sweat off the brow).

For the weekend plans this is what I had to work with - tying together the fall with the "summer-like" weather.

For breakfast with the girls, running errands, and then a Fall Dinner Party this dress,(which is actually a skirt) sweater, and over the knee socks worked well. I just changed up the hat for the dinner party.

And for Sunday's brunch by the beach I made this black blouse (short-sleeved - thank goodness!) stand out with pops of green, yellow, and red.

I adore these outfits. I feel your pain with the hot weather. It's in the 90's again today! Ugh. Hope you're not close to any of the fires.

I love this blog!

Ive noticed a couple people who also use skirts as dresses and I think it looks so cute. However, I have tried to look for skirts suitable for this, but I have a hard time figuring out the best way to do this look. What do you look for in skirts to have them double as dresses? What cuts or prints do you like? Maybe you could write a short article on this?
