If I had to choose some sort of mission statement for the way I shop it would be this: versatility, versatility, versatility. Living in Southern California - and therefore without real seasons - we only get a couple months of "fall" and winter. Because of that, I find it really hard to justify buying clothes specifically for the seasons and instead like to only buy things that I know I can wear year-round with the help of some crafty styling. That's why I'm so excited to be partnering with Steady Clothing today to show you how to style some of their pieces for both summer and fall. Well, in my case, summer and winter. But if you live in a normal location, my version of winter clothes will undoubtedly be more fitting for your fall.
Outfit 1 - Summer
Outfit 1 - Fall
Steady makes my absolute favorite circle skirts, and I don't say that lightly. Considering I wear mine all the time, I was excited to try out this rust color. It's a perfect fall piece, but I wanted to show that this color works great for the summer as well. It feels like this comfy striped top was made for it, and I paired them with sandals and a boater hat for an incredibly easy warm weather look. Transitioning to fall was a breeze as well, and I went with a denim jacket, tights, and booties. This top and skirt as such amazing staple pieces and I know for a fact I'll be wearing them all year long.
Outfit 2 - Summer
Dress: Painting the Roses Red Dress | Shoes: Swedish Hasbeens | Sunglasses: Modcloth
Outfit 2 - Fall
When I started looking through the Steady site, this dress was the first item I knew I wanted to style. Its full skirt makes it incredibly flattering, but the best thing about it is how comfortable it is. This dress is great to slip on with sandals and sunglasses for summer, but it also is a fun one to dress up. This soft cropped sweater makes for a cute fall, and I can definitely see myself wearing this look on Christmas or a to a holiday party.
Steady makes some of my favorite items, all of which are comfy and well-made, and it wasn't surprising that styling them for different seasons wasn't difficult at all. I can't wait to keep wearing all of these pieces throughout the year.
