Little House on the Prairie

September 24, 2014

I decided to give my gauzy white summer skirt one last spin before I put it away for the season.  I wanted to “fall it up” a bit and this is what I came up with …  kinda Little House on the Prairie-ish, but it made me happy wearing it!

Well, I did spend a lot of time watching that show as a child!

Outfit details:

Skirt – Old Navy
Tee – Old Navy
Jacket – Lucky Brand
Boots – Nine West American Vintage (DSW)
Bag – Oryany

So Dolls, are you giving any of your summer clothes a last hurrah and/or a bit of a fall makeover?

Don’t forget to follow me for more fashion fun:

    So pretty and I LOVE your boots! I've been wearing my white jeans quite a bit this last month, before they go away until the spring!

    • Reply dawnlucy September 25, 2014 at 12:12 am

      Thanks, Lana! Found these boots on sale at the end of the season last year and didn't get to wear them too much, so can't wait for some fall weather!

    Oh, fellow Cali girl! Of course I give all my summer clothes a last huzzah. In fact, even though Monday was the first day of fall (if the Google graphic was to be believed), all my pre-planned outfits for the week still utilize my summer wardrobe. Vive la chaleur!

      Where in Cali are you, dear? I'm in Los Gatos, right by San Jose.

      Thanks, Andrea! This Oryany bag is one of my favorites splurges!

    Such a cute look! I love long skirts, they are comfortable and feminine; all at the same time!

    Very cute. I'd love to wear "fall" clothes, but it's still so warm in Montecito

    • Reply dawnlucy September 25, 2014 at 12:11 am

      It's warm here in Los Gatos too … sigh ….

    I confess that I still have a very summery outfit or two up my sleeve, dearest Dawn!! Today aside (it was absolutely MONSOONING this morning!) we've continued to have some gorgeously warm and sunny weather here in Vancouver…but when it finally does get cooler, I'm going to be all about a "transitional" look like this!! Your white prairie skirt would even be great in the winter with a chunky fisherman's sweater, don't you think?! XOXO

    • Reply dawnlucy September 25, 2014 at 12:13 am

      What a perfect idea … this skirt with a chunky fisherman sweater! You're a fashion genius my dear! Please send us some monsoon! We're in the middle of such a bad draught here!

    Good for you for wearing White in the Fall, besides the street style pictures that came out of the milan fashion week were FILLED WITH WHITE, so you are totally on trend. Besides this is such a nice and mild fall that i say wear those summer items as long as you can! I hope you can come by and join my #reasonstodress Real Mom Street Style linkup. I am also hosting a giveaway for a $600 custom sized Italian leather belt (hand made).

    I would be honored if you could come by!

    Yes, I see the prairie reference but this is still a great layered look for Fall. You are the second blogger today whom I am seeing with a denim jacket, white and cognac boots combo and both of you look lovely. Welcome by to see how I layered my maxi, just recently. 😉

    Have a great weekend Dawn!

    A denim jacket and boots can transform an entire outlook magically.

    It is so fun to style long skirts for the fall! The boots and denim jacket are perfect with it! I keep seeing other bloggers wearing white, yet adjusting it for the fall… such a great idea to get more use out of the white items in our closet!

      Thanks so much, Carrie! Yeah, I'm not sure what made me think of this, but I threw it together and liked it!

    This is my favorite! I love the long white maxi with the denim jacket. So bohemian and pretty. I plan on wearing my summer maxis all winter. If we ever get a winter here.

      Jealous of your fall weather! Still so hot here! Argh!

  • Reply Trina October 1, 2014 at 3:01 pm

    I, too, loved that show. And I still have my set of the "Little House on the Prairie" books, which you probably do as well. But I must say, you look way too stylish to fit into that category. This look is just awesome, in fact I just might be copying it today.

      Hee … thanks, Trina! That's always the best compliment of all! Muah!
