This post is an entry for the petite fashion challenge, hosted this month by the lovely Liza of Fashion for Teens.

Challenge: "Summer To Fall"
Take traditionally summer pieces (like tank tops, shorts, mini skirts, sundresses etc.) and make them appropriate for fall.
I love living in Texas for its warm weather, but when fall collections start to get released around August, it's hard to think about dressing for cooler weather when it's still 104 degrees outside!  Nevertheless, I decided to try my hand at transitioning a summer outfit to a fall one with a few simple tricks.

I started off with a striped sleeveless LOFT dress I scored for $8.50 (I had a 25% off coupon + $20 birthday voucher + $20 rewards card).  Given that the style didn't come in petite sizing and XS was the smallest size in store, the dress was quite big on me straight off the rack {see twitpic}.  But thanks to the magic of my tailor (aka Mom), she slimmed in the sides and tapered in the bottom skirt to ultimately make it something that fit me to a T {thanks Mom!}.

To add some elements of Fall to the outfit, I layered on a darker taupe cardigan and matched it up with shooties {shoe + booties -- yes, one of the weirdest compound words I've ever heard of}.  I can't wait until cooler weather actually comes so that I can bust out my boots, but in the meantime, this open-toed tan colored pair will be the perfect transition item!

soft ochre paint pot, rubenesque paint pot, cosmic eyeshadow, saturnal eyeshadow, claire de lune eyeshadow, nightfish fluidline, maybelline one by one mascara, mac studio finish concealer in NW20, fresh faces sheer neutral light foundation, margin blush, viva glam v lipstick

As for my makeup I decided to play up the gold tones in the outfit.  I love using golds, olives, and browns in my makeup when fall rolls around too as the colors remind me of the changing autumn leaves.  So dreamy, right?  :)

Readers: how do you transition a summer outfit for fall?

This outfit is totally one I would wear and love! (Minus the heels...I can't rock those too well yet). I'm impressed by your accessorizing skills.

Amber said... [Reply]

lol @ shooties! those are such a great transition shoe and they definitely elongate your legs! im so jealous that its still hot by you. winter will be upon us in WI wayyyy too soon

Kileen said... [Reply]

it's kinda cooling down after this weekend. and by that i mean the high is only 99 on Monday. :)

Michelle said... [Reply]

Gorgeous!!  I am drooling over those booties!  And your dress!

I love the colour palette here. The outfit looks extra pretty with  your added jewelry!

Sewpetite Gal said... [Reply]

Super cute!  I love the bag, booties, and cardi with the dress!

Cee said... [Reply]

Shooties, huh? I learn something new everyday :) Grays and browns are sometimes a hard color to mix, but I love how you chose a darker gray and lighter brown so there isn't a stark contrast. You look fab, Kileen!

Elaine A (TOBeautyReviews) said... [Reply]

Cool makeup Kileen! I'm so happy to see you making navy and white work for fall - gives me hope I can wear my pieces longer!

Stephanienbryan12007 said... [Reply]

How Do You Stay Looking Fresh? My Makeup Would Be Running With This Hot Weather...

Kileen said... [Reply]

I use a good primer -- Stila Hydrating Primer for my face, MAC paintpots for my eyeshadows, and I set everything with MAC Fix+. I have pretty dry skin so I guess that also helps in prevent my makeup from melting... :)

Kiki said... [Reply]

I love the booties and the navy/coral combo. Absolutely beautiful!

Laura Frost said... [Reply]

Great post! I think I will be wearing a similar outfit this fall. Thanks for the idea!

Jenn said... [Reply]

My simplest solution to making any outfit fall appropriate it to throw a pair of boots on.  I know, it sounds like cheating but anytime I see a good pair of brown boots with a skirt or dress, I'm in fall-heaven!  Also, I'm going to try to incorporate some scarves into my fall outfits. 

I have a question about this challenge:  Do you have to be a petite to participate?  (I'm 5'4, really closer to 5'5, and am not sure if that counts)  Also, how would someone participate? 

Kileen said... [Reply]

i'm not sure how strict they are as far as being petite...you're probably ok if you're 5'4". and you can stay up to date on the Petite Fashion Challenges in this forum post: http://forum.alterationsneeded.com/petite-fashion-challenge-sign-up-list-t354.html
then just schedule your post on the date specified and that's it! :)

Cecilia Oviedo said... [Reply]

Oh love the satchel and the way you've belted the cardi, this outfit is very inspirational for me K!

Navy and coral is absolute perfection! I'm really diggin' the dress! Glad your mom is an expert seamstress and could whip it into shape for you!

Polka Princess said... [Reply]

Loving the transition outfit......that taupe cardi is perfect for the start of Fall, as are those "shooties" (sounds fancy!)..............great job done with the whole look!

P.S.: That satchel is GORGEOUS!! <3

Pretty Quirky Pants said... [Reply]

That bag is really cute! I also like that bulbous ring you have on. I'm a fan on chunky rings :)
You've also done your gold eye make-up really well. Have you considered using fake lashes to pump up the look? I personally never have, but I have a friend who does and it looks amazing!

cute dress!! xoxo jillian:: cornflake dreams

I absolutely love your eyeshadow here. Love the gold tones. It looks beautiful.

Cute arm party! You are doing so well with it. I have been playing with my jewelry too lately, but since the last time I commented, I haven't tried the arm party yet... Maybe soon! I bought a lot of statement pieces and I find they are tricky to wear but when you perfect it, the end result is so awesome. You almost have to dress for your necklace if that makes any sense.

Loving the stripes and the cardi! I never think to wear an open cardigan with a belt like that. Must give it a try.

Kileen said... [Reply]

i love the belted open cardi for fall. definitely a must try! :)
