Despite my nasty cold, I decided to restyle one of my summer dresses for autumn, in between blowing my nose and wishing I had scarf to wear with this outfit. When did it get so cold?! Anyway, I paired my lovely meadow Joe Browns dress (from Simply Be) with a bottle green cardigan (Evans), black tights (Primark), boots (Newlook) and swapped my bright red lipstick for a autumny plum wine hue (from Revlon) . Above are two photos, one of my dress in the summer (click here to see this post) and the other in autumn. I think it's important to buy clothes with an idea of how much wear you will get from it. For me, I knew this dress would be wearable for three of the four seasons and therefore its £38 was worth every penny.

Do you try and restyle clothes for different seasons?
Do you think this look works?

I'm setting you a challenge:
 Try restyling an old summer piece for autumn. Swap your bare legs for tights. Flats for boots and wrap up nice and warm!

Let me know your thoughts and I'd love to hear whether you're gonna try my restyling challenge.

I love restyling things to make them fall appropriate - and this dress is so pretty! Coney Island is so much like Brighton; it's funny that you pointed that out because I was thinking the exact same thing!

Summer dresses can totally be worn into autumn! And it makes fashion so versatile too :) Also love that first picture of you throwing leaves!

Let me know if you'd like to follow each other!

I need to do this, I have so many cute dresses from Summer that I want to wear again! I need to get some thicker tights though, preferably thermal ones I'm thinking! I don't do 'cold' at all hehe!

Your make up and hair look so pretty in these shots!

well, our autumn here is not so warm, to be honest so summer dresses are not the best choice :P but it's still exciting to see how you have styled the same dress two different ways. I think it's a great success ;) and those sunny photos made me smile. I just miss warm sunshine.
