It’s officially fall, which means so many great things – sweaters, apple picking, pumpkin spice everywhere, and the holidays just around the corner. Though autumn is undeniably a fun season, I refuse to say goodbye to my favorite summer maxi dresses and skirts!
There’s something so stylish about a great maxi like this gorgeous one from Zaful (which is currently on sale for $17.99 and also comes in red and blue) – maybe it’s their comfortable flow, chic design, or how they can be dressed up or down. Whatever the reason, these make for great transition pieces from summer to fall. Here are my top tips for keeping them in your rotation long after summer ends!
1. Add an ankle bootie
Nothing says fall like a comfortable ankle bootie. The structure of a boot is the perfect juxtaposition to the flow of a maxi dress.
2. Top it off with a fall hat in an autumn shade
I scored this red had from the LIT Boutique at a blogger event last year, and it’s still going strong! A thick felt hat like this will keep your head warm and drive home the fall look.
3. Throw on a cozy piece
It may sound odd to pair a sweater with a dress, but it strangely creates the most effortless outfit, while keeping you warm against the crisp fall air!

4. Dress it up with some pearls
Dress up the sweater + maxi look with fun accessories, like this gorgeous pearl necklace c/o The Pearl Source!
I’m so enamored with The Pearl Source, I have to let you in on this amazing family-run business of over 23 years. While I was gifted this necklace, I was not instructed to say any of the following, I just think it’s a really great company for many reasons and I want you to know all of the details!
Based in Los Angeles and featured in everything from People Magazine, to the LA Times and Marie Claire, The Pearl Source buys direct from the pearls country of origin, which means no middle man and lower prices – yes please! They also specialize in pearls, so literally all they sell is pearl jewelry and they are masters of their craft to say the least. Plus, they offer free ground shipping and 100% money back guarantee within 60 days (and their shipping is extremely quick)!
