Four dresses for fall

A little more wardrobe re-working is up on this 3P blog again!  I love to reuse items from my closets to keep them up-to-date, and today I am sharing four summer dresses I have reworked for fall.  All of these dresses are short-sleeved or sleeveless, and I have said it before but will say it again: layering is key, lovelies!  This goes for any day you expect to be in different climates (outside versus a warm indoors), and is also an excellent concept to use when traveling anywhere (anyone else ever wrapped themselves up in a scarf while on a flight?).  When autumn days are not very chilly, I think open-toed shoes are still wearable- however, on a chilly gray stormy day, covered toes are a must!  Also, know that lightweight to medium-weight jackets are a great fall investment, as they will be ideal for layering and carrying that summer wardrobe of yours into fall.
