Fall-ing For Copper

IMG_3483Yes, even I have finally admitted that summer is sadly coming to an end. All signs have been pointing to this transition, but I’ve chosen to ignore them, up until now that is. This copper colored dress, is a somewhat of a compromise. Despite the fact that the color screams Fall, the sleeveless cut is an ode to a my favorite season.IMG_3478Pieces like these are a great way to prepare your wardrobe, and yourself, for this seasonal transition. Even though I’m not the biggest fan of the easy-to-wrinkle fabric, this copper dress is both light enough for late summer and thick enough for fall.

The waist belt detail is a great way to accentuate your waist and break the monotony of the dress. The high side slit takes the dress from conservative chic to sophisticated seduction.

I’m all about transitional pieces at the moment. Thick sweaters and heavy cardigans still seem a little too much for this beautiful weather, but light items in a deeper and warmer color is just perfect.

Have you started your fall shopping yet or are you still clinging to summer like me?

In a week from now, R & I are going to be in Portland for a mini vacay! Even though California’s weather is getting slightly cooler, Portland is going to be hot! That means summer dress and shorts baby! Can you tell how much I love the warm weather?… Anyway, if you have any recommendations for Portland, let me know!

    This gorgeous ensemble makes me long for fall. So beautiful on you, girl. Yes, I have started updating my wardrobe for fall. My list wasn’t too long this year and I’m being very selective, but it is still so much fun to add pieces we love.
    Have a great time in Portland! I’ve heard so many good things about that spot.

    I literally gasped when I saw the first shot, Tamara, you look GORGEOUS in this whole look; wow! The copper and satin/sheen finish is beyond gorgeous. It looks beautiful and perfect for autumn. I also love the way it looks paired with those grey OTK boots. Such great styling, I’d have to say this is definitely in my top 5 favorite looks of yours! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have the absolute best week ahead!

    LOVE the color so much!! Yes, transitional clothing is hard, as I’m so excited for all the cooler temp clothes, but it’s way too warm in Sac to be wearing any type of sweater or long-sleeve! Fashion timing is a funny thing. I want to hang on to summer clothes but at the same time, I’m SO ready for fall! 🙂

    You look so amazing!! This copper color hadn’t even been on my radar, but now I’m obsessed! I love with those gorgeous, tan boots! And as much as I want to hold onto summer, I can’t resist buying Fall clothing!

    You look amazingly beautiful! Those boots ,the dress on point.

    As Summer begins to set, copper tones really seem to spring up. And your copper-toned dress is BEAUTIFUL. I love your knee-high boots as well, gosh you just look incredible <3

    This is a stunning dress and the copper color is perfect for this fall transition. I actually love fall fashion more than anything else and am so excited to bust out the layers and jackets. These otk boots are perfect for fall too and love how you paired them with this high slit dress. Just gorgeous! xoxo, Christine

    I am so clinging onto summer with all my might! It is quite chilly where I live, not even warm enough for sleeveless options. It’s a sad day when you have to put your tanks away for turtlenecks… In Portland, I would go to Voodoo Doughnuts! They were delicious! The only reason I stopped there was because the line was so long, I assumed it had to be something special, and I was right!

    Hi Tamara! I love your boots. They go so well with the dress. I haven’t started shopping for fall yet- I want to enjoy sun and summer and don’t want to think about fall at all. 🙂

    It is sad to see that summer is coming to an end, however, autumn is one of the seasons that I love, so I am looking forward to it. I still haven’t started updating my autumn wardrobe, I should start that before it i too late. You look lovely in that copper coloured dress x

    I have worn copper eyeshadows but I don’t think I have anything copper in my wardrobe. I am happy that Autumn is here or really close because I’m done with the heat. And I look forward to wearing my OTK boots again. LOL!

    Well—I hate to say what everyone else is saying, but this is truly a great look!!
    I think you are showing how sexy doesn’t have to be nude or flaunty! I was just thinking I may have to get another pair of OTK boots—they have become some of my favorite style lately! I can’t tell in these photos—are yours flat?

    I absolutely love this satin look for fall! The title of the post was very catchy as well, but this copper color in combination with the over the knee suede boots makes a great statement on its own! Love this look!
