How to Wear DIY: Late summer date night

How to Wear DIY... late-summery dresses!

We've been having a bit of an Indian summer this year here in the Portland area, with weather all over the place last week--some chilly rain, some days when it was hot when I got home from work... oh, Oregon.

Anyway with Saturday being the first day of October, I figured I'm out of chances to wear cute summery dresses.  But with some sunshine Friday night, I had one last hurrah--I wore this cute dress that I love and threw together so quickly earlier this summer, when husband and I went out to our new fave Thai place for date night!

I wore it belted and with tan wedges.  And a red cardigan!
Belt: Vintage via Goodwill. Earrings: Nordstrom Rack. 
Dress: DIY, made from vintage fabric from Goodwill!

I always like to dress seasonally, but I figured with the sunshine and everyone in flip-flops, most of us weren't ready for the cold season yet.  And the olive and warm 60's colors are sort of fall-ey.

After the rainy weekend, though, I am totally ready for winter--I wore cozy socks for the first time since last spring!  Hope you're having a good early fall, and I hope this bipolar weather calms down!
