Transitional Style: Taking Summer into the Fall

Fall is finally here and I could not be happier! This is my favorite time of the year! One of the reasons that I love this season so much is because of the clothes! It is the season of jackets, sweaters, boots and scarves! So many of my favorite things to wear!

But while I do love all of the clothes that are specific to the Fall season, that doesn’t mean that I don’t love finding ways to transition some of my favorite Spring and Summer pieces.

This white maxi was one of my absolute favorite pieces to wear this past Spring and Summer. It is such an easy dress to wear and the white just gives off a clean and polished vibe. Add a cute necklace and I look totally put together in less than 5 minutes!

I am one who firmly believes that white CAN be worn after labor day so I could not wait to transition this dress into the Fall. I knew I would need a layer of some sort so when I saw this olive bomber jacket in my closet, with the tags still intact, I knew that I had found my match!

I kept my accessories simple because I really wanted the outfit to do the talking. Nothing too crazy or bright, just a very neutral earth tone palette to transition my dress. Rich browns, deep greens and fragrant leather add to the earthy vibe and really take my outfit to the next level.

I did, however, decide to go with a fun earring. The long, feather earrings really add to the boho vibe of my outfit and add some fun and whimsy. I actually found these earrings at my local Rue 21 a few years ago. I like buying earrings like this at lower price points because I don’t wear them that often. They are trendy or for a specific outfit so I would rather spend my money on something classic or more versatile.

With transitional style, the best tip that I can give you is to start with something classic and add a layer. A jacket, sweater or vest is a great way to transition your favorite Spring or Summer pieces. Classic items are best so I wouldn’t suggest transitioning your favorite sequin flamingo tee! A great maxi, a pair of white skinnies or even a brightly colored tee can easily be transitioned with the right accessories and layers. Bottom line though, if you are comfortable and confident then that is going to show in your outfit and, no matter what you are wearing, you are  going to look fabulous!
