When You're Fall Ready but the Weather Is Not

The winds are changing and with that comes a new season, arguably our favorite one, fall. We are ready to kiss those triple digit days goodbye, but the temperature gods seem to want to hang on just a bit longer. So what do you do? The way to beat this awkward in between is through some clever combinations of color and fabrics to help extend the length of your summer wardrobe. We have done most of the heavy lifting for you here, and added pieces from our online shop to help you transition gracefully. Keep scrolling to see what we’ve put together. 


Switch up your shoe game

It is time to start covering those toes again, but don’t worry, there are a few ways to keep maximum ventilation going. Below are a few samples of some shoes that can easily walk you through the end of summer to fall.

Mix & match your summer with fall pieces 

Don’t put away your tank tops just yet! A simple, but unexpected combination could lead to some serious street style approved looks. We paired a blazer with a graphic tank tee and short denim skirt. Perfect for when it gets a little chilly in the morning but heats up throughout the day. Bonus points for the skirt, because when it does get cooler, it can be easily paired with some tights. Hello, versatility!

You want to stay as comfortable as possible, no matter what the weather turns out to be. And how do you accomplish this? By layering, people! The trick here is to go with light layers

Have fun with new accessories

This means jewelry, handbags, or even hats. I like to switch my summer accessories, raffia bags and straw hats for example, with leather goods, chunky metals, and an overall muted down color palette. Here are a few ideas that accomplish just that.
