Hey everyone! As we head into the weekend, and it's starting to cool off, I thought today I'd share my five favorite ways to transition into a fall wardrobe!
It's slowly starting to feel a bit more like fall in Idaho, and you've already heard me rant about how excited I am for pumpkin season when I shared my recipe for almond butter pumpkin cake. But I'm excited for more then just pumpkin! The trees are ever so slightly changing colors, the weather is starting to cool off and the days are getting shorter. We're not exactly through with swimming in the pool or grilling for dinner, but it's coming and we can feel it! Everyone is looking forward to the changing season around here. Bring on the cool weather, with sweaters and corn mazes and (of course) pumpkin flavored everything!
Around this kind of year I cobble together a kind of transitional wardrobe. It ranges hugely in temperature here, everything from 50 degrees in the morning to 90 degrees in the middle of the day. It's important to do a couple of simple swaps to keep up with the changing temperatures.
my tips for transitioning your summer wardrobe to fall
1. Change out your sandals for wedges or booties. You can wear a heavier shoe even with your sundresses, if you layer a bit more (like in tip # ) it will look intentional, not silly.
2. Swap out your light skirts or shorts for jeans, but leave your light flowy summer top. I actually wear my "summer" tops all year round! I just layer them with heaver sweaters and jackets as the weather gets cooler. When it's legitimately cold enough to warrant layers I'll wear this tank with a cardigan and a coat and scarf. Sleeveless tops make layering easy!
3. Carry a lightweight sweater or jacket with you at all times! I keep a neutral one in my car or large bag. This makes it easy to throw on another layer if I'm out early or late and need a little warmth.
4. Keep your summer jewelry in rotation! I love my long necklaces and statement earrings, and I don't give them up until I can replace them with beanies and scarves.
5. Swap out your bag for something a little darker. I've been using my maroon leather coach bag almost every day, and my bestie has been rocking a brown leather and tweed bag. Lush heavy fabrics and colors say "fall."
They're simple changes, but I'm really excited for them. I've lived in my soft shorts and tank tops this summer, I'm excited for more layers and options. Plus, this winter marks the first time in years Noah has seen any snow, it should be interesting.
