Although I love this time of year, from a clothing standpoint it can be a little tough. Our Instagram feeds are taken up by pictures of pumpkin spice lattes, fall candles, and the new must have boots for the season. Step outside and you’re smacked with 80 degree weather and humidity. Not so ideal for boot and sweater weather. So until it is cool enough to really embrace the fall trends, I try to incorporate darker colors and transition pieces. Reaching for a pair of cute lace up heels instead of summer wedges, or jeans and a lightweight shirt instead of a dress will help you get into the fall spirit without leaving you sweating in the sun.
Portofino Shirt: here / Express jeans: here
These Portofino shirts from Express are a staple in my closet for every season. They are lightweight and come in a TON of different colors and patterns. You can tuck it in or leave the tails out. You can roll up the sleeves or wear them down. You can button it up or leave it open with a cami underneath. The possibilities are endless and they are so versatile. Express occasionally has a special on these where they are buy 1, get one 50% off and I am pretty sure the special is running right now! I have linked the shirt above so you can check them out.
Shoes: here / Tassel option: here
And these SHOES!! If these shoes can’t brighten up your Monday I don’t know what can! I have been seeing lace up shoes everywhere lately. They are such an awesome heel to transition your wardrobe into the fall. I have linked the pair I have above, and also linked a pair that have tassels on them. I am loving tassels and fringe for the fall, so that pair is also great buy!
What are some pieces that you use to transition into the fall?! Let me know below!
Thank you for checking in! HAPPY MONDAY!
