I love/hate this time of year. August is generally guaranteed to be the most consistently sunny month here in the Pacific Northwest; we usually take a long family beach vacation, and we celebrate 5 family birthdays. However, the days become shorter (it is becoming increasingly more difficult to wake-up in the mornings), the shadows a little longer, and back-to-school is around the corner. Don’t get me wrong, I love a cozy sweater, changing leaves, spiced lattes, and back-to-school shopping as much as the next person, but this transition is always bitter sweet for me. I guess I want to have my cake and eat it too – or linger in my sundresses yet still wear my new fall booties!
With this in mind, I’ve selected several transitional pieces that you can be wearing now (like, right now) yet continue to pair them with fall staples as the weather cools (and leaves turn, kids go back to school…sniff, sniff).
Denim Dress: Easy with bare legs and strappy sandals now or layer under a cosy knit with tights and booties in the fall.
Lace-Up Flats: Screaming for a denim mini skirt in summer’s sunshine but just as easy with a cropped trouser as the weather cools.
Wide Brim Fedora: Nothing better to keep the sun off your face than the wide brim, yet also perfect to keep your head warm in chillier temps.
Long Vest: Equally awesome when worn over a tank with your favorite boyfriend jeans or with a turtleneck and cigarette pants.
