Sigh. It's Monday again. And as not excited as I am about Mondays or the fact that today is the start of a very long few weeks for me at work, it's hard to be upset that later this week it's already September, meaning fall is around the corner! Nevertheless, it is still August and this week we're experiencing a bit of a heat wave again. These transitional times can be tough to dress for, since the temps may fluctuate up to 30° from the morning to the afternoon. The key here is to mix and match your summer favorites with your fall staples. By layering and mixing coverage (by this I mean, long sleeves + bare legs; bare arms + covered legs, etc.), you'll be ready to face your day – in style, of course.
How to Wear: Boyfriend Shorts
Your favorite summer staple is hard to let go of when the temperatures start to drop. Luckily, you don't need to ditch your boyfriend shorts just yet. Trade in your tank for a fun, gingham button-down. Layer a cozy sweater on top for the mornings when it's chilly. By afternoon, you can tie it around your waist like you did as a kid – only you'll rock it like a true prepster. Grey accessories will be that perfect fall finishing touch.
How to Wear: T-Shirt Dress
Summer is all about breezy dresses – but that doesn't mean fall can't be too! Take your t-shirt dress from casual to chic with some carefully selected accessories. Ditch the sandals for leather booties, and layer up with a denim jacket, plaid scarf, and felt hat. You'll be like "summer, who?" in no time.
How to Wear: Romper
One of summer 2015's trendiest pieces was, no doubt, the romper. The easy one-piece style was an outfit completer in itself in those warm summer months. But who says it doesn't have a place in your fall wardrobe as well? A long cardigan and some heeled booties will play up proportions and lengthen those legs. On particularly chilly mornings? Throw on some fun, patterned tights.
Keep an eye out this week for my first fashion fix of fall! It's a goodie!
Until next time–
