Outfits- Transitioning to layers

There's no point denying, since Labor day has passed, fall is coming.  I got my first Pumpkin Spice Latte the other day, and I've needed to start putting on jackets at night.  The days have still been hot, but the weather changes are starting.  So, the other day I had my mom photograph how I layer my summer favorites to transition to fall.

Mini-skirts transition easily, here's how I did mine.  In my spring outfit I wore a Tahari skirt from Rue La La, a tee I've had forever, a thrifted belt, shoes from Nordstrom Rack, and my favorite Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses.  To change over to fall I slid on a vintage Gloria Vanderbilt sweater, put the belt over it, and paired it with some more substantial booties.  Perfect for this in-between weather.

My summer go-to tops are printed tanks.  They're comfy, colorful, and can be dressed up or down.  This one is from Old Navy.  For summer I usually pair it with some jean shorts, and my favorite Swedish Hasbeens Sandals.  For fall I added a thrifted mens shirt (which is perfect for this fall) and belted it.  I also added some fleece lined tights I got from Urban Outfitters.  They're amazing for wearing dresses, shorts, and skirts in the colder weather.  I topped it off with the perfect Ash heels.

I have a lot of simple sundresses.  When fall comes I forget that I can just layer them, and they can move into my fall looks.  For this fall look I swapped my flats for some tall socks and boots.  I added a thin jacket on top that's comfy enough to wear all day.  I also added a scarf I knitted.

So, none of these ideas are earth shattering, but every time the fall comes I need to re-teach myself that my things can transition.  I really love spring and summer clothes, so I have to be creative in layers weather or I feel like I need to buy a whole new wardrobe.  Are you excited for this cooler weather? -Mallory
