Summer Fashion Does Fall


Hat: Golden Gate Hat Co.| Sunnies: Nordstrom | Long vest: August Silk
Top & skirt: 424 Fifth, Lord & Taylor| Boots: Ciao Bella| Gloves & handbag: Vintage

The start of the Fall season is just four short weeks away, can you believe it?! 2016 is flying by- it feels like Winter, Spring, and Summer all occurred in just the blink of an eye. Nonetheless, there’s at least one positive thing to anticipate: FALL FASHION!!
You’ve seen glimpses of it on the runways this year, in your favorite fashion magazines, and now you’re seeing it here ;) I’ve teamed up with Sharnda of Feed-N-Clothe me to showcase two examples of how to transition your summer fashions into Fall!
Dark floral prints are synonymous with cooler temperatures. Although I wore this sleeveless ensemble during the Summer, with Fall in mind I decided to style these separates differently by adding in layers: an over-sized wool vest and leather elbow length gloves. I live in a mild climate. Although Fall temperatures do provide a noticeable chill (especially for me since I am always COLD), generally it is not nearly as cold here as it is in the Midwest and on the East Coast. I finished off this look with a wool fedora, leather riding boots, and a vintage tote.
This ensemble is ideal for a day at the office or running errands here and there. If need be, depending on temperatures, I can easily add a long, long sleeve wrap in the place of this vest, and or a duster length coat ;)
Don’t forget to pop over to FeedNClotheMe to see Sharnda’s take on transitioning summer pieces :)
--->Now it’s your turn: Are you looking forward to Fall or just Fall Fashion?!

Until next time,
XO
