Transitional Outfit

IMG_9502.JPGIt’s always hard to transition between summer and fall, especially where we live.  Fall temps don’t usually really start happening here until late October/early November.  It works in our favor, because we usually can wait to hit the sales on sweaters/coats.  It’s not even begun to get cold until December/January.

What I have done here is create a fun date-night/lunch-date outfit that is not too hot nor too cool, temp-wise.

The short-sleeve sweater is made of cotton, but can definitely be topped off with a jean jacket for even cooler temps.  Thank goodness the “rainbow trend” is also transitioning into fall, according to the latest fashion magazines.  I love how you can accessorize with all of the colors in it, or like here, go with neutrals, like gold, white and gray.

The white jeans, my year-round staple, have a frayed hem to add some interest.

The chunky heel gives me height, elongating me, and evens out the stripes, which tend to give you a widening illusion.

I used the cross body LV bag, because I love taking this on dates.  I can be hands-free, yet have something to house my basics:  phone, lipstick and cc.  IMG_9503.JPGfullsizeoutput_30ee.jpegfullsizeoutput_30ec.jpegfullsizeoutput_30ea.jpegfullsizeoutput_30e8.jpegfullsizeoutput_30e4.jpegIMG_9505.JPGIMG_9508.JPGIMG_9509.JPGIMG_9510.JPG

How do you transition from summer to fall?  Any helpful hints you can offer this old gal?

Toodle-oo,
