First Taste of Fall

Today is raining but last week we had absolutely 'summery' weather (some days hit 80 degrees) - so I wore an off- the-shoulder top with a denim vest...and because the calendar screamed about it being the end of September, I decided: it's time for a 'taste of fall' and sported my new pair of boots.

How To Transition Into Fall With Summer Items

Those who live north the equator have started transitioning into fall in one way or another. I’m personally not ready for fall and fall clothes. I checked my autumn items in the closet and I'm glad that I can still wait to dust them off. It is still essentially summer here in Connecticut; outside is about 75-80 degrees.
This past weekend when we went out, I decided to wear some of my summer pieces, but style them in a way to end up with a transitional look. I've put together a few of my thoughts and ideas. So I wore neon-orange jeans with a white-red stripes top - I think both of these items have typical spring or summer colors. This combo can easily be taken into early autumn, when I styled them with fall type pieces such as this lightweight sweater and peep-toe booties, both in natural color.
I think for this look at least, I deserve not just a ribbon, but a medal, so I pinned it on my chest (just not in the usual place).

Draped and Stylishly Slouchy

Last year this outfit was my travel basic. At airports I got a lot of compliments about it, but since that time I never wore these items together - only separately. So now I decided to correct the omission and had these clothes work with each other again.

Printed Pants for Autumn

Printed pants are an easy way to add a little bit of wow factor to an outfit. I love to wear my pants in summer and now, as long as weather permits I would like to wear them in fall. 
So I wore my printed pants with two off the shoulder tops. Sometimes, depending on my mood, a rusty color top goes under a peach one, but this time I wore 'rusty' top over 'peach' because it looks more autumnal. Maybe I can show their interchangeability one day.

Destroyed jeans with boho & nautical vibe

Actually I'm not the type of person who will wear destroyed jeans on a daily basis, but sometimes I love to "go crazy" and wear edge items - and also cross-mixing them with other styles. So when "crazy time" came I decided to rock the destroyed jeans with a casual nautical top + feminine boho top and hat; and also add sporty sneakers. Such crazy mixing...but I love it!
Too bad that summer is over and now it's time to think about autumn edginess.

Transitioning Summer Striped Top Into Fall

Even though it's pretty warm outside and autumn has not officially arrived yet, we all know that summer is gone. So during this time 'between' seasons (I hope for couple more weeks of nice warmth) I am still able to wear my favorite summer items as we transition to fall.
I still want to wear this red and white striped top (you can see it in this, this and this post) and I'm so glad that for this time of year I can just add a light sweater and also feel comfortable a bit longer in my sandals. I don't want to let go of summer.

In some cases in everyday life, I look overdressed when I'm around my husband.
So this summer I decided to match him more and here I am looking almost like his exact copy. For a complete transformation I would have to wear boat shoes and get rid of the cap.
These days when I wear his very old cut off  505 Levi's with tank tops or muscle shirts I'm telling myself that I'm also following a new (defined as a bland anti-style) Normcore trend.

Midi skirt + 'Birkenstock' sandals

In the late spring I wanted to try to put on my floral midi skirt with a 'Star Wars' t-shirt and 'Birkenstock' sandals. It's hard to believe, but for a long time after a trip to California I couldn't find that shirt in my own  closet. I even considered buying a new one on-line (the last one I bought was at 'DisneyWorld' in Florida) but finally the old 'Star Wars' t-shirt got accidentally discovered. So in the beginning of fall I was able to make this outfit up.

Celebrating Labor Day with stripes

 Fall is right around the corner so I celebrated the final days of the summer season.
