Ruth asked a great question yesterday, and I wish I had time to really dig into it.
“Can’t we just talk fabric and color and accessories?”
Why sure we can! Or rather, y’all can. How do you transition from summer to fall, particularly if like Ruth, you live in a place where summer is still hot and heavy, even though the calendar says it is all but over?
Here’s how I do it. Take one seasonless navy sheath, add a jacket that was marketed for spring/summer, and then indeed, the shoes and accessories set the tone. For instance, earlier this week, I wore a similar jacket with a grey tee and blue capris and peep-toe navy flats. Today’s even cooler, so I’d likely trade the flats for pumps and call it a truly transitional outfit. (Note… my jacket is actually cream and PANK, so it requires even more caution to keep it from being too summery.)
As for accessories, I tend to just use scarves as belts in the heat of summer, so they’ll start finding my neck and shoulders again as it cools off.
Now, talk amongst yourselves, and I’ll check back in when I can… someday.
