Hello friends! How is your week going? I’m feeling so good about my new schedule and we now have James, our 3rd grader on a good after-school schedule too! Can you tell I’m a bit OCD with my calendaring?! #sorrynotsorry;)
We have our first baseball practice tonight, so we’ll see if I can fit in my exercise as planned and maybe meet a few mamas who want to do it with me.

How To Transition Summer Clothes To Fall
Today, we’re going over how to transition summer clothes toour Fall wardrobes from Summer to Fall. This time of year can be tricky because for lots of us, it’s still hot out, but we’re ready to dress for cooler temps. Is that you too?? I have a great solution for you by incorporating a few Summer to Fall friendly items into your closet.
You can start wearing these things now without dying of heat stroke, and they will also carry you well into Fall.
SUMMER TO FALL OUTFIT #1
Let’s start with one of my favorite Fall trends, dark florals. Even though this blouse is a shell/tank style (perfect for hot days), the dark background with floral print easily lends itself to Fall. It’s silky smooth in the front with a t-shirt material back. You can give it a mini front tuck for a casual look or tuck it into a skirt or pants for the office.
Top Fit: TTS, wearing XSP
The mid-rise jeans are the skinny crop with a frayed edge hem. I love how stretchy and comfortable they are, while still maintaining their shape. They are great for showing a bit of ankle with a bootie.

You saw these statement earrings in my July Loves and they are still going strong. While the yellow might be more summery, the white work well year round. They also come in a ton of other colors and aren’t heavy!
The no-brainer transitional Fall piece is a quality military jacket. I scored this one at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but if it sold out before you could get your hands on it, don’t worry. It’s back in stock in ALL sizes and at an even better price- under $40!
The jacket is more of a button down shirt fit with a pleat in the back and relaxed fit. It’s one of those pieces that’s versatile for throwing over a top when it’s chilly, but not downright cold. It also comes in camo!
Jacket Fit : TTS, XSP
I went ahead and busted out one of my favorite Fall booties that I’m ready to wear now!
I beeline for boots and booties every Fall. This cone shaped bootie with a v-cut front made my list of “Must Haves.” That little V is magic for elongating your leg line and letting a little bit of ankle peek through. They are flattering on everyone, but especially on us shorties. I bought them in black and tan. They’re also quite comfortable and the cone heel is fashion forward.
Booties Fit : I sized up half because they run narrow.
SUMMER TO FALL OUTFIT #2
Outfit two is a little out of my comfort zone with a flat shoe (I’m used to heels or wedges), but when it’s this cute and comes in a leopard print, I’m all in! They are a bit dressier with a pointy toe and darker leopard pattern. You could definitely wear these at work or anywhere else!
Loafers Fit: TTS and come in Wide and Medium.
I’m smitten with this ruffle sleeve tee. It’s ultra soft and comfy and the fun sleeve detail dresses it up from your regular black tee. I like this worn casually with jeans and the pop of leopard, but you could also pair it with a skirt or pants.
Aren’t those shoes fun?! I like the pointy toe and they come in both medium and wide widths to fit every foot.
Again, I threw on the military jacket to show you how easily it goes with nearly any outfit. I usually cuff the sleeves by folding them up and then tucking them over the fold for an effortless, unstuffy look.
SUMMER TO FALL OUTFIT #3
Remember that colorblock top I got in my Amazon Fashion Haul? I really liked the extra soft and smooth material and the faux suede pocket. It comes in tons of colors and even long sleeve. Worn untucked, this top is long enough to wear with leggings and a cardigan in the Fall. Now, you can give it a front tuck or side tie.
Top Fit : TTS, wearing size Small
The popular Wedge Sneakers went fast during the Anniversary Sale, but they’re restocked in almost all sizes now! The zip makes them very easy to get on and off- no laces to mess with. I think these booties are great for any age and the taupe color is pretty in person.
Sneaker Fit : TTS, but slightly narrow.
One of my favorite Fall and Winter season accessories is a scarf. They can add so much color and personality to your outfit, while being highly functional. Right now, this lightweight scarf is great with the blend of colors and fun tassels. I’m also crazy for this dark floral scarf.
These skinny mini jeans are a mid-rise with a bit of stretch. I love the medium wash and slight whiskering at the hips. They also have a comfortable ‘Ab-solution’ powermesh panel to “mold and hold, a waistband with interior control and booty-lift construction.” #youhadmeatbootylift
Skinny Jeans FIT : TTS, wearing 00P here, but ended up with 0P (my true size).
Is it still 100 degrees where you are? Are you ready for Fall fashion?! I know I am!
I hope this gave you all some great outfit ideas and you found inspiration on how to transition summer clothes to fall!
Have a great day friends!
