So I know that many of you HAVE summer dresses but you may not wear summer dresses. Well, here’s your second chance. Don’t put them away just yet, they will make for a cute outfits paired with an oversized cozy sweater! And if you haven’t already noticed there’s a neutral bootie theme, you should have a pair in your closet. Or 3.

Transition to Fall- Denim Shorts

Transition to Fall- Denim ShortsEveryone has a pair of denim shorts. Mine just happen to be this distressed. You can wear these long into fall, and here’s an example of how.

I pair them with a silk tank and topped with a long kimono. Don’t be afraid of the long hem! It doesn’t matter if it is longer than your shorts. Also, ditch the sandals to make this less summery and pair them with booties. Really…pair everything with booties! I love shorts and skirts with booties!

When in doubt, go with the bootie!

Transition to Fall- White Dress

It’s that time of year again, when no one has any idea what to wear!  Is it going to feel like August today or October?  No one knows!
I have a few tips for you to help with the transition from summer to fall.Transition to Fall- White Dress

Here I’ve taken a very summery dress (nothing gets more summery than a white dress) and paired it with a simple layer- a denim shirt.  You could do a jacket but I like the way the shirt is a little lighter and hopefully it’s also long and is close to the hemline of the dress.  This is also a perfect season for peeptoe booties (because when else do they make sense).  Wear them before the snow flies!  Shoot, I just said the “S” word, sorry!

One thing I can’t live without lately is my baseball cap.  It sure comes in handy for second (or third!) day hair.  I like this outfit with a simple little saddle bag.  Something that reminds me a little of my very first purse in junior high….when it wasn’t cool yet to have a purse.  Does anyone else remember that?

Hopefully this is an outfit you can wear if it’s 80 or 60!

Tooting My Horn

I’m not one to normally toot my own horn, but today I’ve hit a milestone.

I am officially in the 1K club, that is 1,000 followers on Pinterest. No, I don’t have a huge following on Facebook and my Instagram followers are growing, but I do get some love from Pinterest. 

Maybe that’s a subtle way to say I spend way too much time there?

Yea me!
