Moving into Fall with your Wardrobe

It's almost September, the weather is mostly warm, though some mornings you wake and there's a chill in the air, but your Summer wardrobe is still front and center. You're being tempted by all the new goodies at the mall or in the mags (or on the blogs) so how can you transition into Fall clothes without simply stowing your Summer things away?
Think simply and creatively. Do these two words belong in the same sentence? Let's see.
First: Think simple in terms of the basic pieces to transition with. 
 Jeans, leggings, walk shorts, skirts.
As you wear these bottoms into Fall,  grab a sleeveless tank, and instead of adding your usual jewelry pieces, add a big scarf and wrap around your neck to CREATE glamour and sophistication. See, a simple scarf tied creatively adds Fall spice to your Summer wardrobe.

Top off your skinny jeans with a summer dress  (wearing as a top) and add a blazer.
Voila, Summer meets Fall.
Or instead of wearing sandals, wear a sparkly ballet flat (all the rage) or boot instead.

Walk shorts: Add a lightweight jacket or denim jacket from last year's Fall clothes you already have.
Wear with  closed toed shoes or clogs.
Wear your darker colored summer pieces and put away the lighter ones. These will look  more like Fall, even if they're not.
Wear your summer dress with a pair of cowboy boots.

Wear a little more makeup on eyes or lips, or both.

There you have it. A few simple and creative ways to walk from Summer right into Fall. Easy.
Love you,

Thank you Shari!! Great ideas. I love scarves and have several. Sometimes they seem too thick and I feel like they are too close around my neck. (I don't have a pretty long neck!!) Any suggestions? Is this just something I need to get used to? Brenda

Hi Brenda, just droop the neckline of the scarf lower so it's not so snug at neckline...this way it won't feel so tight and you'll still get the pretty look we're going after. love ya! thanks for re-tweeting!

These suggestions are very helpful and I want to get a scarf or two for fall. This morning I tried on a couple of outfits in my closet. Seeing the photos and reading your post, I now have a better understanding of how to transition.

Shari, you are the best!
