WEAR NOW & LATER

Once Fall pieces start hitting the stores (um, didn’t Summer just start?) I can’t help but start my “back to Fall” list of clothing. Here, I’ve put together my list of favorite “Wear it Now & Wear it Later” pieces that can easily transition from Summer to Fall. Depending on how you decide to wear and layer the pieces is really all that matters, and many of these pieces can stand up season to season with just a couple other elements changing around them. This romper for example, would alone be perfect for a warm summer day, but would also look just as adorable with some booties and a warm jacket over the top when cooler weather hits. So, even if it’s still hot out, it’s never too early the start preparing for the Fall weather that’s right around the corner.


What pieces are you looking to wear for Fall?

LIGHT AS A LEATHER (JACKET)

Aviator Sunglasses (old, similar here) / Express Faux Leather Jacket (and one I’m coveting here!) / Boyfriend Denim Shorts (old, similar here) / Michael Stars Black and White Stripe Tee Shirt / Layering Rings / Lip Color / White Converse Shoes
Let’s face it; in the Summer, we often have to store our favorite Fall jackets away until it’s abrupt re-arrival in mid September. I know, it’s illogical (and downright uncomfortable ) to break out your thickest fur jacket or heavy duty trench coat, but who’s to say we can’t break some of them out a little early? I’m talking about those simple layering jackets hanging out in your closet waiting for a little loving. Those jackets are perfect for cloudy or unpredictable summer days! Yes, your light trench coats, favorite staple blazers, and one I can’t seem to be able to take off: the perfect (faux) leather jacket. This Express jacket (I call it my “LBJ”) in particular not only goes with everything, but also gets complements left and right. I have yet to find an outfit it doesn’t go with and a person who isn’t infatuated with it. In fact, I’m even looking into purchasing a another one for it’s quality and versatility. Quilting may play a minor role in that too, because, I mean, quilting – I just can’t get enough.

CLASSIC

H&M Striped Sweater (similar here) / Ralph Lauren Fitted Boyfriend Shirt (similar on sale from GAP here) / Denim Shorts (old, similar here) / Brown Faux Leather Crossbody Bag / Franco Sarto Oxford Loafers (similar style and print here) / Vintage Black Sunglasses (similar here)

A good sweater and shorts combo has been a staple of mine for years, especially during transition seasons. And while I know it’s still July and summer is still in full-speed, I know that our Minnesota climate is one to swing to opposite extremes in a matter of hours; so I’ve learned to always be prepared. Removable layers have become a feature in my outfits that I can’t seem to eliminate for that reason, it’s been drilled into my head for too long! Especially when this Ralph Lauren shirt that I can’t seem to go a week without wearing holds up this well! Not a tear or stain in sight; now that’s my kind of shirt.
