Wear Now & Later: Summer to Fall Transition Pieces


It's so hard for me to see so many adorable items hitting stores this time of year knowing I'm not going to be able to wear them (without drenching them in sweat) for at least another month! I feel like I never have anything to wear in September - I either look like I'm headed to the beach (I wish) or I'm hot all day long in long sleeves and layers. This year I'm determined to be better about stocking up on transitional pieces to carry me seamlessly from summer to fall. 


Pom Pom Clutch

One trend that I have been obsessing over this summer has been pom poms (see my favorite pieces   here!), so when I found this fun  clutch that has been all over  Instagram I knew I HAD to have it. I love the whimsical feel that the pom poms brings to this bright, summery outfit; this clutch is perfect for dressing up a casual summer outfit for a brunch date or cocktails on a patio!

Happy Sunday! I'm getting this post up a little late today because I've been laying around and sleeping in - so I'm just assuming you all are doing the same! It's actually starting to cool off a little here in Dallas and making me super excited for fall! Its getting to that point in the summer when I'm over all the summer styles and I'm ready to cozy up in a sweater and watch college football (2 more weeks! Geaux Tigers!), unfortunately "cooling off" in Dallas, TX means the high is 85 not 105...hardly sweater weather. 

The ability to transcend seasons is one thing that I love about this fun, feminine midi skirt, it's definitely a great transitional piece for your wardrobe whether it's worn with tights or a crop top. I've styled midi skirts for cooler weather  here and  here.

Unfortunately, this year I don't have any summer vacation plans. I didn't think it was that big of a deal until all my coworkers constantly ask if I'm taking any time off and then look at me sadly when I say no. I guess I'll just have to plan sometime really fun next year to make up for it! That being said, with all the fun prints around stores this summer....I sure can pretend to be on vacation!

I ran across this top at H&M, and for under $25 I just knew I had to add it to my closet! It's such a fun palm tree print to finish out summer in. It's currently sold out online - but, I did see it in store this past weekend, so if you have an HM near you go grab one!
