Fall Transitions

Long Sleeve Artist Tee from J. Crew Factory
Scalloped Sidewalk Skirt from J. Crew Factory. The J. Crew website didn’t have this color so I linked it through Amazon.

This time of year is so hard! I want fall to be in full swing already but it gets so hot by mid-afternoon I would die of heat stroke if I walked home from school in my sweater and bean boots combo. Which is why I’m here to tell you about the best fall transition outfit: a skirt and long sleeve top!

I have J. Crew Sidewalk skirts in so many colors but I love the scallops on this one (thanks Mom!). And it pairs so nicely with my “pumpkin spice” shirt! This color wasn’t available on the website but they did have a nice navy striped shirt that would be perfect for fall. Since I was on the Cape (not quite but almost across the bridge) in this photo I opted for sandals to make it a little more summery.

Ignore my hair, I had just ran a 10K.

Practically the same look but I swapped out the sandals for ballet flats. I picked out a different Sidewalk Skirt (J. Crew Factory didn’t have this color on their website but I found a ton on Poshmark!) and a black sweater from Banana Republic Factory. This sweater is from a a few years ago but here is a similar one!

Who doesn’t go pumpkin picking with out their pearls?

And now we’ve broken out the tall boots. This is the same sweater from above with a skirt from Loft that I bought at a consignment store. This isn’t the same skirt, but I love the buffalo plaid!

You don’t have to pull out all the heavy duty sweaters just yet but here are some colors to incorporate into your outfits to start the transition to fall:

  • Navy
  • Gold
  • Mustard Yellow
  • Deep Reds
  • Burnt Oranges
  • Black

And you don’t need to go shopping for a whole new wardrobe! Look at what you have and see how versatile it can be. Changing up the pants/skirt/necklaces you wear with a sweater can give it a whole new look!

Let me know your favorite fall trends in the comments!

The Teal Sweater

You probably recognize this sweater from every photo I posted around Spring Break. What started as a cute sweater at my favorite consignment store on the Cape turned into a lifesaver in Florida.

It was the perfect sweater for the transition into spring.

We left the Cape and headed straight to the airport to visit my cousin in Florida. We’ve only been to Florida at the end of August so we were not prepared for the weather that was about to hit us when we reached MCO.

Who knew Florida could be so cold?!

I had packed these ears to wear with the matching dress but it was rainy and cold. It probably would have felt warmer if it was cold at home but the weather in Florida and the weather in Massachusetts was pretty much the same.

Meet me at the boardwalk

The next day we went to Animal Kingdom to see my cousin at work and it was sunny! So I went for the cropped leggings that somehow matched my new sweater. I threw on an orange tank top underneath and halfway through the day I was able to take off the sweater and feel like I was actually in the Sunshine State.

On our last two days there the weather had finally warmed up and the sweater was left in the room. I did keep with the teal trend though.

Stay stylish!

A Day on the Vineyard

One of my favorite places is the Vineyard so I wanted to share all my favorite things with you guys!

We usually Take the Island Queen from Falmouth so our first stop is looking at all the shops in Oak Bluffs.

This yellow dress is from J. Crew.  I got it from a consignment store but there are tons on Poshmark if you search J. Crew yellow dress. Use code MARISSAMOQ to get $5 added to your account when you sign up for Poshmark.

This dress is from Vineyard Vines! Here is the link to the dress on Poshmark but just a warning this dress wrinkles easily!

After getting a donut at Back Door Donuts we stop by Vineyard Vines. We probably spend more time outside playing corn hole than we do looking inside!

One of my favorite activities is picking out which house I’ll buy one day… This one is definitely in the running! You can also find the Gingerbread Cottages in Oak Bluffs. It’s a neat place to walk around and you can even tour one!

Then we wind up in Edgartown. I usually stop by the Vineyard Vines in Edgartown too. I always stop in the Lilly store to try stuff on because we usually go right before the APS. This past visit I ended up buying something full price! It was just too cute to pass up.

For lunch we went to the Seafood Shanty. It’s right on the water and you can see the Chappy ferry go back and forth and back and forth and back and forth (it’s a 527ft ride!).

My bathing suit is from Vineyard Vines and my cover up is my first ever Lilly purchase from the APS sale in 2015! I couldn’t find a similar one  but they still have tons of beautiful ones on their website!

Then I took a leap of faith of Jaws bridge. It took me forever to get on the rail but it was so much fun! If you’re planning on jumping and you aren’t a D1 gymnast make sure to bring two friends- one to take your picture and one to help you get up!

I don’t know about you but I’m dreaming of summer!
