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.
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!
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:
- Mustard Yellow
- Deep Reds
- Burnt Oranges
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!
