As I sit and write this, it’s actually cold and rainy outside, and it finally feels like fall is here!  A few days ago when I shot this look, it wasn’t quite as cold, but it was overcast and cool enough to wear a little sweater.  I styled this outfit because I wanted to show how easily you can transition a spring trend into fall.  Gingham was probably the standout spring print.  Florals and stripes are always big for spring, but this past season gingham was the fun, fresh wildcard.  It’s incredibly versatile however, because black and white prints have classic, seasonless appeal.  These particular pants are not heavy enough for a cold winter day, but they definitely work for a cool-ish fall day.  I could have layered a lightweight coat or jacket for additional warm, and opted for booties instead of sandals, but again it wasn’t quite that cool.  I just got really excited to wear a sweater 🙂  Alsoooooo, I’m wearing Lime Crime’s velvetine in cashmere on the lips.  It’s honestly one of my favorite colors for fall/winter!

Summer Style, Fall Colors



So far the heat has not let up.  I have to admit I’m a bit disappointed, because October feels very “fall” to me.  As soon as pumpkins start popping up in stores, (and with Halloween around the corner) it seems a given that the weather should turn cool.  I yearn to bust out my ankle boots and lightweight coats, but we’re not even close right now.  I can barely think about boot shopping, and that’s NOT normal.  I’m kinda over the bright colors and airy florals that define the spring/summer season, but I still need to dress comfortably for the heat.  Enter this slouchy shirtdress from H&M.  It’s super lightweight and breezy, but the olive color is very fall-propriate!  I chose to accent the dress with hints of gold and amber in my accessories, further emphasizing the autumn palette.  It might not be the cozy sweaterdress I wish I was wearing, but it’s a step in the right direction.  Out of curiosity, what kind of weather are you experiencing in other parts right now?!  Xxo Luisa
