Summer to Fall Transitions

I’ll be frank- the next few weeks are some of my least favorite. It’s not that I don’t love summer, and it is still technically summer. And it’s not that I don’t look forward to fall, at this point I’m so thrilled for all the things to come, I can’t wait for the temps to drop. But. When I think of summer to fall transitions, I think of layers; adding sweaters to sundresses, slowly beginning to wear boots, adding leather to outfits, start wearing light jackets. And. It’s insanely hard to do any of that, or even get excited about fall, when it’s still 100 outside.

I may be in the minority here, but I almost wish we got a little break about now. To sweat out the last of summer. For the cool of fall to settle in so we can switch our wardrobes. It’s just that the transition from summer to fall isn’t always as chic or layered as I wish it could be, it’s more wondering how long I can get away with shorts and linens and all things that don’t show sweat.

How do we transition to cooler seasons if it’s still hot? If the transitional fashions we’re presented with are only about layers, what do we do when we only want to take things off?

At this point, I don’t know. I know I’m supposed to tell you about easing in. And layering. And at some point if we wear boots with our dresses and bring sweaters, that eventually we’ll need those boots and sweaters.

I’m excited for that day. But, it’s still so hot and there are days when layering or boots or even telling you to put a button down over your outfit feels like a lot. And I’m not sure what to tell us at that point.

So. Here are some of the ways I’ve tried to transition from summer to fall in the past.

In all honesty, I’m not sure what I’m wearing to transition from summer to fall this year. Some of that depends on the weather, some of that depends on what I can put together. Transitions can be hard- from fashion ones to personal ones. And I know we can’t take the next few weeks off (unless you know how we can! Then please lmk!). From now on I’m working on transitioning from summer to fall, and I can’t wait to show you what that looks like!

Below I’ve linked some of the above outfits and some of my fave fall pieces! If you need me I’ll be manifesting cooler temps so we can wear them all!
