Who’s ready for cold weather? ME(and my closet)! It’s like summer isn’t ready to let us go and fall isn’t ready to deal with us yet and I’m not going to be patient much longer. We are in this limbo between summer and fall where “you’re hot then your cold, you’re yes then you’re no”(yes I just quoted Katy Perry) and you are tearing your room apart to figure out how to wear something that doesn’t look summery yet doesn’t make you sweat in the heat..right? It’s almost October and I’m sure you are ready for fall clothes like me but you can’t figure out how to find a happy medium between these two seasons that can’t make up their mind. Well I feel ya and I too am aboard this struggle bus we call Texas weather. Fall is all about layering and summer is all about not yet we are supposed to find something to wear for the time being? Cool one. So to solve this problem, I have decided to style one outfit two ways, one being for warmer temps and one for early fall so that maybe you too can reuse an outfit from summer, make a few simple changes, and voila you are saving money and dressing for the season!
My summer look consists of a simple black shirt, a polka dot skirt, strappy heels, a layered necklace, and my favorite patterned purse. Yes it’s almost all from Old Navy and no I’m not addicted? That’s a question because I’m not sure what is considered addicted but I’m walking a fine line. I find seriously everything there for a decent price. It is also like 20 seconds from my house so that doesn’t help my bank account but what’s money anyways? It’s just a piece of paper that we let control our lives so we might as well use it on things we like? right…haha at least that is my logic on life. I actually found this purse in some random store in a mall that I would never normally go into but the purse caught my eye in the window. It looks like a designer purse but it was only 20 bucks! I wore this outfit probably about five times this past summer, I know I am such an outfit repeater(lizzy mcguire anyone?) Anyway, this is my summer version of this outfit, scroll on down to see how I changed it up for fall!
My fall look consists of a short sleeve sweater, the same polka dot skirt, black booties, a leather blazer, a brown floppy hat, a statement necklace, and a black tote. Whoever said black and brown make a frown must not know anything about fashion because it is my FAVORITE color combination, especially in the fall! I basically just switched out the black t-shirt from the previous outfit for a sweater and layered with my leather blazer, changed the heels to booties, added a hat, and finally, changed the necklace and purse. & that my fellow fashion friends is the recipe for how to make a summer to fall transition outfit! It’s time to leaf summer behind and welcome fall with open arms & empty wallets.
