You guys, you guys, you guys, we are so close to fall *deep inhale* I can almost smell it.
Every year I savor these days right here. Football is about to begin, boots are about to be worn…I like being on the verge almost as much as I like being in the middle of it.
Yeah I try to distract myself by wearing the things I love most about summer for a while. But I can’t help but want to sneak in a jacket or two.
So I’ve got some ways you can start styling styling your summer looks with a more fall-like feel.
These pictures were taken by the talented Brittany of Southern Roots Photography at the West Town Mall Back to School fashion show this August!
If you’re ready for jackets…(ME!)
This look is from White House Black Market. I watched her walk down the runway and I instantly wanted every piece to get in my closet.
The sheath dress is made more fall appropriate with a great jacket (I mean GREAT jacket), neutral heels and a brown bag. The fact that the necklace, shoes and bag all echo the same warm brown color, really pulls this look together. It makes it more appropriate for fall and totally doable even if it’s still a little warm outside.
If you’re ready for layering…
This simple, comfortable and yet still totally chic look is from Charming Charlie.
And this look makes it official: the outfit possibilities with a chambray shirt are now endless.
If you’re going to pull this off, make sure the dress is simple and/or has a darker color to it so that it doesn’t look like you’re playing dress up. Add a great statement necklace like the model has on and simple stud earrings to polish up the look.
Really, this would be so comfortable and perfect for all day events.
If you’re ready for sweaters…
This ultra light weight sweater couldn’t be any more perfect for right now. This look is from The Limited and that great bag is from Vera Bradley.
Every piece of this look will go miles in your closet. I can see that sweater with the ever popular jeans/boots/scarf combo. The jean skirt would work seemlessly into so many combo’s like tights, booties, tucked in long sleep shirt and a great big necklace; or an oversized sweater and Keds; how about boots and a half tucked button down with a chunky statement necklace.
I think I just talked myself into buying that bad boy…
Pick up any (or ALL) of these items at West Town Mall! And let’s get the cozy feel of fall all revved up now. #seriously
