In this 90 degree heat and humidity it’s been impossible to practically “transition to fall.” I am not one who foregoes the forecast and jumps into my boots and sweaters sooner just to be sweating my booty off. So, my solution to this madness is to incorporate more fall colors into my wardrobe, but still wear light and breathable fabrics. Luckily, we’ve had a few cooler days lately (and by cooler I mean 80 instead of 90) and I was able to slip into a pair of jeans for a day of running around visiting with local boutiques. These pants are the only denim purchase I’ve made so far this season and I am in LOVE!! I saw them on J Brand’s Instagram a few months ago and knew that I needed a pair, but when one of my favorite local boutiques, II Brunettes, got them in it was a given! Grey jeans have been a huge trend starting last spring and have been worn by celebrities such as Alexa Chung, Cara Delavigne and Kim Kardashian. I’m a huge fan and feel like they give me a little bit of a rock & roll vibe every time I wear them. A lot of times I will play that up by wearing a cheeky graphic tee, but for my boutique visits I needed to be a little more put together. Plaid is another huge trend for fall and this white and black plaid is a perfect transitional piece with the light colors and sheer fabric still keeping you cool. Later on, you can wear the plaid trend with some darker colors and in wool or cotton fabrics {I can’t wait}. To throw in a little contrast of color I wore a pair of camel colored suede booties. I brought out some serious fall colors in a big statement necklace, which I then paired with my blue crossbody bag to pull out the blues. To add a bit of drama and another ode to fall I puckered up with a bold burgundy lip! I love a burgundy lip and unlike bright red, it’s very wearable!! This is an outfit that you can wear now and when it gets cooler just throw on a black leather jacket and go!

      1. I did not know they had a mini one … I have always liked their tote sized ones. Now that I am looking for a crossbody, I will have to shop and look for this bag 🙂
