Good morning everyone! We have had the most beautiful fall weather, but here in Utah, it can change literally ANY second. I have never loved packing around a big heavy coat while I’m out and about running errands and such. But I also don’t like to be cold either. I’m getting worse and worse that way…..I hardly will even go skiing anymore! But wearing a vest? It’s such a great option and alternative to a coat. And you can make them as warm as what you pair with them! THIS one, from JCrew is so fun! I’ve wanted a leopard coat for so long, but just haven’t ever found the right one. A full coat in leopard can just be way too overwhelming on a petite girl. But this can give you that feel without being too much! It’s faux fur, and can be worn with a heavy sweater or a lightweight tee as I’ve done here. It’s so warm and cuddly….I LOVE it!
Here are some other vests I’m loving right now!
Styling yourself when transitioning from season to season with great style can be really tricky! What I like to think about is putting together fall pieces with summer pieces. Like for instance here, faux fur with white Converse. Or say a summery floral dress with a leather jacket and booties. Or maybe a chunky sweater with a light frilly skirt and tall boots. Does that make sense? Just by putting my white sneakers with my outfit here, gives it a fall but not-so-fall look. If I would have put booties with it, (and that would have worked, but this was a warm fall day) it would have given it more of a cold fall day look! Now I know that some of these particulars might not mean anything to you, and I’m not saying it should, but my fashion is something I think about ALL THE TIME, and the transitioning of seasons is the hardest of all to get exactly right.
Below are some examples of mixing summer and fall for the PERFECT look!
- Summer Dress + Leather Jacket + Suede Booties
- Sweater + Frilly Skirt + Suede Mules
- Floral Bomber Jacket + Sweater Dress + Tennies
- Knit Trousers + Graphic Tee + Floral Velvet Booties
Do you get what I’m trying to say? Whatever summery piece you want to hurry and wear before it’s too cold, think about pairing it with a heavier fall piece, and you’ll be perfectly balanced!
HAPPY DAY FRIENDS!
