“August is like the Sunday of Summer”
It’s hard to believe it is already the end of August and the start of Pumpkin everything is everywhere. This summer seemed to dash by, and while filled with lots of adventures and memories still seemed too short. While it is still warm out there, the hints of fall are starting to show themselves with the cooler nights, random leaves turning colors and back to school shopping. I myself really enjoyed myself fashion wise this summer. I didn’t write nearly enough about fashion or what I was wearing but the colors, patterns, shoes were giving me life!
Sometimes it is a bit hard to transition through the seasons especially when you live somewhere like new England where every day is a different story. One day can be 50 degrees and the next can be 80- literally. It is important, especially towards the end of summer to have outfits you can quickly shift that will make you feel comfortable in warm or cool temperatures. I will say i refuse to wear only closed shoes until I absolutely have to, I am indeed one of those people wearing sandals throughout September or as long as i can handle it. These outfits can either be used for warm days and also for cooler nights. Light jackets or blazers are key in these types of situations although you could throw a light cardigan over them as well.
If it becomes too warm you can then take off a layer and be nice and cool without worrying about giving up your look. Or add something on to cozy up again. Either way, each of these looks gives you a different way to transition and works really well for either season.
- Tip 1 | Add Layers
You can add layers as I mentioned above such as jackets, cardigans or a shawl to outfits that consist of tank tops or crop tops to add some warmth but yet quickly shed them if they become too hot.

- Denim | Universal thread | Target
- Faux Leather Jacket | JC Penney
- Shoes | Target
- Tip 2 | Wear all the Jumpsuits
They offer the perfect versatility you need when trying to choose an outfit for a day that may be both hot and cold. If you go with a longer pant jumpsuit all you need is to throw something on top and voila! Also pops of dark but rich colors are a great way to transition to fall but still keep the bold colors you’ve been using all summer. This red clutch offers that without overpowering the outfit.

- Sandals | Marshalls
Tip 3 | Wear light fabrics
Sometimes you can wear a long sleeve shirt or three quarter length sleeve shirt and still be cool. Making sure you are wearing the right fabrics can make you all the more comfortable in whatever weather you may be faced with.
- Mustard Top + Handbag | Humanity Style
- Slacks + Sandals | Marshalls
Tip 4 | Long Shorts or Culottes are a girl’s best friend
Pants that aren’t pants are the best. Why do I say that? Well by giving you some room to breathe and some air they can be used perfectly for either a warmer or colder situation. Gaucho pants, Bermuda shorts, culottes etc…

Tip 5 | Don’t give up bold colors + Experiment with Patterns
One thing you shouldn’t give up just because we are soon changing seasons is COLOR. Use that clutch, wear that yellow, utilize patterns and NEVER give up denim 🙂
These are the ways I’m embracing this transition into fall and I hope you will join me by experimenting with some new looks. Surprise yourself!
Experiment and be Bold,
