Well, folks, we’ve reached that time of year. Chances are every blogger you follow is currently talking “fall transition pieces” or “sweater weather” or “the booties you need” right now, and truthfully, it’s for good reason. Fall is the season that most people will be shopping next. Sweaters and jeans and booties and such are the pieces that lots of gals will be looking to add to their closets.
That said, we’re also in the season that I consider to be SoCal’s true summer. August, September, and even October are when things tend to seriously HEAT up around here, making me think a little more about beating the heat than fall fashion. So while I’ll no doubt still be wearing (and posting) breezy, airy dresses and denim shorts for a while, I’ll also be sprinkling in some lightweight fall pieces that I can’t wait to wear like my favorite black skinnies.
I snagged these Madewell skinnies last year (seen here and here) and am still loving the sleek, all black look. It’ll be a while before I’m pairing them with any sweaters, but a pretty little lace-trimmed blouse like this one from Wayf is not so far off. (I also love this blouse now paired with a faux leather skirt like this one or this one and simple booties.)
Which pieces are you guys looking forward to once the temps cool down?
