Wait, what? Two fashion posts in a row!?
Yes, that’s right. Totally unintentional but the combination of not having my planned monday post ready, the cool-weather weekend we just experienced and the oodles of back to school catalogues that just showed up in my mailbox has me considering fall layers. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not ready for summer to end. Not even close. Back to school sounds like a swear word at the moment but in a few weeks it will be unavoidable so I thought I would ease myself into it with a transition post and share a few summer wardrobe pieces that I will most likely be sporting this fall.

These puppies came back in style quickly considering it seems like yesterday I had a few pairs in my goodwill pile. Anyone else? Regardless, they are back and I’m pretty excited about it. Mostly for their 70’s charm but also because (hello!) legs for days!
Side note: Loving the mid or high-rise fit with a hem the grazes the ground (like pic 1 or 2 above).

Probably not the most practical item for fall since I’m not sure I’ll be brave enough to wear with socks, but this summer I’ve had to be purposeful about not wearing them everyday so my other shoes didn’t get jealous, so I’m not sure I’ll be able quit them just because the weather changes a bit. At the least I’m guessing they’ll be on repeat through mid-October :)

I can hardly wait to get my overalls out of seasonal retirement and I’ve gotten a lot of use out of the jumpsuits this summer so they will definitely be in my closet this fall.
- itsums – I can’t say enough about this online app/social space where you can set a budget and then start “pinning” items to your project board and let the app keep track of all the products while add things up for you… all in one place. Seriously a God-send and worth trying.
- @ellabrooksblog on Instagram – she is much more California cool than mio, but I find her feed so sweet, inspiring and share worthy.
- Emilie Maslow and her pinterest boards – a fellow pacific northwest girl and friend who has the most amazing eye for cool real life style as well as the catalogue kind.
- Kendi Everyday blog – Probably the only fashion blogger I follow consistently. She wears a lot of heels and outfits that aren’t as practical for my life but she keeps it fresh, tries new things and is fun and not stuffy.
So there you have it. Summer pieces that have fall staying power and my secret weapons for doing anything stylish and on budget.
What are you looking forward to wearing this fall?
