Because I live in Florida the title should read “3 ways to transition into less scorching hot weather”. The summertime is hitting the road and hopefully it won’t be an asshole and let fall have its time to shine. There will be no more sweat from simply breathing and no fear of having to step outdoors. The world will be slightly less hot and it will load up on rainbows, kittens and complete happiness. Will I miss it? Who knows. Maybe I’ll miss wearing ripped up shorts and mini skirts, and short summer dresses. On the upside, I may continue to wear the marvelous brigade of culottes, culottes and more culottes.

I’m sharing 3 tips on how to perfect your fall transition wardrobe and 3 outfits to inspire you as you get ready dress for the new season.

Light Layers

With fall comes layers but if you add Florida into the equation, comes very light layers and open toed shoes. There is nothing worst than the feeling of a heat stroke while attempting to look fashionable. If you’re trying to pull off a model off duty or Natalie Off Duty look when it feels like 200 degrees outside, I suggest wearing sandals, cropped jeans, and a light layers such as a plain tee, a tank, a light vest, and a bandana to top it off. Just a FYI but these Vince Camuto shoes cost me ONE PENNY at Nordstrom Rack. Greatest day of my life.

Neckwear and closed shoes

Neckwear will bring any outfit out of its summer spree and into the fall. I’ve been on a culotte run and refuse to wear anything but culottes. As I was about to head out the door in sandals, culottes and a cropped blouse, I walked back inside and switched out my sandals for my Stan Smith’s and grabbed by a silky dark-colored scarf to give fall a warm welcome.

The Right Accessories

To be completely honest, the fall in florida will probably feel just as atrociously hot as the summer which is why I always keep out a few of my summer dresses in my closet to slip into on those unbearably sunny autumn days. Wear a mini bodycon dress with loafers, a light blazer (not pictured above), and a pop of autumn inspired colors as an accessory. Example: a maroon tote.

    Beautiful choices – I moved to Colorado from Florida 3 years ago and I totally know what you mean because Florida doesn’t ever quite get to fall. They just go straight into winter for a month or two, lol
