Transitioning From Summer to Autumn
There's that awkward period between the warmer months and cooler months where you don't actually know what to wear because one minute it could be 80 degrees sunny and another minute it could be 65 degrees and cloudy. How do you take what you've been wearing during those sweaty summer months and translate them into the fall?
I won't go too much into detail in this post since I've already talked about layering in my last one.
This is just a quick, SUPER SPEEDY post on an outfit I styled on Polyvore and since I liked how it turned out, I thought I'd share it with you guys. Hopefully you get some inspiration from this!
1. The bustier (personally my favorite): Easy to wear for the summer, whether you like wearing them on their own, with a sweater, or under a sheer top.
2. Denim shorts: Do I even have to explain this!?
BRINGING IT ON OVER TO FALL
1. Some days will be a little cooler than what you're used to during those hotter months so I suggest wearing something light but still breathable. That's where the kimono comes in. The print on this one is absolutely stunning. The red also helps make it more fall appropriate as it reminds me of the changing colors of the leaves!
2. Thigh high socks: This is optional but it's a nice little layer of extra warmth in case you get cold easily.
3. We don't want the shoes to cut your legs off, since wearing thigh highs can be tricky so wearing the same color shoe will definitely help lengthen your legs. Black is always a slimming color, so that's why I chose it over any other color but feel free to experiment!
4. During this time, a lot of people are going back to school, so I included a backpack as an accessory. It's a casual element of this outfit and the brown just helps warm everything up.
5. Beanies! Hats aren't my favorite thing to wear because I am so picky about my hair but I think it adds a down-to-earth feel and brings the whole outfit together.
1. This is up to you. I took the red from the kimono and translated that on the lips.
2. The eyes should be clean and natural because the rest of the outfit is pretty bold, with all the lace and studs and flowers going on. But you can opt for mascara to accent the eyes a bit.
1. Keeping it simple. Like I said, there's already quite a few things going on and I don't want it to become cluttered. The bracelet is gold to match the hardware on the shorts.
2. The cat ring is just for fun but also because it reminds me of Asia for some reason and I don't know. It just goes with the kimono and flowers and such.
