Hey Everyone! Can you believe Fall is basically here, and I still have ever-growing to-do list?! Two things things I’ve been working on accomplishing is master this self-photography thing. I just got a camera, and this stuff is no joke, but I’m going to take it one step at a time. Also, I have a goal of finishing this book, En El Pais Que Amamos, by Diane Guerrero. I’ve literally been reading this book so slowly because my Spanish has been rusty. So hopefully, once I finish this one and a few others, I can share everything I’ve been reading or read this year.
Anyways, since it’s been a minute since I’ve shared any fashion posts, I’ve got a new problem. Well, maybe not a problem –more like a challenge. Fall is coming, and I’m trying to prep my closet.
I mean, it’s a weird time between the last days of Summer and the start of the Fall season. The weather can be tricky too. For instance, here in Mississippi, we’re still getting high 80s-90 degree weather around here. But there are some days where even the Deep South can’t scape temporal chills. We’ve already begun to see the transitional rains and chilly mornings to remind us of Fall’s return.
So, if you live in climate that’s quite unpredictable when it comes to the Fall season, I have some tips for you, especially if you’re interested in shopping your own closet.
SHOULD I WEAR MY SANDALS or Nahh?
Yeah, you can wear sandals still, but make sure that you’re transitioning to colors to best suit your Fall color scheme. Neutral suede sandals are great year-round accessories.
EXPERIMENT WITH YOUR OUTERWEAR
Jackets and light sweaters are a must for transitional weather. However, a great outwear piece doesn’t always come cheap. I converted an old denim dress that formerly belonged to my mother to my outerwear for this look. The dress-jacket isn’t too thin or too thick, so it makes for the perfect chill defender.
PUT LAST SEASON’S PIECES TO WORK
And to beat the heat, I’m wearing a lavender cotton T-Shirt that I definitely exhausted this past Spring/ Summer paired with a thin plumb elastane skirt that I. picked up a few years ago. Both are thin enough to keep you from building too much of a sweat while that temperature rise during midday.
