Sequins and Sea Breezes: Transitioning

Transitioning

9/30/2014

Happy last day of September! It's officially fall (can you believe it?) but it still feels like summer outside here in Florida but it feels like the Arctic  Tundra in my office so dressing for the day can sometimes be a bit difficult. I want to dress like it's fall but I also don't want to pass out from heat exhaustion! One of my favorite summer to fall transition outfits is a lightweight sweater with a pair of shorts or a maxi skirt. I still get to feel like I'm dressed slightly for fall but I also don't sweat to death either. A definite win-win in my opinion!


If you read my blog post last  Monday you might have noticed that I wore this outfit to brunch and it was the perfect brunch outfit. The sweater is lightweight and loose (so I can stuff my face of course) but still warm enough to keep me from freezing inside in the air-conditioning. To keep with my summer to fall transition, I paired it with a pair of denim shorts, and since we ended up moving outside I was definitely thankful for that. I guess I can't complain too much that it's almost October and I'm still sporting shorts but I do miss real fall.  I'm one of those people that ALWAYS has cold feet so I can wear booties any time of the year and not be super hot so I topped off my look with a pair of comfy studded booties. I haven't figured out whether this is a blessing or a curse but I will tell you, it's hilarious when someone accidentally touches my poor freezing feet and gets quite the shock! What's your favorite summer to fall transition outfit? Is anyone else still experiencing summer heat or are we the only ones left?
