Sequins and Sea Breezes: Sweater-ish Weather

Sweater-ish Weather

10/14/2014

Ok, so it's not really sweater weather down here yet. It's still scorching hot here during the day so I haven't gotten to break out as many fall trends as I'd like but I have been trying to throw some fall into my wardrobe without looking completely silly or passing out from heat exhaustion. Lucky for me I'm usually cold so sporting a sweater in 80 degree temperatures doesn't affect me too bad. You'll usually catch me carrying around a cardigan even in the dead heat of summer just in case I go to a restaurant that happens to be freezing. 


One of my favorite things about fall (and spring for that matter) is the ability to layer warmer weather and cooler weather pieces! This is one of my favorite warmer weather skirts and instead of pairing it with a fun bright colored tank or crop top I decided to make it a bit more fall appropriate by wearing it with a (lightweight) crop sweater. Of course it's still a bit too warm out to break out the booties or a scarf with the sweater but for the time-being I'm pretty content with pairing sweaters with shorts and skirts!  And now I'm off to go listen to Taylor's new song on repeat over and over today! Has anyone else heard it? If so what do you think?

  1. I love this for the Florida "Fall" - the crop top is great and you still get the coverage that you want when you're in a restaurant or movie theatre that is blasting the AC!! Great look - I'm still obsessed with those strappy black heels - my favorite!!
