Well guys, it’s finally here. The season of crisp air, blanket scarves, bonfires, sweaters, football, Halloween, and Pumpkin Spice Lattes is upon us. And I, for one, could not be more ready. As of yesterday, it is officially fall!
Shirt: JCPenney’s Shorts: Old Navy Booties: old Purse: Steve Madden
So today, in honor of the last day of summer and the beginning of fall, I am sharing a look that (in my opinion) highlights the best of both seasons.
I don’t know what the weather is like where you guys are from, but here in Oklahoma it does not feel like fall yet. Temperatures are still in the high 80’s and 90’s and I’m getting really sick of this heat.
In an effort to stay cool, while still preparing for fall fashion, I paired these orange printed shorts with a white peasant blouse and cognac ankle booties. One of my favorite style tricks for this time of the year is to pair summery outfits with cute ankle booties. It creates a more grounded look with a fall vibe, while still staying cool in dresses, skirts, or shorts.
One of the reasons I love this outfit is because of the color! And that’s not just because these shorts are a great addition to a game day outfit (Go Pokes!) It’s because these shorts are so unique. I just love the pattern and the brightness of the colors. Every outfit needs a standout piece, and these shorts are the ticket!
This purse has been one of my summer staples, and I’m sure it will be something I carry with me into the fall as well. For some reason, I am drawn to browns, blacks, and whites together. I think it might have to do with the contrast of that color combination. But in all seriousness, this is a combo yowill see me wear time and time again.
As excited as I am about fall (I mean I love Pumpkin Spiced Lattes as much as the next girl), I going to miss the summer. Wow, I can’t believe I just said that. I mean, I’m not going to miss the constant sweating, or the sunburns, or the endless heat. But I am going to miss the beach, and swimming, and late nights, and snow-cone dates, and baseball games. On the bright side, one great season filled with memories is being replaced by another great season to create memories with. (Was that too sappy? Eh, I don’t really care.)
Enjoy your fall while it lasts, guys!
