How to Take Your Favorite Summer Pieces Straight Through to Fall

Hi friends,

Hope you’re all enjoying the weekend!

We’re kind of in that weird between-seasons time where stores are putting all of their Fall clothes on display, but it’s still too hot to stray from Summer-wear.

I’ve been asking around on Instagram, and it seems like most of you guys are taking this time to peruse both Summer and Fall pieces; I’m right there with you, starting to stock up for Fall but still taking advantage of the warm-weather clothes that are now getting marked down.

I’m expecting that, like with most other years, the change to cooler weather will be a bit delayed getting here, but once it comes it won’t be gradual.

In New Jersey especially, it seems like sometimes the seasons change overnight; but don’t worry, you’ll still be able to wear that cute new tank you just bought, or even extend the time you have to wear those great denim shorts.

The trick to getting more wear out of your Summer clothes: use layering to make them Fall- and even Winter-appropriate!

Below are a few of my favorite Summer looks and ways that I plan on continuing to wear them straight through Fall.

This white bodysuit is a recent Amazon find and goes perfectly with my beloved striped shorts from Shein, braided sandals, and a pair of sunglasses. It also works perfectly for Fall when I add a cute plaid, fringe cardigan, jeans, and some booties.

The majority of this cute tee and shorts outfit can be updated for cooler weather. Get some more wear out of the shorts by throwing on a cozy sweater and some cute patterned sneakers. The ever-popular Nordstrom Sale tee and Tory Burch bag go great with a leather jacket and patterned sneaks, as well.

I personally love to wear camis all year long; they’re so versatile and can go with pretty much anything. Wear a basic black cami with shorts or jeans in the Summer and dress it up with cool accessories. Add on a flannel shirt, worn open or closed, to flawlessly Fall-ify the look.

Okay, this is my favorite Fall glow-up of the bunch! This Venus tee goes great with shorts and a some yellow sandals for a Summery pop of color, but it also looks amazing with leopard print pants, booties, and a stylish Fall hat (even though my husband has already promised to laugh at me whenever I wear this hat, lol).

As always, I’d love to hear about your own thoughts on layering and see how you use it to create some great Fall outfits.

Share some of your suggestions or favorite layering pieces below!

And don’t forget that links to all of my outfits (including the ones shown above) can now be found on my Shop My Looks page, found in the main menu of my blog!

I’ll be back with some big updates soon…until then, happy styling!

Fall Fashion Under $50 on Amazon

Hey guys,

Hope you all enjoyed the weekend!

There are still about six weeks left of Summer, but I’m already starting to fill out my Fall wardrobe and am sure plenty of you are, too!

I get so excited about the changing of seasons, bringing back old clothes that are better for cool weather, and creating new seasonal looks.

I’ve been browsing Amazon a lot lately and have found some really great items to wear in Autumn.

Check them out, and let me know where else you stock up on new clothes for crisper weather!

This cardigan has a hood, is under $35, and comes in seven colors, including olive green which is one of my favorites for Summer or Fall!

Faux suede skirts just scream Fall, in my opinion, as does this great light brown. This skirt comes in nine color options and is under $20.

I love the cute design on this $16 graphic tee. It would go perfect with some jeans and you could even layer it with an open flannel shirt.

This is another cheap graphic tee at $15. I definitely laughed when I read what it says, even though I’m not much of a pumpkin spice person, myself. (A scary thought, I know.)

This waffle knit top comes in over 10 different colors and has a casual tie-detail in the front. As with many other Amazon clothing items, price varies by size/color choice, but all are under $20 and some under $!0.

What’s Fall without a long, cozy cardigan to wear when the air first starts getting that bite to it? I really love all 5 color options on this $25 sweater.

Leather jackets are undoubtedly my favorite fashion item for fall. You get the look for less money with this faux leather moto jacket, under $50.

Fuzzy hoodies are cool because you can wear them straight through into winter. Plus, we ALL obsess over that plushy softness.

I’m really liking this striped short sleeve shirt. It comes in 9 different colors.

Of course there has to be something animal print on this list! This pullover is cute and I love the cool tone of the colors. Another great piece for the cooler weather.
