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.

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

On Trend: Top Picks of Leopard Print

Hi all,

For today’s post I’m sharing my favorite leopard print pieces.

Much like the snakeskin trend, it took me a little while to get into leopard print, but once I did I was so happy about it!

There is probably more I’ll add to this in future posts, but for now, here are my favorite leopard print items that I own, with links to buy.

Sneakers

I love these animal print Steve Madden sneakers because they’re so unique. They have a few different animal print patterns and add the perfect pop to a simple outfit.

Flats

These Lulus flats are so cute and can be paired with both dressy and causal outfits. Can’t go wrong!

Cropped Hoodie

The leopard pattern on this hoodie is awesome, and the lightweight material is great for Spring weather. It runs small, so you may want to size up.

Pants

These H&M “Treggings” can be worn as a casual pant or a dress pant. Wearing patterned pants is a bold move for me, but I think these are a great place to start.

Crop Top

This top is really cute with high-waisted jeans. The material is super lightweight and flowy, and it has a flattering, low neckline.

Cardigan

I love the lighter beige in the pattern on this sweater. It’s also slim fitting which I like. I wore this sweater last weekend with a black maxi dress to celebrate the arrival of warmer weather.

What’s your favorite pattern or clothing trend lately?

Comment below to let me know, and I’ll do a future post with my top picks!

Hope you all enjoy these super cute leopard print items. ❤ 🙂
