Transitional Dressing

This is the time when everyone starts talking about transitional dressing. Hard to imagine when it is still 100 degrees outside. Despite the high heat, I'm still seeing women with big scarves around their necks or boots with skirts. Personally, I would be dying of heat stroke but, hey, maybe they're just really excited for fall. That said, when it DOES actually cool off, it is good to have a game plan for late September/early October. Here are a couple of ways I like to transition.

1. Add layers. Not a lot but maybe a vest or sweater (lightweight, of course). Maybe even a jacket for the evening.

2. Change up sandals for boots with bare legs.

3. Break out your jeans! Keep it more bare on top so it doesn't look too heavy yet.

4. Wear a little more makeup. In the summer, I frequently go without a lot of makeup, save mascara, a little bronzer, and lip balm. But eyeshadow and lipstick don't seem as heavy and sticky once the humidity calms down.

5. Add more jewelry. Really, you should always be doing this but, at the hottest of the hot, it can be hard to layer on bracelets and necklaces if they are making you sweat. Once it cools, they won't, so no more excuses.

Here's a cute transitional outfit:
