One of my favorite things about living in Colorado is the change of seasons. While summer sunshine and heat will always be my favorite (thank you ASU!), I’m starting to get excited about cooler temps, football and fall fashion. Colorado mornings and evenings are now chili and fall is definitely in the air (but thank goodness my iPhone weather app is still showing upper 80s during the day all next week!)
One of the most challenging aspects of the changing seasons in Colorado is getting dressed. I actually heard someone refer to this issue as “Bipolar-ado” and for those of you that live here, you know what I mean. There are many days I’ve experienced all four seasons in one day – not even kidding. Definitely keeps you on your toes. BUT (silver lining here) think of all of the outfit combos necessary to dress for four seasons in a day!
My bestie, Erin, just visited me over the summer and gave me this cute shirt from JCrew (thanks girlie! I LOVE it!)….I’ve worn it on repeat all summer long with a white skirt or white pants. (Although it is no longer available, I linked a similar style in this post.) I’ve been loving yellow and this skirt’s color is more mustard and makes me think fall. This color combo is one of my favorites and it represents the transition from summer to fall perfectly. Mixing and matching pieces from different seasons is a perfect way to get even more leverage out of your closet. Think basic summer tanks with an updated fall jacket. Or a summer skirt with your favorite fall blazer. What are some of your favorite transition pieces? Would love to know!
