Fall in Love with this Crazy Weather

If you live anywhere near the South you know what I’m talking about when I say crazy weather. I have been in Memphis for a long weekend and literally packed everything & the kitchen sink. I had no clue what the weather was going to be likeā€¦ mornings are cold, afternoons are 90 degrees, it’s October.. WHAT IS THIS MESS!? 

My solution or attempt of “Fall-ing” is layers, layers, layers. Not only will you get maximum use out of your closet and perfect way to mix & match your closet but you can add or subtract layers throughout the day depending on the weather.  

1. Summer Shorts 

This is one of my favorite ways to transition into Fall. I get hot super easy so I often stick to shorts when others are fine in their jeans. It’s easy for shorts and boots to trickle into a strange territory but there are easy ways to make your outfit boho chic. 

-Stick to loose & longish shorts. Anything too short or too tight is a huge no-no.

-A light and loose sweater is all you need on top, a half tuck keeps you from looking super baggy. 

An easy way to add character and personality to your outfit is via layers. I love to layer boots with socks. Knee high boots look great with OTK socks or booties pair perfectly crew socks.

-My go to outfit right now is my favorite denim shorts, a cozy white tee and a flannel tied around my waist (you can throw on the flannel if you get cold!) + your favorite pair of booties!

2. Strappy Romper

During Summer time my closet is stocked full of easy, breezy rompers. I get so depressed when Fall rolls around and I have to switch out my closet. I decided it was time to reinvent them! You could pair them with a open fall sweater or throw a light sweater over it. I love this sweater because it comes pre-layered.

3. Breezy Dresses

If you know me, you know I tend to fill my closet to the brim with white dresses. I love how versatile they are and never go out of style! I can never part with them just because Summer is over. I paired the same layered sweater with my favorite white dress. Since this is basically a blank canvas for any look you could easily add statement necklaces, scarves, heels or whatever! I kept mine casual by adding my favorite flat OTK boots.
