Welcome to September! That means only one thing…fall, right? WRONG! Hahahaha you thought summer was OVER? JUST KIDDING! Well, at least for some of us in certain parts of the US, we were just about to get our sweaters out…and then BAM. Ninety degree weather is baaaaaack. Now, I’m kind of a weather rebel. I mean, in some ways, I kind of have to be in order to get to wear some of my stuff more than like, once a year in California. However, I also get hot very quickly, so I also experience that same desire to change my style when September hits, but since the weather doesn’t want to change along with me, I gotta improvise. I’ve got some simple (hopefully!) ideas to help those of us sitting here in shorts and a strapless top, sweating, to keep our style from suffering for it!
Unexpected Denim + Fur Accents
I know. You’re like FUR?? Are you MAD? Well, that’s a question for another time. But back to the outfit. It may be too hot for jeans and you may be too bored for denim shorts. How about a little denim pinafore or some shortalls? I also LOVE fur (as many of you know!) and while it’s not the most wearable for indian summer, a little accent never hurt, right? Add some boots and a short sleeve tee, and you’ll have a little bit of a transitional style going on without sweating too much!
Layers are HARD when it’s warm. So the breathability factor is super important during this transition season. A breathable kimono (this one’s my own and coming soon!) and a graphic tee (again, coming soon!) are good fall-ish pieces to try out when it’s still sweltering outside.
Fall Trends…In Summer Lengths
Velvet is one of those awesome fall trends that I am of course, itching (I mean sweating really!) to wear! If you can find some of the fall fabrics, but in shorter lengths like this skirt, it really helps to make the piece wearable sooner, before the temperatures start to drop. So try a velvet flared mini skirt with a lightweight blousy button down. You’ll feel fall without the major deodorant fail.
Hope you guys are staying cool. Phew. Where’s my cold brew…
