What to Buy: Summer to Fall

Oh my god, shut up. It’s still hot out. It’s only been September for 5 minutes. – Everyone reading this right now. 

But just think of this post as an excuse to go shopping or something. Summer to fall is a weird time. It goes from being 100+ every day to being 70 overnight. It’s hard to make really good outfit choices because one second I’m a little chilly but by 4pm I’m sweating like crazy. There are tons of suggestions on what to do in order to transition a wardrobe between seasons. Keep wearing your favorite sundress but toss on a cardigan (duh). Wear sweaters with shorts. Change out your cute sandals for ankle boots although I actually saw Glamour magazine making a case for wearing your sandals. To each their own I suppose.

Waiting (Impatiently) for Sweater Weather…

The Pumpkin Spice Latte is officially back at Starbucks which means fall is almost here. Okay maybe it’s only the beginning of September and still an average of 106 degrees outside daily, but fall is coming. Even my local Target got in on the action albeit prematurely by featuring three straight mini aisles of pumpkin flavored goods (which had been completely ransacked). I already bought pumpkin spice coffee creamer and I am ready to be rocking sweaters daily.

I’ve already been wearing light, baggy sweaters since about Sunday because I got the most horrible back sunburn over Labor Day. It’s been my saving grace and protection from the sun. Sweaters are my absolute favorite item of clothing because they can be casual or dressed up. There are so many styles to choose from, and they keep you warm. There’s even some materials and cuts that can be worn during the transitional time between summer and fall. Or if you live in Arizona, just the days until suddenly one day its cold and you don’t know how that happened.

Labor Day Style Inspo

Ah, Labor Day. The unofficial end of summer is finally here. Too bad the Arizona heat won’t be out of here for at least another month. But it’s time to fully embrace the end of summer and fill the final days with fun activities. There are BBQs, beaches, lakes, boats, picnics, and so many other things to do. I have some really fun plans this weekend, but I’m lacking a little in the style department. I’m just not sure what to wear.

I feel like I’ve been so lazy lately and living in denim shorts, yoga pants, and tank tops. I’ve just been really uninspired, hating my clothes, or down on myself whatever the reason my outfits have been severely lacking. Going into this weekend I decided I should probably give off some better vibes so I looked around for some end-of-summer outfit inspiration.

Madewell Fall 2017 Lookbook

I feel like this is turning into a Madewell fan blog, but when I saw their fall lookbook I just had to write about it. There’s so many pieces I want to add to my wardrobe. Colder weather is my all time favorite despite the fact I hate being cold. I love layers, knits, and especially a good pair of jeans.

Madewell’s fall lookbook is filled with just those things. Tons of layers, denim, and is menswear inspired. I’m usually a little hesitant to try menswear pieces because I just don’t think they are super flattering to my body. That being said these seem to have very feminine dimensions to them.

View all of the looks on their Pinterest, and see my favorites below.

The List – Back to Class

There’s a line from one of my favorite movies, You’ve Got Mail, that goes like this:

Don’t you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address. On the other hand not knowing has its charms.

Now, sure, I don’t live in New York, and it’s not remotely close to fall around here. But there’s something about going blissful about going back to school. Since that film was released in 1998 I’ve always used it to encompass my feelings about the fall. Maybe it’s my Type-A personality or just the longing for a time where stress wasn’t a constant, but I genuinely love going back to school. Now that I’m entering what is supposed to be my final semester at college going back to class will be something I miss. Buying office supplies just doesn’t quite have the same ring to it.

These are a few of the things I find essential to making it through the semester. Headphones to drown out the noise, comfy clothes for hours spent studying, and the supplies to keep everything in line. Okay, so maybe its an attempt to keep things in line. College is a whole new breed of chaos sometimes.

The List – Rose Gold

Rose Gold is one of my favorite things ever. I’m addicted to buying it especially when it comes to jewelry. I’m still really disappointed I lost my favorite rose gold ring at the movies a few months ago. But, because of rose gold’s popularity, I constantly find new ones to “replace” it with. I just really love how rose gold looks with dainty, simple pieces. it’s just incredibly simple and pretty.
