what to wear when it’s fall with summer weather…

while i think we have had some really bizarre weather as of late…one thing that usually doesn’t change…especially here in the bay area…is the changing of seasons from summer to fall…while the weather remains hot…

what does one wear?

i’ve written several blog posts on how to transition from summer to fall…when the weather does not change along with the season…i will provide some links on the bottom if you would like to look back on some of those posts…because the tricks are simple…and much of it relies on your color change…and texture change…

so how does color change work? for the most part…i start looking at my wardrobe…and while i am still neeeding to wear light clothing…as to stay cool in the heat…i look at my light weight clothing that has more color hues of fall…

as in this first example…

as you can see…i am still wearing my summer cropped white jeans…but i’ve added some darker hues…from my hunter green tory burch shoes…green & browns in my light sweater…to my brown tote handag…

in this outfit…i am feeling cool…but sporting some “fall colors” to bring in the new season…

the shoes are still light…certain days are still just to hot for boots…but i’m keeping away from true summer sandals…and the color – the dark hue…helps in making it look like a fall outfit…

i wanted to show a close-up of the necklace for two reasons…while the green can go either way light or dark…the goldish brown hues bring in the fall colors…

but on a side note…i wanted to bring in the fact that when you buy things you truly love…they do start to go together…this sweater and necklace were purchased on such different time frames…but they go so well together…don’t you think? i always tell my clients…buy what you love…the colors that speak to you…

if you would like some more ideas on wearing your white jeans in the fall…check out my blog post “how i transition my white jeans into fall…”

if the weather remains warm…do not put away those summer dresses…adding a jean jacket…or light sweater instantly changes the look….and for those slip dresses…or even strapless dresses…add a tee or blouse underneath…adding a fun layering piece…while wearing your summer duds…in fall…

and of course…do not forget the shoes…while i chose to still wear espadrille sandals…i chose a fun “pumpkin” color that just makes me think of october and fall…
