Tis the Season

Transition season that is! It is officially fall, but temperatures on many days are still delightfully warm. What’s a gal to wear?

DKNY dress from Bloomingdales, Chestnut Hill

Dark neutrals in lightweight fabrics are perfect for this time of year. This rayon dress by DKNY is an easy dress to throw on for work when you are pressed for time…it has an asymmetrical pocket and hem, other than that it is pure simplicity. Add bold accessories if you so choose, or go for a more minimalist look as seen here.

On this day I went for high open toe booties and understated silver hoops – sophisticated style without ‘trying too hard’.

The next choice was what to wear for a jacket…this buttery soft leather blazer brightened up the black and also added another texture…it is by Vince, found earlier this year at Revolve.

Ok, now the outfit is really sparking joy! This cashmere Burberry scarf that I have had forever tied the dress and jacket together beautifully! (Click on this link to learn how I brought the scarf back to life!)  Shoes by Stuart Weitzman keep the look current, not frumpy, and are quite comfortable considering the height.

Another detail that makes a big difference in the transition season is your lipstick color.  Deeper, warmer tones will change your whole look, regardless of what color you are wearing. One of my favorites, seen here, is Paramount by MAC.

Handbag choice during the transition season? Anything really goes, but this black leather tote was too heavy looking for hot summer days, so out it came for fall. Isn’t it great? The price was great too – only $29!!! – it is ZARA – found at Revolve. Yeah, that leads to another story

Happy Fall!

  • Your finds at Revolve are amazing! I love the dress and it fits beautifully. I just want to mention that I cannot access your posts from your e-mail to me as there is no working link. I believe you mentioned a while ago that you were having problems with the site.

    • Thanks for letting me know Rebecca – I have tested the link a few different ways and it seems to be working now. Let me know if it works next time. 🙂
