Summer to Fall Stripes

BR Factory Sweater (Similar) / J.Crew Factory Skirt (Similar) and Necklace / Madewell Flats (Similar

I’m trying to slowly transition my wardrobe from summer to fall. As much as I love fall, I want to appreciate summer for as long as I can. I started this outfit with a navy blue sweater, which is lightweight and great for any season, and added this summery striped skirt. A pop of red is perfect for this all blue ensemble and the gold necklace adds that extra bit of polish for work. What are you wearing to transition from summer to fall?

Jean Jacket and a Pencil Skirt

I love a good jean jacket. I have for a long time. As you can see I’m still wearing the same one from high school. If you can comfortably avoid taking yourself too seriously at work, a jean jacket is a nice way to switch up your typical work wear. I like how it tames this bright pink pencil skirt and keeps me warm in our frigid office during the summer months. I’d love to hear about what you’ve been wearing lately.

Floral Patchwork Wrap Blouse

This top is so me. It’s quirky, it’s undecided, it’s beautiful, it has many layers. And yet it works. It’s like organized chaos. I’m all about it. Somehow every pattern and every color is boldly on display at the same time. There’s a balance to the crazy that I’m obsessed with. It’s outfits like these that make me feel like I get to wear what’s on the inside: a patchwork of experiences that all somehow fit together to make this random but beautiful life. Also, I’m claiming this as my Mamma Mia shirt! It’s the type of shirt you can stuff in a suitcase and wear anywhere yet look confidently cool and at home. What outfit defines you?

White Flower Earrings

These white flower earrings are my favorite new piece of jewelry. I’ve been wearing them all summer with everything from casual outfits like this one to party dresses. They add such an interesting element to any outfit whether my hair is up or down. I especially love them with this white and red striped J.Crew top I found at Goodwill. What kind jewelry have you been gravitating toward lately?

P.S. My jeans are currently 40% off at Nordstrom.

A Summery Jumpsuit

Details: One Clothing Los Angeles Jumpsuit via Nordstrom (Similar jumpsuit) / Nines West Sandals

How cool is this flower print jumpsuit? It’s one of those statement pieces that makes me feel like a totally different person in a good way. It’s like an instant boost of confidence with its elongating features and bold print. My boyfriend bought it for my birthday this year, and I have to say he did a great job. I love the keyhole and bow in the front. Everything about it just works. And it’s the easiest outfit to put together. Just throw on some heels and subtle jewelry and the jumpsuit carries the look. What has been your go to look this summer?

Pink Tassel Earrings

The sun is out and it’s getting warmer and nicer by the day, which means it’s time to start adding bright colors and fun textures to your wardrobe. In preparation for the summer months, I purchased these BaubleBar Tassel Earrings because I knew they would be the perfect complement to white jeans and nautical tops and many other combinations. They’re versatile enough to wear with a maxi dress for dinner and drinks or with a white t-shirt and jean shorts for strolling around town. Right now I’m slowly starting to introduce them with outfits that are yearning for a pop of color, like this navy blue sweater with jeans. What are you starting to wear more of now that the weather is nice?

Blouson Sleeve Top

 CeCe by Cynthia Steffe Blouse / Banana Republic Factory Skirt / Madewell Ava Slingback Flat

I’m a sucker for a dramatic sleeve and this one had me at hello. With its sweet, light blue pattern and pintuck detail, it’s a nice daytime option for either work or play. As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to contrast the voluminous sleeves with a more fitted silhouette like this BR Factory skirt. I love playing with proportions. The cherry on top of this outfit is really this pair of Madewell slingback flats. Aren’t they fun?

If you love the blouse, you maybe be able to find it at TJ Maxx. I got mine there for $24. If you can’t find it there, it’s also available via Nordstrom Rack at the link above for less than $35.
