Fashion, Outfit of the Day

What is “transitional fashion?”

Everybody says it, but what does “transitional fashion” really mean? It’s a new season, get new clothes? I used to conform to those “rules” with regards to fashion. You know, the no white after Labor Day stuff. Well as I grow older (and perhaps wiser) I follow no one else’s rules but my own. I wear white whenever I feel like it, and sometimes even superwoman-inspired capes! But as we settle in to the fall season, one topic I see bloggers cover over and over is transitional fashion. What should one wear while it feels like summer but we’re midway through September. Allow me to explain how I address this nuance.



It’s easy to pack your wardrobe with the colors most commonly associated with fall. The greens, yellows, and brows. But this presents a problem if you are a lover of color, like myself. I wear a lot of vibrant hues and a lot of pink – regardless of the time of year. Rather than completely changing your color palette, consider switching up your accessories. Instead of straw, wear velvet. Or, swap the sandals altogether for a pair of booties (as seen here). It is never acceptable to sacrifice your personal style to conform to a set of rules you think you are supposed to follow. Tweaks like this make it easier to wear whatever you please 365 days a year.



This dress is not a traditional fall garment but it works in California weather! I LOVE the bright hues and statement sleeves – surprise, surprise! The mini length is great for booties and you could drape a jean jacket over your shoulders for added warmth. But if the temperature is already dropping where you live, don’t fret because there is a top available in this glorious print too. And it features an off-the-shoulder neckline. Is there anything better?! Now i just have to decide, is two garments in the same print excessive?!
