Where has the Summer Gone?

Just add some cute boots and a jacket for those colder days

I know a lot of you are thinking that the summer just flew by. The vacations are over and all the kids will be back in school or off to college. While this is true I can’t help but think that every time I pick up a fashion magazine all the articles talk about is what is hot for fall. How can we think about fall fashions when we haven’t had a decent stretch of hot weather in a month?


Change your footwear it's easy
I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and I woke up to overcast skies and drizzle. It’s been like this all week. This is what I consider typical weather for our area. We don’t get hot days until we’ve spent money on new clothes for fall and the kids are back in school. Some of the hottest days in my memory have been around the end of August and through September. So while the weather is fall like it’s probably a good idea to think of transitional outfits.


Add a sweater over a sleeveless blouse to keep warm
Since the weather is so unstable it’s probably a good idea to dress in layers. I’m sure we all have sundresses and tops that scream summer but just aren’t practical when it’s cloudy and drizzling. One of the easiest ways to transition an outfit is to change your footwear. Go from flats or sandals to boots. Add a long sleeved top and you’re ready. Another easy fix is to add a jacket or even a scarf. You can take it off as the day warms up.


Maybe just add some fall colors
Sundresses look cute with sandals and a sweater but all you have to do is button up the sweater, add a belt and some cute boots and you’re ready for fall or in my case, a drizzly summer day. Another way to transition an outfit is to add fall colors, gold, yellow, rust or orange. It’s pretty cold today so I’m going to be taking my own advice and dressing in layers and probably adding a scarf. It really makes me wonder where my summer has gone, or at least the summer weather.
For the office think animal print and a navy bag
