Guest Post: Transitioning Your Wardrobe From Summer To Fall


Hi Everyone! Today's OOTD is a guest post by the lovely Mallory Brown from chromobeauty.blogspot.com. Enjoy! :)


I don't know about you, but my year has gone by FAST, and I'm currently still in mourning my summer that disappeared in the blink of an eye! It feels like I just broke out my summer clothes last week! Today's outfit is a perfect transition outfit from summer to fall because it still keeps some of the bold colors from the summer months, but it gets you ready to mix things up for fall with some neutrals.



For this look, I began with a neutral, black. I kept it flowing throughout my look with the little black pocket on the top and black bracelet from 23 Jewellery that I got a few days ago and have been wearing constantly ever since! Since I'm still in the transition phase going from summer to fall, I added little pops of colors throughout the look to keep a small element of summer style.


Here in Alabama, the weather is still going from hot to cold on a daily basis, so I chose to stick with short sleeves for this look to accommodate the warm weather that was sure to follow the morning chill! This is a really bright, loose turquoise top from Rue 21 that I decided on because I was in the mood for something bold, and it stood out really well against my black jeans! I also love the studs along the pocket that add a cute, edgy twist.


My other splash of color to this outfit were my colorful wedges from Maurices! I snagged these little beauties a few weeks ago on sale at only fifteen dollars! These wedges really add to the summery feel of the look while keeping things safe for the cool weather by pairing them with my dark skinny jeans. These shoes are also really good for when you're in a place where you're going to be walking a lot but still want to wear heels! Since these are flat wedges, I was able to wear them to school without having any problem navigating the overcrowded hallways and numerous staircases.



That concludes my fall transition! I hope you liked these tips for bringing summer and fall together as we begin this new season, and have a fantastic fall!
