Transitioning to Fall...

The weather in Upstate NY has been a little cooler this past week, which has been perfect for breaking out some of my new fall pieces! This is the time of year that I start to mix them in with my summer favorites, creating outfits that help transition my closet from summer to fall. 

This is my favorite outfit from the past week.... 

sweater - Gap // shorts - Gap // bracelets - Alex & Ani
(apologies for even worse than normal photography, but I was at my parents' house!) 

I wore the outfit to a very low key rehearsal dinner on Friday night. It was a rainy day, only in the low 70's, so I opted to wear shorts and a sweater. I am head over heels in love with the slouchy, loose knit sweater & I think I'm going to order it in another color because I'm just that obsessed with it! (No surprise considering my love for slouchy tees this summer...) Since the sweater is so neutral, I was able to pair it with my favorite patterned shorts! I'm hoping I can wear it at least one more time before I have to pack away my shorts... 

This morning I woke up to what felt like fall, only a high of 60 degrees. I got dressed & am wearing my favorite mustard blouse from Banana Republic & Matchstick Jeans from J.Crew. It is August though, so I threw on my flip flops - it's just too soon for boots! 
again, another horrible photo but we were running really late this morning!

And because the weather is putting me in the mood for this... 

hot chocolate... no on the vacation mode detox plan

  1. I could really use one more good heat wave before the kids go back to school ... but it looks like their marching band camp next week will be pretty mild.

    This morning it was 54 with a chill breeze for my run - absolutely gorgeous running weather, my hands were even a bit chilly by the end! I could take mornings like that *forever*!

    Enjoy your vacation!
