Fall Wardrobe Transition Tip #1 – Dark Accessories

Tip #1 – To transition summer pieces to fall, pair them with darker accessories.

The look is still summery because of the airy top and bright blue color scheme, but the black accessories (purse, shoes) give an edgier fall feel.  So even if you’re not ready to give up your summer wardrobe (I know I’m not!), you can make you look fall-appropriate with a few darker accessories.  And while black is an easy go-to option, you can also use deep blues, purples, reds, etc. to give more of a fall feel

Blouse:  Babaton ‘Ainsley’ blouse {bought at Aritzia – currently on sale!  I have this same style in beige – they have been making it for a few years now – seen here}
Skirt:  J.Crew Factory pencil skirt in wool {I dropped the hem down to get a little extra length}
Sunglasses:  Armani Exchange
Bracelet:  Cassis {no longer in business…really too bad – they had some beautiful clothes}
Purse:  Erica Anenberg ‘Anaconda’ tote
Shoes:  Sam Edelman Portney <

Today’s thoughts:

1.  Have you heard Lana Del Ray’s ‘Young and Beautiful’ – I am obsessed with the haunting tune.
2.  That being said, my music library needs an update.  Any suggestions?
3.  I have committed to playing in a softball tournament this weekend despite still wearing a finger splint.  Probably not the best decision ever, but realistically I am probably going to require surgery anyways (go figure…), so one last tournament can’t be that bad…hopefully…
