5 Tips to Transition into Fall

Hey, Loves!

I'm officially over the summer attire and so ready to start pulling out all the fun fall pieces. In today's post, I want to let you in on 5 ways to start rocking fall fashion -- even when it's still 80 degrees outside. Let's get into it!

cami: Abercrombie | shorts: American Eagle | shoes: Nordstrom | cardigan: Forever 21 | bag: Tory Burch

sweater: Express | skirt: American Eagle | shoes: Steve Madden | belt: Amazon | bag: Shop J & G

1. Start layering, girl.

It's so easy! Take pieces you already have in your closet and start pairing them together. Have a favorite cami? Throw a lightweight oversized cardigan over it and you've got yourself a fun transitional outfit!

2. Fall colors > summer colors

Rather than reaching out for the pastels and brights, start breaking out that maroon or burnt orange sweater you've been dying to wear. My favorite piece this fall will definitely be this black lace cami. I've been wearing it non-stop and it is at a great price point.

3. Boots are made for walking... wear them!

You definitely don't have to wear your boots only when it starts to get cold. Don't be afraid to rock those boots in the back of your closet with some cut off shorts or your favorite mini skirt. If you're a shorty like myself, wearing boots and booties will give the illusion that you have legs for days. I'm always down for that!

4. Leopard print is back, and here to stay.

Yup, leopard print is everywhere this fall! I've seen in on cardigans, shoes, belts, EVERYWHERE! I hope you didn't throw out your cheetah girl days accessories, because now's the time to re-use them.

5. Sweater + shorts = YES!

It is totally not a #faSHUN to wear sweaters and shorts/skirts in the same outfit. Use it to your advantage! It's a great way to mix and max prints and textures, and I find it to slim down the bottom portion of the body and helps you look leaner and taller. That's a major yes in my book!

A HUGE shoutout to Erick for allowing me to model for him! Make sure to check out his instagram here and his wife's blog here! They were the sweetest couple and had the funniest little boys. Can we talk about family goals?!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog posts, and I hope that this helped you get some tips to get ready for fall in Texas. Please let me know in the comments below what fall is like where you live and your go-to fall outfit!

XOXO,
