Change Your Summer Outfits to Fall Outfits

Hey everyone! I’m back to share a new fashion post with you guys! It’s hard to believe that summer is almost over, especially because we’ve had a really mild summer and most of it hasn’t even felt like summer, but the kids are all heading back to school in less than 2 weeks! (School starts August 4th here.) And the stores are PACKED with people buying school supplies. It’s more than a little bit insane.

So, that means that its time to start thinking about your fall wardrobe. I know, I know. I’m heart broken that the time for tanks and shorts is almost over too.

But, we can still use those items for the winter! I’m one of those people that likes to wear my summer staples all year round. So I put together three summer to fall outfits that you can mix and match to use your summer items in the winter!

summertofalloutfits

 

In outfit number one, I took one of my staple summer outfits: a crop top and high waisted jean shorts and exchanged the shorts for some skinny jeans, the sandals for some combat boots and threw on an awesome moto jacket to make this outfit perfect for fall! I hate being overly warm in the fall so wearing a tank or muscle tee with a jacket makes it perfect for the mild weather.

Outfit number two gets out of my comfort zone because I literally took the entire summer outfit of a tank and shorts and added tights under the shorts. I have not actually tried this look, but I love it when I see it on other people so I really want to try it this year. I added some ankle boots for the shoes and a loose white sweater to make it weather appropriate!

Outfit number three is a dressier option. I love these skater skirts or circle skirts. I think they are so classic and fun and wearing crop tops is a perfect pair with them! To make it more fall appropriate I added tights under the skirt and a blazer and exchanged the sandals for flats. Now it’s perfect for a date night in the fall!

You can do this with so many outfits so get in your closet and get creative! It’s super easy and it saves you money because you aren’t buying for each season!

That’s all I’ve got for you guys today, but be sure to head over to my blog because I have a ton of fashion DIYs planned and I hope you’ll stop by!

BA Star Tropical Palette Swatches

BA Star Palette Featured

I'm usually a very boring person when it comes to eye shadow and makeup in general. My eye shadow collection is full of neutrals and the Naked3 palette was made for me. From time to time though palettes like the Urban Decay Electric come out and make me want to leap out of my comfort zone and rock the brights but I usually pass because who wants to spend all of that money knowing that it won't be an everyday thing? Not this girl. When I saw this 'Tropical Palette' from BA Star I did a double … [Continue reading...]

20 Second Messy Bun | Guest Post by Three in Three

Hello again everyone! Are you ready for some more hair fun? The look of the summer is the bun, in all the many ways, shapes and forms it comes in.

Thank you Regency Beauty for sponsoring today's story and helping me #ShareBeauty, as always all opinions are my own. I realized last night that I have been a lover of all things beauty for quite sometime, and at the risk of dating myself here... When asked when I really got into beauty, what lit the fire? It was this episode of Dawson's Creek. It made me want to find and try whatever Urban Decay was. I had the biggest girl crush on Ms. Jennifer Lindley and if she was using it, I wanted it. … [Continue reading...]

Find the right sunless tanners for your skin tone can be a daunting task but there are tips and tricks that will help you!

I can pretty much grab anything self tanner wise and be good to go based on years of application trials and … [Continue reading...]
