Summer Fades to Fall – Transitioning Your Wardrobe

summer fades to fall

transitioning your wardrobe

Here in New England, we are in that weird time of year where we will have a super hot 80-degree day, and the next is 55 and cold. Even on those hot days, the mornings are chilly and it is hard to dress appropriately. I also don’t like to spend a ton of money on my wardrobe. I mean, of course I like to shop, but due to the whole budget thing (see husband, I do try and be frugal!), I also try and maximize what I already have. Going from summer to fall makes it easy to borrow clothes from one season to the next!

how to do double duty

When transitioning into the next season, make your clothes do double duty! A simple way I make my clothes work for me is by layering on top of my summer tops. By adding the extra layer, it helps ward off the chills on those cool mornings. And then I have a layer I can remove in the afternoon (because chasing little kids around= immediately overheating). This basic tank is my go-to in the summer, and I don’t think I will stop wearing it any time soon! Just switch out your shorts for some jeans, add some cute booties and a statement necklace and you have a simple yet stylish outfit.

I need to mention these jeans specifically too- they are all I’ve worn lately! They are so comfortable and fit great. They look more expensive than they really are. Go try them on; you’ll thank me! I have them in the distressed version too. (Don’t forget to scroll to the bottom for direct links to these items or similar ones!).

 

If you ever wonder who I am laughing at in my pictures, usually it is my friend Jenn at From the Family with Love. I am not totally comfortable being in front of the camera, and she helps me not take myself too seriously  😉 Here she is!

Gorgeous, isn’t she?

Monochromatic Boys Room

One of the first projects we did when we moved in four months ago  (how has it been four months already?!) was paint and decorate the kids’ rooms. They had been in a state of flux between selling our home (9 months) and living at my parents’ home (4 months). We wanted them to get settled as quickly as possible to help them feel stable. So while they aren’t “complete,” we made significant progress right away. There are quite a few things we still want to add/change, but here’s our progress so far!

When I asked Levi how he wanted to decorate his room, his response was orange. (And if you know him, that’s usually his response for everything. He’s obsessed!). I couldn’t stomach a bright bedroom, so we compromised with a monochromatic room and will add pops of orange. I just haven’t gotten that far yet…
