Making the Transition

So, it's the day after a long holiday weekend. The weekend that officially transitions us to fall. Technically, the first day of fall isn't until September 22, but in the fashion world it appears that fall truly begins at the end of Labor Day weekend. And with that, I'm starting to make the transition to fall myself! I've been thinking a lot about what to add to the closet that's new and fresh without packing it full of trends and "just because" items. And, I've really started thinking about editing the existing contents. (Read, major half yearly closet cleanout!)
So, what I'm thinking of adding to the closet? Well let me tell ya.
I wish I could show you the actual shoe, but alas it is sold out online! Good for me, as I own them, but bad for you because you can't order them. However, call your local Ann Taylor and ask if they carry them in the store. I love a boot as much as anyone, but it's a little early to wear boots. So, I opt for peep-toe versions! The pump is the design of the bootie that looks similar to the one on the right.
I have been scouring the internet for the perfect pair of faux leather shorts and I finally found them! These Bermuda shorts from Zara are the furthest thing from Bermuda! They are a great length, great fit and the perfect transition piece that will look awesome with tights later in the fall!
This rich navy top from Ann Taylor is going to look awesome with jeans and a tough pump, but even better with my navy lace crops! I love the bow-tie neck and flutter cap sleeves.
You know how I feel about boyfriend jeans. I love them! And, I found the perfect pair from LOFT. I've been shopping for a gray jean since last season but never found a pair that fit like I wanted. I had a great pair pre-baby, but those will never fit again. Then I had the best maternity pair, but again, those will never fit again. I am loving this pair and can't wait to wear them soon!
And lastly, these amazing wide leg pants from Anthropologie! They were onsale but I truly believe they are a perfect transition piece. Yes, they have a tiny white print but that will be lost with how I style them. Perfect with my moto jacket, a black t-neck, baggy sweater and any form of heeled shoe. I am so excited about them!

So there's a little preview into my pre-fall wardrobe. What are you looking forward to wearing the most? Is it something that already exists in your wardrobe or something you've had your eye on? Let's chat!
