The other day, I walked outside and felt a brisk breeze while Chase rushed to pee on the nearest bush. Could it be…? Is that a FALL BREEZE COMING MY WAY??? Okay, maybe I’m getting a little too excited because fall is my absolute favorite season (I loved fall before it was basic). BUT, we are now in that awkward transitional August period where we feel fall coming, and it feels like fall in the morning, but feels like 100 degrees in the afternoon. We want to pull our fall wardrobes out (especially everyone going back to school) but, it’s a little premature unless we want to sweat a lot. Which, sometimes, the outfit is too good, you just gotta sweat.
OR, you can rock some cute transitional outfits, that bring out your fall style, but allow you to adjust when you start breathin a little heavy and doing the “pit checks.”
Chambray can be worn a million different ways during this transitional period, and during fall. So, it’s definitely a wardrobe staple if you don’t have a chambray top yet. Here’s just one (of many!!!) looks I wanted to share that’s perfect for this awkward weather time…
I’m wearing simple, light, striped tank top shift dress I scored at TJ Maxx for, like, $10, with my chambray button-up as a light “jacket.” (This dress did not come tied, I did it myself – that’s what the kids are doing these days).
Paired with a cute, simple pair of light-colored sneaks and a light-toned tote, the summer vibe is still there, BUT there’s definitely a hint of fall going on…
(This is what I look like all the time in real life^^^ – RBF while sipping iced coffee).
The best part of this outfit is, when it gets too hot, just whip off the chambray and tie it around your hips!
