There’s so many changes that happen as we transition into the fall
season. I literally feel the warm air shift to the cold, crisp fall air as the
leaves turn bright oranges and reds before falling to the ground. As our days
get shorter and nights begin to get longer, I cling to the September sunshine
and waning summer warmth. I do admit though that I’m also ready to embrace new
layers, warm boots, and lots of coffee. 

As we prepare and go through these transitions, I turn to the comfort
of the basics in my wardrobe. These basic pieces are the stability of the
seasonal changes and are must haves for any wardrobe. What are some of these
basics? Here are an essential three:

The Jean Jacket: I would argue that a jean
jacket can survive any season- summer, fall, winter, and spring (you can layer
it in winter!). I stand behind the idea that a jean jacket is a staple in any
wardrobe – whether age or gender you are, anyone can rock a jean jacket.

Black Skinny Jeans: Black jeans are so
versatile! You can wear them out or dress them up. You can even get away with
them in the office on Casual Friday.

Basic White Tank: A BWT literally screams casual
and easy to wear. It’s just like having a basic white t-shirt, you can
literally pair it with anything, layer it, or just sport it as a standalone

Usually my blog post have a specific theme. I’ve shared how to style a maxi dress and how to style transitional pieces from summer to fall. While sometimes I just want to take it easy and share what I’m wearing lately. This is a post where I just want to show you what I’ve been wearing and styling often. With this look, I’m also sharing with you one of my secrets to shopping & saving

 As we approach the first official day of fall, summer sales are happening everywhere. I. love. sales. In fact, seasonal sales are such an exciting time for me to shop because it’s where I find some of my favorite pieces. A lot of people dismiss the seasonal sales because they’re looking ahead at the new pieces that have hit the floor. But the truth is there a lot of different pieces that you can take with you into the next season. I found this nautical inspired shirt at Target on clearance for seriously $7. You can style a nautical look in summer and in fall (there’ no fashion laws against it!). I love this shirt because I can style it in an everyday look and also in a business casual look. Its easy to style and also easy on my shopping budget.

A couple of items that I’ve seen on clearance racks that can be worn both for summer and fall at Target, Nordstrom Rack, etc include:

  • Oversized cardigans 
  • Short sleeve or sleeveless blouses – pair an oversized cardigan with it!
  • Midi/Maxi Dresses – I’d recommend pairing longer dresses with booties and layering them with bomber jackets.

So next time you’re at the mall, don’t dismiss that sales rack. Its worth a browse especially if you find something you can take into the next season!
