Wrapping Up Summer - Favorite End of Summer Style

Welcome back to another weekly fashion post. In this post, I share what I'm wearing right now along with some helpful ideas and inspiration for shopping your own closet and looking at your clothing in a new and stylish light. This week, I'm sharing a little end of summer style post. Even though there are probably about 8 more weeks of warm weather, in my mind we are wrapping up summer.

Summer vacation is ending, school is starting, and that means an onslaught of fall clothes in the stores an in your mailbox. A cool crisp morning has me wanting to reach for boots, even though it will be 85 degrees by noon. I find this season tough to deal with. White jeans? How much longer? Flip flops into October?

On a recent family trip to Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ, I wore a simple eyelet t-shirt, over a basic tank with my favorite Ann Taylor Skinny Jeans. A pair of comfortable walking shoes finished my outfit.

As Summer Turns to Fall, I'm Pairing a White Eyelet T with Skinny Jeans
Shirt - Ann Taylor (this season)
Tank - Chico's - a staple in their line
Jeans - Ann Taylor Modern Skinny Ankle Jeans
Shoes - Vionic
Bracelets - Alex and Ani and Tiffany
Necklace - Tiffany
This is the time of year that I start to move away from some of my blatant summer pieces a little. My white shorts are ok, but paired with a darker top maybe. Shoes? That's a little more complicated. Ankle Jeans are a great bet, and I'm turning to them more and more on days that stay around 80 degrees or less.

Another look I like is  pairing a long-sleeve T with shorts, like this one from the end of last summer. The classic styling is still in style, and stripes are big right now.

  1. Can summer not be over? I'm not ready to put up my flip flops or deal with cold weather.

  2. I am in no hurry for summer to be over! I do love wearing fall clothes, though. I love your striped tee and shorts! Great transitional look. I am also a fan of long sleeve tees and shorts. :)
