Transitional Clothes | What I Wore #ootd

These first few weeks of September, where it's still hot out, are my hardest fashion-wise. I'm ready for Fall. The catalogs and my emails are showing tights, and wool and sweaters and I'm ready. But the weather says shorts and flip flops and I'm over it.

I wrote a post about continuing to wear white even after Labor Day (I think if the weather is warm, it's totally acceptable, you just need to warm it up a bit) I also got some great ready for Fall pieces on a recent shopping trip to Ann Taylor.

For this week's outfit, I'm combining the two, by showing my current favorite look: a lightweight 3/4-length nautical t-shirt and white longer shorts. To make this outfit even more fall-ready, change out the bag and shoes. A great pair of stylish sneakers would look great!

Transitional Outfit - Striped T and White Shorts | Mid-Life Mom Style

Shorts - Lands End (I need to replace these for next summer!)
Shirt - Ann Taylor (current season)
Shoes - Vionic
Bag - Kate Spade

I finished off my look with simple silver jewelry and a bandana-style scarf tied in my hair.

What are your favorite seasonal transition looks?

  1. My favorite transitional piece is short boots or a thin cardi. Being in OK though means it will be several more weeks before I can actually wear either. Boo.
