How To Transition To Fall Fashion (Without Melting)

Note: I received the dress below from PinkBlush in exchange for a blog post. All opinions are my own.)


Do you know that pumpkin spice flavors hit Starbucks this weekend?!

I can hardly believe it, but autumn is upon us.  I am not sorry to say goodbye to summer and welcome fall, because it means we are that much closer to meeting our baby girl!  (Plus, I love fall.)

What I am not so excited about going into September is playing the "what should I wear?" game.  I always want to break out the long sleeves and boots this time of year, but the truth is, the technical season of summer doesn't end until September 22nd - and the weather knows it.  It's hard to infuse a fall vibe into your wardrobe without also melting in the heat (especially when you are largely pregnant).



I have developed a few guidelines over the years though to help me walk that tricky summer-weather, early-fall line.

Switch to fall colors.  

For early fall, I look for lighter-weight pieces in fall colors or patterns - then I feel fall-ish without resorting to my sweaters and sacrificing a comfortable body temperature.

Add in a brown leather or suede bag.  

I have summer bags in various colors, but I save the brown leather bags for fall.  It's amazing how just switching the color or fabric of your bag can make an outfit seem more pre-fall appropriate.

Go with the booties.  

Avoid the tall boots until it actually gets cool enough to not melt your feet, and invest in some warmer-weather booties.  I like the ones with cutouts so my feet can still breath when the temperature is summer-like.

Wear summer on top, fall on the bottom (or vice versa).  

I think during these early fall days it's totally appropriate to go with different seasons for each half of your look.  Wear some shorts with a light top and cardigan, or wear something short-sleeved with long pants and boots.  Just make sure the colors are all fall-appropriate to tie it together.

Don't put away the dresses!  

I rely on dresses a lot in the summer heat, and I see no need to change that in the early fall when the weather is still warm.  I just apply tips #1 and #4 to my dresses and go from there.  I'm really liking this new dress from PinkBlush going into this fall!  It's short enough to keep me cool, but the long sleeves with the crochet really give it a fall feeling to me.









Does anyone else have as hard of a time knowing when and how to transition to fall fashion as I do?  What works best for you?
