fall fashion...seasonal transitions

 the leaves started changing and the temperatures are a little cooler, but it has still been fairly warm here until yesterday. fall all of a sudden hit yesterday. i'm pretty sure i'm in the minority, but fall isn't my favorite season. fall in Utah is really short, and it just means winter is coming. i really hate winter so i tend to waste fall dreading winter. even though fall isn't my fave, i do love pulling out scarves and cardigans.
today i'm kicking off the we do: fall fashion series, 
depending on where you live dressing for fall can be a little tricky. fall weather in utah is definitely  a little tricky. saturday it was nearly 80 degrees, and yesterday i think the high was around 50 degrees. the best way to handle the crazy variations is layers.

 start with a scarf
 or a lightweight, 3/4 sleeve cardigan
 keep the scarf. switch to a warmer cardigan
 it's crazy how opened toe vs closed toe shoes makes such a difference in hot how or cold i feel
 don't forget to accessorize
 when your feet start getting cold throughout the day, keep your outfit the same and switch to closed toe shoes
by this point, fall in utah is over and it's time to start thinking about winter. i don't wear many big, bulky sweaters. most of my clothes easily transition through the seasons.
when the weather gets really cold and/or snowy, i start wearing boots. 

 eventually i have to start wearing a coat. i put it off as long as possible.

fall is exciting. i'm trying to enjoy it while it lasts and forget about the inevitable winter. we're celebrating fall with a giveaway. enter below.

  2. Last year I started wearing boots in the early fall (just so excited!!!!) and I was so over them by winter, when I really needed them! So this year I'm trying to hold back until the snowy weather strikes. Hopefully we have a few more weeks or a month left!

  3. One of the main reasons I love living in Utah is that we can utilize all these fun layers!! So cute!

  4. I love the transitions in fashion you did! My wardrobe is kinda the same in that aspect. And, I have to keep in mind classroom weather. In the morning, it's colder and it's warmer in the afternoon, no matter what the weather is outside. So, if I want to be warm in the morning, I try to wear a cardigan or jacket and something modest underneath that I can take off!

  5. Cute! And I TOTALLY hear you - winter in Chicago last year was so brutal that the thought of snow and ice makes me want to cry. SO NOT READY FOR IT!
