3 Looks to Take You From Summer to Fall, In Style

I walked outside my apartment this week and was surprised to find a lovely 60 degrees…meaning Fall is actually around the corner now! Aside from the fact that my birthday month lands in September, what I love about this time of year is the transition to this special season. Fall has a sense of making people feel so much joy with refreshing weather, holidays on the horizon and a cozier wardrobe change.

And on that note, I put together some looks featuring pieces I got from XOXO — a true day to evening lifestyle brand that is sexy and confident! I actually have been shopping XOXO at major retailers ever since I could remember. I love that they have affordable price points for quality clothing that’s perfect for today’s trends, and years down the road when they come back in style!

The trick to transitional looks is working around one statement piece from the next season and mixing it with the styles of this one.

Let’s get started!

#1: Booties

One of the most exciting parts of Fall is breaking out your favorite pair of boots. Tall, short, heeled, flat, patterns or color blocked, there’s endless possibilities of how to decorate your feet while being cozy in colder weather. I paired heeled booties from XOXO with one of my favorite graphic tees of this summer. Wearing darker jeans with the brown booties added some nice contrast, too!

#2: Printed Joggers

Animal print (of all kinds) is here to stay and I am pumped! Something you’ll find me in all season is a pair of loose pants or joggers. They’re comfortable, easy to slip on and provide warm where you need it. I am pairing this leopard jogger with one of my favorite blouses of summer. Because the blouse is black, it pairs well with the print and season’s colors but you get to keep the ruffles trend going. PS: I’ve worn these joggers about once a week since I got them - they fit SO well I even got them in another print!

#3: Dark Denim

They say a light denim jacket is the “springtime uniform,” well that means dark denim is Fall’s. I got a black denim set by XOXO that I am loving, paired with some sneakers and a fun sequins tank. This denim fabric is quite flexible, which I love. And this look is great if you live in a climate that maybe doesn’t get as cold so you at least have an option to remove the jacket when you need. FACT: this tank is about 8 years old so I am glad we brought sparkle back this year!

All that in mind, you know I always have to remind you to not just buy pieces for “right now,” grab some that will last seasons to come to practice more sustainable style. All of these, and so many more by the brand, do just that and I’m really excited to work with them on this piece! You can find places to shop XOXO in the link here.
