Today is my first time to contribute to The Blended Blog. It’s a new blog collaboration with a group of ladies that I met through several style challenges. We have been taking turns sharing ways to transition summer pieces into Fall.
If you follow me then you know I live in Texas and am accustomed to long hot summers. Even though summer is exiting in many parts of the country and Canada, it still continues to hold on a bit here in the South. This means we will continue to wear shorts for a little longer. I don’t mind sporting shorts when the temps drop a bit because it’s not my legs that typically get cold it’s my shoulders and arms. This means I will most likely be wearing shorts for a little longer but will change from tanks and sleeveless tops to something a little more covered.
Since we (the contributors) of The Blended Blog are featuring transition looks through our blog hop, I came up with a couple of looks that I really love featuring shorts for fall. I was just a little excited when my hubby liked these looks too. Again, I don’t specifically dress for him but I enjoy his input and he knows what I like, what I’ll wear and if I actually like it on me. I so appreciate his input. Can you relate to that issue?
The first look is really comfy and cozy. When fall rolls around we all have to break the plaid don’t we? This particular plaid is a little muted but I think the soft colors add a touch of femininity to this look. The top pieces can easily be worn with a variety of bottoms other than the shorts. I anticipate changing out the shorts for skinny jeans in the coming weeks.
The second look is another one that is comfy and will transition super easy by changing out the shorts for a different bottom. For this look, I think I would choose colored bottoms in burgundy, black or purple which will work well with this camo jacket. I might even kick it up a notch and wear a pencil skirt with heels!
Our transitioning blog hop doesn’t end today. Next week we have another installment with Lana who blogs at Two Teens and Their Mama, Deena who blogs at Shoes to Shiraz and Casey who blogs at A Little Bit of Cheer. I hope you’ll join them next week for their original style and some great ideas to transition into fall with style.
