Making My Summer Clothes Work For Fall

It’s the season of pumpkin spice, changing leaves, and obnoxiously layering your clothes to keep up with the unpredictable weather.

For some (or a lot of us) it probably still feels like summer at the start of fall and you have to switch up your outfit plans. How can you transition into fall if your fall stuff is still too heavy? Here’s how I made my summer clothes work for me!

I’m not yet ready to commit myself to layers so I dug through my closet and pulled out pieces that have an autumn vibe. To me that basically means anything that looks like it would belong to a summer goth. Maybe that will be next aesthetic since I found an alarmingly large number of it in my closet?

My friend-in-thrifting Samantha bought this beautiful midi skirt for me and I just knew in the back of my mind that I would be wearing it for this in-between weather. Boy, was I right!

And because one pattern is never good enough for me, I added this striped tank top for good measure.

My accessories all have a gold color story including my lion head belt! Which, after wearing for the entire day, I realized I wore it upside down. How does that even happen? That poor lion must have felt awful before I finally realized my mistake.

I managed to embody fall without having to wear unnecessary layers to stay cool in our warm frontront.

But rest assured when fall weather does show up, I’ll be ready after some major thrifting I did this past weekend while on vacation. I’ve got a big clothing thrift haul coming to my YouTube channel this Friday that you’re not going to want to miss!

  • I see the fall wardrobe like that funny meme that went around about bikini bodies. You know, “want a bikini body? Put on a bikini. Done”? Well, how about “want a fall wardrobe? keep wearing the clothes you’ve been wearing all year.” BOOM! 😉

    • Hahaha what a great comparison. I love it!!

  • Love the outfit. Stripes and florals will always be one of my favorite combinations. And dark florals are perfect for transitioning!

    And it’s so strange seeing fall frenzy in the blogosphere, since I’m still wearing crop tops and shorts where I live!

    • Hang on to those crop tops as long as you can! Y’know how winter is (if you live somewhere cold) it feels like it lasts forever so you’ll have plenty of time to layer up your clothes.

    I think I have the most fun coming up with outfits for transitional months. It’s like a dare and it forces us to look at our closets in a new way.

    Beautiful mix in prints. Really love that skirt! <3
