Is it fall yet? Everywhere I go I see cute little jack-o-lanterns, pumpkin spice lattes, and cozy sweaters that make me wish for chilly weather. But when I open my front door—bam—it’s 75 degrees outside. I love living in San Diego with its year-round blue skies and warm, sunny beaches, but after a long, hot summer I’m ready for PSL season to hit. Unfortunately, the calendar says we still have two more weeks of summer (technically). That’s okay because I have my sweaters, boots, and the rest of my fall style on standby. But in the meantime, I can still enjoy the casual fun of a tee and shorts. And with a little creative color and accessories, I can almost make it feel like fall.
For something more seasonally appropriate as we transition into autumn, I love wearing summer staples in darker colors and textures. Like a pair of dark jean shorts, with a tee that has a cute leopard print. Add to that a wide-brim hat and some chunky boots and it feels a little more like fall style in no time. I might not head to the beach in my darker summer look, but I could definitely head to Michaels to pick up some craft supplies for the kids! It’s cute, it’s light, and more importantly, I can sip on my pumpkin spice latte without feeling too out of place!
