Transitioning your Summer Gear: How to Layer for Fall
The thought of Summer 2014 actually coming to a close is making me a little crazy simply because I feel like it just started! where in the world did the time go?....oh! off to the beach along with everyone else! right.
Well, if you're anything like me and constantly breaking the "no white after labor day" rule willingly, then let's transition together. I hate rules, and style trends are no different---if I feel like wearing white in October, then I will Ms. fashion editor. Whatcha Gonna Do?! Feature me?!
If you aren't ready to put away that Maxi dress or fold away those cut-off denim shorts; no worries, paring your favorite summer looks with traditional fall pieces, will not only give you an edgy ensemble but will add a bit of sunshine to the crisp air, approaching.
