August is always a limbo month between summer and fall. While the weather remains hot, the clothing on store shelves suggests a cool climate where seeking cozy fabrics and textures is a must. So, while summer attire begins to look “oh so last season,” fall attire, which is fresh and inviting, is simply not practical in hot August weather!
Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, we enjoy an “Indian Summer” which is defined as summer weather that continues into mid-fall; usually the middle of October. So, when I shop for fall clothing, I always look for transitional pieces since our climate is anything but fall-like!
Calypso St. Barth has a fabulous fall 2014 collection which includes so many pieces perfect for transitioning from hot summer weather to more moderate, or cool autumn temperatures. In addition, many of the pieces are tailored for warmer climates which allows the clothing to look like fall, yet offer the comfort and coolness of summer attire. Love that!
I found this fabulous short sleeve sweater at Calypso St. Barth at the Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto during a blogger brunch held at the shop. The sweater is perfect for transitioning into the fall season here in the San Francisco Bay Area; as well as in many other climate’s! Since we have fog in the morning, allowing temperatures to hover around 60 degrees until the sun shines through, a short sleeve sweater, which can easily be taken off when the fog burns off, is ideal. I love this sweater since it keeps me warm while the fog is in, and then is easy to remove when the fog burns off. Love that!
