Last week, when we were in Orange County, we had a small taste of fall. Between the hot and humid weather caused by the remnants of a hurricane, there was a crazy, tropical storm which dumped rain and dark skies on the southland. In the midst of this torrential downpour, there was a small window of cool weather before the storm hit; this is when I reached for a summer into fall outfit.
I always think of August as a transitional month between summer and fall. Perhaps it is because when I was a child, we started school the day after Labor Day; and that meant the fall season had begun. Nowadays, kids start school in the middle of August, so the transition to fall has become blurry for me; making me wonder exactly when to start my wardrobe transition! Although we are still in July, the storm, despite the fact that it was hot and humid, made me think of transitioning from summer into fall; at least for a tiny moment in time 😉
Since the 70’s are an important decade of influence for the fall season, along with some 80’s and 90’s influences, I have become obsessed with my new flair jeans. I love pairing them with this breezy, cropped blouse from Express which offers a fall color palette, and summer weight. This makes it the perfect blouse for transitioning from summer into fall. It can handle the heat of summer, yet evokes a fall feeling through the pattern and color palette. Love that!
I look forward to wearing this blouse with more than just jeans for the remainder of summer, and in early fall. It looks cute with casual, denim shorts; as well as denim pencil skirts! It also looks amazing with black pants, and black denim. It is just a great, all-around, casual top, which is comfortable and perfect for summer into fall.
