This summer has been so busy, it has been hard to find a day to meet up with my friend Dawn from Fashion Should Be Fun! We finally found a break in both our schedules and were able to meet up for coffee, a walk, and catching up!

Although it is still technically summer, I decided to create an outfit that worked for summer yet offered some fall vibes. Pairing this neutral tee with my neutral joggers, handbag, and sneakers, helped create a fall vibe. Hopefully it encourages cooler temperatures and more pumpkin spice to hit store shelves! I am still waiting for the cereal. Yum!

Dawn looked fabulous too with on trend, wide leg jeans, and duster. Too bad we didn’t get a picture together! That’s a blogger fail on our part! At least we had fun and enjoyed snacks from Cocola at Santana Row.

These sneakers are super fun and provide the arch support I need for walking around. I love how they are a fall neutral hue too! The green-khaki sneakers paired with my chocolate brown handbag is a great pairing as we head into fall. I look forward to wearing them together as we move into the cooler season!

August is always a tough time when it comes to integrating fashion into my personal style. I want to wear all the fabulous things coming out for fall, but it is still an oven outside. Thankfully we had a little bit of fog the other day, so it was warm without being totally hot. Loved it!

When there is just a bit of fog, I try to wear just a bit of fall. So, I took this opportunity to pull out my new fall boots and I paired them with this puff sleeve tee I have been loving all summer long; and which I plan to wear throughout the fall season too. I also paired them with my trusty, light wash skinny jeans so I didn’t look too fall-ish.

In addition to a summer into fall outfit, I paired my look with my new shoulder bag. You can see my review here. It was really easy to use and comfortable on my shoulder. I am in love with this bag!

Can you believe we are in August?!?! I cannot believe how fast this summer has gone! While it is still technically summer, vacation is almost over. This means the kids are about to go back to school! Ah! I feel like I blinked, and it is over!

Despite the ninety-degree temperatures outside, stores are starting to stock cozy sweaters, pants, and handbags in fall hues. Are you ready for fall? I sure am! I would love some foggy mornings and cooler days. Right now, the only way to feel a little bit of fall is to snap up a new handbag for the autumn season.

Remember when I said moon shaped bags were up and coming? Well, they are exploding this fall season. Don’t worry, if the moon shape isn’t your thing, bucket bags, hobo bags, shoulder bags, and top handle bags are still hotter than hot for the fall season. But, if you would like to rock the moon bag trend, there is a fabulous new one under $500 I am excited about! See that ivory moon bag above? I love it! Stay tuned for an upcoming review. . .

If you are looking for some great pieces you can wear now and well into the fall season, these joggers are perfect for flowing from season to season. In addition, these high top sneakers are great to wear now and into the fall season.

Do you like fleeting trends? There are two right now. One is “Barbiecore” which is basically wearing bright pink, and also “Coastal Grandmother” which is wearing linens or flowing casual looks that would be perfect for a foggy day at the beach. I’m not too into that last one. Those types of outfits swallow me whole as someone who is 5’4″ and needs to shorten most pants. I feel like that trend works better on tall people, but that’s just my opinion.
