My Transition Wardrobe From Summer To Fall!

Transitioning from Summer to Fall/Winter can sometimes be difficult so I decided to get a head start on this years transition wardrobe.

 I started pulling some clothes out of my closet to see what I had to work with. 

Working with some of my existing pieces I came up with a color scheme that I am very pleased with for this Fall/Winter season…….

 Of course these colors are added to a base of blacks and whites and some navy pieces as well.

I am a planner as you all know, so of course I pulled my clothes out of my closet, and started playing with my key pieces, and adding shoes, and accessories to the mix.

I set up a simple clothes rack in the playroom and started playing……….

Fall Wardrobe 017 (800x600)

These are some of my main tops. Can you say STRIPES?!!

The pants and skirts, not pictured consist of:

  1. Black wide-legged dress pants
  2. Black tapered ankle pants
  3. Dark washed jeans 
  4. Camel tapered ankle pants
  5. Black pencil skirt
  6. Casual camel skirt


Fall Wardrobe 009 (696x800)
My dresses are a comfy jersey knit that can be worn with a navy, or a bright green sweater if it gets cool. 

Living in California our weather is not that harsh at the beginning of Fall so I can get away with a few light-weight pieces.

I have always been a scarf girl. I wear them around my neck, or around my purse handle. I have for years, and I feel very comfortable in a scarf.

 Plus, I find that a scarf is kind of like a pillow in a room. It can pull together colors, and patterns that might not necessarily work without the addition of the scarf, or pillow.

You can see my tanks on the left, on the right my sweaters that will pull all these pieces together.

I have a wide brown leather woven belt, black patent skinny belt, and a leopard pony hide skinny belt.

These are a close-up of the bracelets I find I wear most often when I am wearing all of the above colors. They have been tried, and true favorites of mine.

As far as shoes go I will be showing you only four pair, trust me I have more, but all of these seem to work nicely with the above wardrobe……

Fall Wardrobe 014 (719x800)
I am showing my most comfortable shoes that still have some cute factor. 

Trust me it is hard to find comfortable, and cute in the same shoe. 

The leopard pony-hide shoes are Taryn Rose ballet flats, and I can not say enough about how comfortable these shoes are.

The mustard driving mocs are also quite comfy by Cole Haan (Nike Air).

The blue, and black patent ballet flat is by Bloch, and it is a shoe I have worn all day shopping!

The upper right shoe is by Sam Edelmann, it is a bit out of the box for me with its studs, and spikes, but I love them and they are also quite comfy.


Fall Wardrobe 001 (800x573)

Not shown are cashmere sweaters in Camel, cobalt, and black.

For cooler weather I have a cute all weather jacket by Betsy Johnson…..

I also have a long camel sweater coat, and a cobalt unstructured blazer……..

Fall Wardrobe 011 (800x600)

So there you have it! My Fall wardrobe. When winter hits here in California I will be wearing more of the cashmere sweaters, and a pair of brown leather ankle boots.

I will be carrying this bag for winter……….

This is a re-issue by Fossil and it is a new addition to my wardrobe. I can’t wait until cooler weather shows up so I can pull this baby out of my closet!!!

Fall is just around the corner, have you started working on your Fall Closet yet?
