Summer to Fall Transition Pieces

Summer to Fall Transition Pieces
I don't know about y'all, but I love this season of life. I love the way a new school years brings so much excitement and anticipation and it always feels like anything could happen. As our minds turn from summer to fall, I always notice a shift from pastels and seersucker to richer, warmer colors and thicker materials and it makes me SO excited to break out the fall pieces I've been collecting, however, if you live in the South like I do, we've still got a ways to go. I thought I'd share some of the things I've been wearing non-stop or things I have my eye on to help make the switch while still keeping layers light and cool.
I own this pair of Old Navy rockstar jeans, they're a recent purchase, and I just love them. I wore them Friday through Sunday this weekend and had no complaints. They're a mid rise, which is perfect for tucking a bit of shirts into but always for hiding any post-brunch food baby and the wash looks even better in person. They're on sale for $14.99 now (Labor Day) and I'd highly suggest picking up a pair because they are the perfect amount of relaxed and will go with anything, now through winter.
Also a great Old Navy find, this swing dress. Something about navy and white stripes says fall to me and this dress is SO comfortable. I rarely wear dresses casually, but this one has the perfect amount of swing in the bottom so as not to be uncomfortably tight during the day, is a great length with flats, and is super breathable. I've worn it multiple times already with my Jack Rogers but I think it'd look just as cute with a vest (like this navy J.Crew one that I love) and riding boots.
Nude flats are a must for me during fall because as it gets chillier I want to cover up my toes, but I also want to keep my outfits light. I have a pair from Target now, but I'm pinching my pennies for this Kate Middleton endorsed pair.
I don't own this shirt yet, but I saw it on Nordstrom's homepage the other day and it seems like the perfect fall piece. I love that wine color for fall, plus all the other colors it comes in, and the drapeyness screams Louisiana fall because it's still hot on Christmas day most years. I'll update this post if I purchase it, because it seems like a winner. I think it'd also be great for business casual work outfits too!
Also on my wishlist? Rayban Erikas. Myles broke my $12 dupes for these the other day, which I was in love with, so I'm thinking an upgrade might be in order. I promised myself I would never buy expensive sunglasses until I managed to keep a pair intact for 2+ years, so it's right on time.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST, my favorite Nordstrom sale purchase and the thing I'll be wearing all fall long, this green corduroy skirt. I am loving the corduroy/suede trend that's coming back, but nothing I was seeing really caught my eye until this baby. It's A-line, which is my favorite, and it's SO soft and stretchy. I can't wait to pair it with a light white blouse in October, but then a sweater and boots in December. 10/10 recommend.
