Isn’t there something so magical about morning light filtering through the trees? While our fall colors haven’t exactly been brilliant so far, I’ve enjoyed the crisp cool mornings that we’ve been enjoying lately. It also means that I’ve been wearing more of my transitional pieces both into the office and during our brief outings on Saturdays.
Having transitional pieces in your wardrobe is something that I find to be essential when the season change from spring to summer and summer to fall. Layers that either can be removed or added depending on what the temperatures happen to be on any given day. We’ve been known to have a balmy Thanksgiving or Christmas Day more than once.
One thing I noticed when I was switching out my wardrobe from spring/summer to fall/winter was that most of my transitional pieces for fall feature florals on black or navy backgrounds. I truly do love a good floral pattern regardless of time of year, and dark florals are ideal for the fall season and it’s nice to add a layer in a warm (or jewel tone) to add a nice pop of color to your overall look.
On the day we shot the photos for this piece it was 40 degrees, so definitely on the chilly side, but the added layer helped keep the chill off, and you could also pair the booties with a tights in a complimenting color. I’ve had these particular booties for several seasons now, and they’ve already been my go-to on more than once occasion this fall.
My floral is dress is the Greer Tiered Ruffle Mesh Dress by Fortune + Ivy that I recently picked up from Stitchfix (where I’ve been finding quite a few pieces this season) and I’ve added a layer and pop of color with a Jamelya Back Detail Cardigan by Pinque (also via Stitchfix) in Mustard. You can shop similar styles via the Shop the Post links below, or check out Thread Up for Fortune + Ivy pre-loved pieces as well and I’ve found the cutest high-low maxi by Fortune + Ivy via Belk.
