Summer To Fall Transition Tips + Outfit Ideas

Summer is officially winding down and I cannot say I’m too disappointed about it. September has got to be one of my favorite months to dress for. Frankly, I am perfectly aware that most people hate those awkward weeks where the mornings are cooler and then it gets warmer throughout the day to the point where you’re always second guessing what to wear in the morning and I completely agree, except for the Summer to Fall transition period that has just arrived.
