How do you shop when you're thinking about fall yet it still feels like summer? Personally, I have a hard time buying "summer staples" when we're almost halfway through September yet I'm still not quite ready to give up warm weather styles just yet. We'll be getting 100-degree weather for another month here, so finding transitional pieces is a must. 

One of my favorite ways to shop (and dress) during these in-between days is by focusing on pieces I can wear with shorts and skirts now or denim and booties into fall. Adding sleeves to my favorite off-the-shoulder styles has been one easy way to do that. I love this Sun & Shadow top from Nordstrom and the bell sleeves are right on trend. The slightly warmer pink tone is also an easy way to take your summer pinks like coral into fall. I would size down in this one—I'm wearing the xxs. 

If you don't have a denim skirt by now—you need one! Seriously. When they came back in style, it brought me back to my high school years wearing them with Uggs (anyone else?), yet I'm really loving how easily they make an outfit and how well they help bridge that transition. When it gets just a little cooler, I'll be wearing mine with cozy sweaters and booties. 

I've also been switching out my summer sandals for close-toed styles. Pairing shorts and tees with sneakers, slides and loafers is such an easy way to give your summer look a fall spin. These Adidas sneakers have been on repeat and I love how they go with everything plus give your outfit a casual-cool kick—size down in these. 

Topping any look with a bag in a rich tone like cognac is also one of my go-to's no matter the season but especially into fall. I love, love this Madewell transport crossbody and it's another one of those goes-with-everything styles.

How many of you are dress and heel wearers? I am definitely NOT a heel wearer and jeans are a daily staple for me, so anytime I can find a dress I can wear with sneakers, sandals, flats—I'm all about it. This Topshop striped shift dress from Nordstrom is just that and the style is made for dressing down. Things I look for in styles that are easy to dress down? Cotton, stripes, shift/shirt dress silhouettes and t-shirt styles. Basically—styles in the casual dress section at Nordstrom are my jam.

I haven't had a pair of Adidas sneakers since middle school (you just weren't one of the cool kids if you didn't have those white kicks with three stripes) and I'm so glad I finally decided to relive my early teens with these Adidas Campus sneakers. They might be my new favorite and I love the casual-cool, effortless vibe they add to any outfit. I would suggest sizing down! I'm normally an 8 or 8.5 (I wear an 8 in Nike) and I went with the 7.5 but I might have even been able to wear a 7. 

These sneakers come in several more colors, including white, pink and grey. Personally, I think this clear brown/neutral tone is the most versatile and I'm all about purchasing pieces that are wearable in many ways. So far, I've also worn these with distressed denim and tees, a denim skirt outfit and, of course, leggings. 

I love the twist on a classic striped shift dress thanks to the mock neck and tie-sleeves on this dress but I'm also linking a few more styles I love that you can easily dress down with these sneakers—all under $100. 🙌🏼

Happy Monday! It had almost felt like fall was upon us the last couple weeks and I was just starting to be okay with the idea after seeing all the cute Halloween decor at my trip to Marshall's this weekend, but then we had a 100-degree weekend to put me back in full-on summer mode. It's these transitional weeks though when you're not quite ready to buy fall staples yet don't want to pack your closet full of summer items that can be confusing.

This is the reason I love adding basics to my wardrobe that can go from one season to the next. Though one thing I love even more than your average basic? Basics with a twist. This Topshop denim skirt from Nordstrom is just that. It has the classic fit you love from a denim skirt (so glad denim skirts are back by the way - does anyone else remember wearing them in high school with Uggs? 😂) and I love the on-trend touch from the lace-up detail.

The bright white is a great alternative to classic denim and I love the fresh spin it adds for summer yet it will look so cute with cozy neutral sweaters and booties come fall. This is just one of several skirts I've snagged this season and I have to admit—I love how easily they "make" an outfit. 

I find that shopping in the Topshop/Trend section of Nordstrom makes it really easy to find classic, yet on-trend pieces with unique details. This embroidered tee is another basic-with-a-twist I love and is one I've paired with everything from this skirt to shorts to black distressed denim and it will be so easy to top with a cardigan or moto jacket come fall. What pieces are you wearing now and into fall?

This skirt seems to be selling out, so I'm linking a few more favorite classic styles with unique details below.

Summer is quickly flying by and I'm finding myself gravitating more and more towards transitional pieces that will effortlessly take me into fall. One wardrobe staple I rely on to do so has to be the brown ankle boot, yet I actually find it incredibly hard to find a flattering pair with a low and comfortable heel. Enter the Yatina by Marc Fisher LTD from Zappos

I'm all about timeless styles made even better with a bit of edge. These booties are just that. They're a classic style that can pair with everything from dresses to denim. I love the casual luxe vibe thanks to the buckle and metallic detailing at the pointed toe. I actually threw these on with no socks and was amazed I had zero issues. I love that the heel isn't too high—just 1.5 inches—making them practical for daily wear well into fall and winter. 

This is my first pair of Marc Fisher LTD boots and I'm so impressed with the quality. The color I'm wearing is "Farro Suede" and I can see them pairing with everything, including my favorite fall neutrals but they do also come in black and another really great gray-brown tone that would be super versatile, effortless and clean.

I'm in-between sizes and I sized UP and they fit perfectly. We've had some slightly cooler days that I've been able to wear some pre-fall favorites and can't wait to step fully into fall with these suede booties from Zappos. How are you transitioning into fall?
