Fashion Friday: Buy Now, Wear Later

While I can’t even begin to deal with the fact that stores are carrying Halloween (and even some CHRISTMAS) merchandise in July, I am excited for fall. By far my favorite season for numerous reasons- sweaters, hot coffee, fires, cool air, Henry’s FIRST BIRTHDAY (what?!?!)- I still respect summer and hate to rush it. BUT, with fall clothing making its way onto the racks, it’s a good time to buy things that can not only be worn in the fall, but now as well! Getting two seasons out of clothing is fabulous financially, and here are some examples of how to do it:

Lingerie inspired tops and dresses will be hot for fall, but are also perfect for hot weather NOW.  Wear alone with bohemian accessories in the heat, and then layer with cozy sweaters and boots come October!


Now: shorts // earrings // necklace // sandals

Later: jeans // boots // sweater // necklace

The sleeveless turtleneck sweater can be a perplexing piece- but it’s great for chillier summer evenings and then acts as a fabulous layering piece in the cold!

Now: jeans (only $64!)// espadrilles // bracelet // earrings

Later: jeans // bodysuit (fall staple for layering)// vest // flats

The simple black tank dress is a no brainer purchase for summer, but it also works fantastic in the fall with a belted sweater cape and little booties!

Now: necklace // sandals

Then: sweater wrap // booties // earrings // belt

I’m kind of dying over this embroidered top- so fun paired with white jeans now- but also perfect to wear with black skinny pants and a leather jacket for a night out int he fall (and make sure to add a pop of color with the shoes!)


Embroidered blouse

Now: jeans // sandals (designer look for $69)// clutch // earrings (have-LOVE)

Later: pants // faux leather jacket // heels (so comfy) // earrings
