Looking Ahead

While I'm living it up on vacation in Florida, the lovely Kimberly of Fab Find Under $50 has graciously agreed to share her tips for taking your wardrobe into fall.

_____________________________________________________________

I adore this time of year with the introduction of so many fall clothes at the stores and my mailbox stuffed full of the thick September issues of magazines! However, shopping this time of year can be bit of a conundrum when deciding what to buy. So, this time of year I try to only buy things that work now with the warm summer temps but also that can also be transitioned into fall and winter outfits.


Here are some examples of what I'm talking about:

Item: Pink Tulip Skirt
To wear it now pair it with a lightweight white blouse, nude pumps and a lady-like necklace.

Banded-collar blouse – Newport News, $29 Tulip pencil skirt – Newport News, $39 Bouquet Medallion Necklace – Forever 21, $7.80 Nine West Malynn – 6pm.com, $44.85

To make the skirt work when the temps drop pair it with a lightweight black turtleneck, leopard swing jacket, tights, eye-catching necklace and killer bronze heels.
