We can shake our heads in denial all we want, but the summer is coming to an end soon. I know, I had to say it. With that in mind, I knew it was time to abandon my carts full of summer clothes and start to prep myself for the fall season. But how is it possible to shop for fall clothes already when it’s not even August yet? Well, the key is to find pieces that you could wear now and layer with warmer pieces in the fall. Some of my favorite transition pieces are flats, thin sweaters, and cotton tops.
The best part about finding those transition pieces now is end of summer SALES! If you haven’t read my previous posts about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, now is a good time to start looking because 1. brand new fall merchandise is on sale up to 40% off and 2. the sale ends August 8th! This is my favorite time to scan the clearance sections of big department stores and even boutique stores, because you could find some great pieces that you can wear for the remainder of the summer and transition to fall by layering it under a jacket or sweater.
In the outfit above, I wore my favorite white jeans by Frame and paired it with a cotton Theory turtleneck. A sleeveless black cotton turtleneck is definitely a must on my fall/winter checklist because you could wear it by itself, under a jacket, or even under a sweater #transitioning. It serves the same purpose as a white t-shirt which is my number one favorite piece of clothing. I decided to go with my Valentino Rockstud flats because I liked the contrast that they gave to the outfit and how nicely the colors went with my top and belt.
Below, I have linked the pieces I am wearing as well as similar items for you guys to shop and also curated some of my favorite transition pieces.
