Style File 08.25.11

The weather has been awesome lately. Perfectly warm, yet you can feel the fall coming when the wind blows. I am so excited. I love when fall comes around. I just wish it lasted longer. I am looking forward to transitioning some of my summer items into fall. I love wearing sundresses with cardigans or jean shorts with long sleeve button ups. It’s so casual and relaxed.

Do you love the cooler weather that fall brings? What are you looking forward to wearing?

This outfit is great for the summer, but I am excited to pair it with a sweater for fall. I bought a few cropped tops this summer at UO. I love the brass snap buttons up the back of this one. Perfect to wear with a high waisted skirt.

  2. oh, i absolutely adore those shoes! i’m a shoe gal 🙂

  3. You look adorable! I love it.

  4. Adorable! I love that top.

    I can’t wait for fall. Transitional seasons are the best because your whole closet is fair game! But, like you, the autumn is just way, way too short here. Sigh.

  5. Crop tops are a favourite of mine, too. They’re so flirty and fun, but when you wear them with high waisted pieces, they’re somehow still modest!

    I’m so excited for mittens this year. Nothing feels better than walking around town with a hot drink in between mittens.


  6. Adorable – I like the cropped top and how you balanced it out with the high waisted skirt. I’m always afraid to do anything to daring since I’m 30 but cropped tops with a little bit of tummy are just the right amount! I love this!

  7. Love that skirt! I can’t believe it’s from JCPenny!
