The Striped Transition Sweater You Need for Fall

Labor Day is a week away, which means fall’s arrival is on the way! I absolutely love summer and I’m sad to see it go. However, there are some key pieces I love to rely on to transition into fall. This striped transition sweater is the perfect way to ease into fall. The color block stripes are a fun trend from summer. Plus, you can tuck this sweater into shorts for cooler summer nights. I can easily see myself throwing this over a swimsuit after watching a sunset at the beach. Or you can wear it when you’re in chilly restaurants or grocery stores when you’re running errands. I’m wearing a size US 2, which fits like a size 0-2. This sweater is meant to fit a little boxy and oversized. It’s also perfect for layering as I like to wear an extra cashmere layer underneath to stay extra warm when it’s cold.

Shades of Pink :: Pleated Romper Styled Up & Down

If I’m completely honest, I love all seasons, even winter. There’s something so refreshing about the change in temperature, scenery and overall feel. With that said, I am quite partial to spring because of pink and peonies. This pink pleated romper has such a flattering silhouette and is one of those pieces you can just throw on and head out the door. The fabric is a luxurious satin that looks beautiful in any lighting and will complement so many skin tones. I truly love the way the fabric drapes. Pieces with beautiful draping always have my heart, so this pleated romper is naturally a favorite. Of course, one of the aspects really drawing me toward this romper is how it looks like a matching set. There’s a blouson “top” and flowy shorts when it’s really all a romper!

Spring Must-Have :: Marigold Ruffle Dress & Trench Coat

I’m a big fan of a true sunny yellow shade but this marigold ruffle dress is making me think twice. This is such a flattering color on a variety of skin tones. If you are looking to branch into yellow but are unsure of where to start, I recommend this. The ruffle detailing gives this dress a fun, feminine touch. Also, this fabric feels like a dream on. It’s a slinky weave that feels cool on the skin and doesn’t tug. I’m wearing size P in this ruffle dress and it fits quite well. There is a little bit of extra room in the bust, but it doesn’t bother me too much. The cap sleeves do have a slit in them. However, this is definitely still a very work-appropriate dress. Swap out these block heels for something a little sexier to make this a fun girls night out or date night dress. This marigold number is quite versatile.

Touches of Gold :: Balloon Sleeve Dress + Block Heel Boots

Happy November 1st! It’s no surprise I love sweater dresses, so I’m acquiring more and more. This River Island balloon sleeve dress comes in the most beautiful gold color. Mostly acrylic, this knit is a medium weight fabric and can keep you warm on crisp days. It’s cozy and soft to the touch, not itchy or uncomfortable. Of course, the balloon sleeves are my favorite detail on this dress. It adds a whimsical touch while being understated. Another detail I love is the inverted seam detailing throughout this balloon sleeve dress. It’s simple but really helps make the dress pop and gives it texture. When I was younger, I hated turtlenecks. I’m not quite sure what it was about them. Needless to say, I have grown out of that. Sometimes, scarves get in the way if it’s super windy, so high necks keep me warm.

Gingham Shorts Dressed Up with Ruffles

Gingham is one of my favorite patterns during warmer months. There’s something about the pattern screaming quintessential American. These blue gingham shorts caught my eye the moment I saw them. While they are cut into a more casual shape and resemble fancy track shorts, they can easily be dressed up or down.
