For some reason the beginning of September seems to {unofficially} mark the end of Summer.  We still have a few weeks left, but there is this shift that seems to happen after Labour Day.  It gets darker earlier, there’s a coolness to the air, and I start thinking about my wardrobe for the upcoming season.

The word you will hear over and over again this next month is transition.  I start thinking/purchasing transition items at the beginning of August.   When shopping I ask myself, “Can I wear this now?” and “How will I wear it for Fall?”   I picked up this little BCBG dress at their outlet right near where I live.  It’s been perfect for now with sandals and boho accessories.  You will definitely see me reworking this dress in to the Fall season.  How?  You’ll have to check back.

 

 

Valentines Day is less than a month away so naturally I’m adoring all the pretty heart prints out in stores. Truthfully I’m not one to make big plans for cupid’s day, but any day that encourages shopping and consuming chocolate is a holiday this gal celebrates in some way!

If you’re like me, I enjoy feminine elements without being too cutesy girly.  Luckily there are options out there beyond the traditional red and pink hearts of our youth.

Black and Gold Love

Black and gold is a classic combination.  It can have a bit of a rock feel to it but when used in pretty ways with hearts and bows, it becomes soft and flirty.  Would you wear hearts or bows?  If these prints are just not you try a heart bowl on your coffee table filled with your favorite candy.  This way you’re sharing the love with everyone in your home.

 

I’ve always been a sucker for a cute animal print.  The last several years I’ve been in love with owl prints…and still love them!   This season, I’ve been adoring all the fox prints out there.  Weather it’s a sweater, a pillow, or a baby onsie, there are lots of fun ways to add some fox into my life.  With Christmas just around the corner, I’ve been thinking about prezzie ideas.  Here are a few items I’m coveting for myself…oh, and others too;)

 

one: West Elm Fox Pillow $42.52
two: Old Navy Fox Sweater $19.50
three: Forever 21 Fox Ring $4.80
four: Carter’s Fox Print Baby Onsie $11.51 from JCPenny
five: West Elm Fox Print $64.32

 

One of my favorite things about Fall are cozy knits.  They are the ultimate in comfort and can look quite chic with the right accessories. The knit dress is a perfect transition piece.  I start with bare legs, flats, and a blazer and as the weather cools off I add tights and switch to boots.  This striped one from Old Navy Maternity has a casual feel to it but the neutral colours allow me to dress it up a bit.  I will wear this dress for anything from a dinner out to work meetings.  What is your favorite thing in your Fall wardrobe?

I’ve so been loving our actual summer weather we’ve been enjoying on the West Coast this year.  The last couple of summer’s have been cold and rainy, so it’s been a real treat.  As grateful as I am for all the sunshine and heat, I have been even more grateful for the amazing summer breeze my house has been getting.  A real gift for an expecting mommy.

Another gift came on Monday in the form of an amazing parcel from O’Neill.  As familiar as I am with the line, I was pleasantly surprised by this season’s variety of  pretty dresses and flowy seperates.  Easy dresses like this one are a staple for me during the warm weather months.  I can’t wait to share even more looks from O’Neill with you.  What is your go-to summer look?
