My favorite way of transitioning into fall is by pairing my skirts (and even dresses or shorts) with a lightweight sweater. This pale blue skirt is a light summery hue, but when it is worn with a black sweater and ankle boots it becomes perfectly appropriate for a fall day. Matching your pretty pastels with darker fall colors is a great way to keep your outfits colorful and seasonal without having to put all your summer pieces away at the last 80° day.
This sweater never seems to photograph well, but it is a mesh-type fabric that is great for layering. Tying it up at the waist shows off the silhouette of the skirt and provides definition. Adding a berry hued lip and neutral bag keep the look from getting too dark while still playing with fall colors. I love the way the baby blue and berry pink balance off each other!
P.S. sorry I've been MIA recently, things have been busy around here! I promise I'm trying to get back on top of my blogging schedule!
