About the second week into August, people start clamoring for fall. The hot weather is getting old. Your closet is getting boring. The models on runways, mannequins in stores, and fall catalogs landing at your doorstep are all telling you "shop, shop, shop! It's a new season!" Even if it isn't a new season yet and even if August is the hottest month of all and even September has some sticky days to boast.
As for me? I have neither the budget or the available lunch hour to shop for fall staples and it's too hot outside to walk to the mall and lug back a bunch of heavy coats. I have to resort to shopping my own closet and starting to bring on the layering happiness with old pieces. For the warm weather we're still sporting here in Oregon, it's little boucle jackets with LWDs. It's my skirts that fit my winter color palette (crocheted greys and navy blue animal prints) with very bright summer tanks and loose, flowy cardigans. This upcoming season for me is going to be all about the old. Out with the new! In with the old!
What pieces do you leave hanging in your closet for the fall that work equally well in the winter. Boyfriend jeans are a given! I always struggle with how to work summer blouses and little dresses into my fall repertoire and would love some advice.
