The In Between.

While our summer temperatures may still be hovering, there is no doubt here in Seattle that we are on the verge of fall. Mornings have been grey and cool, and next week the forecast is returning to rain.

I always have the hardest time figuring out what to wear in between seasons. It’s not warm enough to head out without a light jacket, not cool enough for full force fall looks. So, I’m taking a cue from this editorial and mixing things up just enough…

A summer maxi + fall coat is perfect for these transitional days. You could keep the sandals going too.

Or play around with a skirt + boot combo (which I actually did last night!) topped with a fall hat. A breezy trapeze jacket does the trick for a quick topper.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt to do a little fall planning either…

I’m really loving rich browns for fall, and this tone-on-tone action is perfect. Crazy embellished sunnies optional.

One of my all-time favorites is the camel + hunter green palette as well, although right now I’m seeing a lot of olive greens, so maybe it’s time to switch that up a little?

I’m totally going to spend time this weekend on my wardrobe reshuffling, cleaning out for fall, and making a list of my next must-haves for the season to come!
