To Autumn: Transitioning My Wardrobe

Out goes the flirty sundresses, sea salt wavy hair and artfully melted ice cream cones, in comes cozy cashmere, hot drinks cradled in chilly hands and all the wonders of fall. 


The golden hazy days of summer are coming to an end and so as the weather in Paris gets cooler I’m turning to the perpetual question of how to move my wardrobe into fall. It always seems to me that as soon as I nail down my seasonal outfits, it’s time for the next weather shift. So in order to get the most use out of my wardrobe year round, I mix up my spring/summer and fall/winter pieces. This is especially useful if you live in a place where the weather is particularly mercurial, and a lingering heat wave or cold snap comes through. For fall fashion transitioning I find it easiest to stick to warm, neutral and dark colors. These are the shades we tend to find on the runway starting from September and they reflects nature’s color scheme as the trees turn into a kaleidoscope of reds, browns and golds. Here I styled this bright Project Social T romper with my Zara leather jacket and annual staple Dune black Chelsea boots. A leather jacket is one of those pieces that I return to again and again- versatile and perfect for a dash of old school vibes or to add a bit of edge to a feminine ensemble. Along with a suede jacket or classic blazer they are a great way to make your warm weather pieces last into cooler days. As much as I love the joy and carefree feeling that summer brings, I’m excited for the return of a chill outside that leaves our hearts all the more warm, and perhaps a new pair of boots.

    That yellow color is so beautiful! Never really experience fall season but I think it would be my favorite 🙂

      Isn’t it lovely- all golden sunshine! Fall is one of my favourite times of year- if you get the chance definitely try to see New England in fall as it’s marvelous!
