Smooth Transition


Now that summer is over, I've begun to think about ways I can transition my bright pieces into the cooler season and make them more autumn-appropriate.  This gorgeous silk blouse just arrived from Sheinside and, though I wore it over the weekend with white jeans & a fedora, I also love the idea of mixing it with a richer hue for the months ahead. Other summer/fall color combinations I'll be trying next: peach + burgundy, chartreuse + forest green, hot pink + navy.




What I'm wearing:
c/o Sheinside blouse (here), The Limited skirt (here), Sole Society wedges, Forever 21 tote (here) & necklace, Target cuff (similar), Dockers aviators (similar), Lips: Rimmel London Bordeaux

The blouse is such a gorgeous color. I love it with that color skirt. I wish I had had a better experience with Sheinside....I ordered a blouse from them after seeing your last post and they informed me after 2 1/2 weeks that the blouse was sold out. So disappointing! I'm not sure I would order from them again.

Awesome outfit! Its great that you will be incorporating your bright pieces into fall. There is no reason why autumn has to be only about somber colors.

I think that mint and tan are a lovely combination. I wondered how much the minty green / aqua pieces from the summer months would transition into the cooler temperatures - I look forward to seeing more of this series!
