Transition Part I: Pastel Sweater

Fall Pastels 1

Life kind of took over last week, leaving me short on charge and this little corner short of a post. But I'm back to being decent at managing my time this week, and have two posts for you that are all about transition. TRANSITION. The word that basically means good ol' Mother Nature is confused as a chameleon in a bag of Skittles. I'm sweating and smiling one moment, shivering and cursing the next. I leave home at 9 smug at the rumored 'early Polar Vortex' being nowhere in sight, and return at 6 to winds howling like a banshee around me. Make up your mind, weather, because us working girls need to plan ahead to shave our legs!

In the meantime, there's no reason to stop looking cute (never a reason for that!), so we transition our closets from summer to fall. For me, that means continuing to wear my favorite summer clothes while incorporating key touches of fall fashion. Distressed denim shorts are a summer staple for most of us, and the easiest way to transition them into fall is by replacing tees and tanks with knits, thin and airy ones or thick and chunky ones. I love the pastel sweater I'm wearing.. it's warm enough if temperatures drop but thin enough to keep me comfortable in the sun, and the pastel peachy pink shade is so on-trend for fall. It's so comfy and cozy.. I may or may not have bought it in multiple colors. Oops!

It's been so unseasonably hot here in Buffalo that I had to go with a no-fuss, no makeup look. I love you, Lipstick, but I really needed some au naturel time.

As you may have expertly deciphered by now, I'm not really a sneakers kinda girl. The occasional forced trek.. maybe. But if I'm paying money to own a pair, it better have flowers on it. Also, the fact that it was on sale at H&M for $6 made the decision somewhat easy.

Super easy, super casual does it for this Tuesday! Stay tuned for a second transitional outfit featuring another summer staple later this week!

Thank you for reading, and have an awesome week!
