Transitioning My Closet

Now that Labor Day has come and gone (😢), summer is on its way out. I will say though, that I am staying FIRM in the camp that summer is still here for a few weeks. It’s still hotter than ever here and it doesn’t seem like it’s going to change anytime soon. It feels a little weird to be transitioning my wardrobe fully into fall-mode, but some of my summer pieces really won’t work now though. I usually do a full transition at the end of September and in the meantime, I re-work some of my pieces in a “late summer” way.

As you know, I’ve been so much more thoughtful about my purchases this year. I saw this little silk top and new it’d be a winner. It’s even better than I thought though. (Looking at the pictures, I wish I tied the bow better! Whoops!)

A silk, crisp top and jeans is as good as it gets in my book.

For sizing, I’d say that it fits true to size for J. Crew tops. But you could probably go up a size if you wanted a looser fit. It might be one of the best pieces J. Crew has done in recent years. I’m more than tempted to get it more colors. I was thinking that the black might be great to have in the winter too.

I know I’m wearing jeans, but I think this outfit could easily work in many offices. Especially if you swap out the jeans for a nice pair of slacks.

Aww, your blister!! Outfit is beautiful, and I think the bow looks just fine 🙂 I’m also adamant that summer is most definitely not over, even if the weather way up here in Canada is a little less in agreement. We faithfully wear flip flips and sandals, with the car seat warmer, until the snow falls 😋 Only then do we concede.

We wear flip flops and sandals, and use the car seat warmer, until the snow falls 😋 only then will we finally concede.
