Happy Friday loves!! Woot Woot! Who else loved the short week?! As soon as Labor Day hits it seems to signal the official end to the summer season. Everyone is all about the fall feels now. I love September and October in Dallas because the weather is absolute perfection. Perfect for playing outside with the kiddos and the best patio weather all year occurs in these two months. However, I am not quite ready to put away my open toed shoes in favor of booties (I’ll save those for the winter months). So today’s post is all about transitioning your summer wardrobe for the fall months, in particular how to wear your summer skirts in September (and all season long).

I love this embroidered Alice + Olivia chambray skirt. I wore it all summer with tanks, off the shoulder tops and minimalist stiletto heels. But to make it feel more seasonally appropriate in September (without throwing on the ever popular cami and chunky knit duo) I love to keep it chic yet simple by wearing my favorite summer skirts with button downs. I love this silk one from Equipment because it is slim fitting and so soft. I tied it in a knot at the bottom to keep it current and on trend. Sometimes a classic white button down (all though so chic on some ladies, I wish that I was one of them) can sometimes feel too menswear-ish for my taste, so I love that the embroidery from the skirt combined with knotting the blouse at the bottom gave the look an extra touch of femininity.

These stacked heel platform shoes are my go to shoes in the transition seasons (fall and spring).  I love that they’re still open toed because let’s be real it is still 80+ degrees in Dallas, yet they are more covered up than the minimalist stilettos that I favor in the summer months. And the Louis cross-body is a quintessential fall accessory. I plan to transition more of my favorite  skirts for fall by also wearing them with a simple chic blouse, stacked platform heels and a cross-body bag. Below are more embroidered skirts that I’m loving.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a fabulous weekend!

Xo, Deanie
