Hot in Fall: Pair the Perfect Summer & Fall Pieces as the Weather Changes
We are a few days into the first days of fall and the weather has barely changed from the normal hot and humid summer days. Fall or summer, when it’s hot I still wear shorts.
It took me a few decades to start wearing shorts. I felt my legs and thighs, although I loved them, were just too chunky to be exposed. Now that I have gotten over that pet peeve, I embrace my thick thighs and legs when wearing shorts.
It’s not uncommon for my amazing friends to bring back goodies whenever they travel abroad. Particularly from Ghana and Nigeria. So, my wardrobe stays well stocked with beautiful African prints that I like to mix with anything that’s the complete opposite. I like my African clothes to stand out on its own and really make a statement.
This top was hauled all the way from Ghana. It’s a little weighty because it is woven. So, it’s warm enough when the weather gets cooler in the evenings when I’m out and about. But, there’s plenty of breathing room on the sides with a very loose and low under arm cut which makes perfect sense when wearing it with shorts. (hummm maybe I will try a winter look with this top as well ;).
The little things
The boots are also very transitional. Not too booty and hot but a BEAUTIFUL shoe that fits just above the ankles. I settled this look with chic accessories and a relaxed Hunter Orange Rubber Tote makes this style fun, classy and chic.
As the fall weather slowly trickles in, keep comfort in mind and have fun putting together unlikely pairs. Although the warm weather will eventually come to a firm hault, balancing fall and summer pieces are not against the rules. Besides you are writing your own style rules. So Enjoy your style.
