Holding Onto Summer

Yesterday was an unbelievably gorgeous day, it hit the upper 80's and it just felt perfect.  Not crazy hot like the upper 80's in August would feel, literally just perfect.  In fact we've had fabulous weather for pretty much the last week straight, and yesterday was probably the last perfectly nice day we'll have, at least for a while yet.  Not that I'm complaining about it dipping down, it will be nice to break out some warmer fashion choices.  But while summer was still lingering around as we're transitioning into fall it was nice to get to mix and match pieces from the different seasons together.

White denim always reminds me of summer, but I am finding ways to incorporate it into other seasons.  Here I paired it with a newer find from Nordstrom Rack, this gray Pleione faux wrap top.  I love the Pleione tops and always keep my eyes open for them anytime I make a trip to the Rack.  I already have plenty in my closet.  Since it had been so warm I was able to pair this outfit with my sandals I picked up early in the summer.  I love the details on these, and even though I scored them at Marshalls, they are still available online.

Since I have been so into the neutrals lately it's easy to add a little punch of color with a handbag.  This teal color is a perfect transition into fall.  Check out some of my teal handbag finds below.  The things I love about this color is not only is it a great transition into fall, it also works great again as we transition into spring.

What color do you have your eye on this fall?


  1. I love this outfit! Glad you're figuring out ways to incorporate your white denim into your cooler weather wardrobe. :)

  2. Love those jeans with that top! Such a great color combo!


  3. Love the dark teal totes from Sole Society and Modcloth...and $60 each? I'll call that a bargain! :)

  4. I love that clutch!! Seriously TJMaxx and Marshalls has such amazing finds right?

  5. I'm trying :) We'll see how far into the cooler weather I make it!

  6. I feel like you can never go wrong with gray, it's my favorite!

  7. Right?! Those were my two favorite too! And the fact that the one from Modcloth is reversible to a cognac color! It's not THE cognac bag, but it's still pretty cool and may need to come home with me!

  8. Always! That's the dangerous part, love them, probably a little too much!

  9. WHAT? I totally missed that the Modcloth bag is reversible! Unbelieveable...that's like getting TWO bags for $60. Who can pass that up?
