Mission: Transition

At the request of a very talented Fashion Show Producer, and in honor of the 73 degree weather in Boston, Consider this your inside scoop on transitional dressing.
The Three Key Items According to Ali: the silk blouse, the leather vest and the suede boot[ie] (in my efforts to pack one suitcase for two months, these are all nestled in)

Silk blouses look fab with the sleeves rolled up, and in a winter shade like navy or deep red it's the perfect layering piece. They breathe well and fall so nicely on the body.

The leather vest is perfect over a sleeveless or short sleeved t shirt. While still maintaining the Fall look, its a hip way to layer and stay cool (adjective and temperature).

The suede boot[ie] can be thrown on with a short skirt, wool shorts, denim cut offs....the world is your oyster with the boots, just wear Fall colors and no Spring fabrics.

More options: wool pants with t shirts, short skirts with long sleeves, and sleeveless dresses that you can add tights to when the weather chills.
The key is try to mix a very Fall item, in relevant Fall colors (suede shoes, leather, wool) with a piece that keeps you cool.

This blog dedicated to those who live in two season weather. Fear not sweet Texans, Floridians, and Cajuns, you can be in style AND be cool.

  1. I really like how all these pieces sound together. I have yet to see a leather vest though. Do you have any recommendations? I am in Milwaukee but will be hitting Chicago to shop next month :)
