Dressing For Fall When It Feels Like Summer Out

Posted: Oct 10 2013

We’ve all been there, especially those of us who live in sunny California. ¬†We’ve spent the Summer season being bombarded with fall fashion trends and 900+ page books like Vogue and InStyle telling us what MUST HAVES we MUST HAVE¬†lining our closets {for some of us, our floors} before our Labor Day weekend hangover subsides.

So what do we do?? ¬†Well, if you’re reading this and happen to have a shopping problem {not a problem, more of a hobby, a little therapy, or at the very least…an issue, but definitely not a problem, right?} then you’ve run down to your local boutique where they greet you by name, their eyes glittering with joy. ¬†Of course they’re happy to nudge you towards the shiny racks with all of the new fall goodies, as they themselves are dying to sell you these gorgeous Fall Fashions that started arriving in their shops in ohh…mid-July.

You feel great! ¬†You’ve had wonderful success picking up all your new goodies and getting them home to play dress up and take a few selfies for your instafriends to swoon over. ¬†You’ve already filled your closet, you’re creeping in on your hubby’s side {or bf ~ or your domestic partner} and the dog is finding cozy new coats on the floor to call his new nap spot. ¬†Isn’t Fall Fashion great?!?

But wait…what the hell?? ¬†It’s 90 degrees out and its well into October! ¬†What’s a girl to do???? ¬†HOW do we possibly take all of those hot new Fall fashions and make it work in the real world??? ¬†Well, we’ve asked 3 of our favorite boutique stores in California to come up with one styling suggestion from their stores with the theme being “Dressing For Fall When It Feels Like Summer Out”

This is what they’ve done….what do you think??
