As much as I hate to admit it, there is a part of me that actually gets excited for Fall, and that is the fashion that goes hand in hand with the season. But while we are in that in-between state where it’s not quite cool enough everyday to pull out your coat and boots, I’ve put together a look combining a few of my favourite pieces to help you transition from Summer to Fall. Enjoy!
First up is probably my most worn denim, cropped ankle jeans, which are quite honestly a godsend for us shorter gals. A good pair of jeans will keep you warm as the weather starts to cool down, but this particular cut is a bit more breezy for days when you don’t know what to expect. My favourite pair are Paradise Mine from Aritzia…which, admittedly, haven’t been washed since I bought them (I wont tell you how long ago that was).
Next up we have a great pair of sunglasses. You may think, Brittany that’s a strange transitional piece, but when you live somewhere like Calgary where it’s sunny all year round you actually end up wearing your shades everyday. I once heard that sunglasses are the best thing you can do for your eyes and whether or not that’s true, I feel I’d have to agree. I hate forgetting them at home and on days when I do I am left squinting in the sun trying to go about my day with eyes half shut! The pair I’m wearing above are the Pembroke style from Finlay & Co which have a clip-on gold mirror lens that you can wear with or without. A girls gotta love her options!
Lastly I had to share this gorgeous leather jacket from local designer and bestie Anneke Forbes. A great transitional jacket is a must for Fall and an item as classic as a black leather jacket will always be easy to style. I wore this particular jacket (actually the whole outfit) as a part of the Women’s Outerwear Basics for Breakfast Television a couple weeks back. As Anneke mentioned in the segment, a leather jacket instantly turns any look edgier and I could not agree more. As someone who typically dresses quite feminine, I love the badass vibe a leather jacket brings to the table. Tres chic!
Stay tuned for more fall fashion in the upcoming weeks/months and please let me know if you have any questions on how to style certain pieces for the season, I’d be happy to help! And if you love these yellow heels as much as I do be sure to snatch them up quick as they’re currently half off at aldo!
