Transitioning to Fall

We’re officially into fall right? It’s hard to tell since it’s still been nearly 80 degrees every day in Pittsburgh! Fall is funny for a lot of fashion-loving girls. We get so excited to wear all of our layers and cozy sweaters that we end up wishing away the nice weather. However, it is possible to transition to fall without going into full on layers and layers of sweaters and blanket scarves. In today’s post I’m taking some fall trends and making them friendly for warmer weather.


You may remember this sleeveless sweater (which I last styled here) that I picked up during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. It’s such a great piece. I love the detailing in the knitting, and the oversized turtleneck. It’s that great mix of cozy and classy. Sadly, this exact one has been sold out since the #NSale, but I’ve found some similar options here and here, and linked them for you below.

The last time I styled this sweater, the outfit was geared towards a casual weekend look. This time I wanted to re-style a more work appropriate outfit. This sweater is lighter weight than it looks, which makes it great for wearing while the weather is still mild.


Suede is going to be really big for fall; we’re already seeing it hit major retailers. Most every store has their own version of this classic. The skirt I’m wearing in today’s post is $15!! I had been looking for a suede skirt for quite a while, and the fact that this one was so affordable was a no-brainer. I’ve already styled it with a black turtleneck, button-up blouse, and a simple graphic tee. It’s a really great staple to have for fall.


  • Skirts and Dresses are perfect for now, and adding tights later
  • Lightweight sleeveless sweaters are great with jeans, tucked into skirts, or even worn long and belted.
  • Pieces in neutral colors are versatile and super easy to mix-and-match

There you have it: proof that you can still dress for fall in warmer temperatures. Now enjoy this beautiful weather!

Happy Friday!

  • With these below freezing temps, the heat in our apartment can’t keep up. That meant we all had to do some serious snuggling last night. Josie didn’t seem to mind one bit though 🤱🏻 She is a magnet to snuggles.
What are you guys going to stay warm during the polar vortex? I can’t wear enough layers! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Speaking of, I linked this down parka on my Poshmark. After our little one arrived, it became even more important to make room for only the essentials—which meant having only one parka (against my will). Great color and quality, per usual, from @eddiebauer for anyone in need! I linked my whole closet in my bio and on the blog to see more!
