How has fall already snuck up on me? It seems like the weather went from hot and sweaty to chilly in no time, and while fall fashion is most definitely more of my forte, it’s a little sad to begin packing up some of my summer favorites in favor of my fall wardrobe essentials. I will admit that Dave and I have already argued about whether or not we should turn the heat on already. (Yes, these are the things we “argue” about. Homeownership problems at their finest.)

On one of those transitional days in late August, I met my friend Lisa of Story of My Dress at a nearby coffee shop to take a break from the work grind and shoot some photos. We were both thrilled to work with The Frye Company to share their store grand opening earlier this month. (They’re in University Village near the Anthropologie store, if you haven’t checked it out yet! It’s gorgeous.) And, we were both thrilled to be gifted a pair of boots to keep! I chose the Frye Tate Chelsea Boot, with a perfect, classic style in a gorgeous Bordeaux color.

Since it was still a bit toasty out at this point, one of my go-to pieces to wear during the summer-fall transition is a romper. It’s one of those pieces that I wear as much as possible in the summer because, 1. They’re adorable, 2. They’re very comfortable, and 3. The ones I gravitate towards always seem to have the best prints. I love this one from WAYF (unfortunately no longer available, but you can shop this print in a dress or find a similar romper from them here) because it fits perfectly into my fall wardrobe. Sounds crazy, but it’s as easy as popping a Moto jacket right on top to add back some warmth! It works out great on those days where it is a little chilly but the sun is still peeking out!
For this outfit, I paired my romper with this lovely vintage-inspired necklace from my good friend, Asa of Lace and Pearls Blog, new jewelry line! Aptly named after her blog, Lace and Pearls Jewelry is made with love here in the greater Seattle area. This piece was the first she ever created. Asa has many other beautiful pieces she’s been sharing on her Instagram page, however, the line doesn’t officially launch until later this year. Go check it out and give her a follow on Instagram. Not sponsored, just a proud friend! ;)
Finally, I threw a crossbody bag on it to complete this look. This is an affordable find from Charming Charlie. I can’t get enough of this bag – it has tons of pockets, perfect for toting whatever it is you might need (for me, that means sunscreen, lipstick, my phone, an extra camera battery, maybe a snack… the list goes on.).
Also, did you guys hear about the Shopbop sale? These are my favorite to shop because they always come at the perfect time – right when I’m needing to upgrade my wardrobe for fall! It’s time to take a peek into your drawers and see if there’s anything you need to replace (maybe a new flannel, pair of tights, scarf, medium weight jacket, or booties?)
