As much as I love summer, when the leaves start to fall, or here in California my allergies start to act up from the dry high temperatures, I get a itching for fall to kick in.
Ready to get things moving along, last Friday I switched out my closet; meaning summer in storage till next spring, fall winter clothes down. I took everything out of my closet, packed up summer, then went through all of my pieces from last winter. Next, 3 piles. One for donation, another one for re-sell and the last pile for items in need of repair/drycleaning. My mind is clearer, now that this big step has taken place. I feel ready to move forward, without the dread of cleaning out my closet weighing on me each day, when I go to get dressed.

Here, we have cooler mornings and evenings, coupled with dry, high temperatures in the afternoon. Indian Summer. So how do you transition your look, without suffering from heat exhaustion mid-day?
My fall uniform consists of denim, a lightweight top, cardigan/poncho/lightweight jacket, and transitional shoes – in fall colors. I also update my makeup colors.

The poncho was a must for the morning chill,
but by 1pm, I had stripped down to my silk blouse and jeans.
I have a thing for Bohemian tops, making ponchos a necessity. Big sleeves and cardigans don’t mix well.
Since it’s too hot for booties and boots, and sandals scream summer,
fall is the time for my lace-up booties.
A statement necklace, helps to balance out the heaviness of the poncho,
resulting in a more “Fall Look”.
