fashion / summer staples to fall favorites

while i feel like it should be fall right now- the weather is telling me differently. this past weekend we have had a major heat wave in dc, so i have been limited in what fall items i can wear. i have been thinking about how i can turn my favorite summer clothes into fall ones, without having to splurge on more clothes. i have come up with three easy ways to do so: first, change your palette, then add fall accessories, and finally, change your shoes.  

Summer to Fall 1

anyone who has seen me in the last six months has probably seen me wearing this skirt. it is the most comfortable thing that i own. in the summer i generally wore it with a white or mint shirt, gold bangles, and my trusty sam edelman sandals. since it is now october, i wanted to change things up, but not die of heat and humidity. i added a grey tee that helped to tone down the brightness of the skirt. i went for gunmetal earrings (similar here) and watch (similar here), and added my new madewell purse. i think the shoes were the kicker on this outfit though- they really brought the whole thing home. the snakeskin combined with the black patent scream fall. i snatched them up at the rack a few weeks ago! i mainly love this outfit because it is comfortable and easy breezy.
