I love summer. I love its long, hot, lazy days and its relaxing nights spent on the patio, grilling out with friends. I love all the weddings and the travel. But, gah, summer can be so busy!
Around August I find myself a bit super worn out. With a fair amount of last minute travel, I got behind on work and life, and I’ve been playing catch up since we got back from Miami.
When August knocked on Monday, I was split on how I felt about its arrival. Part of me will be really sad to see yet another Chicago summer pass, but the other part of me is almost ready for fall.
There, I said it!
There’s something about fall that makes me want to slow down, spend an extra few minutes lingering over my morning coffee, wrapped up in my cozy sweater and slippers, and take longer walks with Oliver while enjoying the reddish orange leaves before they fall off the trees.
Yup, fall is magical.
It’s also my favorite season to dress for—anyone else? Layers, booties and cozy sweaters! Recently, StyleWatch teamed up with Charming Charlie and the result? A fun, limited collection of products featuring this season’s latest trends. I styled a few of my favorite accessories to create a casual, cool fall outfit that I’d wear any day of the week, here they are…
My closet is full of booties in different colors and styles because I wear them so often in the fall. I think they look more dressed up than traditional boots and are perfect for fall because the weather isn’t too cold yet.
I’ve been loving these tassel booties from the StyleWatch x Charming Charlie Collection. The wedge heel makes them extra comfortable and if you’ve been following for a while, you know I love tassels (see Exhibit A and Exhibit B)!
2. Black Bag
You can never go wrong with a classic black bag, am I right? I love the fun texture on this bag. It’s very spacious inside and holds a lot, which is perfect for busy days where I find myself running from place to place!
3. Long Necklaces
Lately, I’ve been finding myself gravitating towards simple, dainty jewelry. It goes with everything and I love the minimal and effortless look of it! Plus, they’re perfect for layering! This long mod two-tone necklace is simple, yet bold, and these colors will go with just about everything!
While I’m getting my mind and closet prepared for fall, August is also the perfect reminder to live up every single moment and savor this last bit of summer while it’s still here!
Do you have split feelings on the change from summer to fall? Which fall accessories do you have in your closet?
