I know with the heat wave we’ve been having it’s hard to think about the fall. But given that it’s mid-August and school is starting for some, I’m getting really excited to pull out some of my favorite fall outfits. But here’s the thing, it’s actually still really hot in Los Angeles in late-August and even September. So I started thinking about how I could possibly wear some of my favorite fall looks in the heat without sweating my butt off. And that’s what inspired today’s blog post.
So I’m sharing two tops from Nordstrom in today’s post that can give you a staple fall look. You guys know I buy almost everything from Nordstrom. They just have so many options for every season so their isn’t really much reason for me to search multiple stores – which I totally don’t have time to do these days anyway. And when I’m shopping online, I love that I can buy things without worrying about returns because if anything doesn’t fit right, their returns process is SO easy. Heck, the pre-paid return label comes in the box the clothes are delivered in. So yeah, I’m a Nordy’s girl for sure.
FALL LOOK FOR SUMMER
SO let’s talk about these looks. The first set of photos is my “summer” fall look and in the second set of photos, I’m wearing my favorite fall staple look – which is a long sleeve striped shirt, a scarf, dark wash high waisted jeans and red hunter boots. I wear this exact look so often in the fall because it’s super cute, easy to put together and screams fall weather. However, it’s just too hot to wear this out right now. And I know it will be too hot to wear it come September. Maybe not every day, but most days. So I wanted to figure out a way I could still get the look, but not be drenched in sweat as we transition seasons.
So when I found this navy blue striped T-shirt online, I thought it was a perfect piece to give me that look but be more appropriate for summer. And this top is on sale right now for under $15! Isn’t that insane?! It’s such a steal and the perfect way to transition your wardrobe into a fall feel. I even think a little white bandana tied around your neck could look so cute with this outfit. And the neck line of the top makes it super flattering. The scoop of a neckline totally makes a top FYI. Something about the way it shows (or hides) your clavicle.
FALL LOOK FOR FALL
This second look is the fall option of the same look. This striped top is also super affordable at under $30. Striped tops like this also look super cute with plaid scarves which are a must have for fall. And if you don’t have red Hunter boots yet, snag them now!!!! They are SUCH a fall staple and I plan on styling a ton of outfits with them this fall. Getting them at the beginning of the season means you’ll get the most use out of them all season long.
Anyway, just wanted to share this simple way to dress for fall in this heat! Hope you guys love these affordable and cute tops!
