And here we are, in the last few weeks of August already. It hasn’t felt like much of a Summer in Toronto this year, mainly because of all the rain we’ve had, so it’s sad to think it’s almost over! Though while the Summer has certainly flew by, it has been such a busy and fun one; the new cottage (trying to get up whenever we can), our best friends got married, my gf’s from Winnipeg & Australia were in town, my brother moved here, my sister came to visit, I took a trip back home to Winnipeg, my parents came to visit, my birthday weekend in Prince Edward County, girls cottage weekend and everything else in between! Needless to say, looking back on it, it’s been a great one! AND fortunately, I LOVE fall, and I think anyone that loves fashion would agree with me! Plus, I have a few fun trips coming up too 🙂
Transitioning between fashion seasons can be challenging, but also so fun! I always find it easier going from Summer to Fall, because you can take your summer florals and easily layer your fall suede! This outfit here is the perfect transition outfit when you’re trying to get a few more wears out of your summer pieces. This summer floral dress is a recent purchase for my winery tour weekend, but by throwing on a suede jacket it can be worn with the cooler fall-like temps. Suede is one of my favourite fall pieces to wear, and this suede jacket is one of my favourites from Nordstrom (and comes in other great colours!).
With summer florals, I try to keep the other pieces I’m wearing more neutral, such as my shoes. These blush tie-up sandals are the perfect neutral sandal to pair with just about anything! I also am such a hat girl, so this straw boater hat (similar here) went well with the casual, cute look. I’m also wearing my newest Daniel Wellington watch in rose gold, which I love! I wear a lot of silver, & gold, so this rose gold mesh watch is the perfect in-between. You can also get 15% off your Daniel Wellington watch until September 15th with code ‘throughherstyle’, & if purchased before August 28, you get a complimentary strap too!
