Hello there! I’m Michelle from quinnette and I’m more than happy to keep Kim’s seat warm while she enjoys some much deserved sun and sand. When Kim reached out to me to do a guest post she mentioned the theme of transitions and the first thing that popped into my little mind was transitional fashion and dressing for the changing seasons.
I live in Texas where it is hot hot HOT almost all of the time. We only have 2 real seasons here – summer, which lasts for about 8 months, and not summer which makes up the other 4 or so. This can be a bit demoralizing for those of us who enjoy dressing seasonally and incorporating a bit of variety to our daily ensembles. Over the years I’ve honed my sartorial skills so that I can keep up with fashion’s ever changing seasons, regardless of what the weatherman has to say about it.
I wore this outfit today. Note the autumnal color palate, long sleeves, and corduroy pants, all of which are classic fall staples. However, since the mercury is still reaching into the 90’s in my neck of the woods I’m keeping cool with a pair of open flat sandals. Additionally, the sweater is a super light tissue weight cotton and I’ve pulled my mop back and off my face and neck to keep it breezy.
Once things cool off a bit I’ll pull out the boots, maybe a bit of faux fur, and pile on the layers for a more traditional autumn look. Perhaps something more like this:
