Tag Archives: Summer to Fall Transition

Gray Long Cardigans + Striped Knotted Tee + Wide leg Raw Hem Culotts + Birkenstocks | Transitional Dressing

Spring casual… .OMG, edited to add…Fall casual??

The beauty of Seattle is that fall trends and spring trends sometimes can look the same!  The trees are a lot greener here in these images than now in fall, but…whatever.

Can we just pretend?

I’m tired of only having special occasions on here!  SOOO…this was back in spring when we took pics for fun.

Variations of this look on repeat!
🤷🏼‍♀️
Jeans + Fun tee + Cardigan for when the weather inevitably changes 87 times during the day.
👌🏻
This past Saturday, we went to the gym, went swimming, hit a local thrift store, and the Huz grilled dinner. 🙌🏻

All in all, my perfect Saturday 🙂 . AND…the same, spring, summer, fall, and winter!

Maya actually hopped behind the camera while it was on the tripod and snapped these first ones!

Aiming to post ALL THE POSTS while I have a break in my work schedule!
I had to lure her from behind the camera!!
THIS is why I do this blog!!!

To show her these images…

When all she wants to remember is me yelling at her, I need proof of the fact that most of the time, we had fun and loved on each other.
One of the MANY things I love, is that she still always reaches for my hand.  I’m sure the years are limited for that happening, but I will treasure it for as long as I can!!
She also still happily sits on my lap 🙂
Pretty much and every day occurence.  NOT on my lap on the sidewalk!!  But us laughing together, and it’s my favorite part of my day.

On me…

Sweater- Splendid (eBay, similar here)
Jeans- NSF “Culotte” in Jopelin (eBay for $14)
Sandals- Birkenstock “Gizeh” (thrifted, like new for $25!!)
On Maya…
Sweater- GapKids (thrifted, but similar here)
Jumpsuit- Tucker & Tate (thrifted, but similar here)
Shoes- Birkenstock “Rio” (eBay)
Keeping it Real…
The only bad thing about Maya behind the camera, is that she KEEPS ON SHOOTING even after I’ve said “Ok!!  56 clicks is ENOUGH!!”  haha.

Denim Jacket + Striped Top + Harem Pants! HELLOOOOO 90’s!!

Among the MANY things I said I’d never wear… 🙈

Harem Pants!

BUT, my first concert was MC Hammer, and he made them COOL for a hot minute in the late 80’s/early 90’s!

    So…I guess it’s fate that I love them now! 😂😍

I mean….SO COMFY!!

And I pretend that they are flattering on days when skinny “ANYTHING” is not going to cut it… 😩🍷🐷 Sooooo, I know I’m sounding like a broken record, but I took these images TWO months ago haha.  We happened to have a cooler evening, so we layered up a bit.  Because of that I put it on the back burner for when temps did start to get cooler for real!

Oh, in reality, this whole blog has been put on the back burner.  I’m just trying to stay sane.  Right now that means spending time with the family, tackling my client work first, and if we have a few moments left over…taking pics for this blog.

I’ve got about 10+ posts that we’ve taken pics of, but no time to actually work on the blog posts!! 😦

I’m kind of getting a routine down that lets me have more time to work while Maya is in school, so hopefully I’ll catch up on everything soon!  Famous last words..

Those two dots in the distance are my dad and Maya 🙂 Our faces hahaha! She’s in heaven when he does this.  I feel like I’m going to vomit from dizziness just watching!

 

On me…

Jean Jacket- 3×1 thrifted for $10!!! (similar here retails for $300!!)
Top- Clu (eBay, similar here)
Pants- Theory (eBay, similar here and here)
Boots- Birkenstock “Granada” (hand me down from my mom-SCORE!)
On Maya…
Jacket- Gapkids (thrifted, but similar here)

Sandals- (thrifted)
Keeping it Real…
Our faces in these…

Bodysuits + High Waisted Chambray Pants + Leather Jacket + Booties

I posted a look last week that was beyond comfy, yet still for the warmer temps.

Seattle has since gotten a lot colder, but it’s hopefully going to be back in the 60’s this next week a few times!

The easiest way I know to transition your summer favs into fall is by adding a fun jacket (my favs are denim and leathe!) and booties!

So…I did just that! And meanwhile…there’s Maya art directing haha. 😉

On me…

Leather Jacket- Plein Sud (eBay, similar here), faux leather option here)
Bodysuit- Velvet Torch
Booties- Sam Edelman “Posey Chain Trim Bootie” (eBay, fun ones here & here)
On Maya…
Dress- Hanna Andersson (love this for fall)
Leggings-Hanna Andersson (thrifted, similar here)
Clogs- Hanna Andersson ( similar here)
