{ jersey aubergine dress: Nine West (Marshall’s, 2008-ish); snakeskin skinny belt: NY&Co; ballet flats: LC Lauren Conrad (Kohl’s clearance); laptop sleeve: Kate Landry (Dillard’s clearance, $20) }



And so begins the slow transition from summer to autumn….

Earlier this week, I threw on a t-shirt and skinnies and wrapped my neck in a lightweight scarf {ya’ll know I love a scarf} but quickly realized that, no matter how lightweight that scarf may seem while standing in central air conditioning, it was a heat stroke waiting to happen. So I begrudgingly took it off, rolled it up carefully, and placed it back in its basket with all the others with a longing whisper: “soon, friends.

While I’m waiting for Florida to get the memo that fall is here, I’m putting away the pastel florals and pulling out the darker palettes and textures. Aubergine is one of my favorites this time of year. And how cute is this laptop sleeve, discovered at the bottom of a clearance bin at Dillard’s recently? It sums up all the colors I want to wear this season in one pretty (and protective) package!

Now, pass me a pumpkin latte, please! If I can’t dress like it’s fall, I can at least drink like it.

    I must say, one of the best things about living up here in Michigan is the changing seasons, my favorite of which is Fall…wish you could come and indulge all your scarves as you drink cider and eat cider mill donuts…best.time.of.year.
