OOTD: Transitioning to Fall in Summer Heat1:00 PM
Labor Day has come and gone, here in the US, and that means no more white! It's time to rotate our wardrobes to cozy sweaters, corduroy, and rich colors... ah, the delightful chill of the autumn months. Can't you just feel the wool?
Did I mention that in the south the heat is still reaching above 100F!? And, the humidity... we're talking hair volume-doubling! So, you might say my sweaters are still safely stored away in the cedar drawers.
This posed a bit of a dilemma Tuesday (the first unofficial day of fall) when I was standing in my closet trying to decide what to wear. If I couldn't wear fall-appropriate clothing yet, I thought I should at least try fall-appropriate colors. This had me lost too for a time, as most of my summer clothes are lighter colors, for obvious reasons. Then, I remembered that "Tangerine Tango" is still the color of the year so, I checked the Pantone site to see what else I had to work with. What a happy coincidence it was that there are multiple bright colors still acceptable for fall!

How are you balancing the changing seasons? Does your current weather match what the calender claims?
Happy transitioning! x
