Hanging on to Summer


Labor Day may have come and gone, but we’re still enjoying the warm weather here in Pennsylvania. I’m ready for sweaters and boots, but with the weather forecast calling for the 90s again this week, I’ll still be wearing shorts and flip-flops.

Finding some middle ground with style is possible though. Dressy Bermuda-length shorts are one way to transition into fall. These are a trouser-cut denim pair from Loft.If your work dress code permits them, with heels and a blouse they are a perfect alternative to a skirt. BlogHang2They’d also work with sandals and a t-shirt for a weekend look. I topped them with a silk ivory and navy print ruffled camisole with a gathered waist from Ann Taylor. It’s lightweight enough to wear under a cardigan or blazer.My choice of blazer was a crisp navy and white striped version from the Gap. This would look great over a dress or even with jeans. Stripes are so versatile and one of my favorite patterns!

Vintage inspired accessories finish off the outfit.

While I enjoyed summer I am ready to welcome fall, it looks like we have a few more days of hot weather ahead, so my cold-weather outfits will have to wait!
