WHAT I'm posting an outfit on my blog?? This is something that hasn't happened in a while -- like I've said before, my body image took a beating over the past couple months, and honestly, it's really hard to find someone to take photos for the blog without feeling like you're acting self-absorbed -- when in reality, my blog and my writing is a great tool I can use to get into the job market I'm interested in. Which is... I don't really know. But if I have some writing samples out here, some creativity, and an example of how I can work with brands and digital advertisers, I figure that can't really hurt. right??

ANYWAY here's my outfit and a couple tips on how to make your wardrobe transition into fall weather --

I highly recommend "investing" (in quotes bc they're super affordable) in a Piko dress - there are a couple similar Piko tunics linked below, but the best place to find a HUGE selection of layering pieces in every single color is They seem to have to best prices and largest selection. Throw a summer cardigan or kimono on over that (mine is from South Moon Under, similar linked below) and transitional accessories, and you're set for fall without whipping out your heaviest sweater and riding boots. Also, this isn't a sponsored post (when it is, I say so) - I just actually really think these are good pieces to have.

Tips for taking your layers into fall:

  • Take advantage of heavier, seasonal materials for your accessories - like suede, wool, or felt - to complement light, end-of-summer dresses and layers
  • Pick muted neutrals that can work with most colors - try mauve, cornflower blue, or apricot for a seasonally appropriate and trendy vibe
  • Check discount apps like HauteLook (where I got these booties!) and stores like Nordstrom Rack for lower prices - I got this Rebecca Minkoff for $108 at the Rack a couple weeks ago!
