Besides the presence of Irene this weekend (stay safe everyone), the blogosphere has already been buzzing for weeks about the imminent approach of the glorious fall weather. I’ve been seeing the phrase “fall transition pieces” left and right, as we all prepare to shift gears with our wardrobes for the changing seasons. For me, the approach of fall means that I am more often swapping my flats for boots and wearing tights at every opportunity. I will admit that I’ve been gazing longingly at my scarf collection, eagerly awaiting the opportunity to wear them again.
I think this yellow pencil skirt is a great example of a fall transition piece due to its versatility. The yellow hue is equally reminiscent of the summer sun and the changing foliage of fall. Earlier this summer, I styled this skirt with a different navy shirt and yellow and turquoise accessories (seen here). Today, my choice of brown accessories and leather boots lends itself more to fall.
