True fall is approaching in Wisconsin. The time of delicious pumpkin spiced drinks, chilly mornings, and apple picking. But until it actually arrives, we have come to that tricky transitional period. It can be hard to dress for slightly chilly mornings and warmer afternoons, especially if you want to delve into your fall clothing and layers. There are some great ways to navigate these few transitional weeks seamlessly.

1. Booties are your friends. They don't cover enough to be too warm, but still have the fall flair. Booties with cut outs are especially perfect for this time. 

2. Show some ankle while you are at it. Roll your jeans up. The pants will cover enough of your legs in the morning or on cooler days. Still worried about the warmer temps? Go for a distressed look! Think of them like pants with vents built in! These distressed jeans are so lightweight and stretchy. They will be easy to wear well into fall. 

3. Wear traditional fall colors. This burgundy top from SheIn is perfect for transitional fall dressing. Its burgundy color works, but it is still short sleeved so it doesn't get hot. I love the neckline detail, too! 

4. Add fall accessories. This hat screams fall and definitely adds that vibe to this outfit. Even adding a similar hat to a summery dress helps to transition it to fall.

  2. I love tees with neckline details that make them stand out! I totally agree with you, color is the easiest way to get some Fall in your wardrobe since it's such a strange time of year temperature-wise.

  41. Burgundy always gets my vote for Autumn and Winter - wear it alot as it's such a flattering colour and this top is even sweeter with the criss cross at the neck.
    Wish I could wear floppy hats but sadly my head is so small they fall over my eyes!

  48. I wear tees a lot but really like the extra pizzazz at the neckline of this tee. Bumps things up a notch. Your transition tips are just what I needed to read. Accessories are a great way to begin incorporating fall into our wardrobes. Time to dust off my booties, too!
