Fall is a few weeks away in my part of the world yet it stays quite warm from now until then and as in person life is opening up, easy cool transition pieces are more essential than ever. Especially for those days when it’s not just the temperature bringing the heat! (Hello hot flashes)
Enter this sweet blouse I found on the clearance rack at my local Winners. It’s lightweight, has a hint of Fall floral and covered button details along with a modest short sleeve that makes it a great transition piece. It also suits my style personality!
I’ve worn this blouse on repeat with white denim and this pair of light denim as summer winds down. As the weather gets cooler, swap out the light denim for a simple dark denim (no rips or distressed wash) and a navy blazer to bring out the Fall colours in the floral.
The key to building a wardrobe with intention is knowing that you can pair any new purchase with at least 3 things you already own. If you can’t immediately do that, it means you are lacking wardrobe basics and should consider adding those pieces first. You don’t need a lot and they are your foundation and building blocks for dozens of outfits.
