Hi guys! It’s officially been fall for a few weeks now, but here in Toronto, the weather has been so indecisive. What else is new? Some days it’s cold and gloomy and others it’s sunny and feeling like the end of summer. Here are a few outfits that I think are perfect for this transitional time of the year. This time of year is especially interesting to dress for because it’s always cold in the morning, hot in the afternoon, and then cold again in the evening. My favourite thing to do for transitional outfits is take some of my favourite summer pieces and then layer to make them fall appropriate. You can always take off layers in the middle of the day if it’s hot and throw them back on when it gets cold again.
I’m sure you all know by now that I LOVE sets. This one from Free People is so perfect for transitional dressing because it’s a thicker knit fabric. Nothing cuter than matching shorts and a sweater. Of course, you can pair each piece separately or wear it together for a one and done look.

For this look, I simply took one of my favourite summer dresses and layered a cardigan on top. You can wear whatever kind of cardigan you want, but I thought it would be so fun to do a blue on blue outfit with the matching blue cardigan. If I was wearing a pink dress, I’d do a pink cardigan, or a green dress with a green cardigan. You get the idea. A monochromatic look is always a fun way to play up your favourite colour!

Another dress I loved this summer was this super flattering dress by Lioness with ruching up both sides. I feel like this dress was everywhere the last few months, meaning it was impossible to scroll through my Instagram feed without seeing someone wearing it almost everyday. And I can understand the hype. The ruched detailing is totally adjustable, meaning you can make the dress as long or as short as you want. This is perfect for transitional dressing because in the summer you can wear it as a mini dress (like I’m wearing it), and in the fall, you can make it longer so that it’s more of a midi! How cool is that? I opted to keep it as a mini dress here and just layer an oversized vintage blazer on top. I finished off the look with my vintage Louis Vuitton mini bag and some gold and tortoise accessories. I love how classy this outfit turned out especially with all the neutral tones and the brown in the dress which makes it appropriate for Fall.
That’s it for this week guys! Tell me in the comments below your favourite way to spice up your Fall looks! I’m thinking for my next few posts, I’ll be back to posting like I used to – an outfit and a song. There is so much amazing new music out right now that I can’t wait to share with you all. Stay tuned! 🙂
