I’m usually quite excited about the changing seasons, be it autumn leaves on the floor or cherry blossom on the trees. Yet, with each change I can’t help but panic over the “what do I wear now” feeling. I start thinking that I have no clothes to wear, when in fact I do.
Last week I fell into a discussion with an Image Consultant after asking her how to style a particular coat. She burst out with tonnes of ideas, and at first I was blown away but after a while I realized the majority of the clothes she mentioned were already in my wardrobe. It got me thinking, we don’t need to go out there and drop hundreds of dollars on clothes, all we need is some inspiration.
Transitional periods can be tricky, but if anything, now is the time to get creative. Instead of bulk buying seasonal trends, look through your wardrobe and have a little re-arrange. Maybe store away your summer clothes and move your jumpers / long sleeves to the forefront. Ask yourself, is this warm and season appropriate? Lets face it, you’re not going to be wearing a bright yellow floral summer dress in the rain.
My Go-To Summer Outfit VS Fall Transitional Outfits
Try it with a skirt :
When I was younger my Mum used to dress me in skirts / dresses with thick wool tights. I remember wearing colorful Dr Martin as well, but then again, it was the 90’s and my Mum believed in shoes that wouldn’t break even if they faced fire, ice, blow torch or possibly a dragon.
When I wear tights I always pull them up to the highest possible position on my tummy. Thankfully, with Spanx, you can buy high waisted control tights, which to me is maximum comfort! I’ll definitely be putting my order in soon!
I hope this post gives you a few ideas on dressing this fall. You don’t have to go out there and spend a fortune. A bit of re-arranging in your wardrobe and some inspiration and you’re there!
