We’re a long way from Autumn temperatures here in Florida, but I am shifting to Fall colors in my wardrobe. Just because! A girl does get weary of summer clothes after six months. But heavy wools and knits are just too hot, so I switch instead to Autumn-ish colors and textures, and away from bright whites, airy cottons and sheer blouses.
Olive is one of my favorite colors, and I am in love with this new silk skirt. I bought it online from Talbots, at a terrific sale price of about $30 (it’s now $59). It has a wide smocked waist (really comfortable), side pockets, and it’s my perfect length. My all-time favorite skirt shape is the full, gathered skirt, like this one. It feels so good to walk around in. I expect to give it a lot of wear this Fall and Winter.
I’m crazy for the top too (do I need more interests??). It’s Vivienne by Vivienne Tam, purchased at Ross for about $8 (similar on eBay). I love the slouchy shape. I realize I could be defining my own shape better than I do in this outfit, but I just plain love slouchy-over-full. And I know I will be just as happy/comfortable at the end of the day as I am at 9 AM.

How do those of you in warm climates make the transition to Fall? And do you have favorite silhouettes that you find yourself drawn to, time after time?
