transitional dressing

The day I had these pictures shot San Francisco was in the midst of a mini summer heat wave. So this is my take on transitional dressing- when you are wanting to dress for fall, but it still feels like summer. See that dewy glow about me? Yep, that not some magical primer- it's sweat, all for the sake of fashion. But, as usual it was worth it, this vest was pet by some of the most fashionable girls I know, and then some. 

My Staring at Stars vest always amplifies any look, remember it from last year? I paired it with a tunic I purchased in an XL size so I could wear it as a dress, my new navy suede booties, and a bordeaux pout- the easiest fall accessory in my opinion.

how to dress up a jumpsuit

{Paige denim jumpsuit c/o Bloomingdales, Asos bowtie, Vionic leopard booties c/o, vintage coat borrowed from mom (similar style), Bailey fedora (very similar style)}

I didn't get nearly enough milage out of this sweet denim jumpsuit during our short San Francisco summer, so I'm dressing it up in a different way into my fall style. Last time I wore it on the blog it was in a low-key super casual way. This time around as more layers are required this time of year the final look felt quite elegant to me. Fancy extras like a cashmere blend coat, a prim bowtie, and perfect comfortable calf hair booties upped the ante this time around. How do you rock your jumpsuits?
