Currently loving: Transitioning to fall

I’m already starting to think about transitioning to fall so here are the things I’m planning for my fall wardrobe.

Pairing black blazers with summery patterned dresses and black tights like this outfit from Thread Social.

Fall shoes, especially these gray slouchy boots by Stella McCartney and perfect black booties by Christian Louboutin. Both at Net-a-Porter.

For a more affordable option, I found these adorable gray booties from Report and just ordered them. I’ll let you know how they turn out!


And lastly, I can not wait to start wearing and buying cozy cardigans again. Cardigans have to be my most favorite piece of clothing ever, I have no clue how I’d live without them! This Theory cardigan is just perfect in every way.

I know, I know, we wait all year for summer to come in Seattle but now that it’s here, I’m ready for fall!

    Awesome choices, darling. I've propelled straight into fall, especially with the yucky summer we've had here in Colorado. I'm having a hard time planning what to wear for a wedding I'm attending (in Kansas, yeesh!) Labor Day weekend- I'm already yanking out my wool dresses and tights and I know that is going to be SO wrong, but I simply can't get my mind to switch back to summer.

    I love that first black blazer. I love it love it love it and I need it.

    I'm with ya on the fall items, I am so looking forward to being cozy and warm in cardigans and sweaters. You've also swayed me towards getting some great boots too….aaaah…will my bank account survive? : )

    I just went on a "transitional clothing" shopping spree Sunday! I bought a lot of flowy floral tops & dresses that I can still wear for the rest of the summer and they're going to look great in the fall under a long cardigan or blazer. It's my day-after-birthday tradition that I've been adhering to for the past decade! Thanks for sharing these gorgeous boots- I love Endless and their FREE overnight shipping!

    i was just telling my friend today that i cant wait for fall to get here too! seems like summer weather just arrived here in NYC…but, yuck i hate it! i hate sweating, city heat, and summer wardrobe. can't wait to bust out my sweaters and blazers and tights and start LAYERING again! yay!

    so funny that my comment comes right after Diane's! It's true that it does seem that summer just started in nYC bc the weather has been so dreadful but I love it. No, I don't love the sweating and the heat on the subway platform but I love when it's really hot out…and when it's cold here in winter it's COLD…this winter in particular was horrible. so..I'm still enjoying the weather while I can and looking forward to a couple of months from now when I can bust out my boots again:)

    I love the sweater from shopbop! It's still over 100 here, or I'd be thinking about my fall wardrobe too! I can't wait to get my skinny jeans and tall frye boots out 🙂

    Aww I will miss summer when I'm stuck in the eternal wet greyness that is Vancouver winters, but your fall picks make the coming cold seasons seem a tad more tolerable.

    i love the grey booties. I actually purchased an ankle bootie during nordie's half yearly sale… and while I'm excited for fall/ winter months to come so I can wear it, I'm a bit apprehensive too as I do not know how to pair it my outfits.. Tiff, can you possibly create a few look book to help us?

    love the cardigan and the grey boots. Somehow everyone seems to be done with summer, except me, I am still enjoying the sun may be because it never gets too hot around here and when it does the cribbing starts. Anyways but on my last shopping trip I too was looking for pieces that will easily transition to fall items
