Warm Fall Days Style Tips

It was another warm weekend here in Dayton! Fall fashion is my favorite but in these hot humid autumn days no one is thinking about cute sweaters and jackets. Keep reading to for a few of my style tips on how to dress for these warm fall days!

how to style for warm fall days

It is still warm.. and humid. We turned our air back on this weekend. As much as I’m itching to wear some fall coats and sweaters I will take the around 80 days for as long as I can! It makes fall fashion a little trickier but totally doable with a few style tips!

Rock a light layering piece with minimal layers! This past weekend for a Saturday Family adventure I tossed on a favorite of mine, the utility vest, on top of a casual tank paired with distressed denim and cute booties. Mimic this look by switching the utility vest with a sleeveless open cardi or a knit vest!

Pick up a pair (or two) of open toe suede shoes or peep toe bootie. Perfect time to wear those unique warmer material shoe that still shows bare skin is October when it is still near 80 outside! You can check out my fall shoe lineup here!

Opt for rich earthy tones. If you need to wear a tank this time of year, keep that bright turquoise packed away till next summer. Instead wear a navy, olive or deep berry color! Or pair a black tank with teal skinny jeans.

Wife. Mom. Boss. A new perspective on conquering it all

Wife. Mom. Boss.  A new favorite shirt for a Sunday Funday with the fam in my home city. Enjoyed our little afternoon watching trains, sipping cava and eating tacos in the Cleveland Flats.

Transition Florals with Fall Accessories

I was not sure I would get to wear this dress again this fall but babes- it is still reaching in the 80’s here (and all week too!) I really can not believe this weather we are having! By adding rich textures and fall staples I can take a spring floral dress into fall. Which is clutch in this weather! I purchased this dress on clearance at Kohl’s online over the summer for $10 to put back for fall. I thought even though it is a spring floral dress that the sleeves and rich hues it could still be pulled […]

Try A Cozy Crop for Fall

I can not believe it is the last week of September and it is still in the upper 80’s and humid in Dayton! The high temps are to be here for a few more days and I am sure it is the last of the warm weather till 2018. The nice part to the weather still being so warm is being able to wear those colder season pieces that are sometimes like WTF, when am I supposed to wear this? The answer is right now, when it is humid and 88 but at the end of September when we are […]

The Windowpane OTS Dress

Happy first day of Fall friends! I spotted this shift dress on the clearance rack at Kohl’s and had to grab it! The material is so soft, it is almost flannel like. It has cute tie detail on the sleeves too. This chambray shift dress is the exact dress and unfortunately the windowpane print is out of stock. Possibly available on the clearance rack in the junior section of your local store. I saw today that Loft has a windowpane chocker dress that is soo cute. Look at those belle sleeves! Which belle sleeves are a MAJOR trend this season! I […]

Why Your Phone Should Be Your Running Buddy

Last week I decided to go for a run on my lunch break. Something I never do but the weather was not too sunny-not too hot-not too cool. Basically a perfect day for a run. In my subdivision all the streets either dead end or dump back into the road used enter/exit our sub. So when a car with only a male driver passed me not once or twice, but five times at an alarming slow speed I was totally creeped out and a little frightened. I was glad I listened to my intuition and brought my phone for my […]
