Summer to autumn

It's definitely starting to feel a bit like autumn here! Granted, I'm saying this as we're currently experiencing a 90-degree day, but this weekend is supposed to be down in the sixties. Ah, Michigan. It's been great to start breaking out a few more layers with light coats and cardigans. I wear this denim jacket with everything. It's super easy to throw on over any dress. I still love floral prints, but once October hits... I can't really bring myself to wear anything too spring feeling! So I knew I had to bring out this dress one last time before the new season begins!

We picked up a couple of tees for Eric from Superieur Brand, which have a ton of great, unique Michigan t-shirts! This one is the State Fair tee. It's been fun to collect different t-shirts with him. We usually try to pick up a few when we take trips. Plus, I can steal them whenever I want too. Isn't that one of the perks of living with your boyfriend/husband? Double the closets? ;)

I thought it'd be nice to start wearing more glasses lately too. The idea of glasses with a chunky cardigan, boots, a pair of skinny jeans, and a hot chai tea latte sound much better than a hot summer day when you're literally melting in humidity. I just picked out a few amazing pairs from BonLook, and I'm excited to start wearing them! I'll be hosting a giveaway with them soon, so stay tuned.

Well, not much else is new! I'm hoping to take tonight off (blogging during my lunch break right now), so that Eric and I can head straight to the beach after work. We have to take advantage of the 90-degrees while we can! Pretty soon I'll be cursing under my breath at the bitter cold winter winds. Have a great rest of your Tuesday! xo

You look so cute and I love the glasses. You have me dreaming of the perfect fall day, even though it's 90 degrees here in Cleveland too :)

My good friend Alisa designs a lot of Michigan related products, I think you'd love her stuff! T-shirts, mugs, prints, etc!

She sells a lot of these things on her etsy also in a small stationery shop in downtown Ann Arbor called Rock Paper Scissors.

Check it out! :)

Thanks for the invite! I don't really blog, no...it's been an embarrassing amount of time since the last time i posted, eek! My blog is just where I post my illustration & design work - But I sure enjoy your blog!

I'm on the opposite side of the world waiting for warmer weather :) We've had a few warm days here and there, but mostly it's felt like the coldest part of winter the last few weeks. I ordered new glasses from Firmoo last week, I can't wait to get them. But now I remembered how irritating they can be in hot weather, haha.

Nikki Williams said...

that dress is so pretty and you look great in glasses!

I wish I had enjoyed more of Summer here while it lasted, I totally thought we would have a warm September too but I was so wrong - we had to put the heating on at work today, brrrr, although it is a great excuse for frequent coffee breaks.

Love this outfit, especially those shoes! Hope you have a great evening xo

Becca said...

It's been starting to feel like fall here, too, despite the weather forecast saying it's going to be 90 tomorrow! I love those shoes! I'm also excited to see your new frames!

Lucky! We won't be getting any fall weather here in Austin until like... November :( It's so hot! I only wish I could break out my cardis and jackets, they're feeling so lonely in my closet! haha

Rebekah Bradford said...

Love this outfit! those shoes are so cute :) And while I like warmer weather better...I have to say I'm craving chai now!

Callie - Coffee and Cardigans said...

This outfit reminded me just how much I am ready for autumn weather. It's still too warm here in the Pacific Northwest to be thinking about autumn, but I can't help myself. Love the denim and floral print together. The entire outfit has a great vintage charm to it. Love it!

Your glasses are fantastic!

Sarah Kulchar said...

Just found your blog and am also from Michigan. Today's weather was nuts!

Loving that dress and I cannot wait to bust out my fall wardrobe. You make this look effortless. :)

Samantha said...

This wall mathces your outfit, which makes it stand out so much more, it looks awesome! Beautiful dress and I love your glasses!

Bekka said...

Such a beautiful dress, and it looks great with the jacket. I wish it was appropriate to wear denim jackets all year round, someone should make them warmer!

Melissa at bubbyandbean.com said...

LOVE those shoes! I feel the exact same way as you do about the weather. I'm looking forward to a cool weekend, but also clinging to these summer days because winter will be torture.

Mélodie Nicolle said...

It really is a lovely outfit for a summer/autumn transition, and that dress is so lovely! Very cute girl!

I need those shoes, right now! Ah, I so have to save up and get a few great fall-ish shoes; I don't have enough booties!
Love this outfit, and your glasses are so cute! I can't wait to see the pairs you've picked out!

Gwyneth Genevieve said...

I absolutely LOVE this outfit. It's fall perfection. At the risk of sounding annoyingly nostalgic, it really reminded me of the things you used to wear: adorable florals, cute heels, and a sweet belt. Also, can we just talk a moment to talk about how cute those glasses are one you? Like, seriously cute.

Living with your significant other really is the best for clothing stealing purposes ;). I'm always trying to fit into my girlfriend cute chambray tops! (too bad she's like, a million feet tall, so I just look like I'm swimming in them...)

Taylor Laree said...

Denim & floral are one of my favorite fall combinations. Love it, & the glasses. The idea of a chunky cardigan & a chai tea latte & glasses does sound excellent!

your outfit is really lovely, denim and florals is always a good mixing! ;)

Hannah said...

I love this outfit so much! Perfect for transitioning from summer to fall! I don't think I'm quite ready to give up summer yet, but outfits like these (and the thought of chai tea lattes) make me a little more excited!
