Making the Slow Transition to Fall Fashion

As a summer baby, I will always love summer. Especially in Vancouver. With the exception of the haze we've had recently due to wildfires, it's been a pretty good summer. I could happily drink Aperol Spritz on a patio pretty much every day, and I've always had a soft spot for cute summer dresses. But the closer the days creep towards September, I do start to feel the call of the fall season, and to be honest, I'm not fighting it. The thought of crisp fall days spent in cozy cashmere sweaters sipping a glass of red wine do seem pretty appealing.

And so I've willing started the slow transition into fall fashion. Now, I say slow, because here in Vancouver it'll likely still be quite warm right through September. But I've started to add a bit more fall colour to my wardrobe at least, at this point.

I picked out this tie-detail dress from SheIn, and at $13.00, it was definitely an affordable find. I must say when it arrived though, I wasn't totally sold on it. The sleeves seemed a bit awkward, and the fit a bit frumpy, but oddly enough when it came the time to actually shoot this look, I actually totally fell in love with this dress! The colours really do compliment each other so nicely: the white, black, orange and green. Sometimes, it just takes me a while to see a clothing item's potential. And the black heels to match definitely gives the impression that bright summer colours are in my rearview mirror.

It is still summer though, so I pulled out my brand new prescription sunglasses from Clearly, which I bought recently. The brand/style I picked is the Kam Dhillon Schiffer-55. These are my first-ever pair of prescription sunglasses, and while I feel a bit old for needing them, I must say I am so excited to have them finally. I can actually see things far away again! Without having to squint with my regular glasses on - especially when driving! These frames are actually a pair of glasses frames, but Clearly can easily add sunglass lenses to a bunch of their regular frames. I love the slightly cat-eye shape.

Finally, I finished off the look with my favourite boat hat from Forever 21. The straw material has a definite summer look, but the black ribbon ties it all together with the fall colour scheme.

Hmm, I can almost taste the Pumpkin Spice Lattes now...
