Oh you feel that crispness in the air … Fall is here friends!
And you know what that means: Summer Sales!!!
Yep! It’s your chance to nab some super cute summer stuff on the cheap.
Stay on the lookout for low-cost pieces in jewel tones that can pull a summer wardrobe into fall.
And the perfect opportunity to try and extend these new pieces you acquire into transitioning weather outfits! So checkout my recent summer sale finds and how I’m gonna make them work into Fall….
Winners and Reitmans seem to be my go-to stops for summer sale hunting, especially if I’m in the downtown office.
For cooler Autumn days — simply add tights, trade in open toes for closed toed shoes and a sweater layer in a warm colour, like orange below 😉
Ya’ll know I’m a shopaholic. It would be really easy to blow your fashion budget on buying new clothes for the fall, especially with so many tempting window displays out there right now. (I fell victim to it recently after a simple dental cleaning appointment – if you’re following me on Instagram, then you know what I mean).
But your Fall Tales doesn’t have to buying a completely new wardrobe. By adding richer textures, darker colours and a little added warmth your summer clothes …and you’ll be able to wear ’em well into right into winter!!!
So, what do you think of my Summer Sale, Fall Tale here? You like?
What are some of your tips for transitioning your wardrobe for cooler weather?
Ok friends….seems like Fall came and went in a blink of an eye and we’ve already been thrown into Winter weather. I thought before we start focusing on winter wear, we’d take a look at some of the trending colours and vibes in Fall fashion on the blog.
Here’s a roundup of a few I personally have embraced over the last few months of blogposts. Each image is linked to this individual post, just click on it for more details on the look 🙂
Fall (and Winter) is perfect for ‘Sweater Weather’ …. so here are a few looks incorporating just that – sweater glamour:
The big patterns I noticed and loved the most this Fall have been BLOOMS ON BLACK and PLAID!
and last, but not least….is LEATHER!! It was everywhere:
And of course a combination of everything above to transition a maxi skirt for sweater weather and leather — a little teaser of an upcoming blogpost friends 😉
Waddya think of this Farewell to Fall roundup? Think there’s potential to take some well into the Winter months too.

The easiest way to make your Summer pieces more Fall appropriate isn’t to ditch them altogether, but to come up with new ways to wear them.
Here are a few simple ways to stretch your wardrobe and make all your old favorites work until Winter.
This simple short-sleeved navy geometric patterned, faux wrap cotton summer dress has been in my Summer-outfit-rotation for a few years now. I picked it up from the GAP in LA…and even though it’s starting to fad, I just can’t part with it. It’s kinda perfect for Lindy Hop lessons – that’s where I was off to in this outfit. 😉
To make it work for Fall weather I simply added tights. If you’re not into tights, try leggings (like I’m doing in these pics). They’re perfect to wear under your summery dresses for more coverage and warmth, while still staying fashion-forward. I chose a loud colour to help break up the other darker colours of this outfit.
Boots are an autumn staple! They make all of your summer outfits warmer and more functional. Easy Peasy!
You can find booties on the cheap and wear them with your favorite skirt and cardigan/sweater combo like I’ve done in this Outfit of the Day. Boots are an ideal item to stretch your wardrobe — I highly suggest you getting a couple of pairs in different heights. 😉
How I Got The Look: Navy geometric patterned dress from GAP; Ooh-la-la sweater, Navy & gold earrings and tights from Old Navy;Guess purse
