During this transition season, it's so much fun to switch up the usual jeans and short sleeves combo for shorts and long sleeves - or in this case, shorts and a fabulous jacket! I love to experiment with my layers and try different temperature-appropriate combinations. A jean skirt with a colorful tank and a patterned cardigan is just as much 'fall' as corduroy pants and a sweater shirt. Shorts with booties, and a jacket or sweater up top has ultimately the same coverage as wearing short sleeves with long pants, but it can be oh so much more edgy! I dare you to play around with your fall style and think outside of your box a little bit. Fall is the season that allows for experimentation and creativity! Give it a try!
