If you guys are stopping by from Leslie or Alison welcome! I am so excited for this to be my first contribution post on The Blended Blog! It's been in the works for a while now and I am so happy to be a fellow contributor. Being my first blog hop and all, I hope I do it justice. Last week they talked about White Jeans, Maxi Dresses, and Striped Dresses, go check them out to see how they styled their looks.
I'm sure you're dying to know how I am transition my summer to fall wardrobe using the simple ankle boot. When I decided that was going to be my topic and I picked ankle boots I was thinking, how the heck am I going to style ankle boots, I came up with one good outfit, before fully committing to the gals. When all was said and done I could have kept going, it was so much fun and I never realized how many ankle boots I have, it might be a problem.
This was my summer look: simple romper and metallic sandals (Similar*)
I created 3 outfits, each one a little warmer than the next. Living in California, we are still going to have warm temps here for another month or so, but the evenings are starting to get cooler, so I can just add some ankle boots (similar*) and it keeps my feet a little warmer.
Or if I think I need it add a light cardigan.
Or a blazer. All the same outfit, different finisher pieces.
Black booties (Similar*)
My summer outfit: floral skirt, white tank, jean vest
Here I added the same ankle boots from outfit #1 and a jean jacket but I rolled the sleeves for the still warmish nights.
When the nights get a little cooler I can let the sleeves down and add a scarf.
My summer look was black shorts and a pink printed tank top
I added some black wedges and a light weight striped cardigan for those slightly cooler evenings.
Or I can add a heavier blazer with some heeled ankle boots (similiar*) for an evening out with friends or Mr. I think this one might be my favorite.
|That last picture, I just wanted you to see the cute heel on it...and I'm really hot at this point because it's 91 degrees and I'm wearing a really thick blazer, which makes me make silly faces|
My summer look: white jeans and a blue tank with my metallic sandals
There was so much I could do with this outfit. I just added some heeled grey booties (similiar*) and I already felt warmer (trust me, it was hot)
Hey it might get a little chilly if I go out at night, simple, add this same burgundy sweater that I have added to most of the other outfits.
If that is too casual, I can add some black wedges and a black blazer.
And because I love you guys, I added a scarf to show you that you can just keep adding layers, but the basic booties is the same, just adds a different feel to the whole outfit compared to the summer outfit, don't you think?
And then I melted Wicked Witch of the West style...just kidding, I quickly striped it all off and threw on some shorts and a tank with some flip flops and headed to my parents for dinner. There you have it, my Summer to Fall transition piece: Ankle Booties, I hope if you don't have a pair you seriously consider getting one for your Fall wardrobe! Come back next Monday for three new styles from some other The Blended Blog contributors, Joy, Nicole and Christy.
