I Feel Pretty | In Between

I Feel Pretty | In Between

I can hardly believe it, but today is our last installment in the simple summer series.  Since summer will soon be over, I decided this would be the perfect time to share my version of “in between” simple transitional style.

As the seasons start to change, sometimes an outfit has to do double duty in the course of a day. Especially in Texas where the weather can be pretty bi-polar!  Days usually start off really warm but may end up feeling more fall-like before they’re over.

In late summer, my typical summer uniform of shorts, a tank top and flip flops transitions slightly to cuffed jeans, a tank top and flip flops.  This is such an easy outfit to wear for just about anything, dropping the kids off at school, running errands or even a casual lunch with friends.


But during the “in between” sometimes (if we’re lucky) there’s a nip in the air.  All this outfit needs for a quick transition is a stylish and comfy sweatshirt like this one from ILY Couture.  Presto change-o!

My friend Kim is just getting her start as a Stella & Dot stylist so I’m hosting my first ever virtual trunk show!  I’m completely smitten with their new engravables and charms collection.  Here’s how I’ve been layering my new personalized bar necklace.  I’m not exaggerating when I say that I wear this necklace every single day.  It goes with everything. sweatshirt-necklaces [Stella & Dot Engravable Bar Necklace]

There are so many cute ways to layer the charms and personalized necklaces together. [“On the Mark” Necklace + Engravable ID Tag]

Simple necklaces work best for my everyday style but I also love this tassel necklace for fall.  It will be really pretty with a simple jewel toned blouse. gold-base [Beaded Tassel Rosary Necklace]

I’m picturing it with something like this.
