Colorful Fall Transition Outfits for Warmer Weather

The calendar says we need fall transition outfits to wear while Mother Nature is saying that’s incorrect. So what’s a girl to do? Lesley gives her take on this conundrum.

Quote of the day: “Nothing has transformed my life more than realizing that it’s a waste of time to evaluate my worthiness by weighing the reaction of the people in the stands.” Brene Brown

While I love this quote and believe in it, it’s still hard to remember at times. I am guilty of being uplifted by compliments and needing a pat on the back every once in a while. I tell myself this transformation is a work in progress.

I’m sure that’s exactly why most of us look to those “fashion rules” as a way to feel accepted by others with our style.
What does that have to do with Lesley’s colorful fall transition outfits for this post? Because it’s the reality that her fall outfit may be a tad different than those living where the weather is colder.

Lesley’s Fall Transition Outfits

Changing colors as part of fall transition outfits

Skorts: Attyre~~ Kimono: Lotus & Lotus ~~ Top: Chicos ~~ Shoes: Walking Cradles~~Necklace: Richlyn creation ~~ Bracelet: ~~ Purse: Insert from larger bag

Fall is Lesley’s favorite season and she looks forward to it for many reasons. One of those reasons is the lower temperatures and cooler nights. However, that will be awhile off here in Arizona.
Therefore she has learned to change up the colors in her wardrobe instead of the thickness of materials.

Insider tip: Color is such a huge factor in our looks for many reasons.
1-We look more alive in colors that work better with our complexion.
2-Color can be an indication of how we feel. More somber and darker days have us reaching for darker colors. It’s human nature.
3-What color you wear affects how people react to you. It’s like a smile or frown on your face.

That’s why Lesley chose these rust skorts as they make her think of the color of changing leaves.
The turquoise top gives off the thought of clear fall skies.
And the kimono has all of these fall colors in it to tie it all together.

The Finishing Touches

Lesley loves her accessories and was explaining how they can tie together any fall transition outfit. By choosing items that pull out the colors in the rest of the outfit, you create wonderful focal points.
For example this beautiful pendant necklace that Lesley’s daughter handmade for her. It creates that vertical line in the outfit and is a great conversation starter. Whereas, if she were wearing a turquoise pendant, long necklace, it would disappear on the same colored top.

Insider tip: When your necklace hangs over your top, you don’t want it to match the top because then you won’t notice it.

Perfect example of the insider tip is

Remember that quote above?? Make sure to stop worrying about how many accessories are too many? Time and time again I read an article that you should limit the amount of accessories.
But if they bring you joy, wear them. They are the exclamation points at the end of the sentence, and when you’re happy, there can never be enough!!
Or as one of my favorite sayings goes: “People will stare. Make it worth their while.” Harry Winston

I have heard women say they don’t wear kimonos because they are too “bohemian” for their style. That’s where I think it’s a shame to classify items. To me a kimono is the perfect, lightweight covering especially when it’s too hot to grab a cardigan.
And you can find such deals on them if you’re willing to try some online stores.

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a ton of times, have fun with your style and clothes and you will be happier on both the inside and outside. Too many times when trying to follow a particular style or rule it ends up closing you off and restricting your options.

Nude Shoes

Nude shoes have been touted as a woman’s “must have” in her closet for years. They are an easy way to figure out what shoes to wear with almost ANY outfit especially when your legs are exposed.
The advantages of a nude shoe
1-They are lighter and so don’t weigh down an outfit
2-A shoe color that “matches” your legs basically disappears. (While some will promote that they make your leg look longer, I will disagree. It’s not that your leg looks longer. You just don’t focus on them)
3-Because they blend with your leg, they don’t stand out like a white or colored shoe.
4-Remember the color “nude” depends on your skin tone. Many times a blush shoe can work also.

This pair of shoes, Lesley purchased from Walking Cradles. They are called the “Reece” and are a perfect low heel for everyday. While some flats can be too flat for comfort, these have a small heel AND the tiny pillows that all Walking Cradles have in their soles.
