Summer Transitions

You wouldn’t know it’s August with the weather we’re having here in Chicago. But I’m not complaining. Temps in the mid 70s is just fine by me. It’s the perfect weather to start breaking in summer to fall transition pieces.

I picked up this tie-waist top from the Nordstrom sale earlier in the month. It’s definitely the most summer appropriate item I snagged. I love that I can wear it now, but I’m even more excited to create fall outfits around this piece.

I’m keeping it summer appropriate with these blush wedges. But I can see adding cognac booties and a leather jacket in the fall. I’ve definitely gravitated to a neutral heavy closet the last few years, but I needed a classic white top to add to my collection. This top was the perfect fit.

I was already regretting not buying this top during the sale, and now that you mention pairing with a leather jacket for fall?! love how you’ve made it work for the transition kind of weather (which i sometimes find to be the most stylishly tricky kind).


    Last I looked I think the top was still around in blue. Even at the non-sale price it’s a decent steal. I think it will be super versatile as a layering piece!
