womanfallOkay, so now it’s August – how did that happen?

Yes there’s plenty of 90-degree days left on the calendar, but not plenty of 90-degree beach days left on your calendar!

August often means back to work, school and reality. Those white cut-offs are just not going to cut it even at the grocery store. The look is winding down – time to get with the program and refresh your choices so you can seamlessly transition into the fall while simultaneously staying cool (both style-wise and temperature-wise).

So how can we dress cool, look seasonal and not look like we are headed to the beach with Ferris Bueller?

Let’s talk about some Sassy Transitional Essentials for Transitioning Into Fall!

Disclaimer – by no means are we packing away our white jeans, our ankle pants or our sassy sleeveless blouses. What we are doing is ever so slightly, styling them differently.
