Good Morning Friends! So sorry for no post Friday. Due to scheduling I couldn’t get one up, but I did post my fave beauty oil on Instagram – so make sure to check it out! 

Today’s post is all about seasonal transition and getting motivated to clean out and organize. If you saw last Monday’s post, you know I’m very ready for fall to arrive, and in the meantime am preparing accordingly. It can be difficult to dress when the weather goes from hot, hot heat to cool & chilly temps, but there are some great pieces out there to help get the job done. See below for five of my tips to successfully welcoming autumn and it’s wonderful weather.

1. Closet clean out. I like to clean out my closet before each season changes. It helps me to know what I have and what I need. I also take all of the clothes, shoes and accessories I don’t wear any more to consignment for some extra cash. Because who doesn’t love some extra spending money?! 

2. Invest in fall wardrobe staples. No one enjoys shelling out tons of money for shoes and clothes, but there are some items worth investing in. In my wardrobe these are jeans (especially because I struggle to find skinny jeans short enough, so when I do I snatch them up), outerwear like leather jackets, and boots and booties. I find I wear these items over and over and over, so I really get my money’s worth. Plus, well made items will hold up better with additional wear and tear.

3. Save on trendy accessories. On the other hand, there are things I like to spend less on, like statement jewelry, scarves, and seasonally specific bags. The cross body bag above was less than $9 (not kidding – it was the good kind of sticker shock) and is a combo of olive colored leather & suede. I also picked up a wine colored cross body for under $30 featured in last Wednesday’s post here

4. Pick out transitional footwear. Some of the hardest items to transition from season to season are shoes, especially sandals. They can be very season specific and flip flops in winter, for example, are usually a no go, unless you live in sunny southern California or bright & beautiful Florida. The wedges I’m wearing above are absolutely amazing and are called the Castle wedges. They are from Corky’s Footwear and are currently on sale! I cannot say enough good things about this pair of shoes. They are made of leather and cork, making them incredibly light weight and comfortable for all day wear. Plus, the color makes them a great summer to fall shoe style. I plan to wear mine with skinny jeans, flared jeans and dresses. They are also perfect for anyone with narrow feet, like myself. I highly encourage you to check out Corky’s site and all they have to offer (I’m loving these and these). Make sure to use the code AMANDA25 for 25% off your purchase! 

5. Plan ahead for the holidays. The holidays present many fun events and reasons to purchase new items for your wardrobe. Fall outings to the pumpkin patch, apple picking, Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas parties, etc. etc. you get the idea. I like to plan in advance so I’m not scrambling at the last minute to find just the right outfit. Plus, you might just get a good deal or two if you shop sales ahead of time!

Have a wonderful Monday and make sure to follow me on Snapchat (pardonmuahsnaps) today for my first trip to San Fransisco! If you have any recommendations for restaurants, coffee shops or fun things to do send me a snap message!
