Between the end of summer heat and the early fall breezes* transitional dressing is in full swing. I used to think it was daunting not being able to fully layer up or just throw on a dress and sandals. As a remedy, I've come up with a simple formula. Start with a tee shirt and a breezy skirt (a simple summer outfit on its own), add smart shoes and a cardigan and top with a velour hat to keep the wind from messing up your hair.

*Those same breezes that knocked my camera off the tripod and majorly broke it. Hopefully I'll have it fixed soon, but until then its just me and my iPhone.
