I’ve been thinking about style seasons lately. When I was a fashion merchandising student a million years ago, we learned these fashion seasons: fall/winter, holiday, resort, spring/summer. But I think that depending on our location and lifestyle, we all have our own personal version of style seasons.
(But hey, go ahead and sign me up for a lifestyle that gets a fabulous tropical resort vacation every winter!)
And as much as I love fall, I have to admit that we don’t really have fall weather in San Jose until about Halloweeen. The school where I teach starts in the middle of August, solidly in summer weather for sure. So I call this my pre-fall-back-to-school-summer season. I know, I know … I’m working on a more succinct name!
This outfit will be only one of my many attempts to bring a bit of fall-back-to-school-ish flavor into my outfit at this time of year.
To me the gingham and the statement necklace seem preppy with the basic denim pencil skirt. I added in some suede booties. Under the shirt, I have a plain white tee. Layers are always a smart choice at this time of year, but now that I’ve recently entered the “hot flash zone” layers are a must!
