Recently, I've been really inspired by pre-fall fashion. It's always this time of year, when it's hot, and all of the cute fall items are releasing that I find myself in a pickle LOL I want it all, but I also can't afford the heat stroke. We live in the south, so maybe some of you have the opportunity to wear jeans right now *gasp* (I'm secretly jealous!!) Anyways, I popped into Nordstrom with mom and the kids not long ago and had a really hard time not buying the entire women's apparel floor. EVERYTHING IS SO CUTE RIGHT NOW! 



Here is my top tip if you want to start purchasing fall inspired pieces that you can wear now, and then later - 


1. Color. Purchase clothing in a Fall inspired color palette. For example, I recently styled this cropped jacket with a leopard dress (see photo below) and now I can wear it with this gorgeous Free People dress. The colors work great together but are also the perfect fall tones. I buy pieces that are essentially interchangeable with each other. 

Another great example is this gorgeous Topshop skirt. It has flattering slits, and it's really lightweight to wear right now in the summer, but will be amazing in the Fall with a sweater! 



Double Slit Pleated Midi Skirt \\ Leopard Sandals (These run a half size small, and need to be broken in about a day and then they are perfect! I wear them all the time!) \\ V-neck Tee \\ Summertime V-Neck Sweater  












This dress is my favorite thing hanging in my closet right now, the design, colors, and pattern make it the perfect transition piece that you can wear now. I really love it print mixed with leopard, but anything you like would work with this! (Style tip: Wear a lace bralette with this dress. You can see the cute lace details peek out the back slit and underarms when you move.)
