I fell in love with this red Pink Tartan skirt the moment I spotted it and crossed my fingers it would fit! That’s the one downside of thrifting, there is only one size. I was very lucky and this beautiful skirt fit perfectly. The Pink Tartan skirt is a great transition piece for fall as it is a heavier material. As I sat down to write this weeks blog I realized this entire outfit is thrifted!
This summer was all about stripes for me and I am continuing that theme into the first weeks of fall! I love stripes and every year my striped items in my wardrobe expands! Next year I am pretty sure I could feature a different striped piece every week! I think I have a stripe problem, lol. Anyone else love stripes? For fall I am going to layer some of my sleeveless shirts under heavier sweaters for those transition days. The stripes add a bit of lightness to the heavier sweaters of fall.
I am not normally one to thrift shoes as I find they do not fit me very well. If I am lucky enough to find a pair that are new or almost new, I am game to try them on. These wedge sandals have been with me for a couple summers now and they are a nice option for date night or casual meet ups. These shoes stumped me as I couldn’t find the brand online, but I was able to see the tag and they were leather so knew they would be a good investment.

I am going to keep wearing summer outfits with layers for fall until the weather is too cold! I know it’s September but the weather has still been really nice here in Vancouver and I am going to hold onto those last days of summer as long as I can.
3 simple ways to keep your summer wardrobe going:
- Wear sleeveless shirts with a sweater or lightweight jacket.
- Get out your tights! Floral, light or colourful tights are an easy way to wear your summer skirts.
- Put on those boots! Low cut boots can make any outfit feel like fall.
