Casual Fall Wear Series Part 4

 Summer To Fall Tops With A Few Additions

Hi everyone!  We've made it to the last post in my series, "Casual Fall Wear."  If you missed parts 1, 2 or 3 be sure to click on the links to catch up. None of what I have shared is rocket science and, indeed, may be ideas you are already trying. But, if you are like me, sometimes I forget about certain fashion combinations until I see something that jogs my memory and makes me say, "Oh yeah...I can wear that!"  So, it's nice to have reminders. 

For today's post, I'm styling a summery red top from J.C.Penney and layering it with a white mock turtleneck top. I love the red color of this top and the flowers add a nice touch as well. I ordered this same top in a gold color thinking that both of these tops would pair well during the Fall over a tee or turtleneck. They run a bit large, also, which works well for layering. 

You know, tops like this are so easy to wear and just so comfortable and that's what I look for in clothing. 

I decided to pair the gold top with a blazer that I have owned for a hundred years...or close to that, lol!  Blazers are back big time this year, even with shoulder pads, so this plaid blazer is right in style once again. 

As you can see, I've chosen to do some pattern mixing for this look. But, if that is not your cup of tea, you can choose a blazer or sweater in a solid color. 

I must admit that it has been fun to do this series and think through the many ways to take summer looks into Fall in a casual way. Shopping my closet is always a fun thing to do and I encourage you to shop your own closet and see if you have a bright summer top that you can either layer with a turtleneck or tee or a blazer that you can wear on top. Have fun and let me know what you find, OK?  This ends the series, but I'll be back on Monday with some crafts I've been working on and a little hair info. See you then!

Until Next Time,

I like how your tops take some of the brightness and cheeriness of the summer season into fall when days get shorter and sunshine often seems less plentiful. I'm always intrigued with how you pair clothing, and it gives me ideas about new combinations from my own closet. I enjoy your posts about crafts, so I'll be looking forward to Monday's post.
