I’m trying to soak up every last ounce of summer weather (and clothing) before fall hits. How about you? Hubs and I have our lake vacation coming up this weekend, so I’m not quite ready to embrace fall styles just yet. Once September hits though, oh baby. Bring on the cozy knits, boots, luxe colours and fabrics. I’m all in. I’ve already got my list of key pieces going – stay tuned for that. That said, we’ve had amazing hot days lately in Calgary, so I’ve had plenty of opportunity to put my favourite summer pieces into rotation one last time – including this floral bomber.
I picked this bomber up at Zara last spring. It’s got a really great cut and weight, plus it’s the perfect floral pattern on black making it work just as well in a casual outfit as it does with dress pants and loafers in the office. I love mixing sporty pieces with dressier items and a floral bomber fits that bill! I’ve actually seen some floral bombers making their way into Fall 2016 collections, like these from Forever21 and Zara, so I’m thinking I’ll transition this piece into some colder weather outfits. September feels like the official start of fall to me, with August being kept for summer items, so I’m gearing up for some transitional dressing!
Another item I plan to wear from summer into fall is this bodysuit. I’m obsessed with this one from Forever21 with the lace-up back. The exact one is no longer available, but they’ve got a pretty awesome selection of bodysuits online right now. I love the streamlined, tucked in look from bodysuits, so my collection really seems to be growing. The lace-up detail on this one looks really great with ripped shorts or jeans to add a little bit of edge.
What are you favourite summer pieces you plan to transition to fall?
