Creating a Fall Wardrobe in the Heat

in , , , by Katie Margaret, October 16, 2015

One thing that has definitely been an adjustment for me with living in Las Vegas, compared to Michigan, is the long never-ending summer heat.  Since fall is my favorite season to dress for, it's been hard for me to embrace the season with my wardrobe.  I guess wearing all my summer clothes can be a good thing because I'm not as eager to spend money on new fall clothes, but I'm still ready to put away the summer clothes and get back into wearing denim, boots, and scarves... just a few of my fall favorites!

Lately, I have decided to bring on the fall wardrobe, with or without the hot temperatures.  I've been going through my clothes and figuring out new ways to wear some of my summer clothes with a few of my favorite fall clothes and accessories. 

Here are just a few looks that I came up with.

This is a new outfit that I recently bought at Kohls.  The top (exact here) was $10.80, found in the clearance section and the leggings (exact here) were on sale for $6.99, both found in the juniors department.  I never shop at Kohls without checking Retail Me Not first for coupons.  I ended up getting 20% off of my purchase.  I decided to accessorize my new outfit with one of my favorite pairs of brown boots and my red beaded necklace.  This look is the perfect mix of fall and summer.

Scarves are one of my favorite accessories to wear in the cooler weather.  Last year I bought a few lightweight scarves at Charming Charlies (read about the scarves here).  They have turned out to be a great accessory for the warmer climate.  I wore this particular scarf with a pair of jeans, a black tank top, and black flats.  Wearing a tank top or short sleeve shirt with a lightweight scarf is a great way to accessorize some fall into your wardrobe when it's still warm out.   

As I've mentioned before, I love my boots!  Boots are one of my favorite fall accessories.  Wearing your favorite pair of boots with a dress is a great way to bring them out when the weather is still warm.  I also love to wear denim in the fall, so I wore my denim jacket with a t-shirt dress. 

I love wearing maxi dresses in the summer, because they keep me cool, and I love scarves in the fall and winter because they keep me warm.  So when I combine the 2 it makes for a great warm fall day outfit.

 For all of you who live in warm climates, I'm sure you can relate to my fall dilemma, but hopefully these looks will help you figure how to bring a little fall into your life...even if you feel like the summer is never ending.
