Let me start this by exclaiming: this shirt won’t break the bank. I was doing what most girls do and looking for some last minute table decor at Target when I casually walked by the style section. I saw this navy floral blouse and knew it would be coming home with me. At $25 it was almost tempting enough to buy two of them in the event of something happening to the original. I restrained, bought one and immediately dreamt up this outfit to show it off with one cool morning last week.

We are ALMOST to that point where the humidity is going to leave us for good, which means it’s time to start planning Fall outfits. Personally, I find that my best hues to dress in are Autumn hues: navy, hunter greens, maroons, mustard yellows, etc.- so I was ecstatic to find this top at Target with a lot of Fall colored flowers on it which means I could pair it with a variety of different pants throughout the season.
This particular iteration had me styling it with my favorite wide leg jeans, a pair of open-toed booties, and a floppy hat. It was just enough Autumn to make the outfit feel transitional without suffering in the heat of September’s late summer.
Here are a few tips to help you dress for the transitional weather:
- Pair a mini skirt with a light sweater and a pair of flats
- Wear Autumnal colored tops with white jeans- you’d be surprised how striking mustard and rust colors go with white jeans
- Pair Fall fabric bases with cotton tops- think corduroy, suede, and tweed
- Sub in open-toed booties for your closed toed boots until the temperature drops
- Wear dark cognac leather with white jeans or dresses
- Add a floppy felt hat to any outfit
- Wear darker shades of lipstick and darker nail colors
- Wear a long sleeve chambray shirt with a button front mini skirt
