Okay, so I know the calendar says that it’s Fall but the way global warming is set up, we never know which season we’re really in. It’s October and the weather in Washington, DC is playing games. Some days it feels like I should be wearing a maxi dress and sandals. The following week, it feels like I should be rocking a chunky sweater and thigh- high boots. The thought of this gives me anxiety, like “really Mother Nature?!” To be real, I refuse to change out my closet until the weather is consistent . Who got time for the back and forth? On a positive note, the ball of confusion is the perfect recipe for transitional pieces.
Transitional pieces– clothing that can interchange between seasons and carry you through that time of year when Mother Nature is being a drama Queen.
Now that we are aware that Fall is indecisive and inconsistent. I wanted to share a simple way to transition one of my favorite Spring/Summer piece into a Fall staple.
The kimono is a trendy staple. It serves as a bathing suit coverup, cardigan, dress, jacket, and robe. For this look, I decided to tie it and wear it as a dress. For a night time look, I can throw on a jean jacket or motto jacket. Keep it simple. Keep it chic.
What I am wearing
Kimono – HM (similar )
Clutch – Fias Fabulous Finds (similar)
Earrings- Marked by Mull
Shoes- Madden Girl
Here are some #Pinterestinspired Kimono looks that I am in love with. Again, Fall is about transitional pieces. So don’t fret just yet some of your favorite spring and summer pieces can carry you into the Fall.

Aww I am glad. Fall is such a in between season. So I just think what can I add a jacket with or a layer. However, Pinterest is my friend for inspiration.
