think thrifted ~ transition from summer to fall with stripes and florals

floral and stripes seasonal transition outfit 110I love mixing prints any time of the year, but I think the colors in this outfit are perfect for these days when it still feels like summer but it’s definitely fall. floral and stripes seasonal transition outfit 104This is another thrifted outfit, styled by me and modeled by Grace.  It’s a great example of a cute, easy outfit for school or the office.  The simple striped tank is made more polished by adding the floral skirt and low heels, and the bag is big enough to hold some school books or  whatever you might need for your work day.  A front or side tuck makes it look like you put in that little bit of extra effort. :)floral and stripes seasonal transition outfit 105floral and stripes seasonal transition outfit 106floral and stripes seasonal transition outfit 107floral and stripes seasonal transition outfit 108floral and stripes seasonal transition outfit 109If you hadn’t noticed during fashion month, from street style photos to the runway shows, thick/chunky heels are back in a big way, as are lower heels.  These ones are vintage, but they tick all the right boxes to give your fall look a fresh update. floral and stripes seasonal transition outfit 111floral and stripes seasonal transition outfit 112This is also a good lesson in mixing prints.  The tiny stripes on the tank top act almost as a solid and pair nicely with the larger scale floral on the skirt.  I think it also helps that the floral pattern is more scattered, so your eye has a break from all the prints happening at once.

Happy Tuesday, friends!
