Fall Style Transitions with Neutrals

I wrote yesterday the importance of neutrals in my wardrobe as I move toward fall and winter.  Once again, I am wearing very lightweight fabrics but in colors not usually associated with summer.  The August collection at JJill was a perfect transition collection with several garments I took home to give me the style I desire this time of year.

Here is what I looked like last year on September 7.  I still own every piece of this outfit, but it was way too warm to wear it to work and be comfortable.  That is why I went shopping for some garments which said I was moving into fall, but were lighter weight and worn easier for the climate where I live.  You can see a lot has changed since then, but I am glad I purchased the pieces I did and decided to still have the seasonal flair, but in more wearable clothing.

I am always glad when I walk out the door for pictures and my husband/photographer says…I Like That!  I accessorized with another older Chico’s necklace that is black, silver, gold and red…liked a subtle pop of red.  These are the black Quinn Pant…in the slide show below.  The cardigan and top must have sold out, because I could not find them online.  You could check a local store to see if they have them in store.  I looked for some lightweight similar garments for the slideshow today.

Hope you are enjoying ways I will transition over the next 19 days until fall officially arrives.




  1. What color is your cardigan? It looks richer in color than beige. I do like that with the black and white. I’m so glad for the inspiration since I have several things I have to attend where jeans aren’t going to work. My black JJILL pants are always appropriate and you’ve given me ideas for tops and completer pieces! Today is one of those days, and I’m going to interpret your look here with things I have! Very timely! I do love that scarf in last year’s picture!

    1. It is a more of a tan than a beige. It looks great with black. I am so glad the look inspired you, Karen. Have fun!

  2. I think this outfit looks great! Just yesterday, I was looking at a cardigan with 3/4 sleeves. All my cardigans have full length sleeves, which I end up pushing up during this transitional time of year.
    I think it’s time to get a couple with 3/4 sleeves!

    1. Thanks Becky…I like it a lot. At work today, I am wearing it with a bolder necklace and I wish I had done it for the blog…it really adds a lot to the look!!
