I'm still in denial that summer is ending. I don't want to talk about it! I actually do enjoy fall weather, but I just hate knowing it will be followed by months of darkness and cold (I'm not really a winter fan). But the truth is, September is basically here and the early fall fashions are starting to show up in stores and online. So, for this Friday Fix, I'm sharing some of my favorite pieces I've seen lately that will help your wardrobe transition from summer to fall. Happy shopping (and make sure to make the most of these last weeks of summer)!
Eisenhower Slouchy Denim Jacket
I just really love the color of this jacket. It's so perfect for fall! The denim fabric will be the perfect weight for those days when you want to throw on another layer but you don't want to feel too warm. And the color/style kind of reminds me of an elevated version of a Carhartt jacket (which I love!!). I could picture wearing this thrown over a dress with booties for work, or paired with a t-shirt and jeans with sneakers on the weekends. For a similar and more affordable option, click HERE.

Patch Pocket Pullover Sweater in Walton Stripe
Madewell, you've done it again! This sweater is perfect. The color combination is everything I've ever wanted for fall, and I love the little patch pocket detail on the bottom. I picked this sweater up during a recent Madewell Insiders sale and I am so happy with it. The material is soft but not too heavy, and the fit is flattering. Wear it with a denim skirt for work or with some boyfriend jeans on the weekends.
Available at Madewell, $75
Via Spiga Ureila Mule
I am a big fan of the mule trend that's been happening lately, and this pair from Via Spiga is super chic. Mules are perfect for when it's still too warm for boots, but you're sick of wearing your sandals. And this pair will look just as good with a dress at work as it will with some jeans and a sweater.
Available at DSW, $79.99
Isabella Sinclair Dickens Plaid Dress
One of the easiest ways to transition into fall is to bring some plaid into your wardrobe. I LOVE this dress so much! It can be worn alone or under a denim jacket with sneakers for now, and then layered under a cardigan with some tights and booties when the weather gets chilly. The length is perfect for work, but it's also fun enough to wear to a party. While the price is a bit steep, the dress is so versatile that you'll get your money's worth.
Available at Anthropologie, $168
Who What Wear Seamed Asymmetrical Hem Slip Skirt
I had to throw this skirt in here because it's so fun, and I've seen lots of stylish ladies on Instagram wear it so well. If you have a special event or party coming up this fall, this skirt could be a great thing to wear. Just pair it with a sleek and simple black top/cami and heels. But I've really loved seeing it dressed down, with fun sneakers and a simple tee, for weekends.
Available at Target, $29.99
Button Denim Skirt
Last but not least, a good denim skirt is a timeless piece that is great for moving from summer to fall. You can pair it with t-shirts or tanks for now and then transition to sweaters (like the Madewell one I shared above) when the temperatures start to drop. This one from LOFT is great because it has a lot of fun details, and the length is work appropriate.
