The first week of September is upon us and it’s starting to look and feel a little like fall here in Athens. So it’s the perfect time to think about transition outfits. I still want to be comfortable with the warm temperatures, but shifts in color palettes and changing up your accessories to transition into Fall are both techniques I rely on.
By changing up your accessories, I mean exchanging summer sandals for boots, booties, loafers, ballet flats; adding a denim jacket or a blazer to your ensemble. Just by changing up accessories, we can get a little more mileage out of certain outfits that worked perfectly well in summer.
Today Kelly is showing us how shes uses accessories to transition into Fall
She's featuring a dress from Ann Taylor, and pulled together 3 alternates

These peep toe booties are old, but they are (and have been!) such a popular style for fall that there are a ton of great alternatives. I've listed several I have collected above.
I am looking forward to exchanging the peep toe booties for riding boots and adding a denim jacket when temperatures dip further.
Ann Taylor does a great job with petite dress sizing. This dress falls right at my knees and the proportions are perfect. It has a gathered elastic waist that gives the bodice a blouson effect that is nicely accentuated with a belt.
Alex and I are at the Georgia Club today. We will have a relaxed and quiet dinner enjoying the serene views. We come to the Club regularly for dinner; its relaxed atmosphere and good food are certainly top reasons; Beth and I often have work dinners here, where we share ideas, discuss plans for blog posts and future e-magazines.
