wear bold and bright colors at summer’s end

we’re starting to approach the change between summer and fall.  hard to believe really, all things considered.  from a fashion perspective, this means transition outfits.  it’s not time for coats and sweaters, obviously, but depending on where you are in the world, it may be time to think pants and sweatshirts.  it just so happens that’s what we’re featuring on the blog today:  the perfect summer/fall transition outfit. and while we’re generally all about neutrals here at style at a certain age, this summer has been about a good color pop.  we’re continuing that trend today, because why not wear bold and bright colors at summer’s end. 

wear bold and bright colors

i’m loving these peyton pants in linen from J.Crew.  if you tend to shy away from wide-leg pants because they drag and force you to wear heels, try a cropped pair.  nothing says summer more than cropped anyway, and nothing says fall more than, well, orangey-red as it were.  i’ve paired those pants with this bold sweater tank from Anthropologie.  it matches perfectly, and what a statement piece it is.

transition from summer into fall

i’m wearing a sweater tank today, again from Anthropologie.  sweater tanks are perfect summer/fall transition pieces, as their airy enough to pull off even when it’s still in the mid-to-low 80s.  if you’re looking for some lightweight sweaters, you’re in luck:   i’ve sourced quite a few.  so make sure to check out the links below.

accessories from Nordstrom

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is still going on ya’ll.  i posted about my beauty and skincare haul yesterday in case you missed it.  today, most of the accessories and shoes i’ve linked are sourced from Nordstrom.  make sure to pop on over—still some great deals to be had.

    I did your 5 minute arms and upper body workout yesterday. I have been doing a variety of arm exercises with weights for a long while. I really liked your 5 minute workout. I certainly could feel the workout in just 5 minutes. Thank you!

    Good morning Beth!
    Wow! I just love these bright happy colors. They really compliment your complexion beautifully. The perfect outfit for transitioning into fall. I love Spring and Summer but Fall/Winter clothes are my favorite.
    Black flats would be cute w/these flared crops too,wouldn’t they?
    I found a few cute things on Nordstrom.com but alot I loved was sold out.
    Wishing you a happy Tuesday.

    What a great post!! Love the colors. So bright and uplifting.

    Also watched your hair styling video. One question. How curly or wavy is your hair? I’ve always loved this style!

    Posted 8.25.20
    • my hair is more wavy and wiry than curly. glad you liked the video!

    Hi Beth.
    I wonder what happens to your hair in the humidity. I can do your hairdo in my air conditioned house but when I go out in the humidity i get waves where I don’t want them especially in the bangs i usually just give up and wear it longer and curly in the summer Since I always wear a mask when I go out, I would like to see how your outfits look with a mask. It sort of ruins the effect, especially earrings

    Posted 8.25.20
    • the hair products definitely help with the humidity. typically, my hair will flip to one side. but other than that it holds up well. i only wear medical masks as it’s a medical necessity. so no fashion inspiration on that point.

    I can’t wear high heels or tuck my shirts or for that matter, wear sleeveless but it’s nice to see there are a few who can as they get older. I like following you even though I can’t wear the clothes you do but I get wonderful ideas. You are forever young. 😊

    Wow – those orange pants are the bomb! A favorite pair I owned years ago – when I was a size Jr. size 5 – from Casual Corner – always made a real statement.
