I realize it’s still 80 degrees and we’re just itching to get into our [hopefully not itchy] fall clothes. We briefly chatted about the seasonal transition on Monday (welcoming you into September) but it’s something many still struggle with — how do you wear something post-Labor-Day-appropriate without sweating through your entire outfit? As always, I got your back on this one.
Us fashion folks love to talk about “looks for less” and “splurge-worthy items” but how do we know when it’s really worth it? One rule of thumb is if you can wear the piece day or night and/or in any season, it’s probably worth the investment (as long as it’s not a super trend — I’m talking to you sneaker wedges). And we all love shoes, right? So let’s bring the two topics together and there you have today’s post.
Considering it’s felt like Fall in San Francisco, when it’s really Summer in Chicago, my wardrobe has taken an unexpected turn as of late. When I should be wearing shorts and sandals, I’ve ended up in pants and loafers…but at least I have this sweet sequin situation happening that makes up for it all.
If you follow me on Instagram, you probably think my closet only consists of five things (seven, max) because I’m one of those people who tends to wear the same pieces over and over (and over) again. I don’t believe in the whole “I was photographed in it once so I can never wear it again” mentality (I’ve even called myself out for being a repeat offender right here on CCF) because if you own things you love (bonus if they’re comfortable) why not wear the hell out of ‘em? So today, I thought I’d share with you my go-to items…and why I consider them to be summer must haves.
With Father’s Day just around the corner, I thought it would be the perfect time to talk dads, how their fashion may or may not inspire us and some menswear inspired styles you can wear this spring/summer.
