Transition to Fall

fall, riding boots, what to wear fall



Today, I joining a few ladies from The Blended Blog to share how to transition boots from summer to fall. I got these shorter riding boots this past spring.   I like the cognac color and how it pairs well with black and cream. I wore them in the spring/summer mostly with jeans and a tank. This fall I have worn them a couple of times with my plaid poncho and my cable knit sweater.



SPRING/SUMMER LOOK
SHOP MY LOOK
Tank: Topshop // Jeans: J. Brand (Also, seen here)
Necklace: The Limited (Similar here) // Watch: Michael Kors // Sunglasses: Michael Kors
Boots: DUO c/o (Similar here and here) // Lipstick: NARS (Manhunt)

This tank is great for layering under sweaters.  I picked it up in red and yellow, in addition to the cream.

FALL/WINTER LOOKS

SHOP THE LOOK
Poncho: BP. (Only $38) // Turtleneck: The Limited (Similar here)
Jeans: Paige (Similar here under $65 here and here)
Boots: DUO c/o (Similar here and here) // Watch: Michael Kors

SHOP THE LOOK
Sweater: Nordstrom Rack (Similar here and here - under $20) // Blouse: LOFT
Jeans: 7 for All Mankind (Under $90!) // Clutch: J. Crew (Similar here)
Boots: DUO c/o (Similar here and here)
Necklace: Kendra Scott // Watch: Michael Kors


Another way to transition into fall is with color. I love burgundy for fall and mustard yellow. Or, the seventies are back - and a big trend for fall with flare denim.




THOUGHT OF THE DAY
I wrote this the other day - and I shared it with a dear friend of mine who has been struggling.  I wanted to share it with you, too, for all of us who struggle with fear. I have mentioned fear before - as I talked about it last week.  So, I hope you find this uplifting and helpful.

"Fear cripples me sometimes. Sometimes I get an overwhelming pit in my stomach thinking that something is wrong - or what if something bad happens?  I have always been a bit of a worrier; but, as I have gotten older, it has gotten worse. Some days I wake up with this overwhelmingly anxious feeling.

I know that fear is not of God, and that God cares for me.

When I am fearful, I need to recognize that Satan is stirring up trouble.  The devil wants to unsettle me and derail me from trusting the Lord. In times like this, I have to stop and resist the devil, so he will flee from me (James 4:7).  And, then I need to remember that God is in control, not Satan. The all-powerful God of the universe that makes everything function in the perfection in which He created it, will take care of me. (Isaiah 41:10)

I am His precious child.  He will protect me. (Psalm 27:1) There is not a moment that goes by that God is not fully aware of my situation and my needs. (Matthew 6:26-34)  He loves me unconditionally, and wants the best for me.  He will not leave me stranded or alone, and I can fully rest in this assurance.

So, I pray that today that I may rest in His peace, and because of Him I will not be crippled by fear."


FALL TRANSITIONS

As I mentioned earlier, I am joining the women of The Blended Blog for a "blog hop" to share how to transition to fall.  So, next, be sure to "hop" over and check out Karen from She Though She Could where she is talking about how to transition a lace tank.  And, after Karen is Carrie from A Lovely Little Wardrobe talking about shorts.


Have a great Monday!

  13. Sweet, sweet friend. I hate that you struggle with fear but appreciate how wise you are to realize the root of that anxiety. Your message is as beautiful as you are. May God bring you comfort and peace. There are times at night that I lie awake wondering why I can't fall asleep and then I realize I am tied in knots. My hands are in fists, my teeth are clenched, my arms and legs are rigid. NO WONDER I am wide awake. Many times just saying the Lord's Prayer helps me to relax and remember Who's got my back! Then I am asleep in minutes.
    Your boot outfits are lovely. Until I start hangin' with all of you fashionistas, I would never have worn brown boots with black. Boy, was I missing out. Thank you for all of the inspiration, internal and external!! XO

  20. Great boots! I totally agree that a great way to transition is adding boots and layers. You're so right that color is a good way too. You can wear lighter items but the color still looks fall.

  22. Those boots are gorgeous! I admire your ability to face fear head on in such an eloquent way. I think as adults we all face fear everyday. I think you are handling it with exceptional grace.
