Whilst some may argue that it’s still summer and it’s too soon to start thinking about Autumn style, i’m actually getting in the mood for some transitional outfits. Maybe it’s because it’s really cooled down in the last couple of weeks or maybe it’s because all the Pre-Fall and Autumn pieces are really starting to trickle through to the stores now and so the energy of the impending autumn season is almost undeniable. So thats why today’s mood board comes from wanting to start on my Pre-Fall style and whilst the weather isn’t feeling like Summer anymore but also isn’t quite yet that of Autumn. This can be a great time of creativity for styling outfits because there’s new inspiration out there to be taken advantage of, whether that’s in the form of designer’s and brands alike Lookbooks and upcoming collections or maybe it’s in the form of your favourite September issue’s editorial?! Or maybe it’s from a blogger’s mood board like mine today, a somewhat virtual scrapbook of collective images that reflect current personal taste that will hopefully extend to yours too.
I love the mix of light and heavy textures this time of year, taking my favourite summer dress/skirt and teaming it with a heavier blazer and enclosed shoes. I like the idea of some chunky sandals with a heavy textured skirt and possibly a favourite knit of mine. Dark Floral dresses in a silky texture to go with some over the knee suede boots. A summer blouse worn with my go-to denim and some newly purchased ankle boots that i’ve told myself i’m going to wear over and over just to justify the purchase of yet another pair of ankle boots. A heavier coat with a mid-length slip dress and sneakers, is there anything better? Nope!
I think you get the idea and I hope you have enjoyed todays Pre-Fall mood board!
Sending you love, light and creative energy,
