Transitioning into Fall

Fall is here. Well sort of. In Atlanta, it’s still hot and humid and giving me major summer(ish) vibes. But then again, it’s the middle of September so floral dresses and wedges aren’t necessarily appropriate anymore. You know what time it is – summer to fall transition season.

I’m always stuck with what I should be wearing this time of year. Do I dress for the weather or the season or both or neither? It’s confusing and no one can really seem to get on the same page. But good news ATL friends, North Georgia Premium Outlets is our one-stop shop for everything we might need to create the perfect transitional look.

Not only are they the go-to for name brand outlets retailers but with stores like Kate Spade New York, Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5th, Lucky Brand, UGG and more, they literally have something for everyone.

I popped up to North Georgia Premium Outlets a few weeks ago to get some new pieces for my summer-to-fall wardrobe and am already planning another trip with B!

When it comes to putting together the perfect look to adhere to those warm summer(ish) days to those cozy fall evenings, I swear by a few tips.


play with layers. I am all about a blazer when it comes to layering. It’s chic and modern and gives you an alternative for the leather and denim jacket route. Throw over a lightweight blouse or a chiffon dresses and you’re good to go.


I like to take the mullet approach: summer on the bottom, fall on the top. I tend to wear shorts or a mini and then pair the  piece with something a little more approproate for fall like a sweater or long sleeve blouse.


don’t be afraid to hang on to your summer shoes. I am that girl that doesn’t cover her toes in cold weather. I love a sandal all year round and live by the motto “get the most use out of your summer staples while you can.”

    Great post and tips! Living in the south isn’t the best when you want fall weather during the fall season, ours is during the winter lol. I personally dress for the weather and do my own thing so I don’t suffer a heat stroke.
