Transitioning through the bridge season

Hello everyone and thank you for visiting my blog!

The question on many of our minds as 
as we turn to our closets during this transitional time of year
is what to wear in September?
 In many parts of the US, the weather is in that wonderful stage
 When it's not too hot and not too cold,
nearing the end of summer, but not quite autumn
In Maryland, where I live
the temperatures are at that perfect 70 to 80 degree sweet spot that is so fleeting 
There's no need to layer up yet, 
but many of us are slowly starting to shift to deeper colors
and more substantial fabrics as the weather begins to cool down
I'm not ready to change out the closet to my fall wardrobe quite yet
Let the summer linger and take it's time leaving
For now a special top and denim jeans seem the perfect choice

My first outfit in a bold geometric color block blouse
in sunny yellow, white and shades of blue with voluminous 3/4 sleeves
Worn with dark wash flare jeans, giving the outfit a bit of a retro look

My favorite long, skinny ivory scarf
and a tan faux woven box clutch to accessorize 

For jewelry, this outfit seemed to be calling out for silver
 I chose a silver tone cuff that looks like a stack of bangles
and silver tone back to front earrings with a blue-grey faceted stone

Camel tan western style short boots, to finish the look

For my next outfit I chose a special top that spans the seasons well
It's difficult to see in these photos, but this deep red-orange wrap style blouse 
is made of pleated fabric and has gold metallic threads running through it
Worn with straight cut medium wash jeans

For jewelry, I picked out an unusual vintage gold tone fishes statement necklace
with a wrap bracelet and hoop earrings

Carrying a fringed natural suede 70's vintage chain strap bag

Gold-ish metallic perforated stacked heel mules
to complete the outfit  

What I was wearing at the beginning of September in 2019
An olive jumpsuit with wide, cropped legs- 
hanging on to summer, as usual!

Hope everyone has a good week!

The coral top is so pretty on you! And, that geometric top in the first outfit is fun. That is the second geometric piece I've seen today!

That wrap top is beautiful on you! Such a great shape and colour, although I love the first top too! it's nice when the weather starts to change with the seasons and it feels like we have all these new outfit options in our wardrobes!
