How to wear fall apparel before fall

It’s every where you look, all the latest fall and winter trends on Facebook, Instagram, and department stores. Heck, you can even start finding Halloween, Thanksgiving AND Christmas decor starting to pop up in the aisles of your favorite stores.

So what do you do when you see these amazing deals on sweaters, boots and jeans? You stock up in fear that they will not be available later on. Which more than likely you’re right.

Now you have all kinds of cute new clothes, but sadly the thermostat still reads 95 degrees. 😩

If you are like me, you have no patience, and want to wear all those cute clothes right away. It’s been that way since we were kids, you know the deal, all that back to school shopping, mom buying you a sweater and pair of jeans one size up in July knowing you’ll fit into them by Christmas, and on that first day of school in mid August you are sporting that sweater and jeans because it’s new!

Things haven’t changed much now that we are adults except for the buying a size up part, well unless maybe you’ve been thinking of that delicious turkey dinner you’ll be having, now that’s thinking ahead!

In this post I’m going to show you a few ways I wear my new Fall apparel when my weather app reads “feels like 104 degrees…”

The best way to wear that super cute sweater is to rock it with a cute pair of distressed shorts. It’s like wearing a pair of jeans with a tank top but flipped, so you won’t look too crazy wearing a sweater in the heat of the outdoors. This is also a good time to rock the booties as well.

We all love a good flannel top for fall, but again it’s way too hot to be wearing flannel, so a super quick and easy way to wear your flannel is as an accessory to your look! Here I paired it with some comfy leggings and a basic white tee.

To the left to the left…Yes I am aware I am looking left in every shot. What can I say? It’s my good side. ;p Now the last look– I’m pretty sure cardigans are the “it” clothing item of the fall season, they are advertised everywhere you look. These are probably the easiest to style as you can wear them over anything, a tank and shorts like I am here or even over a cute summer dress.

 

The Nordstrom Sale-My Top Picks 2017

My favorite store to shop at online is having their biggest sale of the year starting today!! If you couldn’t guess, it’s Nordstrom. I don’t live near a Nordstrom store so I do all my shopping online, which honestly, I love because I can just peruse the website in my PJs while the babe naps, and it’s free shipping and returns! High five ✋🏻 to that!

Like I mentioned, this sale starts today for card holders, but starts on July 21st (my birthday whoop whoop) for everyone else. I did give in and get the Nordstrom card this year so I could check out the deals ASAP!

If you are a “plan ahead” type person this sale is for you. They are marking down brand new Fall apparel! How awesome is that? Just make a list now of what you need for this years Fall wardrobe and you’re all set. I’m going to be on the look out for some new booties and cardigans since one can never have too many of those, and jeans since my size keeps changing being postpartum.

Here are my picks so far.

There are A LOT of great stuff but I’m not going to post every item I think is cute. I’m only showing you want I plan on investing my money on. Also I haven’t found any jeans I like yet but they add new items to the sale each day. I’ll let you know if and when I find a good pair of jeans.

I live in southern Georgia so it probably won’t even get cold till Christmas if I’m lucky. If that’s the case for you as well, the sale also includes great deals on summer apparel too!

I’ll just be sweating my ass off, sporting my Fall boots in sweaters as soon as it’s declared Fall, even if it’s still 90 degrees. Yes, I’m that committed to the best season ever!

Be sure a follow me to see what items I end up snagging at this one of a kind sale!
