That Perfect Time Between Heatstroke and Chicago Winter

Yes dear friends, we are entering the most perfect weather for fashion: transition style between summer and fall! Any of my girls in cold climates know what I’m talking about – you get so pumped to wear adorable fall clothes, but you have a teeny window to do so before arctic blasts send you running for your parkas.

While there are moments worth toughing out a little frostbite for the sake of a killer dress, they are few and far between (and usually require liquid courage around here). Take advantage of transition style by breaking out your just-right pieces – here’s a few of mine:
