What to Wear in the Southwest for Fall: Transition from Summer outfit

10:28 AM



Happy weekend to you!

Today I'm sharing tips on how to transition to fall style when living in the desert.  As you know we moved to Las Vegas in late June, and it's been crazy getting used to the scorching temps!  I'm SO happy it is starting to cool down! Yesterday was the last day of triple digit temperatures for the year, YASSSS!!

Even though a cool down is coming, it will stay warm here through the end of November.  It's not time to pack away summer clothes yet. However you can easily add a fall twist to your summer pieces quite easily.  In the Northwest I was NEVER ready for fall because of the cool rainy days.  Here it seems strange to be wearing summer clothes this time of year, but I wont complain!

I paired distressed jean shorts, a short sleeve top with suede booties and a fall poncho that ties in the middle. The boots and poncho add the perfect amount of fall vibes.  Here in Vegas, we speak  BLING- so a sparkly waist chain belt was added to finish the look.  A suede fedora in a dark color is a great accessory to add as well.

Which pieces are you adding to your closet to transition to fall?

I'm keeping it short today and will be back soon with more travel inspiration & guides. I'm researching ways how to write shorter travel posts; AND  still share valuable tips and information on a destination.  Writing long articles keeps me from posting on a consistent basis.  Hope to figure it out soon so I can post more often.  As always thanks for stopping by, have a lovely fall ya all!!

  12. This is exactly what I do: add booties and a light layer like kimono or a scarf until it is cooler enough for real layer. Cute outfit!

  13. Love this! Being in Florida our weather is pretty similar, and I'm totally ok with it after growing up in the northeast. Summer clothes are staying put for now with the addition of ankle booties <3

  14. I like all the blues in this outfit! the kimono is so pretty with the denim and I like getting my ankle boots out when it's officially autumn too, even if it takes a while for proper cold weather to arrive here in Brisbane as well!

    Thanks for joining the #WeekdayWearLinkup! Hope you have a good weekend ahead of you. Another busy but fun one here :)

  16. Got to love a bit of bling. Sadly in the UK we've gone straight from Summer to Winter overnight. I have spent a few autumns in Vegas, always need something warmer once the sun sets at this time of year. Thanks for linking with #pocolo
