I have been obsessed in the past few weeks with the transition to Fall … maybe because of delayed gratification. You know, you want to break out your [fill in the blank with your latest cool purchase for Fall 2010] but it’s still so darn hot, you really just can‘t.
Fortunately, sometimes just reading about getting ready for a new season can provide that little bit of immediate gratification. This blog post fit the bill for me: “20 Ways To Transition Your Style into Autumn,” from the blog You Look Fab.
What do you do to get a little more mileage from your warm weather favorites while awaiting a drop in temperature? Or do you just pack ‘em all away and get a jump on your Fall favorites?
