Beautiful You: Transitioning to Fall

I love fall and the cooler weather but when you live in the north you can get sick of it all too quick so I am in no hurry to bust out the big fluffy sweaters quite yet.
I've been looking for some new ways to extend parts of my summer wardrobe into fall and 
I thought I'd share some of my inspiration with all of you.

(these are all on my pinterest board "threads and baubles"...follow me here)

{the great cover up}

I probably have just as much obsession with coats as with shoes.  
Luckily for my pocketbook I don't indulge much :)  But you don't have to have a closet-full of 'em, one or two key pieces can do the trick.  Never underestimate the power of the classics like the trench, blazer, or faux fur.  Coats and jackets can be a great way to extend wearing your tank tops just a little bit longer ;)

{underneath it all}

Try stretching a skirt or dress into the cooler weather by throwing a pair of leggings underneath for added warmth.  I have a dress and a skirt I've tried this with and was pleasantly surprised at how cute it looked.

{up to the neck}

Oh scarves, how I love thee.  Your warmth is undeniable.  I have recently made some of my own scarves (to post at a later date) and been given a few for gifts too.  I'm loving all the different ways I can wear them. I'd still like to expand my collection a bit more though.  Throw a scarf over a T-shirt and voila!

{play it close to the vest}

This is one item that I love but is sadly missing from my closet.  One curious thing I came across when looking for inspirations on vests is that I didn't really see any women in the poofy kind of vests (like #4), just men.  I think they can be used for a great sporty casual look.  What about you?  Yea or nay on this look?

Do you have any tricks to share in stretching out your summer wardrobe? I'd love to hear them!

I hope to do a little thrifting this weekend to support these looks :)  Wish me luck!
