Yesterday marked the unofficial end of summer. Can you believe it? Summer has come and gone. While I’m ready for fall to arrive – cooler temperatures, bonfires + s’mores, football + tailgates, sweaters, and everything pumpkin, I also am not ready to say goodbye to summer. Are you in the same boat? 

With that said, I will slowly be easing into fall style. Highlighting items you can where now and also later, once the temperatures really start to drop. Or if you’re experiencing early fall, like we are here in North Carolina, in the mornings + evenings, these looks will work perfectly for you! I wore the look featured in today’s post during my trip to Fearrington Village last month. We had surprisingly cooler temperatures. Which allowed me to pull out this adorable Draper James sweatshirt. Can we all agree that we sometimes need reminders to be kind? I know I do. I also know the world could use A LOT more kindness. Therefore, I adore this sweatshirt

Since I’m recently obsessed with Hunter boots, I obviously had to find a way to wear them with my sweatshirt. Since it is still warmer out {and was officially summer when we at Fearrington Village} I reached for a sweet gingham skirt. While the skirt I’m wearing in this post is from last summer, I found two similar ones for y’all! This one is a similar silhouette and the cutest floral pattern. While this skirt is under $100 and a little more flirty. Both would look too cute with a cropped sweatshirt and be perfect for now + later. 

Did y’all have a great long weekend? Joshua and I stayed home Friday for a lazy evening. Saturday evening we headed to the lake house and spent some time in the sun Sunday + Monday. Personally, I was beyond happy to just lay in the sun and not do too much. That’s my kind of relaxing! 

Also, did you notice Louella Reese has a new look? I would LOVE to hear what you think! Please comment below and let me know your thoughts!
