Light Sweaters and Peep Toe Booties…

I know I can’t be the only one wishing for a break in the heat. I’m ready to break out my sweaters and boots, but this summer weather is just sticking around as long as it can. I’ve picked up a couple of lightweight sweaters, like this one and they’re helping me to feel like it’s actually fall out there (even though it’s still 80+ degrees around here in the afternoons).

This off-the-shoulder sweater is perfect for this warm fall weather. It’s lightweight and neutral, perfect for “faux fall,” like we’ve got going on right now. I added a wine-colored bag and peep-toe booties to give this look a little bit of seasonal color. Adding a rich color like this one to a light, neutral look is an easy way to give an outfit a little more of an autumn feeling.

But really, why can’t it just get cold? I mean, it IS October now. That means it’s time for pumpkins on the porch, hot coffee, and cozy sweaters. But, of course, living in the south means a slightly longer summer and trying to find the lightest of sweaters to get you through until things cool off a little.
