"We're having a heat wave! A tropical heat wave...." anyone else been singing that song in their head the past few weeks? Based on what I've been reading in Blog Land, a lot of us have not been able to wear any of our new fall clothes yet. Bummer. But, on the plus side, I did get to wear a few things that I didn't get a chance to wear this past summer because it was too cold. Ha-ha! Yes, you heard me right. Too cold. August was so cool this year I wore jeans and jackets most of the time. But Mother Nature has a sense of humor, and brought the hottest temperatures of the year at the end of September.
By now, I've switched out my spring/summer closet to fall/winter. I did keep some items like this short black skirt that works well for all seasons, and sleeveless tops that work well under cardigans. The halter top I'm wearing in this post is one of those that I kept. I bought it last year from JCPenney and wore it to my first blogger meet-up HERE.
The top has an interesting print, a keyhole back, and gold clasps on the straps.
For jewelry, I chose a black and gold bracelet and yellow/gold studs. I carried a vintage straw bag.
My skirt I bought years ago at Target. It's probably my favorite skirt that I own and I wear it more than any other skirt too!
IF the temperatures were cooler, this summery outfit could easily transition into a fall one by adding a cardigan, jacket, or scarf. I could also transition out the sandals for booties or tall boots. But since the temps are still in the 90's, I will hold off on the layers, and just wear dark colors in summer clothing.
Someday soon I hope to have some fall outfits to show you! My fashion posts are pictures of what I actually wore, and because of the heat, this is what I wore for a day of shopping.
Have a Great Day! Amy

Oh you lucky American and Canadians ladies with your Indian summer, so tropical. In India it's guaranteed and for you it's a welcome extension to your cooler August. Great that you didn't pack away all your summer goodies. This must feel amazing, wearing cute outfits like today's at the end of September! Hugs, x.ReplyDelete
It is nice, especially since most of our summer was cool. We had a early warm June, then it got cool and stayed cool, until September! LOL!Delete
This outfit is so perfect for the heat wave! Living in Los Angeles, I can definitely understand unpredictable weather. I love looks like this that can be transitioned between warm & cold outfits depending on the season! Also, the color of your top is very flattering on you.ReplyDelete
Thank you for linking up this week!
Thanks Sheree. Yes, I'm sure you struggle with this a lot where you live.Delete
Perfect outfit for a heat wave and I love your purse! Oh yes! I'm singing the same song and loving' it! I haven't even finished wearing my summer clothes yet.ReplyDelete
Thank you! Me too! I never even wore a lot of my summer clothes this year. We had such a late start to the summer, and like I said, August was cool.Delete
Love the pattern on that top, and great tips! Here in Oregon we had cool, rainy weather for three days and then it shot back up to 80. I think Fall is finally coming soon, now that it's October!ReplyDelete
Thanks Kelsey! It finally cooled off here, and hopefully it stays that way now! Though not to cold! I don't want to skip fall and go straight to winter. That often happens to us here in Wisconsin.Delete
It's been super hot here too until today! It was finally in the 60's and I wore a light sweater. You look is great!ReplyDelete
Thanks Julie! Lets hope the heat wave is over so we can wear our fall clothes!Delete
I'm so envious..... brrrrrrr.
You look beautiful.
Thanks Samantha! Yes, it's been hot here for most states. We did cool off for a few days, now were back to warm humidity.Delete
I guess it shouldn't matter when you get summer---ha ha!!ReplyDelete
Thanks for joining in the Ageless Style Link Up
Probably not Jodie, but it really messes up my fashion posts when everyone else has moved on to fall fashion and I'm still showing summer fashion! LOL!Delete
OH my those shoes!So dang cute. and a skirt with pockets is always a wine in my book!ReplyDelete
Thank you! I know, I love skirts or dresses with pockets!Delete
Please send some of that warm weather over to the UK! I love those shoes and your bag is fab!ReplyDelete
Thanks Emma, although the weather is still nice, I'm happy to report our heat wave is over!Delete
