Happy October everyone! While the Fall spirit seems to be in full swing, California has been experiencing temperatures in the 80 degree range. I want so badly to bundle up in a coat and some boots but the weather (at least right now) is calling for lighter fabrics.

Sheer fabrics have allowed me to embrace a Fall-ish look while staying cool in this warm weather. One of my favorite trends over the summer was the incorporation of slip dresses in casual outfits. I decided to take this trend into Fall by combining a sheer long sleeve top with a black slip dress.

I kept the look all black because I wanted it to be appropriate for dinners and other outings that call for a sophisticated but understated look. I added a pop of color with these pink sandals (shown here in black) and kept the accessories simple with a silver toned geode ring.

This slip-over-sheer combo would also be perfect for cooler nights out in the Fall and Winter. I plan on switching up the dress patterns and textures depending on the occasion. Since the sheer top is pretty versatile, the options are endless when it comes to pairing.

I can’t wait for it to start getting cooler in California but I’m having fun creating warmer transitional looks. Stay tuned for Fall outfits as the temperatures continue to drop. Thanks so much for reading and I look forward to having you back!
