Maxi Skirt

And I’m back… Back from another¬†brief hiatus, due to vacation and starting a new job! So instead of a Friday Fab Five, I’m sharing a new outfit post. Happy Friday ūüôā

One of my favorite spots¬†in Cincinnati is Hyde Park Square, so back when spring was¬†changing over to¬†summer, Carrington and I took full advantage. We¬†grabbed coffee at one of our favorite spots, Awakenings, to fuel up for¬†a mini photo and video shoot. Can’t wait to do it again soon!

How to Dress for Changing Seasons

It’s shaping up to be a warm winter… Thanks, El Ni√Īo! (Now that I actually know what it¬†means when people say that…)

As a tribute to this unseasonable warmth, I’m throwing it back to a late September outfit: when it was supposed to be fall, but felt like summer! Whenever the weather is transitioning, it can be hard to decide what to wear.

Transitioning Seasons Outfit | Closet Full of Cocktails

For the not-too-hot, not-too-cold weather, I stand by two rules:

  1. Layers, layers, layers. If it gets too hot, you can take something off. Too cold? Put something back on! For this outfit I added a light, cotton scarf as my one and only layer.
  2. One long; one short. Pair a tank with pants or a long-sleeve with shorts! It will balance out the outfit without making you overheat (or freeze).
