fall dressing

Pumpkin spice lattes, plaid everything, the crunch of crisp fall leaves … wait, what? It’s only August—and 90 degrees out!

This pretty much sums up my current state of mind, absorbed in everything autumn but conflicted because it’s still summer. So here are a couple of outfit ideas to help you transition from summer to fall and get excited for the upcoming season.

Outfit #1


I think this is a pretty good balance of summer and fall. The denim skirt adds an autumnal touch, but it’s still very summery with its A-line cut.


Plus the colors in this top remind me of falling autumn leaves. Just remember to keep cool with lighter fabrics when wearing deep fall colors.

Hello lovers of fashion! My name is Samantha, and I’m going to be blogging for BP. at Nordstrom for the next year! I am so thrilled to take you on this exciting journey – come along for the ride and hold on tight! Which brings me to my next topic of discussion: tights.

Tights are one of my favorite ways to keep warm during fall and winter—they add instant warmth as well as interest to any outfit. Tights are such a fun, easy and unique way to accessorize, and they’re also a great way to transition your summer clothes into the cooler months.

Tights and shorts

Opaque tights: Tights like these can add a fun pop of color or elongate your legs for shorter girls (like me)!


These Frenchi tights in both black and red are great staple pieces to have in your closet.

Patterned tights: This interesting accessory can definitely make a statement. Small or fine patterns draw attention in a very subtle way, while larger patterns give you a bolder look.
