The nights are getting colder but the days still swelter hot. 
How should one dress at such a time 
when piping hot pumpkin spice 
lattes and scarves are everywhere, 
but the temperature doesn't quite match up? 

I'm taking on these tricky transitional times and embracing fall - despite recent warm daytime temperatures - by switching up my go-to piece (a relaxed or skater fit halter-top dress) with different textures, fabrics, and deeper colours. Paired with a dark manicure and booties, the pictured quilted wine dress and black corduroy button-front dress (both with pockets!) feel fall, minus the warmth and coziness. 

Basically, I'm dressing for summer temperatures with a fall sensibility. 
Because even if the weather sometimes still feels like summer, 
who says I can't be falling for fall?
