Transition

Collegiate Striped Skirt on The Sol Compass

With temperatures in the 80s and 90s this coming week, summer in New England is definitely not over!  Dressing for the heat can be such a challenge with stores and magazines inundating us with fall fashions from every direction.  With the pieces I buy and just cannot wait to wear, I like to match them with summer appropriate pieces like a simple tank to preview the fall fashion, but not sweat to death in the humidity and heat.  This fun blue striped skirt and open-toe booties make for great transition pieces, since the combination of the skirt length and the open toe keep things a bit cooler than their fall/winter counterparts.
