Fall is still over a month away, yet it feels like people have already begun the countdown in anticipation for crisp days, cozy layers and pumpkin spice lattes. Personally, I’ve always preferred summer to fall, so I find the change in season to be bittersweet. I’m never quite ready to retire my summer wardrobe when fall creeps up, and this year is no different. I plan to relish in denim cutoffs and summer dresses so long as the weather permits.
In order to do so without looking out of place, incorporating transitional pieces is key. In other words, you can still wear a dress, but instead of bright shades and colorful florals, opt for darker tones and prints. And instead of strappy sandals, swap in some close toed shoes, like a classic pair of ankle booties. It goes without saying that boots are ubiquitous with fall fashion, but scoring a pair that’s durable, affordable, and comfortable, is not. These Warwick Booties from Restricted Shoes fit the bill in every way (quite literally at just $74), and add just the right amount of height with a thick heel that provides comfortable support for all day wear. If you already own a pair of black booties, the Whiskey and Taupe shades are just as beautiful, and will blend in beautifully with the arrival of fall’s earthy tones. I can’t recommend them enough, and you can score a pair (or two!) for 25% off when you enter this coupon code at checkout: ADORNED25
