10 Transitional Pieces To Wear Now + Later

The biggest question I ask myself in the months of August and September in the South is undoubtedly WHAT am I supposed to be wearing right now? It's hot, but we're technically supposed to be phasing out of summer clothing. So for the next few weeks, I'm really going to be covering the best transitional pieces that will get you past these awkward weather months and will bring you right into cozy fall favorites. 

I'm super excited to tell you that I'm teaming up with Abercrombie & Fitch to help me present the top ten transitional basics in today's post. I recently had the opportunity to get reacquainted with A&F which has gone under some serious rebranding and refocusing of product direction. You guys! I can't believe what I've been missing out on. There are tons of on-trend items and even specialty denim items like One Teaspoon skirts and shorts. I've already picked out a wishlist of jackets and sweaters for once the temps dip here! Don't believe me? Check out my top ten transitional pieces from Abercrombie & Fitch in today's post!

I've rounded up some of my favorite solid color tops that come in a variety of colors that are great options for the upcoming September weather. Even if it's not shown below in your team color, there are multiple color options in many of the featured tops. I'll be adding more to this post as I find them!

Friday Favorites + Timex Giveaway - 8.26

1. Kendra Scott Nail Polish Launches Today!

Ever wish your nails were as pretty as those Kendra Scott jewels on your wrist? Um, yes - the Kendra Scott polish collection launches today! I was lucky to get my hands on a few colors and the top coat in my favorite colors for fall, or should I say metallics? I'm trying out the metallic gold and rose gold polishes as well as the classic red lacquer to go with all my heavy metals this season! 

I mean how pretty are these bottles? 

2. Cute & Quality Clear Bag Options for Football Season

Ever since the NFL rolled over to a clear bag only policy, we've been slowly seeing college stadiums slowly following suit. So the problem now for fashionistas is trying to find a quality clear bag that isn't made of flimsy plastic or chain so thin it will snap on you second gameday. 

Simply Chic Baton Rouge is exclusively carrying these Savvy Root clear handbags that come with both a chain strap and a black leather strap. Swing buy the store or place your order over the phone!
(More gameday fun with this bag and clothing options coming up next week!)

3. Two Hair Sprays Getting Me Through Rainy Days

I have a dramatic love affair with hair spray. I use way too much of it. I love it. I coat my bathroom countertops with it. SO to say I'm a bit of a hair spray aficionado might be an understatement. Two that have been taming my mane during all of this summer rain have been Pantene's Air Spray and Keratin Complex Bold Hold. I don't use them together - I use them for different types of hair styles. 

When I want to go with air dried waves, I use my Pantene Air Spray that helps lock in the moisture and keeps the waves soft. I use this mostly on my every day hair. When I have somewhere special to go, and I'm curling my hair with a wand and really want those curls majorly locked in place - I go with my Keratin Complex. Both smell really good too!

4. Swedish Fish Shoes

Everything that's old is new again - I feel like I'm seeing so many styles from my junior high and high school days coming back this year! Another major flashback happening in my closet right now are clogs and wooden platforms. Swedish Hasbeens are making a major comeback, and this tan pair will be SO cute with flares and suede skirts. I'm also getting kinda crazy with some fringe Dansko clogs next week in an outfit post! You have to check back for that!!

5. Timex Watch Giveaway!

I'm excited to announce another fun giveaway with Timex to get your arm party perfect for fall! I wear my tan Timex and blue striped version ALL of the time, but there are so many new good ones that just hit the site - including this oversized gold watch that I'm drooling over. 

One lucky winner will have their pick of the site just in time for fall bags and lush knits! Just follow the instructions in the Rafflecopter widget below for your chance to win!

The Raw Hem Denim Trend You Need For Fall + How To Get It For Less

Let me explain. My obsession with raw hem denim started about a month ago when I saw this unidentified photo on Pinterest - you know the ones you click that lead you to nowhere and don't tell you where to find the original image. (Insert mad face emoji) It was a photo of a pair of really cool jeans with unfinished hems. They were perfectly frayed and for someone who loves symmetry, I was actually very mesmerized by those asymmetric pant legs and was tempted to butcher a pair of my own pants just to have a pair. Well thankfully I was able to avoid a Pinterest fail because I found basically an exact pair recently from Express!

I can just hear my mom saying "WHY would you spend a lot of money on pants that look destroyed," BUT ha - I didn't spend a lot of money on them. In fact, I got these jeans for less than $50 because Express was running a sale on denim when I ordered them! (aka I also bought two other pairs) 

You guys, I just realized that the sale is STILL going on. These jeans, and all of the other denim styles on Express are marked down 40%, so I am sharing these gray distressed jeans that I'm obsessed with in today's post, but I'm also sharing the other two pairs that I picked up:

Go true to size, I got these in a long because I'm 5'9

TTS + these come in three different lengths!!! Full post coming soon.

TTS + these are already a new favorite to wear with heels!

I'm going to be posting all three of these jean styles on Instagram and in blog posts, but I wanted to give you a heads up since I do not have photos of all versions yet. But trust me, you will not find a better trend jean right now for a better price right now. I'm very very impressed with the quality and fit of all three styles that I ordered. 

See more of this look in today's full post with Express Denim!
