Sometimes I Shop :: Pre-Fall Accessories

Even though cooler temps are still months away, I'm sure we're all getting the itch to switch seasons. Let's all be clear: August is not fall. Stores have started recognizing this and selling us "pre-fall" and "transition" clothing in the Back to School months, which I can appreciate. Since I'll be wearing shorts until the end of October, I've put together a few accessories I can slap on with them to make it feel like flip flop weather is on the way out.

Shoes I Love

Shoes I'm loving this season: These Stuart Weitzman booties are a mini version of his Highland boots, perfect for leggings. I'm intrigued by the flat mules that have started popping up everywhere - kind of like a sexy loafer. And of course, block heels with a vintage vibe are big for the fall, which we cannot reject, because they're so much easier to walk in over stilettos.

Bags To Buy

Yay bags! I love these three. The Madewell bag is very Chloe inspired, and the Alice + Olivia bag is so unique. And of course...you can't go wrong with a backpack, especially in a deep red.

Other Accessories I Need

You won't catch a blanket scarf on this body until at least December, so I like making a big impact with a little fabric. I love the idea of a "scarf necklace" like this one from Shopbop, and I rely on big statement necklaces to dress up an outfit without making me overheat.
