What to Wear on a Hot Fall Day

TOP: SheIn embroidered tie top (only $15!) | SKIRT: Madewell denim skirt | SHOES: BP. booties (old, similar HERE) | EARRINGS: Pearl stud earrings | WATCH: Daniel Wellington leather watch | LIPS: NYX butter lipstick in 'Root Beer Float'

The struggle of early fall in Kansas: when I want to wear cute, new, fall clothes but it still feels like mid-summer outside! Thankfully the skirt trend has come back in full force this season because they, especially this denim skirt, have been my go-to when putting together weather appropriate outfits. Not only are skirts super fun and feminine but when paired with booties they also make the cutest transitional look without getting too toasty.

I have found dark denim skirts to be the most versatile, especially when transitioning into fall. I've paired them with sorority t-shirts, cute tops and sweaters, and have even dressed them up with bodysuits for a night out. This one from Madewell is a little pricer but so worth it when it comes to quality, fit and versatility! Although, if you're looking for cheaper alternatives, I have one from Altar'd State that I love as well for half the price, and a lot of my friends have found ones they love from Forever 21 for even cheaper that I'll link below! 

For a transitional look, I paired the skirt with this embroidered crop top from SheIn. It's only $15, and the knot in the front is so cute and on trend! Embroidery is apparently also a favorite of mine this season considering I featured a beautifully embroidered piece yesterday too. Finally, to add a fall touch (and a little height!) I finished off the look with a basic pair of brown leather booties. The pair I'm wearing is a couple year's old, but here's a super similar pair

I hope everyone has been having a good week so far! Ironically, it was super chilly and rainy today, but I'm super excited for tonight because I'm becoming a GRANDMA! My sorority has mom/dot (it's just like big/little) reveal tonight, and I could not be more excited to welcome my g-dottie to the fam! I'll probably post a picture on my Instagram story tonight after reveal, so be sure to be on the lookout for that! 

Let me know in the comments below if you have anything exciting going on this week too!
