Summer to Fall Transition

Hey everyone! I hope you have all had a fabulous weekend! I just got back from my last wedding of the season, so now is the perfect time to get started with real blog posts! Who else is stoked that Wednesday is the first day of Fall? I know I am! It's getting to that time of the year when I start craving cooler weather. I can't be the only one who's sick if wearing shorts and tank tops, right? But, it doesn't quite feel like Autumn yet. I step outside in the morning and think Hmmm, i better put on a sweater. But by the time noon hits, it's 85 degrees. So what's a good solution to this madness? You guessed it! Time to break out your cardigans and light sweaters! Yay! Flannels are also a good option. Here are a few good tips when dealing with confused weather.

1. Make sure your warm pieces are light enough to carry with you. Throw it on when you leave in the morning, then when it starts to warm up, put it in your bag or tie it around your waist.

2. Dress for the hot weather (obvi based on what your local weather says).

3. This is the best time to wear dresses with boots!

Below are a few of my favorite Summer/Fall transition pieces.

Thank you for stopping by!

Welcome, everyone! I am so excited for this opportunity to share some of the aspects of my life I take pride in! I have been wanting to start my own lifestyle blog for quite some time now and with a few failed attempts and lots of dragging my feet, here we finally are. My name is Ella and I am from the beautiful city of Denver, Colorado. Being a full time mom, student and working two jobs has kept me busy, but hasn’t kept me away from a few of my passions (other than doting on my child and working my butt off, of course), fashion, beauty, and cooking. 

This blog is all about simplicity, as you can tell the title of my blog, named after my two favorite colors. Too much pizzaz can be distracting but elegance is something to strive for. 

Keep your eyes open every Friday for a new blog post! Thanks for reading and I cannot wait to embark on this journey with all of you!
