As much as I’ll “never let go” of summer, late summer is kinda nice. The transitioning weather allows for a refresh on the looks. Can work in new fall trends, colors and staples, all while still embracing the last bits of summer.
Fall Trend: Bell Sleeves. Late Summer Wear Now: Cropped Sleeve in Light Flowy Fabric.
Statement sleeves are not only a hot summer trend but a cool fall one as well. So what’s better than a blouse that works for both!? This Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse from Avon has a cropped sleeve making it perfect for transitioning weather and looks. Choosing a fall trend in a lightweight fabric flowy fabric allows you more wear year round out of it. Plus, the peep of lace at the top lightens it up too.
Fall Trend: Out Of The Ordinary Baubles. Late Summer Wear Now: Gold Chain Details.
A big trend in fall jewelry is out of the ordinary necklaces. Your standard run of the mill statement necklace is not going to cut it, you need something legit. “How ’bout some gold bracelets” or gold necklace if you will… thick gold chains and a unique pendant drop allow this necklace to stand out from the crowd. Additionally, the bright gold is a perfect late summer metal, but this would look equally as chic worn with a simple black turtleneck or your favorite plaid top come fall. The Avon Pink Hope Ribbon Power Necklace is part of the Breast Cancer Shop For The Greater Goods Shop at my eBoutique. What makes it even more unique than it’s look, is that 20% of the proceeds go to support the Breast Cancer Crusade, which is in style year round!
Fall Color: Jewel Tones. Late Summer Wear Now: Amethyst Blouse.
By wearing brighter jewel tone now, like amethyst, vs a deep tone, like plum, allows you to keep your look more late summer. I love this Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse from Avon for the perfect wear now jewel toned shade.
Fall Staple: Jeans. Late Summer Wear Now: White Jeans.
It was a brisk mid 80’s so I was able to wear pants… like the first time since May. These destructed white jeans from mark. are finally seeing some wear! White jeans are the perfect way to create a late summer look, they brighten up those fall trends and colors. Come later in the season, pair this exact look with your dark denim and boots for a true fall look.
Fall Staple: Suede. Late Summer Wear Now: Pops Of Suede.
Pop in some suede during late summer. I’m wearing a suede fringed sandal from Steve Madden, and switched to my fall bag, a leather tote with suede pieced in. The sandals are from last year but the tote is the new Avon Leather and Suede Whipstitch Tote.
This is just one of those easy outfits for a lot of different occasions. You can tweak it depending on what you got going on and as that true fall weather creeps in, but overall the perfect take on late summer.

And yes, I probably should of ironed my shirt instead of just pulling it out of my suitcase after a week. Life, man, life.
