It’s definitely still summer here in the Midwest but even with the 80-plus degree temperatures I now find myself gravitating towards the more transitional pieces in my wardrobe – those staples that have the versatility to work in more than one season. A black midi skirt from Public School paired with a knit crop top from A.L.C. and dressed down with Common Projects sneakers adds up to an effortless off-duty style, perfect for the temperate fall days ahead. All I need do when the weather cools down is add a cozy sweater and a great pair of booties and I’m all set.

Who doesn’t love black & white?
I think those sneakers are so fun! I just took my step mom shopping for interesting sneakers, and we got her a Cole Haan pair!!

Such a chic black + white combo, simply gorgeous!
So gorgeous – that skirt is perfection! thanks for linking up, xo
Darling as can be!! Perfect too for when the weather is still warm. You can always throw a cardigan or Jean jacket over it if there’s a chill in the air! You look adorable!
Love this Mary! It is the ideal blend of ladylike and tomboy. Sneakers with a skirt is one of my favorites!
Ooooh lovely, Mary. Quite adoring that play of hard + soft which you do ever so well. I’ve personally been on the hunt for a pair of kicks but thus far, have yet to come across one which speaks to me.
Do come and link-up if you have a second, incidentally? https://sheelagoh.com/2016/09/23/comparison-bites-a-link-up/
