3 Closet Staples For Transitional Weather

This post was created in partnership with Loacker. All opinions are my own.

Whenever the seasons start changing from Summer to Fall, I find myself looking for closet staples that will still allow me to enjoy the freedom and warmth of summer, but will keep me warm when the nights start getting colder. I pulled three of my favorite fall weather staples to show you how I transition my wardrobe – a sleeveless jumpsuit, a leather jacket and suede open-toe slides.

1. Sleeveless Jumpsuit

I love a sleeveless jumpsuit to transition into cooler weather. It still gives the lighthearted summer vibe with no sleeves, but you can easily layer a jacket or sweater on top of it to warm it up. I usually choose one that I can roll up around the ankle/calf and wear with sandals for the warmer days, or boots for the cooler days of Fall.

2. Suede Slides

Open-toe slides in a suede or leather are the perfect transitional shoe. The heavier material makes them perfect for Fall, but the open toe style gives your summer pedicure some shine before freezing temps have you covering up in socks and boots.

3. Leather Jacket

The ultimate Fall Harvest style staple is a leather jacket. It’s perfect for layering, it makes a statement, and you can easily place it over your shoulders or around your waist if the weather gets warm midday.

For this shoot, I decided to explore one of my favorite little neighborhoods in Los Angeles – the Venice canals. If you didn’t know, Italy is one of my absolute favorite countries. I explored the country while studying abroad in college, and I absolutely fell in love with all things Italian. From the pasta to the gelato and sweet delicacies, Italy has my heart.

Since I can’t just hop a flight to Italy whenever I want, I try to recreate the magic of Italy by walking the Venice Canals in LA. I also indulge in one of my favorites – Loacker hazelnut wafers. They’re made in the heart of the Italian Alps, using hazelnuts that are carefully picked during the Fall harvest.

They taste so good, and I don’t feel guilty about indulging because they’re made without the artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives.

To celebrate the first days of Fall, I’m partnering up with @LoackerUSA to give away a Fall Harvest package to one of you! Leave a comment below to enter and I’ll pick a winner at random. Contest ends 9/29/19.
