Transition Summer Clothes to Fall

I've been thinking about this post because currently I'm stocking up on some fall layers that I can wear after the baby is born!  I was just telling a friend that I can't wait to fit into regular clothes again.  I do try to wear clothes longer than one season and I do save pieces that I think will maintain a trend or classic style for longer than the current season.  Layering is the key to taking a piece of clothing from one season to the next.  

One of my easiest go to transition styles is to throw a jacket over a summer dress!  It's so easy and I find generally denim jackets are the most versatile.  However, I've collected quite a few jackets over the years and can usually find something other than a jean jacket to wear in order to keep me warm.  I wore this outfit Mother's Day last year and I still love it.  The jacket I think I've had for over 10 years and the dress was something new I bought about a year ago.  You can find the same BCBGeneration dress in different colors here and here.  Some similar jackets are here and here. You can also see my blog past about this entire outfit here.

This dress I wore to my son's Kindergarten moving up ceremony.  It's really a beach cover up but it draped so nicely over my growing belly and the color is so beautiful that I wore it as a dress!  The day was a bit cool out so I easily threw on a denim jacket and peep toe booties!  I've also worn it with sandals and no jacket as the weather got warmer.  I've easily had this GAP denim jacket for over 10 years!  I think I even bought a slightly darker one for my mother who still wears it.  Similar denim jackets are linked here and here.

This sleeveless maxi dress is sooo comfy and easy to wear.  In order to stretch it out to other seasons I layered my go to denim jacket over it like I did the shorter dress above.

I love jump suits...when I can fit into them!  Can't wait to be able to wear them again.  They are just so comfortable which is what makes me want to transition them in cooler weather.  I've worn this spaghetti strapped jumpsuit with sandals and a belt (or no belt) in warmer weather then transitioned to cooler weather with a leather jacket and sandals or cardigan and boots.  I've pretty much covered every season in this jumpsuit!  Similar jumpsuits can be found here (currently on sale) and here (Love this one!).  Similar leather jacket is here and cardigan here (all part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!).

Here are some other layering pieces I'm loving for the fall (and most are on sale!):
