My Favorite Fall Transition Pieces and Trends

I am slowly easing into this work week.  Isn’t it incredibly hard to get back into the swing of things after a vacation?  Let’s talk about happy thoughts instead, Fall transition pieces on my radar.  Today, I am so excited to announce my collaboration with Shopbop.  Y’all know how much I have talked about my love for them in this post.  I can remember in college combing over their lookbooks for Fashion inspiration.  Now, my love runs even deeper since they have partnered up with Amazon.  Hello two day Prime shipping.  You can have these pieces by Thursday, hello just in time for the weekend.  Plus their customer service is on point.  Oh and free shipping and returns?  Yes m’am.  I could go on and on about why I love online shopping with SHOPBOP.

Fall Transition Pieces

Even though it seems like there is no end in site when it comes to this heat, it hasn’t stopped me from picking up a few great Fall transition pieces.  I cannot wait to start incorporating my leather booties and richer colors and prints.  Here are a few looks that have been trending on my radar and I have currently been stocking up on.


Open toe booties with stacked heels


Open Toe Booties, Fall transition pieces

Cue the angels singing that thicker stacked heels are back.  Klutzy gals like myself are thanking the Shoe Gods.  I seriously wear my Vince grey stacked heels with everything.  To work, with skirts/dresses, skinny jeans and even walking all over Charleston.  They are so comfortable and go with everything.  Grab a pair of these open toe booties, you will find a way to wear them with just about everything.

Distressed Jeans

Distressed Skinnies

Of all shapes and colors however the washes on the denim are definitely changed up from last season.  I am so glad I held onto my favorites flares because they are back in a big way for the Fall.


PlaidsIn all forms but dresses are definitely taking the front seat.  Loving all these tops.


Give Me All the Fringe!


I seriously wear my Rebecca Minkoff cross body all the time.  Obsessed with all these fringe options especially the magenta colors.  I am on the hunt for the perfect fringe skirt and booties.


Leather Accents

Leather AccentsI am all out the faux leather accents.  I just ordered this BB Dakota grey fitted coat and I cannot wait to get it.  Plus, tell you don’t feel insanely fierce in a pair of leather leggings.  I think a leather bucket bag will also be on my wish list as well.


What Fall transition pieces and trends have been on your radar lately?  Are you ready to start incorporating these trends yet or you soaking up the Summer heat for as long as you can?  Tell me the pieces that have caught your attention!

    First of all the new little tweaks you made I love!!! Second of all the stacked heels you wore in charleston were fabulous and clearly comfortable so I need to get myself a pair of these!! I’m loving all the plaid pieces you picked out – super great round up!! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    I am definitely still in summer mode! I don’t even want to think about fall because that means winter is next… I do love the distressed jeans though!

    How about we figure out a way that all of the things you put in this post somehow make their way into my closet, without affecting my bank account? Work your magic, Amanda!! :)

  5. August 11, 2015 / 7:04 AM

    I LOVE Shopbop!! Also, I linked like 80% of the pieces in this post (well everything BB Dakota) in my post today. I’ve been dying over that fringe skirt for weeks!! So excited to hear more about Shopbop on your blog now :)

    I was completely obsessed with those Vince grey booties last year! Maybe this year they will come join my closet! These are all great pieces.

    I was skeptical about hopping on the fringe bandwagon, but I think it’s safe to say that I am digging it now.

  8. August 11, 2015 / 7:49 AM

    Shopbop is my go to! They always have the best pieces! I’m all about those leather pieces!

  9. August 11, 2015 / 8:19 AM

    I reallllyyyy don’t want summer be over but fall fashion is my favorite! I picked up a leather bucket bag at the Anniversary Sale that I can’t wait to break out and now I need a pair of open toed booties – so cute!

    I love all these trends – especially plaid dresses – EXCEPT for flared jeans. Maybe because I know so many people who never stopped wearing them after they were cool in the early 2000’s, but to me, that trend is NOT on point. There hasn’t been enough time passed from the last years that they were en vogue. Nope. Just no. But distressed denim and stacked heels? Heck yes! Looking for maternity stressed denim for this fall for sure!

  13. August 11, 2015 / 9:23 AM

    I am loving the black and white plaid dress! I am with you; fall weather cannot come soon enough!

  14. August 11, 2015 / 9:26 AM

    Fall is my all-time favorite season, fashion wise, but I am not ready to let go of summer!! I pretty much live in booties, plaid and jeans in the fall ;) GREAT options!!

    xo, Jen

    Love the new blog look! Shopbop is incredible, but I have to watch for the sales! Leather accents are my favorite! xo

  16. August 11, 2015 / 9:39 AM

    Loving your picks gurlie! I’m definitely not ready for fall yet, but I’m always ready for leather accents and open toe booties <3

  17. August 11, 2015 / 9:46 AM

    Is there a way that I can keep summer around but still be able to wear some fall clothes? I really wanted to throw on a pair of jeans this morning, but with this heat that isn’t happening anytime soon. I really need to move to San Diego.

  18. August 11, 2015 / 10:11 AM

    I love summer, but I’m also stoked for Fall! I’m loving the stacked heels!

  19. August 11, 2015 / 10:14 AM

    Great picks, lady! Anything plaid these days turns my face into the hearts eyes emoji. Also, that black fringe skirt?! Love.

  20. August 11, 2015 / 10:25 AM

    I cannot stop looking at open toed booties! Great picks!

  21. August 11, 2015 / 10:50 AM

    Plaid dresses are calling my name! I’m loving that Joie one so hard!

  22. August 11, 2015 / 10:58 AM

    I’ve always been a fan of the distressed jeans look :)

  23. August 11, 2015 / 11:53 AM

    That grey leather jacket is amazing! Can’t wait to see the outfit post for that one!

  25. August 11, 2015 / 1:00 PM

    i have never thought plaid was me but i love the dresses that are ‘in’ right now! super fetch.

  26. August 11, 2015 / 3:36 PM

    I LOVE LOVE those flares! And all the plaid for Fall! SO excited to start wearing Fall stuff!

  27. August 11, 2015 / 4:09 PM

    LOVING distressed jeans right now. Just got a pair last week! Plaid is so perfect for fall and sadly I own NONE [embarrassing]. I love that B&W plaid dress though, may have to pull the trigger!

  28. August 11, 2015 / 4:15 PM

    um YAS to fringe and leather! It’s WAY too hot right now in Bama but soon, well maybe October I will be able to start wearing these!

  29. August 11, 2015 / 4:16 PM

    Hooray for Fall! I am so ready for some cooler weather. Those plaids are so cute! I need to add a few to my wardrobe. And I’m loving that stacked heels are in! Much more comfortable for when you have to do a lot of walking.

  30. August 11, 2015 / 5:35 PM

    I saw a pair of fringe shoes at Target this week that I just loved, I really need to go back and get them! I have always been a fan of leather accents. And can we get a hallelujah that flare jeans are starting to make an appearance again. I love skinnies and all…but sometimes I need a break!

  31. August 12, 2015 / 8:39 AM

    I’ve had a pair of ankle wrapped mules, booties, whatever they are called (; for months now and I think I’ve only worn them once. They are so comfy and cute but I find I have a hard time styling them. I’d love to see some inspiration and easy looks for fall.

    Congrats on your collab with shopbop! How ansd exciting and I know how much you love them!

  32. August 12, 2015 / 10:17 AM

    Loving the leather, fringe, and booties trends!!!

  33. August 12, 2015 / 12:40 PM
