What to Wear for Fall in the South

I love living in the South.  In fact, I love everything about the South EXCEPT the complete absence of four seasons. Here in Florida we have two seasons; Winter and Summer.  There is no beautifully blooming Spring where the dew kissed flowers slowly begin to show their face.  There’s no gentle, welcoming breeze in the Fall that blows down the crisp and colorful leaves.  Here in Florida, one day your shivering and wearing sweaters, and the next day it’s “swamp ass” central.  This past weekend we woke up to 65 degrees and were so excited; you would have thought we were seeing snow! However, by noon, per usual, it was back to 90 degrees. So what kind of Fall clothing do you wear?

Fall in the South

By the time October comes around I am soooo ready for fluffy tunics and riding boots.  Unfortunately, this is rarely the appropriate attire.  Therefore in order to feel “fallish” while still dressing for the temps I look for breezy fabrics that are predominantly cool in color.  For example, I am obsessed with/musing over this cross back wide-leg jumpsuit.  I bought it for my trip to Charleston for #TBScon, but find that it is also perfect for Fall in Florida.  You can dress it up with fancy heels and jewels, or dress it down with wedges and a jean jacket.  With a nice cardigan I would also consider this work appropriate.  Although you basically have to get completely naked to pee so that doesn’t exactly work for a teacher who has 5 seconds between class to perform. Anywho…what do you all find works best for Fall clothes in the South or warm weather?

Lastly…can we talk about this bag!? Remember the last time I carried it I mentioned how it would be on repeat all Fall/Winter and how perfect it was.  Well take another look! I’ve still got it over my shoulder and am still loving EVERYTHING about it.  Follow the links above to shop the tote as well as every thing else I’m wearing in this post.

Have a great week Lovies!
