Fall is on its way. Stores have switched seasons and even though the weather is still warm, now is the best time to start stocking up on the essentials for fall. When shopping for the upcoming season, I always try to buy things that can be worn now and later. We talked about this here and I mentioned it on The Daily Lookbook as well; transitional pieces are key this time of year. In my opinion, the ultimate transitional piece is a beautiful taupe colored bootie. I have worn my pair through every season, pairing them with practically everything in my closet. These booties will take you from summer to fall seamlessly. No matter what your budget is this season, there are some great options (above).
