If felt like it happened all of a sudden. Blistering hot days took a back seat in a flash to crisp winds and flying leaves. Fall has arrived. And with it, all sorts of beautiful clothing. While it might feel like an adjustment to switch fashion gears and settle into dressing differently, I encourage you to "fall" into it. Easy transition pieces will help with the weather shakeup.

This outfit that I'm wearing here beautifully embodies fall. With a rust-colored top, nude clogs, a long sweater coat, and a green felt hat, the season is represented. And since you'll be dressed for the weather, you might as well grab a Pendleton Camp Throw and relax outside before the rain starts. Find all these autumn pieces at Stripe, a beloved boutique in Santa Cruz, Calif.
