Transitioning To Fall Without Melting

The fashion challenge with a Southwest Florida fall is that our weather remains warm sometimes well into December. I still like to give a nod to the new season, though. So I bring out my light-weight pullovers, cardigans and jackets–that I can easily remove and put over my shoulders if I get too warm–and also textured pieces that suggest a heavier weight but actually aren’t, such as light cable knits and tweeds.

I think this Ann Taylor skirt is perfect, because it has an interesting marled texture, has no wool, and is 91 percent cotton. My Charles by Charles David pumps are new, too. They’re unusual in that the base is cork with silver metallic applied over it in a way that you can see exposed cork peeking through here and there. I thought that was so fun. (Silver is a big trend for fall 2016).

If you’re interested in the skirt or pumps, both are currently on sale. There also is a matching gray, marled sleeveless shell.
