I say this with great sadness in my heart: the final weekend of summer is upon us! It's a good thing this is a blog and not an in person conversation, otherwise you'd see the tear that fell on my cheek!
Not really.... but this is the unofficial last weekend of summer being that it's Labor Day Weekend, and even though the temps are still piping hot here in Southern California, that will soon change, and our fashion will have to do so accordingly.
Enter our new favorite fall staple, the anorak jacket. This dandy little piece wasn't something I had paid much attention to in previous fashionable years, but I'm seeing it more and more as a transitional must have. The beauty is that it comes in several degrees of warmth. You can grab a single layer one that has a lightweight feel perfect for the cool nights of fall, or grab a full out fur lined one (Vegan if you like) that will keep you toasty-roasty in the winter chill.
The anorak is super versatile with its military green hue. Wear it loose fitted over a sweater dress, a cable sweater and shorts, or like this look, over a classic white T and some skinny jeans.
And for a wonderful pop and contrast to the neutral tones of the jacket, try a vibrant splash of color in your shoes like these delightful fall orange booties!
So armor up your anorak! It's going to be a fun fall!
