Transitional Essentials with Oliver Bilou

I don't know about you guys, but I'm already way too excited for fall. Don't get me wrong, I love summer, but fall is and always will be my favorite season. There's just something about the bright red and orange trees and the big, cozy sweaters that makes me so happy! So any time I can fit a fall inspired outfit in this time of year, I'm all for it! 

Don't worry, I'm not talking full on fall here, we're still wearing wedges and a tank top, but plaid patterns and ripped denim are both such fall staples that they're absolutely perfect when you're dressing for this transitional time period where you're done with the 90 degree heat and craving pumpkin spice lattes but it's still too hot to wear anything more than a light tank top. 

Another way to start transitioning is with your accessories! This time of year, I love a piece that still works with light, bright colors of your summer wardrobe, but will fit right in with the darker more muted fall colors! Transitioning is all about versatility, so this Taylor Bag I received courtesy of Oliver Bilou is the perfect piece to take you from season to season! I think the structure gives it a cute classic look, while also allowing the inside of this little bag to be surprisingly roomy! 

To give you an idea of just how roomy it is, I thought it might be fun to go through it and list everything that was in it at the time of writing this post:

My iPad Mini,

My favorite lipstick (MAC Flat Out Fabulous)

My phone (it's a 7plus so it's definitely not small!)


Dog poop bags

My phone charger

Blotting papers

When do you start thinking about fall transition clothes, and what's your favorite way to start getting your wardrobe geared up for colder weather?
