Outfit // Somewhere In Between

With Labor Day behind us, it seems that summer is now sadly over... Though we are quickly approaching fall, the weather here in California definitely isn't cooling down yet! So when it comes to wardrobe, I am somewhere in the middle of seasons. Most days I throw on a pair of shorts and a tank top and slide on sandals on my way out the door before I head to school, but I am kind of itching to break out those jeans and some new items I scored on sale for fall. For now, I will not complain about our warm temps here though since it means I will still be able to get in some more pool days :)
Over the weekend, we went to dinner at one of my very favorite restaurants, Picco Pizzeria, over the Golden Gate Bridge and into Marin County. It is always a beautiful drive through the city and over the bridge (well, except when there is tons of traffic...), and on this day we were blessed with sunshine and clear skies. I hadn't been in Marin in quite a while, so it was nice take a little drive and head into a different part of the Bay Area. While we waited for our table, we walked around downtown Larkspur and were able to snap some photos of my outfit.
The evening was cool enough to be able to pull out my current favorite pair of jeans and my go-to booties. I also wore a white flow tank top that I got earlier in the summer and didn't even need a sweater. I really love this tank top and how feminine it is, but I don't wear it too often since I am a bit afraid I might ruin it! These booties have been seen here on the blog countless times, but I just love them so much! I would really like to find a great pair of brown leather (real or faux) booties and have looked so many places with no luck. Let me know if you have seen a pair I might like!edit-7705
Earlier this summer I discovered an accessory store called Charming Charlie. As soon as I walked in, I was in love, purely by the fact that the store was organized by color! That definitely made my heart sing :) It was seriously great, especially because you could find each style in any color! I also found that all of the jewelry was really pretty reasonably priced, which is great because I am on a budget and simply don't believe in spending much on that kind of stuff, at this point in my life anyway. On my first visit, I picked up a few pieces, including this orange flower necklace that came in a set with matching earrings. I have been wearing this necklace often this summer since I just love the pop of color it gives my looks!edit-7640 edit-7652
I must say, it was kind of nice to get a taste of fall wardrobe on this evening! It had been nearly a month since I had worn jeans and I hadn't pulled out my Madewell tote in quite a while! I think it will forever be my favorite and it instantly reminds me of fall fashion with its warm brown tones.edit-7665 edit-7791 edit-7584
This outfit is pretty simple, just the way I like it, and is a great for me in this transitional weather. Although, I don't think the heat is going anywhere anytime soon, since it was 90 degrees yesterday!

These photos were pretty fun to shoot and I really enjoyed doing outfit photos for the first time in so long. My friend and roommate, Laura, was standing off to the side while Dai was behind the camera and she made me laugh a bunch, so I think these photos turned out with more silly faces from me than usual, but I love it :)

At a weekend sale, I scored a few new items for fall and I can't wait to get back into the groove of sharing outfit posts! It has been too long, friends!

Are you ready for fall and fall fashion? Or are you holding on to summer for as long as possible? What are your go-to transitional pieces?
