Summer-Autumn: The Romance

When it comes to transitioning from summer to autumn, there are many items in my wardrobe that I tend to revert to.

As you probably know by now, versatility means everything to me when it comes to outfits. I am one of those people who actually wears everything in their wardrobeand like I've mentioned before, you really needn't a special occasion to bring out those lustrous knits and sparkling heels. Of course, there may be times when you wear certain garments far more than others.

Blazers: Easy Transitioning
But, regarding fashion items that you can continually go back to from season to season, here are a few of my favourites. Blazers and cropped jackets: these pieces are perfect for layering or adding edge to an entire look. I tend to go for a cropped leather shell, and one solid or printed blazer. I am not shy when it comes to wearing colour and prints, and this blazer is a perfect example of a style that is not just for summer.

Many people believe that you have to don a "floral" print only in the spring and summer. Think again! You can expect me to incorporate this vibrant number in my fall wardrobe as well!

If you're not a scarf person at all, not even in the slightest degree, then perhaps it might be because you have not yet mastered the art of versatilty with them! You don't need to be a magician to make fashion magic happen with your outfits. Take a risk and try a dose of creativity! Scarves have more attributes than keeping you warm and comfy in the winter. I have used them as belts, accessorising bags, bracelets, and even making a top or two.

It's probably the only accessory that I actually wear in every season. Between different fabrications, weights, and styles, there's a bevy of options even for the classic accessory wearer.

There you have it, my top two items that are essentials in my wardrobe for all seasons. Have you found your fashion romance with season transitioning yet?

    You look fabulous in those shorts, such killer legs!
    I don't believe in seasonal dressing, I live for summer! x

  18. Jamie "ChatterBlossom"12 August, 2013

    Such a fun blazer to transition with too! I like cardigans myself for that transition.



  19. I've been seeing LOTS of dark florals lately Madison. Dresses, tops, pants and jackets like yours. I love them! They can be worn throughout the year depending on the weight of them and how hot it is outside. HAHAHA I just finished re-working my closet this weekend. Real summery stuff I put away. Have a great week doll.

  20. kiwifashionblog12 August, 2013

    I agree with you! Scarf is a huge part of my autumn/winter dressing staple! I can't wait to wear them :)

  21. Thanks for your lovely words on my last post!

    I love this outfit - the shorts and this blazer are so pretty and work so well together!

    Have a great day,

  22. Veshoevius12 August, 2013

    Just saw this on your pinterest and sooooo glad you are sticking up for florals outside of spring/summer. I love wearing them all year round! I've got the same jacket (and so does my mum!) and I have every intention of wearing it way after the summer has gone. It looks fab with the fuschia shorts!

  23. Wow, that blazer is gorgeous!!!

  24. Adeola Naomi Aderemi13 August, 2013

    Honey you version of crop top is mysteriously sexy.
    I totally agree on the versatility of scarves and blazers.

  25. cute jacket!

  26. Florals are great for autumn and winter as well, they brighten up the grey days! :)


  27. Thank you Madison. Now I know how to wear a crop top. I just need that lace tank. Will check out H&M asap. I don't even want to think about the fall. My favorite items throughout the seasons scarves. I wear them all the time. You look fabulous. Love your floral blazer :D
    Have a wonderful week!

  32. I like your version of the crop top - a classy alternative!

  33. Fantastic post girl! I totally agree and I think conventional rules about climate approrpriate fabrics/prints are so stupid. I think blazers are THE KEY transition piece from summer to autumn, and hey, why not floral? Hell, I say carry that over into winter. Have fun with fashion. Layers like scarves are also perfect, though it's way too early for me to start thinking about Fall. We BARELY had summer, say it isn't so!


  34. WinnipegStyle13 August, 2013

    Such a sweet look and great to transition into fall! The blazer is just amazing! Love the print! I agree I always wear all my clothes and never save them for special occasions! Fashion should be fun everyday!

    Seriously, it is fabulous!

  45. *winks* Exactly! haha, thanks for commenting dear. x

  47. Lovely floral blazer!

  48. Dressed with soul13 August, 2013

    Liebe Madison, Du hast absolut recht, man Blumen auch im Herbst tragen! Mir gefällt Dein Outfit sehr gut, auch Deine Version des Cropped Tops steht Dir super!

    xx from Bavaria/Germany, Rena

  49. Ahnh, Liebe Rena, Vielen Dank! so süß. Ich liebe Jacken und Blumen so mehr die besten. :-) Liebe Grüße, Madison. xx

  50. Blazers are definitely one of my favorites, too! So high five to you for that. :D I really love the blazer that you're wearing here, it's so lovely and I agree that you can wear these colors all through autumn and winter. I actually just purchased a floral blazer very similar to yours and can't wait to wear it!!

    Loving your purple pants, too. They're such a pretty color, and I love how they match your lips!

  51. That is a beautiful floral blazer, and definitely I piece I'd wear summer through fall.

  52. Viktoriya Sener14 August, 2013

    Your floral jacket is amazing!

  53. AlexisGrace14 August, 2013

    I agree with Rena--- flowers in fall absolutely work. Especially set against the blue. As for me, I don't wear florals very often, but I do love to wear a scarf!

  54. Thanks Alexis! Yes, scarves are those great accessories that I feel anyone can wear, as they are incredibly versatile.

  55. Thanks so much for your comment Ali! :) xo

  56. wow you look stunning! love your jacket :)


  57. You are absolutely right about blazers. They can certainly take you from one season to another and are ideal for the first cooler days of autumn which I suppose are not too far away! I'm a huge scarf fan - they can really transform an outfit. Great post!

  58. Janice Lunes15 August, 2013

    Great jacket :D I really like jackets with these kind of prints on them :D

    Also cute wedgies :D

    Just uploaded a new post on my fold-able flats and I would
