A few items to make that transition from summer into fall weather a little less painful! I’m loving all the belt bags, square-toe shoes, and animal print I’m seeing everywhere this season. Layers and texture are key to staying warm and looking polished in crisp temperatures. I selected a variety of versatile pieces that will carry from season to season, plus a few trends to add into the mix this year. You know, quality over quantity!
