Summer in the City

Los Angeles, CA

During the whacky-weather month of September I'm always a bit confused about how exactly to dress. It's warmer than it's been all year but everywhere I turn I see plush fall styles. And while I'd love to add on a layer like the magazines instruct, it just simply too hot. It was 100 degrees in LA yesterday!

So what should you wear during this transitional time? I say stick to basic, cross-seasonal pieces. These floral shorts are exactly that. I snagged them a couple of weeks ago (for $15) and knew that they would be great for both summer and fall.  Perfect for the office or an afternoon of shopping (which is where I wore them here) you can easily swap out my summery top for a sweater when things begin to cool off.
