Season Switch: Keep the Color, Change the Style

Today I'm going to share with you my second tip for making the "Season Switch" with your wardrobe
The outfit below on the left was probably my favorite of the summer, but I won't be able to wear it much longer as it begins to cool off.  Many of you probably have the a similar issue.  That's where today's tip comes in.  Keep the color, but change the style.  I have a pair of red jeans I knew would look great with this top and I mentioned on Monday that adding a jean jacket is the perfect addition to most casual outfits.  I'd been playing around with this outfit in my head, then Rita wore something similar and I was sold!  My favorite summer look, now can become a fall look I'll love too!

  2. I love that Grant is still wearing his Spiderman costume. What an awesome score!

    I love this outfit (both seasons). You can never go wrong with red bottoms!

  3. A Great & Useful tip. I have applied your advise to clothing before when switching seasons. I like the Summer Outfit slightly more. =)

  4. Great transition! Love this outfit. My son had the same costume and wore it forever. Adorable.


  5. Love this Ginny. I totally agree about just changing the item and keeping the colour. Unfortunately we have to change everything because the rain has started. It's my Hunter boots today :( I really hope we get some warm Fall weather.

    Don't forget to stop by and link up tomorrow, Thursday, for my weekly Tres-Chic Fashion Thursday Link Up.


  6. This is one of the biggest ways I transition between seasons. If there is a particular outfit I love, I'll find similar pieces in color or pattern that works for the next season. I love the red pants with your leopard shoes!

  8. Grant is too cute in his costume!

    I do the same thing with my clothes...I have cobalt shorts, jeans, and a skirt, haha! I definitely wear the items interchangeably.

  9. OK cutest spiderman ever! I used to have a friend make my daughter's halloween costume in PJ material so she could wear it all year! It worked perfectly for several years! I love red pants with a striped top. Thanks for the great idea! Susan

  10. Adorable! I love this idea. And Grant cracks me up. :)

  11. I loved the summer outfit, but I think I love the fall version even more! Adorable Spiderman in your pic too! ;)

  12. Great tip! I definitely use this method to transition from seasons, so I like having similar tops in a t-shirt version and a sweater version, or similar colored bottoms in a skirt and jeans.

    Grant is adorable in his costume! So fun!

  13. I love fall transition clothes (I have a jean jacket from around 2004 also that I still wear a lot)...totally my favorite time of year...hard to think about fall, though, when it is near 100 degrees in Nebraska this week! :)

  14. I seriously covet that necklace and Spiderman is a doll!

  15. What an absolutely wonderful idea! I love that you can keep the look through the seasons. :-)

  16. I've been loving these tips! Of course that means I need more colored bottoms! :) Your leopard heels look great with this outfit by the way.

  17. This is such a great idea! I've definitely grown to love certain color combinations, so I really like the idea of continuing those colors into fall :)

  18. Love this Ginny! You did a fab job of transitioning into fall. LOVE leopard print and red. Definitely am going to rock it this season! hehe xo

  19. Hi Ginny! Just wanted to stop by and say thank you so much for mentioning me in your post! I'm so glad that you decided to give this look a try and recreate it with pieces you already have in your wardrobe! You are rocking the stripes, red, and leopard! Great idea on showing the summer to fall transition too! Love it Ginny! As for still my heart spiderman! What a cutie!

  20. Everything about this outfit is perfect Ginny! You look fabulous!
    Debbie :)

  21. This is a GREAT idea! I love how you took the exact same colors and just switched out the shorts for pants and added the denim jacket.
    And Grant looks adorable and proud in his new Spiderman costume! :D

  22. Such a cute outfit, love the jean jacket!

  23. The black, white and red is a great combo!

  24. adore the mix of red with leopard print!


  25. This is so cute - love all the elements going on: stripes, leopard, red,'s great! I guess I've never really consciously thought about changing the style but keeping the color from a summer look to a fall look. What a great idea! Now I'll need to think more intentionally about doing this now that it's cooling off a little bit!
