Transitional Styling with Lyst

Fashion Blogger Lyst Transitional StylingThe next few weeks will most likely see me flip-flop between the joy of squeezing out the last few drops of summer, and the excitement of Autumn fast approaching.  Well, at least for this rainy weekend, my mind is firmly set on the upcoming season and all that it'll bring!  Though I'm not quite ready to start raving about chunky knit jumpers and meringue ghost tartlets; instead with the help of fashion tech company Lyst, I'm looking at ways of gradually transitioning into Autumn by bridging the gap between cropped camisoles and insulated jackets.  I'm settling for somewhere in the middle, surrounded by unsure-about-the-weather dresses and standout boots...

BOOTS (L-R)



It's no surprise I now find myself with an Autumnal wardrobe wishlist the length of my arm, as Lyst is known for partnering with the world's greatest designers and stores to bring customers the 'world of fashion' in one place.  Better yet, the more you use the platform, the more it learns about your shopping preferences - it becomes a personal and unique shopping experience!  Anyway just as I could have predicted, my eyes shot straight to the accessory departments - anyone else become obsessed with finding the 'perfect' boots come Autumn?  Though I favour loud colours throughout spring/summer, I tend to take a step closer to the dark side as the colder months set in, and so finding striking footwear that stands out becomes paramount.  Forget what you've heard, as soon as the temperature drops in England, you have to cover your feet - that is, if you value having all ten toes!

   
DRESSES (L-R)

Jaeger Tuck-Sleeve Belted Dress |  Victoria Beckham Cotton Ruffle Shirt Dress  |  House of Holland Blue Lee Shirt Dress  |  Whistles Miranda Denim Dress


It goes without saying that September is an unpredictable month when it comes to the weather, meaning you could see two people crossing a road with one wearing a quilted feather-down jacket, and the other in a printed summer dress!  There's no telling.  As summer slips away I tend to reach for one of two options: cover up but continue with lightweight materials or show some skin but keep warm in heavier materials (eg. denim).  I find it's a pretty good way of hedging your bets before the new season makes itself obvious - and Lyst can help on this front by alerting you when your fave items go on sale or come back in stock.  Mission accomplished!

With love,

Gabrielle x

  10. That's a really lovely wish list and the one that caught my eyes is the VB Ruffle Dress. Well, I am a little bias as I love everything Victoria Beckham....only wish I could afford her stuff. I am looking forward to Autumn, it's boots season again!

  15. Hi Gabriella! I'm sorry i missed a few past posts from your blog, I'm trying to catch up on my favorite blogs today and that includes yours, of course. :)
    The items you picked are perfect for this transition weather between seasons. The floral boots are gorgeous! And I think a denim dress would be a clever piece to add in your wardrobe for the transition!

  16. Now, those Cambell floral boot are the only thing I can think about, after reading this post....sigh...

  17. yes, Semptember is a pretty unpredictable month. Better to be prepared! Despite the fact that the Summer season last long(er) here, I've already started thinking about Autumn. I think this Autumn will be very interesting in terms of fashion. It is always exciting when a new season arrives, isn't it? However, transitional stying can be quite a challange. Fortunately we have you and your lovely sets to help us with our Autumn shopping as well as provide us with some imagination. I must say all these ankle boots you have selected are gorgeous. I especially like those with the leopard detail. I'm a sucker for animal print...and what to say about those floral booties? Simply divine!!!!!!!!

  21. I'm so sad to see summer passing by but I guess the seasons must change. I love that Jaeger dress with the fabulous back cut out detail and the Sam Edleman boots that have a bit of bohemian/gypsy flair.

  24. Love the collage and good choice of including a lot of blues!! I was already thinking what to wear when September comes, should I go with light long sleeves or cardigans + t shirts?! Navy blue ankle boots is something I've been wanting in my collection, my mom has a pair from Nine West but sadly they don't fit me :P

  30. I also wear darker colors in the autumn, and I'm definitely in need of some new boots for the season! September is the same here in Hungary, and sometimes it's hard to decide how to dress for the weather but your tips are great! Thank you for the inspiration and have a wonderful week!

  32. I tend to wear darker colours with a splash of something bright during fall or winter. A little bit sunshine in a gloomy weather in that sense.

  37. I think I'm in love with almost everything on this list but those Louboutins are to die for and I really like the denim shirt dress too. I'm actually quite looking forward to autumn and winter this year and all the cosiness that goes with it. Summer has been a bit of a wash out anyway and I'm already excited for Christmas! x

  38. Can't believe autumn is so near! Hopefully we will still have some sunny days before we head right into the colder season. Love your picks especially Jaeger's tuck-sleeve belt dress!

  43. I keep going back and forth about whether I'd like fall to come sooner or summer to last a little longer and my answer changes depending on my day. Though fall does provide the chance to start layering. Your wish list is lovely and now has me leaning towards the arrival of fall. I think that Jaeger Tuck-Sleeve Belted Dress is also calling my name ;p

  49. I feel the same as you Gabrielle! I'm both excited for Autumn and trying to enjoy those last few days of Summer too, although I'm hoping it would last longer - it feels like we haven't had too many of those scorching days this year. I LOVE those Christian Louboutin boots (a little bit extravagant taste for me but they're too nice!) and the navy colour palette is a nice transitional shade for this part of the year. You've got me yearning for those shorter days and cooler nights already! - Tasha

  55. I live in Seattle, and even in the summertime here one doesn't know whether to dress for rain or sun. I had to laugh when I read your description of something similar around now in the UK.
    I absolutely LOVE your picks. Although brighter colors brighten my mood when the sun isn't out as much, I also tend toward darker colors - I especially love navy. Thanks for sharing! Hope you have a great week ahead, Gabrielle.
