Transitional Styling Mini SkirtAh, the end of Summer, the beginning of Autumn.  That time of year that sees us either freeze, or toast to death.  I think we can all agree transitioning our wardrobes over from one season to the next is hard, but totally worth it!  Honestly?  This is my favourite time of year with regard to fashion.  You get to combine and play around with looks from two totally different seasons.  So, if you're still wanting to show some skin, but don't fancy head-to-toe goosebumps, read on...

My best little nugget of advice, would be to think about which of your body parts is the first to get cold.  For me, it's my feet - hello riding boots!  The beauty of transitional styling is being able to create extremes.  In this case, bare arms and legs have been balanced out with knee-high boots and a baker boy hat (a trend I'm still obsessed with).  If you're looking to cover your legs, an option could be pairing a midi skirt or chinos with ankle boots, and opting for a cami on top.  Alternatively, dig out your chunky knit jumpers and balance them out with mini skirts, cropped denim, or layer them over silk slip dresses.

Accessories never fail to make my heart beat that bit faster, and so by the time Autumn is in full swing I'll probably be in cardiac arrest, because this time of year lends itself to accessorising!  I've kept things fairly minimal for this look, including a baker boy hat (at the price of a snack on-the-go), navy blue Valentino bag, and gorgeously dainty hamsa hand necklace from Estella Bartlett - believed to bring luck to its wearer!

What do you love most about transitional styling?  Also, I'd love to hear your thoughts on the lighting for this outfit shoot, as I've been playing around with (and pulling my hair out over) Lightroom lately!
