mint for fall

Even though in Florida it doesn't feel like fall, the fall clothes are flooding in the store, making me want to spend all my money. But before I do (and hopefully it doesn't make that much of a dent), I want to get as much use out of my spring/summer clothes as I can. Here are some tips that can help you stretch those previous season pieces.

Wear those favorite spring colors and patterns and pair them with some fall items. Chunky sweaters and scarfs can help any pieces feel more fall. 

Just because it's no longer the hot seasons doesn't mean florals can't be worn. Pair them with darker, more neutral colors such as burgundy and burnt orange.

Layer, layer, layer. A tank can't be worn by itself, but it can be worn under other items to add another layer without weighing you down.

Hopefully I just saved you some change when heading to those stores to buy some warmer clothing. But I know, I know, sometimes you just can't resist.

Also, I just wanted to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers for my grandpa and my family. God does answer prayers because he gets to come home today! So thankful for every person who was a prayer warrior during this time, I don't know think you know how much I appreciate it, and you.

I love what you did here! I have been trying to figure out what to do with my mint skinnies so I can keep wearing them and this is a great idea!
