Subtle Shades of Gray

jenna-10-01-081-01Each year I find myself in a delimma- do I like Fall or Spring better? Both seasons offer relief from the extreme temperatures. Fall brings relief from heat of summer and Spring brings relief from the bitter cold of winter. Both seasons beckon you with festivals, picnics, and colorful scenery. I love the flower shower of spring trees just as much as I love the reds and golden leaves of fall. Best of all, both seasons allow you change of your style. The quickest way to do this is with accessories. jenna-10-01-083-01

And just like that Summer fell into Fall.”

1. Ankle Booties

2. Blanket Scarves

3. Ponchos/Kimonons

4. Felt Hats

5. Light weight knits

6. Moto Jackets (Suede & Leather)

These are all chic ways to change your style for Fall. It takes a while for fall temperatures to arrive here in Texas. The days slowly grow cooler and this process seems to take FOREVER! We can easily dress for summer clear into October. Therefore, we Southern ladies have to be creative in our use of accessories to capture the essence of the season.jenna-10-01-159-01Today’s focus is on scarves. A simple and stylish way to “look like fall”, when it doesn’t “feel like fall”, is to add a scarf.  Light weight, colorful, and soft- a blanket scarf is the least expensive way to change of style for both spring and fall. Wear it as a wrap, drape it over your shoulders, tie it as a scarf- there are so many ways to wear a blanket scarf.  They also come in an array of colors (orange, yellow, pinks, blues). This year, the gray & light blue plaid scarf from instantly caught my eye. I love how the blue breaks up the gray. By layering it over my basic gray dress, I was stylish and chic for the school day. The light colors can easily be worn in both in Spring & Fall.  Use my code SassyTeacherChic 20 for a discount. Stay tune for more fall tips thanks for stopping by!

    This look is so pretty! The dress is super flattering and I love that scarf! I’m always glad to see spring arrive, because I’m pretty much over winter by January 10th but fall is my favorite time of year!

    Such a lovely scarf and the perfect transition accessory for the season. Very helpful article, especially for an East Coaster like myself experiencing a warmer than usual start to Fall!

    Love how you styled this blanket scarf! <3 So gorgeous and chic, and the color scheme is wonderfully calm in contrast to the usual fall tones.
