It’s finally fall but the weather is still warm, so I need to wear just a few layers. A day can go from 60 to 80 this time of year. You can still wear a sleeveless top, only maybe under a leather jacket. I have found my Rachel Rachel Roy peplum top works well with my Adam leather peplum jacket. You need to experiment a bit to get the right proportions when you layer short over long. I’m making the most of these last transitional weather days. Pants are an easy way to get around any need to wear stockings. And now is the time to wear those suede sandals that look too hot in the summer.
