Dressing for Texas

Dressing for warm weather in the fall style ideas

If you are living in warmer climates, today is a fun way to dress the seasonal part without dropping of a heat stroke in 2.25 seconds. I received my October Golden Tote package in the mail last week. And, oh my word...I LOVED it all. Unfortunately, this blouse was the only piece that I could immediately wear. Everything else was, you guessed, heavier items that are far from Texas appropriate. I promise to show you guys what I got as soon as I can...think the cutest infinity scarf, collegiate sweater and tartan hooded top. 

My love for scarves this time of year is undeniable. I want to wear them with everything, but like I said a second ago, the weather isn't cooperating. So, instead of being defeated, I styled this scarf tucked under a belt. It's not restrictive around my neck, but still adds the element of a fall layer. Here is another way I wore a scarf that didn't require wrapping or knotting around my neck. 

By wearing lighter pieces on top, a short sleeve blouse and skirt, I was able to get by with riding boots. Because they are on my feet and not around my body, I can wear them comfortably without getting overheated. It's an easy way to incorporate fall pieces into your outfit without sacrificing comfort.

If you haven't heard of Golden Tote you can go to this post or read below. I will make it quick.

It's an online site where you have the option of choosing between 2 different levels of service. You can select the 2-3 item tote for $49 (a $200 value) or 5-7 item tote for $149 (up to $600 value). If you aren't interested in a tote, you can always shop their boutique for individual items. 

Keep in mind that Golden Tote is NOT a monthly subscription. You can try it out once, if you like it you can come back next month, every other month, once a quarter or even send as a gift to someone else.  

If you want to give Golden Tote a try, you can sign up here. I highly recommend it and hope you all know that I never share companies or products that I don't 100% believe in or have not have tried for myself.

P.S. In case you are worried about receiving an item that doesn't suit your style preference, there is a Golden Tote trading group on Facebook where you can exchange pieces from your tote.

Oh I like that top! The print is awesome. Luckily it's getting cold enough here that you can comfortably wear a scarf in the morning, but the afternoons are still so darn hot. This would be perfect look for those bipolar days!

I'm more than a little jealous right now! It went from 70 and lovely to 30 here. Not time for cute fall stuff, it's all winter-y feeling now. :(

Those boots are perfection. Love the skirt, I got the same one in navy this summer, liking the belt idea with it.

Oooooh Golden Tote sounds like something I would give a try. I like that it's not one of those monthly subscription deals because I'm the WORST at remembering to cancel subscriptions.

Ooh, what a pretty top! And gotta love fall-like outfits like this paired with warm temperatures - best of both worlds!

Nikki said...

Love that top! It is so frustrating wanting to dress like fall, but it is in the 80s! This is a great compromise!

Hooray for Golden Tote!!! You look adorable my friend. I reached for a scarf this morning because it was 50 degrees out and then by the time we got out of gymnastics it was 70+! So much for that idea. Miss you!

I love the outfit! I also like that you combined fall colors to fit into not-so-fall weather. It is still warm in AZ and I love all the fall stuff that is out there but it is too warm for it here.

Sarah Lagen said...

I have this skirt and green, and I love how you styled it! This is a great way and darling outfit!! Thank you for sharing!
