Goodbye Sandals, Hello Booties! - Doused in Pink - a fashion and lifestyle blog

Goodbye Sandals, Hello Booties!

Cooler temperatures mean pumpkin lattes, candy corn, football and comfy sweaters. It's time to say goodbye to sandals and hello to booties!

We recently cleaned out closets around here and with that, I did a closet inventory to determine what I really needed to add to my wardrobe for fall. Next to sweaters, my favorite thing to wear is boots. There are several on my wishlist, but I already have the basics. So, I decided to do a series on fall boots and styling them with a summer piece to transition them into a fall look. 

These wedge booties from Tom's are one of my favorites.  Wedges are the only heel that I like to wear.  They are comfortable and they go with everything - jeans, dresses, skirts and leggings. Tank tops are a summer staple that you can wear year round.  You can easily transition them to fall by adding a sweater or jacket. 













How do you transition your favorite summer pieces to fall?  Let me know in the comments!

Thanks for stopping by and reading today! I hope you will come back and I'd love it if you followed along with me on FacebookBloglovin or Google +.

  3. I coveted these shoes all winter last year! I think I may need to pick them up this season! I have been transitioning dresses this month. I can't seem to put away my summer dresses, so I have been layering them and adding tights. Love the cardigan/kimono! Susan

  7. Yay for booties! I have not gotten mine out yet (we're still in the upper 80s and my boots are in the attic, hah) but I am ready. I think boots just make everything look more sophisticated. I definitely still wear my tank tops in the fall - I am so thankful to not have to give them up!

  17. I can't bring myself to wear booties quite yet. Maybe another 2 weeks or so. I wear a lot of loafers and ballets when the weather starts changing. As soon as my sockless feet start to get cold is when I whip out the booties and boots.

  20. Red is so your color, btw. Makes you look so fresh. Great booties!

  21. I think the thing I loke most about your outfit is your stunning necklace. In a way I'm glad it is bootie season (almost) in Italy), those pedicures are too much work!

  22. Booties feel perfect right about now! Happy Thursday, doll!

  28. Ah! I feel so late to the game with all these comments ahead of mine! LOL! I love your pretty cardigan and especially that bright tank! I agree with you on the wedge heels! Stacked heels work for me too :) They're wayyy more comfortable than pumps but to me, look a little nicer than a flat.

  29. Your red top is perfect for your skin tone plus I love the pattern in your cardigan. For me, I tend to change skirts to trousers / jeans and a jacket. Most of my tops I wear all year round.

  30. You shine in that gorgeous red/coral-ish shirt. The floral shirt is a great addition to complete this playful, youthful look.

  33. That cardigan is so colorful and cheery! Love it! And, I have been wanting a pair of Toms wedges/booties for awhile. I just need to make a trip into Nordstrom, so I can try them on first.

  34. I love your booties and the floral cardigan. I want some black booties and a pair of brown or burgundy ones for Fall. You look great while being relaxed and cool!

  35. I just got a similar pair of booties to yours but mine are Madden Girl, and they're a camel color. Boots are definitely my favorite thing about transitioning into cooler weather and I've accumulated quite a few pairs over the years :)
