Here's my take at transitioning for fall (I know, I know, there's probably a tad too much red going on - sometimes I can't help myself when getting dressed, though I did lose the brooch through the day). It's still pretty warm here in the SE, so I figured some darker cool weather colors in light warm weather fabrics would be a good mix to help bring in some fall.
