When September rolls around, I’m always so ready for fall. Except that it’s still scorching hot here until the end of October. But don’t let the weather completely dictate your style – you can start dressing for fall without wearing scarves and coats!

Try this little tip to make your summer shirts feel a little more like fall: Add ankle boots!

This bright orange red top is lightweight and summery, and was perfect with a skirt or shorts during the summer. Add a pair of ankle boots and jeans, and suddenly it feels very fall appropriate.

And as the weather cools even more, add a cardigan over the top to get even more wear out of those summer shirts. It’s a trick that works with any summer top – try it!
