Summer to Autumn Transitions

Happy Friday my darlings!! I hope you had a wonderful week...all ready for the weekend!?! I know I am :) Today is my oldest daughter's (Saffron) birthday, so I may not be around too much today, but I will catch up with all of your blogs later on & through the weekend :)) I have a big cake to make :))

But for today, I wanted to leave you with a Summer to Fall Transition Mood Board type thing that I was tagged to do by the marvellous Martina of M's Art Impressions (do check her blog, she's an amazing artist). To show what colours to move to, to make your Summer to Autumn wardrobe perfect! Now, I'm not into trends and I don't even change my wardrobe entirely to different shades during seasons, I always wear what I want when I feel like wearing it. I am more of a mood dresser. 

Most people when summer passes, instantly toss out all their amazing colours and go straight to the beige, creams, neutral colours & that's perfectly fine if you love them, but for me I get bored and start to feel claustrophobic really quickly. I need to continue having colours especially in Autumn/Winter seasons as the grey weather dampens my mood greatly. While, I will continue wearing pastels (rebel that I am) I will bring in lots more vibrant and happy colours to balance my wardrobe and also mix in patterns that I love and accent them with various colours when I don't feel like being head to toe in bright colours as an alternative. So, below you will find some favourite examples of what I mean. I hope you enjoy them & do tell me what colours, patterns or items you are transitioning into your wardrobe for the season changes!?! Also, since I was tagged in this, I am letting anyone who wishes to do this have a go too :)

Have a wonderful weekend dolls

My Summer Kind of Look

During the warmer season, I wore a lot of pastels like below, sweet & happy colours. While I will continue to wear them, I will just wear them less as it gets dirty too easy.


My Autumn/Winter Transition Look

While I will, as I said continue to wear pastels, I will bring in deeper, richer shades of pinks & other colours too. Bright and happy. Also if pinks are not your thing, you can do bright shades of Turquoise, Yellows, Reds, Greens, Purples and they will all fit perfectly with blacks, winter whites and neutrals too. The idea is just to add pops of colour if head to toe colour isn't your thing. The main objective is to be yourself and be happy in what you're wearing! Oooh & Glitter...there is always time for glittery pieces too :) 

BOLD Colours






BOLD Patterns
I love pattern, I used to be too timid to wear such bold patterns, but now I just want the loudest patterns ever, haha :) Stripes are happiness & I adore polka dots. Don't be afraid to mix them together, you can wear them in one uniform colour or go crazy and have many colours together, that's the fun in pattern - pretty much anything goes :)

  1. Morning Kizzy! Happy BDay to Saffron!!! Yummy for the cake, sure it will turn out so delicious!:) Btw, the idea of the post is very nice, to be honest Im as you, I tend to not change the colors I wear, Im more mood dresser as well, you think I keep to wear black or grey even in summer as I do love these shades. I know you love pastels and change them with bold hues during this time, your mood board is very inspiring and cool. Have a fab weekend Kizzy and celebrate your daughter!:) Many hugs and kisses! xo

  21. Happy birthday to Saffron! And I prefer color in the fall and neutrals in the summer. IDK why. I mean, I do understand the seasonal aesthetic appeals, but, I just like the contrast, you know?
    Have fun celebrating with your daughter! Take the time, we'll be here!

  29. Happy Birthday to your eldest daughter - any reason to celebrate is good in my book! This is a great post idea and I couldn't agree with you more with regard to working bold colours at this time of year; it's always fun to counteract the weather in some way or another! :)

  43. Happy belated birthday to Saffon!! Hope you had a lovely celebration! And I love when folks wear color and bold patterns during the colder months! ;)

  44. I also don't change the colors in my wardrobe completely just because seasons change. For me it's more about the materials. As long as what I'm wearing keeps me warm it might still have a summery color. I think pastel blue looks really good in the winter! It mixes so well with all that white, sparkly snow :) A late Happy Birthday to Saffron!!! <3 <3 <3
