TGIF, friends!! I thought this weekend would never get here. I just got back home from a long job in Dallas and can’t wait to hang out and relax in my own bed this weekend! Before I start my relaxing weekend I wanted to share some of my fun styling tips for sun-kissed style from summer into Fall. These tips are a great way to style some of your favorite pair of denim shorts, booties that can easily work for Fall and slouchy sweaters that are sure to turn heads. For me, a great sun-kissed style look is all about finding a great pair of denim cut offs and pairing it with a comfy sweater.

I found an awesome pair of BlankNYC cutoff shorts and wore them with this slouchy Free People sweater top. These slouchy sweaters are the comfiest thing around, you can even wear them with some distressed jeans once fall weather starts rolling in. I love this particular sweater because it is more like a cotton top that is actually light weight and perfect to wear NOW. It’s breathable and has the off-the-shoulder detailing that is perfect for a fun summer day out. The bralette I’m wearing is also Free People and adds a fun little pop to this outfit. I am such a huge fan of layering with bralettes because it easily adds that extra pop of details to your look and they are surprisingly comfortable! The last thing I added to this outfit is this adorable Frye tote bag and these Frye booties (who doesn’t need ANOTHER pair of booties?) But seriously… These booties are ON SALE so grab them before sizes sell out!

All these pieces make a super cute outfit and they can ALL be found at Zappos! I know I’ve raved about Zappos in plenty of my other blog posts but seriously, they offer FREE shipping for orders and any returns you have. Each of the pieces I am wearing are all great to pair with other outfits, so if you are worried about not being able to wear them a lot since summer is slowly coming to an end don’t worry because they will all transition into Fall, even the shorts!

Need some extra ideas to transition these specific pieces into Fall? I actually bought these peep toe, suede Frye booties to wear during the summer but since they are suede they will easily work into the cooler temps. Maybe not in the 30-40 degree weather but when the weather starts cooling down these would be perfect to throw on with a cozy sweater and shorts or skinny jeans! This Free People sweater is seriously a must have and can easily be worn into Fall and Winter with skinny jeans, OTKs and a cozy scarf! Fall sounds so dreamy right now! In the meantime, these pieces are all great for creating some casual summer outfits before it gets too cool outside.
