Workin’ It Wednesdays: Summer to Fall Clothes!

It’s Workin’ It Wednesday!

The second Wednesday of every month, Erika and I host a link up where we talk about how we’re workin’ it in certain areas of our life (and then ask you to share your advice/tips/tricks on the subject too).

So far this year, we’ve discussed these topics:

January: Keeping our New Year’s Goals
February: Keeping our marriages strong
March: Balancing work and home life 
April: Spring cleaning
May: Planning/prepping for your summer vacation
July: What you do on your weekends
August: Back to School Traditions & such

and today…


Because…we’re all doing it, so let’s discuss 🙂 .

If you follow me on Pinterest, then you know how I love to pin things by season and occasion…including clothes.  Right now, my Fall & Winter Style Board is on fire because I keep pinning, pinning, pinning things trying to get me inspired on what to wear these September days.  Here in North Texas, our mornings start off nice and cool (in the mid-50s), but by 2:00, it’s 80.  So, I feel the need to dress in layers that look like fall but won’t make me heat up later on.  I also try and buy pieces that layer well year around (like a good denim jacket!), so that my clothes aren’t just “winter” or “spring” but more versatile.   Here are a few things I’ve been wearing lately, and then, I can’t wait to see the link ups and check out what you’ve been wearing.  Here we go…

I paired that 3/4 length fleece top from our Alaskan cruise with my shorts and Converse for some Sunday afternoon errands.  I bought that top in June for our cruise and will be wearing it year around!  It’s fleece, so it’s warmer, but it’s not thick (so, I don’t get hot).  Plus, I thought it looked cute with my shorts from this summer and my old standby Converse.  Annnnnd…of course, I’m wearing one of those camis underneath it because I pretty much wear one  They are the BEST!  The top is still available and comes in 13 different colors!  I bought the soft blue color…but really, I should buy one more because it’s so soft!

Ah!  Me wearing it in Alaska 🙂 .

And then, I’ve told you guys this a million times, but I love wearing scarves that look like fall but don’t feel like fall.  You know, light scarves that have fall colors…but they’re not heavy and warm.  Like these…

I wore this to dinner on Monday night.  My favorite jeans (that I’ve had for years!), a sleeveless black top (works year around!), peep toe booties (those are PERFECT for transitional weather!!), lightweight gold earrings and my plaid scarf…or…

…with my leopard scarf 🙂 .

I ended up wearing it with my leopard scarf, but they both look cute, right?  They’re light but they look like fall 🙂 .

And speaking of scarves…I mean, I feel like I should mention this one again since today’s post is all about what to wear this fall…


Light top with my mustard scarf and I look like fall (but I’m not super hot!).  It looks like mustard is sold out right now, but the scarf also comes in these colors too

And then I showed you these two transitional outfits on Friday.  This is like my daily uniform: comfy jeans, cute top, scarf and flats (or booties)…



Ah!  ‘Tis the season for fall clothes!!  Okay, how do you transition from summer to fall?  I would love to know!  Please comment and share.  Plus, don’t forget, you can follow my Pinterest boards HERE.  Next month, we’re going to talk about how we’re workin’ to make your home cozy.  I even have a Pinterst board for that too!  🙂

Happy Wednesday, friends!  Link up below!

    It’s raining today. .the first drops we’ve seen in months and our beloved waterton national park is burning as we speak, it’s truly heart breaking. So on a rainy day that is very welcomed ( and I hate the rain) I loved this cosy fall post x

  • Abbi September 13, 2017 at 8:54 am

    Every time you post an outfit picture in your closet I’m always so jealous! I have closet envy! You should do a post about your closet remodel sometime!

  • Jenny September 13, 2017 at 9:03 am

    I love changing over to darker nail polishes, and pulling out my booties.

  • Laura @ Laura Likes Design September 13, 2017 at 9:56 am

    That mustard scarf is the perfect touch to make an outfit more fall-like! I feel like that color would go with everything, too!

  • Elyse September 13, 2017 at 10:48 am

    Your fave jeans you mentioned you’ve had for years — are they the toothpick in black?

    • Mix and Match Mama September 13, 2017 at 12:22 pm

      They’re the toothpick in a dark blue denim. The J Crew toothpick jeans are my very favorite!

  • Sarah @ Foxy's Domestic Side September 13, 2017 at 10:54 am

  • Lindsay @ Lindsay's Sweet World September 13, 2017 at 12:48 pm

    Booties, scarves, and cardigans are my go-tos for transitioning to fall!! It’s all about the layering!

  • Jen September 13, 2017 at 8:34 pm

    Now that it’s fall, do you still use the white polish on your toes? Or do you change it for the cooler months?

    • Mix and Match Mama September 14, 2017 at 5:08 am

      I still use white. I just like that on my feet. It looks clean. Is that weird? Ha! Probably.

  • Ashley September 13, 2017 at 10:33 pm

    What size do you wear in the 3/4 length fleece top?

    • Mix and Match Mama September 14, 2017 at 5:07 am


  • Joanna September 13, 2017 at 11:30 pm

    I love your closet! Can you do a blog post touring your closet? We’re building a home and I would love inspiration!

  • Leanne A September 14, 2017 at 8:40 pm

    I see several of the reviews on the 3/4 fleece top say size down. What do you think? I’m typically a small rarely an XS, just not sure what size to order. Thanks, love you blog!
    Leanne A.

    • Mix and Match Mama September 15, 2017 at 4:58 am

      I did not. I found it to be true to size.

  • Lauren September 16, 2017 at 8:33 pm
