Casual summer style with Idaho tee, cropped pants, black platform sandals — Cotton Cashmere Cat Hair

Happy Friday the 13th! I realized today that we’re pretty much halfway through September and I got kinda bummed out about it. September is one of my favorite months of the whole year—not just because of my birthday (though that is a fun bonus!), but because the weather is a nice blend of summer and fall. We have gorgeous, warm summer-like days and then rain storms that remind you that fall is indeed on our doorsteps. Everyone is excited for a change in the seasons and there’s just a feeling in the air that I don’t feel in other months.

I tried to channel that in-between feeling with this outfit: a somewhat darker/earthier color palette to usher in fall mixed with short sleeves and sandals as a reminder that it’s still summer. I wore my black blazer (similar) over top for work. I haven’t worn my Idaho tee in a while and had forgotten how soft and comfortable it is! Life is too short to wear scratchy tees (if I made a “30 things I learned before turning 30” list, that would be on it). Comfy tee + comfy pants + comfy sandals = a dream outfit!

Nutmeg latte

Madewell medium Transport tote work outfit — Cotton Cashmere Cat Hair
Summer to fall work outfit with white denim and brown tote — Cotton Cashmere Cat Hair

I’m not actually sure that a nutmeg latte is a real thing, but that’s what I thought of when I put together this outfit that features a blend of summer whites and autumn browns. I’ve been wanting to wear my air ruched blouse and kick crop jeans together, and here is the first iteration! Though, the color of the top is throwing me off a little bit. The stripes are grey up close, but they definitely seem to photograph more blue to me. What color do you see?

I just received my Nisolo ‘Lucia’ sandals in nutmeg, and I love them! They’re my first purchase from Nisolo, and I’m thrilled to support the brand and their commitment to ethical and sustainable production practices. The nutmeg color is gorgeous and goes perfectly with my medium Transport tote (yep, it’s still my go-to tote for work!). I added the belt to really tie it all together. I’m happy I received the sandals in time to wear them before fall really kicks in, but I’m also sad that I won’t get to wear them more before fall kicks in! (Alexa, play Happy and Sad by Kacey Musgraves…) If you’re interested, the sandals are currently on sale, and I took my true size!

I have this thing with blue…if that wasn’t already painfully obvious. ;) Blue in all its shades is my favorite color, and it’s also one of my favorite colors to wear! (It’s the third most popular color in my closet after white and black.) Since I’m a September baby, my birthstone is blue sapphire, and to say I’m obsessed with sapphire is an understatement. It’s by far my favorite gem…and yes, I am definitely biased, haha.

As part of a collaboration I published at the end of July, I ordered myself a pair of gorgeous blue sapphire and gold stud earrings from AUrate. I knew immediately that these simple, eye-catching studs would be a welcome addition to my everyday jewelry collection! They are so beautiful and feel very high quality. I feel like a proper adult with real gemstone jewelry now, just in time for my 30th birthday in a few short weeks. (Yikes, how did that happen?!)

I was feelin’ the blues when putting together the rest of my outfit…save for the sandals, which I’m trying to wear as many days as I can before the weather turns! I’m going to miss them once fall hits.
