It’s that time of year – time to trade the days by the pool for days hitting the books. As summer comes to a close and we transition into fall, it’s easy to be sad for the end of tank tops and sunglasses for a few months. But before you toss all your summer clothes in the closet, look through them for items you could use as transition pieces as you head back to school!

One staple I’m definitely not willing to give up yet is my Saltwater Sandals! While I may not be wearing them to the beach, the weather’s still warm enough to pair them with some cute autumn-y pieces during August and September. I put together some outfits to inspire me – and you – as we take Saltwaters from summer to fall.

What’s your favorite thing about back-to-school and fall fashion? I love layering simple pieces and snuggling up in a warm sweater when it starts to get chilly. But don’t forget – just because summer’s almost over, doesn’t mean you can’t keep wearing summer pieces! Head over and get a pair of Saltwater Sandals if you don’t have one yet!
