It's a New Item in My Wardrobe Kind of Day

Hope you all had a lovely long weekend. I got to celebrate by playing tour guide with some friends in town from NYC, by attending the wedding of my oldest friend, and by shopping the outlets now that my shopping ban ended!

And I bought a cardigan—a camel one—that I've been lusting after for quite some time.

I went a bit monochromatic with this shirt and skirt, and love the way the camel cardigan and colorful striped scarf really added to the look. It was great to wear the layers in different ways as the day changed—our mornings are cold and fall-like, and as it warmed up throughout the day I was able to take off the scarf or sweater to stay the perfect temperature!

Skirt: Nordstrom, Sweater: J. Crew Factory, Tee: LOFT (similar), Scarf: gift

Have you guys started wearing fall colors and layers? Or are you still enjoying summer heat all day long? What's your favorite way to transition??

And since it is Wednesday (my, how it snuck up on me this week!) I'm linking up with my favorites:
