From furs to leather jackets to dark hues to velvet everything, fall has become one of my all-time favorite seasons for fashion! Now that it’s here, it’s finally time for me to start transforming my wardrobe from shorts to suede skirts, sandals to booties and cotton to leather.

Gotta admit – as much as I love fall, it’s a tough season for us Floridians. Around this time of year, the weather is still relatively warm and humid. For us, hayrides become beach rides! Cozy nights by the fire are really, bonfires on the beach! We can’t go apple picking, but we can pick up seashells all year round! You get the point.

So how on earth do Floridians dress for fall?

Believe it or not, some of clothing I wear this time of year become some of my most beloved pieces in my wardrobe. Chunky vests, dark denim, open-toed booties, you name it. Plus, they become items that can easily be worn in the winter with the addition of a coat, turtleneck or a light sweater.

Live in the south too? To help, I’ve partnered up with Marshalls to share some of my favorite fall finds – perfect for Florida!

  • Chunky vest

Chunky vests can be layered over basic tees (like this one from Cloth & Stone), a flannel buttondown or a long sleeve dress. Styled correctly, it can also be layered underneath a trench coat. I love this one because the color reminds me of pumpkin (and who doesn’t love all things pumpkin this time of year) and because the quality is outstanding. I was also surprised to see it was by one of my favorite lines, Blank NYC!

  • Dark denim

A sophisticated pair of dark denim can transform your outfit from laid back to polished! Plus, dark denim is flattering on most body types. I found this designer pair at Marshalls for half the price.

  • Booties

While most people are dreaming of football games, I’m dreaming of booties. From OTK boots to ankle booties to rain boots, give me them all! Between the peep toe and open back, this pair delivers the perfect transition from summer to fall for us Floridians.

  • Burgundy

One of my favorite colors to wear in fall is burgundy. You can wear it by adding one piece into your look, like with this burgundy mini-tote bag. Or, if you’re like me, you wear the color multiple times – tee, tote, lips and nails!
