Tuesday Shoesday: 5 Pairs to Transition You From Summer to Fall

Today, because I'm shamelessly taking a page from fellow Sacramento blog, Good Day Howard, and because I'm a sucker for rhyming, I'm logging my own "Tuesday Shoesday" entry.

When it comes to the fashion vendiagram (bear with me and pretend such a thing exists), it's ideal for summer and fall shoes to overlap in that little sliver in the middle. With temperature, comfort, and general seasonal appropriateness as factors, it can be a challenge to find shoes that can be worn both now and in chilly November. Well, consider said challenge accepted. Is it premature to douchily exclaim, "Nailed it!"? Nope, I'm gonna say it's not.

1. Madewell's Sandstorm Fringe Boot

Wear them now with: a ditsy floral print dress.
Wear them later with: skinny, pastel-colored cords.

2. Marais USA's Studded T-Bar Flat

Wear them now with: high-waisted shorts and a top with frilly details.
Wear them later with: tights, a leather skirt, and a silk blouse.

3. DV Dolce Vita's Leopard/Pebble Print "Mini" Oxfords 

Wear them now with: a color blocked tunic.
Wear them later with: trousers and a collared chambray shirt.

4. Jeffrey Campbell's Rum Moto Boot

Wear them now with: a sheer, boho maxi dress.
Wear them later with: skinny jeans and an oversized knit.

5. Top Shop's Mini Stud Slippers

Wear now with: a casual skirt and loose tank or a structured romper.
Wear later with: laid back slacks and a blazer.

Do you guys have any go-to transitional shoes you rely on? I'd love to hear your shoe moves!
