Mongram Monday

Hello! I hope everyone had a terrific weekend. Regatta season is still in full swing. We were in Long Beach Island yesterday and Saturday Greye plays tennis. It was a beautiful weekend! Transitioning from summer to fall clothes always possess a stumbling block for me. This is why I'm a huge fan of "the white shirt." It is so versatile. What is your transition piece?

  2. Scarves...they make a summer weight sweater an autumn look...they add panache to anything from a t-shirt to a coat and add that little bit of extra warmth. I especially go for the big cashmere/silk ones sold by LP and T&Co :O)

  3. Agreed! Plain tees and scarves are amazing in the fall! And I love changing my Murfee into a shawl when the sun goes down!

  4. Love scarves and light jackets--I have a great yellow and white striped sweater coat from a few years ago that makes any outfit pop! ;)

  5. I have to agree with the other girls- love scarves year-round! Thinner ones during the summer to dress up a tank or dress, and thicker ones during cooler weather!

  9. Scarves and lightweight cardigans are my go-to transitional items. I really look forward to Fall. It's still in the upper 80s here. Take care.

  12. My transition piece is a lightweight, brown jacket. I'm getting back to tennis, too, I missed last week, and it totally threw me off yesterday.

  13. My transition piece is this gorgeous little fitted Ralph Lauren dark denim jacket with equestrian buckles. I got it several years ago, & every fall I break it out to wear over my most neutrally-colored sleeveless dresses until it gets cooler. It is so flattering in fit, & it's the most sophisticated denim jacket I've ever seen...I remember the fall that I was pregnant, I almost cried when I realized the day had come that it would no longer zip. =)

  14. For me, it's tights, lol. I'm a ballroom dancer, so I'm always in dance clothes. I never get to "really" dress unless I'm on a rare date night with the hubby!

  18. Aren't you precious in that lifeguard chair!

    I don't really have a transition piece. I just struggle for about 2 months, and then it's winter :)

  19. Oh I love your white shirt as a transition piece! I have a few cardigan's from LOFT and J.Crew that I use in the mornings when it's cooler and then can easily take off during the day. May have to go get some of your white shirts though. Fabulous! xoxo

  20. I am SO into white shirts right now; with a sweater tied around shoulders for added drama.
    Best,

  21. Hello SC,

    Thanks for stopping by! My transitionals are scarves and cardigans. I love white shirts. My son says I have enough white shirts for several people! I do not see a problem with that...

  22. Since I lost 30 pounds over the summer, I am so lost when it comes to clothes since nothing fits and my bank account isn't allowing for shopping right now. I'm happy you had a wonderful weekend.
