Ok-you got your autumn boots, your scarves, your super trendy hat, your free people thermal sweaters-and of course you’re armed with your pumpkin spice latte. Your fall wreath is up with all its ruddy hues and deep browns. You take one brisk step out the door and BAM-you start sweating. Wait- no you’re melting. Seriously-your makeup is dripping off your face. It’s September?! Its FALL. Why isn’t there a brisk chill in the air?! You desperately want to bust out all your fall paraphernalia- but alas-its 95 degrees and you’re reminded that you reside in the uppermost tier of hades. Hold up sister-I’ve got your guide right here on how to dress like fall when its 95 degrees outside.
1. Keep your Denim Shorts
Yup-wear them. Pair them with cute booties and maybe that trendy hat you’ve been waiting to finally wear. These simple steps will automatically transition your look-but you won’t be profusely sweating as you attempt to wear your thick chunky sweater prematurely. Wear a light, flowy top that is brown, red, rust or another fall color.
2.Fall Florals or Dresses
All my friends know I love me a good floral pattern. Look for florals that are slightly darker-no pastels or light pinks. Red is the color of this season-so wear it. Urban Outfitters has the cutest fall florals. They have some super romantic off the shoulder ones (like what I’m wearing here). I also love this black and white gingam dress I got on sale from Nordstrom this past week. It’s a little thicker material-so you could even wear it into October as the weather finally starts to chill out.
3. Army Green
I got this strapless army green dress from Target. It’s light, breathable-and is in that fall color palette that makes it a perfect transitional piece. Once it gets colder pair it up with your thigh high brown boots and that awesome chunky sweater I know you’re dying to wear!
I know-its so frustrating when your heart is alight with the realization Autumn is here-but the temperature out there is blazing hot. Use some of this these tips to ease into the cooler months while looking comfortable and cute!

Beautiful person. Friends laughing together at some incomprehensible inside joke.
Beautiful place. Azure shores. White sand beaches. Waves crashing.
Delicious food. Colorful watermelon held up to a 10 year old girls’ face. There is laughter in her eyes. You almost feel like you’re in on the joke.
We seem to scroll endlessly on Instagram. Sometimes seeing photos that capture the beauty of this world, the wonder, the incredible expanse that is our world. Other times seeing brokenness. But here in this world-in the tension between the already and not yet: we see glimpses of God. We see Him in our little niece’s tingling laughter as you try out your best British accent. We see it in the sun set as we are held by the one who has captured our heart. We see it in loud, rowdy games of Catch Phrase where your aunts get way too into the game. Everywhere we go we see glimpses into God’s character, His creativity, His ridiculous sense of humor, His compassion, His goodness, and most importantly His love.
Over the past four years, I’ve been working on a community called Radically Radiant where women can come together and be reminded of Jesus. Now I am expanding this community into something more. I am converting it into a space where women (and men!) can come together to see Jesus in the little things. Jesus isn’t just a compartmentalized aspect of our lives-He is everything. He is in everything. He upholds everything by the word of His power. So why shouldn’t we see Him in delicious food? In fashion? In travel? In friendships? In fitness?
Through this expansion, it is my goal to weave Jesus throughout every aspect of life. I want to create a space where there are a wide array of conversations going on-sometimes deeply profound and weighty-other times light hearted and full of whimsy. Our God is a multifaceted God full of life, love, humor, and compassion. Let’s make a place that reflects that.
I want to invite you, friend, to embark on this journey with me! Let’s see all the different ways we can see Jesus in this beautiful world He has created. Yes, it is a broken world. But even in the dark-the light shines and the darkness has not overcome it.
Can’t wait for this journey with you,
