Labor Day – White Jeans and Transitional Fall Look


Hello ladies

Happy Labor Day!

Just a bit of wearing white to signify Yes you can! You can wear white on Labor Day and beyond. I love a pair of white jeans with neutral or Fall colors to transition the seasons.


In this situation, with Covid, makes me think of all of the businesses that may not make it. We took a ride “Uptown” to see if some of our favorite places were still in business. It is such a tough time for business owners, I do believe in supporting the businesses we used to frequent.

Shifting to the Fall – we had some Fall-like weather here over the weekend, as we head to a rustic farmhouse vineyard with mom, around an hour and a half north of our house. The doggies went with us as we met some darling little 4 pound long haired Chihuahua on the porch of the winery. I even wore a jacket for the first time as the temps were in the 70s, the sun was out and there was cool mountain air.

My outfit today is a transitional look for Fall, where I want to style my Denizen by Levi, white jeans with this chestnut suede BLANKNYC moto jacket I scored from the Nordies sale 2 years ago. I’ve enjoyed shopping on-line with my mom, as she has been perusing for a few pairs of shoes and Fall tops. Lets face it, Mom gets a bit more excited about clothes buying than my hubby! Anyone else with me?

This chestnut moto jacket is a workhorse each Fall and I have it in a few colors as I loved the fit and color so much. Tip: look and buy during the Nordstrom Sale. Its also great for a layer when there is a chill in the air here in NC. This warm colored moto is not available this year in this color, but BLANKNYC has come our with one in taupe and grey if interested.

So, if you live in a warm climate, like I do, one thing you can do to “bring in the Fall season”, is to dress in Fall colors. It wasn’t quite cold enough to wear this jacket, but perhaps a lightweight blazer over the cami. Wearing white year round is lovely, especially with Winter whites and try and aim for those Fall shades that inspire you at the start of the Season. Keeping the leopard print going with the cami and different leopard patterened pumps from Rockport.

Have you started wearing Fall colors, even in a warm climate? 

Stay Safe,

Jess xx

    I love the jacket Jess! It looks fab with the white jeans and leopard print. We’re experiencing a brief spell of warm weather here, which is lovely, but the changing temperature is certainly keeping me on my toes!

    White jeans with autumn tones are always so good this time of year! I love this outfit, Jess. The mixed animal prints are so good, too. It is quickly becoming fall here as well. Time to get all the fall styles going! Thanks for linking up.

    Ooo such a pretty outfit Jess and how lucky! Fall temps are so nice and definitely something I am looking forward to. Unfortunately, for now, not only is our temperature up in 100s but our sky is super hazy from wildfires nearby. 🙁 I agree with you too. I don’t think a lot of businesses will survive this time of Covid. I keep my fingers crossed that it doesn’t last too much longer but that may be wishful thinking!

    This is exactly what I do with the fall colors. And you’re going to laugh at a post I’ll have coming up at the end of the month. We just took photos for it and we are almost twinning with the color scheme.

    The color of this jacket is perfect–I suppose you knew I’d say that! You are really on top of things with your outfits, I feel like I am just sludge-ing along! We still have hot weather here, too. A new hotel opened across the street and we went and checked it out–it was nice to be among people for a change.

    Love the white denim! Oh how I wish we had fall like weather here – our “feels like” temp was 106 on Saturday. Darn humidity. Any reason to shop excites me, so a change in season – even if our weather doesn’t change – is good for me!
