I find the toughest time to transition my style is from Summer to Fall. Especially being in Las Vegas where one day it’s 110 degrees and the next day it is 60, we literally go from shorts and sandals to leggings and UGGs in a matter of 24 hours. During that window of a late summer early fall heat wave, I still like to adhere to the rules of fashion. I caution wearing my summery duds in late September, but always struggle with how hot it is still outside. I fall victim to Fashion Transition in those awkward weeks. I think I have found a solution though…change up your accessories, create texture with fabrics and create a fall look with warmer weather items until it cools down.
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I need guidance to accomplish these small things. Lately, I have found the hidden benefits of shopping- like stylists and personal shoppers. Don’t worry, you don’t always have to have the big bucks to utilize these services. In fact, some stores even provide them just to make your experience more uplifting, easy and enjoyable. Better yet, there are opportunities to take advantage of that won’t cost you a thing. Take, for example, the Celebration of Accessories happening at Macy’s. Who doesn’t love Macy’s anyway? I can always find something there, and especially in their shoe department. One of the best in Las Vegas is at the Fashion Show were you can spend hours just grazing the tables of the latest styles with many designers and price points to choose from.
If you are not in the Las Vegas area, never fear! There are some amazing events happening at a Macy’s in these fabulous locations where you can get tips on how to keep your wardrobe current and take that Fashion Transition from drab to fab!
Then, enter to win* a fabulous handbag or pair of boots from Carlos by Carlos Santana or a $250 Macy’s Gift Card! If that’s not enough to make you swoon, with any qualifying purchase, receive a special hand-picked gift from select designers. Sounds pretty awesome to me.

I agree that our desert weather makes things interesting when deciding what to wear. I do LOVE Macy’s though and they have the best sales. Their shoe department in The Fashion Show Mall has epic sales!
