Summer to Fall, Goodwill has it All!!

Hello my fellow Goodwill shoppers! I hope you have had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to a beautiful fall in Kansas! One of the wonderful things about our state is that we get such a varied display of temperatures and seasons throughout the year. However, that can present a problem for your daily wardrobe – especially when you’re in that month-ish long transition between seasons. So this month, I took my beautiful friend Tara shopping at the Andover Goodwill and we found some super-cute summer-into-fall transition outfits that I thought you all might like.

Checkered Top With Shorts

Our first look featured an easy-going cotton checkered long sleeve top paired with a cute set of shorts. If the temperatures are warmer, the shorts will keep you cool, and if things cool off, just roll the sleeves down on the blouse and keep warm.

Floral Dress

Our next look is a summer dress with some wonderful autumn colors in a floral pattern. We photographed this dress as more of a summer look – but for a fall evening out, you could easily pair it with a cardigan or jacket for a warmer fall look.

Skinnies With Cardigan

Finally, an easy casual look that’s great for warm or cool weather. We paired together a cute set of skinny jeans with a simple white t-shirt and a cozy brown cardigan over it. When the sun is out and shining bright, get rid of the cardigan and go with just the t-shirt and jeans, and when it all cools down, just slip your cardigan back on for a quintessential fall look.

The great thing about all these looks is that you can afford to try them all at your local Goodwill! If you have never tried shopping at Goodwill, trust me, you can find some great additions to your wardrobe for a fraction of the cost! Just last week I found a dress for $5.99 with the tags still on it, and after a little research online, found the original dress listed for almost $300.00!! So PLEASE! If you love to switch out your clothes for the season, or just want to freshen up your look and try something new, shop Goodwill first! I promise you will find some amazing things!
