Mixing Summer & Fall: Mint Julep

July 29, 2016

You know August is near and summer is coming to an end when you start seeing fall clothes and shoes in almost every store. Whether you’re in denial or not, it’s never too early to start shopping for that fall wardrobe! When styling our most recent shoot with Harvard Square boutique Mint Julep, we had one goal in mind–showcasing outfits that can be bought now and worn later. After trying on leather jackets, sweater dresses, and knee high socks, I was ready for the fall weather. It’s hard to accept that your bikini and beach days are almost over once again, but these looks will have you excited to order a pumpkin spiced latte (basic, but I own it) in your new favorite outfit.

P.S Mack in Style readers get 20% off at Mint Julep until August 5th!


Rails Top $154


Citizens of Humanity, Avedon Ultra Skinny $172

Sonya Renee, Green Onyx Necklace $70


Citizens of Humanity, Emmanuelle Petite Slim Boot $190


Flared jeans are appropriate for any season. In the summer, pair with wedges; while in the winter, opt for booties instead. Don’t be afraid to wear denim on denim. The queen herself Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake started this trend back in the early 2000’s… It can be tricky to master it, but it makes for a fabulous casual fall outfit. Pro tip: choose two different shades of denim.


525 America, Sleeveless Tunic Sweater Dress $74




BBDakota Gennesse Dress $110

Serefina Necklace $94


Urban Expressions bag $43


Sweater dresses are perfect for mild early fall days. You can either dress it up with a pair of booties or in this case, with a pair of knee high socks and black heels, but you can also dress it down with a pair of flats or regular boots. Any way you pair it, you’ll look ultra chic and put together! Tori rocked this BB Dakota denim dress, which is perfect for date nights or brunch with your girlfriends in 3/4 seasons.


Olive and Oak maxi $74

Julie Brown evening bag $68

Sonya Renee, gold necklace $74



John & Jenn, Charlotte Dress $228



Before I begin talking about these outfits… Can we all agree that Tori absolutely slayed this dress? Black dresses are appropriate for any occasion and any season. These two black dresses will get you ready for almost any special event coming up this fall!
