Transitional Sweaters

Good morning and happy Monday!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I took an out of town friend out to Snoqualmie Falls on Saturday.  Snoqualmie Falls is about a 40 minute drive from downtown Seattle, and is a beautiful 268 foot high waterfall.  It is a gorgeous sight, and one of Washington State's most popular attractions.  Definitely a must-see when visiting our city!

Almost exactly one year ago, I created a post about transitional sweaters as a wardrobe essential for late summer and early fall.  While thinking about this week's posts, the topic came to mind again because of this casual summer evening outfit.  This striped short-sleeved sweater can be worn now with my red shorts, and later on with my red slim ankle chinos when the weather gets cooler.
