Monopoly Money Monday – Summer to Fall Transition

Summer Transition

Sadly it is the end of August. Soon the trees will be turning colors and the leaves will be falling off here in New England. Trust me, I hate it as much as you probably do if not more. I’m a summer baby and I like my heat. But with a chance of the season a change of wardrobe must happen(more on this on Friday). But since the weather will most likely, hopefully, not change drastically over night, you will need a transition outfit. Therefore I bring you today’s Monopoly Money Monday. Still summer appropriate for those last few warmer temps, yet just enough fall to get by.

What is your summer to fall transition look?

Anchor Sweaters

Anchor Sweaters

It’s no lie that I love a good anchor sweater. I can’t help it. I see one and I want, need, have to have it. Above are three of my favorites that were/are sold at JCrew Factory. Sadly I missed out on the navy with the grey anchor version, but I go have the beige one and my eye is totally on the red anchor. I NEED that one badly! I can’t wear sold red, but I think the red anchor will be okay.  Anyway, when I saw these three items in my Polyvore list I thought it would be fun to style each one a different way knowing they can all be switched out with a few tweaks.

Anchor Outfits

And there you have it. Three different anchor sweaters, three different style ideas. What do you think? How would you style an anchor sweater? Would you buy an anchor sweater?

Monopoly Money Monday Casual Weekend

MMM Casual Weekend

Doing some perusing for Monopoly Money Monday I came across this Goonie’s Sweatshirt and knew I had to pull together a cheap casual weekend look. I loved that movie so much and I may just need to spend my real money on this whole look. After all one of the movies best quotes…”Andi…YOU GOONIE!” Kind of perfect no? 😉

What movie would you wear on a shirt?

West Coast Packing

So if you follow me on Twitter you have heard that I’m going away in July for 5 days to the West Coast with some friends. Since the trip is kind of a whirl wind one where we spend a couple of days in one city, a couple of days in another and one in the last I don’t want to pack too much(fat chance of this happening!). And I also have looked at the weather it is going to vary about 20 degrees in each city we go to which makes packing tough. Looking at what I have in my wardrobe I pulled together some pieces I’m thinking of taking with.

Now I ask of you my faithful ABCers, what am I missing? What items(beside accessories) do I need for a trip to San Fransisco, LA, and Las Vegas? I have about a week to narrow it down and your help is very much needed!
