Southern Girl Secret: Fall Outfits in Warm Weather

I could give you a jillion reasons why living in Texas is awesome.  However, one of the drawbacks is that we don't really have four seasons.  We get a handful of crisp fall days before Christmas, and it's really frustrating to see all the great outfits on blogs and in magazines when a cuddly sweaters and layers would leave all of us dripping in sweat when it's 75 degrees in November.

Luckily, it's not hard to fake fall style in warmer weather.  Here's how I do it:

fall fashion when it feels like summer

One of the best pieces to wear before it's cool is a long sleeved tee or blouse in a fall color palette without the ubiquitous cardigan or fitted sweater on top.  You still look cute with your jeans and boots, but you won't be dying of heat stroke.

I'm also a big fan of the thin cardigan and tank top combination that looks almost as cozy as a thicker version with some black skinny jeans and rich brown boots (which you can totally pair with black, so long as it looks purposeful!).

Finally, a wrap dress in a seasonal color will look great at work with some heeled boots, but you don't need to tights and a coat until it gets cooler and people start freaking out about it being 50 degrees.

Do any of my fellow southern ladies have some fake fall outfit tips to share?  How do you look seasonal without burning up?
