Transition to Fall like a Houstonian

I moved to Houston two years ago. Since then, I realized how difficult it can be at times to dress seasonally appropriate. The calendar says it’s one season, but the forecast says another. (It probably says summer.) For instance, as a New Yorker, I am quote accustomed to layering. In addition, fluctuating temperatures and adapting to unpredictable weather is part of city life. Therefore, I’m here to help you tackle this dilemma for once and for all. I’ve put together a list of suggested items and trends below of varying styles and price points. I hope these help you stay current and cool. Let me know what you end up with and don’t forget to post a pic in your best fall look. Tag @ShopWithVal. Enjoy!
