We know that there is still a decent amount of summer left, but it never hurts to start thinking ahead towards semi-cooler days. I don’t know about you, but now is the time that I start thinking about fall. I am a serious fan of the clothing… added cozy layers, socks, boots, light jackets, maybe a light scarf… there is no reason why you should deny the slight warming effect of these items. I definitely can’t deny the pull that a rad new pair of ankle boots has on me.
That’s why this year is going to be different. I’m getting a head start. It helps that gliks.com is quickly filling up with amazing, new pre-fall fashion essentials for you to choose from. I’ve decided to narrow my search down to 5 items that I can totally incorporate into my existing summer wardrobe for those cooler summer days and nights. I know that these 5 key items will transition perfectly into fall.
A quality pair of ankle boots is something that you can absolutely not live without! I LOVE ankle boots, and normally wear them year round. Ankle books can be worn with shorts and tanks, or with maxi skirts, little dresses. Transition your ankle boot over to fall by pairing them with denim jeans and tights– I like adding socks too. We just started receiving some of our pre-fall ankle boots in and so far I’m a pretty big fan of the: Banjo Ankle Bootie, Missile- 13 Military Boot, and pretty much all of the Roxy Fall 2013 collection that will be hitting gliks.com this week– so don’t forget to watch for them.
I can’t forget to talk about an absolute Back to School Essential for pretty much everyone, Backpacks. Whenever I think of fall, I think of backpacks. Admittedly, my taste has changed now since was 8 and Lisa Frank ruled my world, darn unicorns got me every time. Now, I think along the lines of utility. I’m not in school anymore (sadface), graduating and “growing-up” has –somewhat–stepped in, but I still use a backpack for all of the traveling that I do on the weekends. I can’t go to a music festival or thrift hunt without my trusty backpack. School is just around the corner, so all the more reason to snag a great backpack, right?

Also pictured is a pair of our Flying Monkey Premium Denim Skinny jeans. A few new pair of denim for fall is always a must-have! We have a huge selection of both women’s Silver Jeans Co long denim and LA Idol denim in various leg openings.
A lightweight jacket is another (definite) key item to have for fall– something that you can just throw on when the temperature cools down and not feel weighted down. I’m really digging our selection of vegan friendly leather jackets. The Jack by BB Dakota Bowen Jacket is a favorite of mine. Adding a scarf makes a world of difference to your look, too.
