How to Transition from Summer to Fall
As the weather transitions from warm to cool and the leaves change from green to hues of orange and brown, there are plenty of ways to celebrate the changing of seasons. From the way your home looks to the clothes you wear, there are various things you can do as you transition from one season to the next. Take a look:
Update your home
We love updating our home décor whenever the seasons change. Why not? It’s as good a reason as any to bring in the “new-new.” You can make simple changes like a sunflower bouquet to adorn your living room or go big in your home with new wallpaper for the season.
Either way, updating your home can give you that “fresh start” for a new phase of the year. From new pillows for your couch to changing out wall décor, there are plenty of ways to upgrade your home for the fall, without spending an arm and a leg.
Upgrade your wardrobe
With the weather changing, it’s time to start thinking about sweaters, leggings, fall dresses and more. How exciting! Why not transition into the new season with a change in your wardrobe? Incorporating fall colors into your closet can be a great way to transition from the bright colors of the summer into the rich hues of fall.
If you have older clothes from the past that you no longer need, consider donating to a local charity for women or men, or if you’d like to make some money, consider selling your items on online consignment stores.
Keep a journal for the new season
As the seasons change, it’s always a good time to keep track of your progress. Maintaining a journal can help you write down goals you have for the new season. It can also help you remember important things during this phase of your life. From the small details of how the crisp weather feels on a specific morning to the objectives you reach, writing it all down can help you appreciate all the good things in life.
Start a fall skincare routine
When the weather changes, so too should your skincare routine. As warm weather transitions into cooler temperatures, you’ll find that your skin may feel drier and the thin moisturizer from the summer may not be cutting it.
Updating your products to include a thicker moisturizer for the fall climate is a wise decision, if you want to keep your skin glowing like if it were summer. However, to ensure your skin isn’t getting clogged when using thicker moisturizer, invest in a quality exfoliating cleanser.
Throw an autumn-themed party
There are plenty of reasons to throw parties and any excuse for one is a valid one. A party to celebrate the arrival of cooler weather is just as valid a reason to invite friends over as any other.
The transitions of seasons bring a feeling of hope and that’s reason enough to enjoy the company of those you love. With the cooler weather, it’s a great time to enjoy some backyard hangs or decorate your patio for a relaxed evening sipping on wine with your friends.

The changing of seasons is always exciting for me. We love summer when it begins, but after a couple of months of hot temperatures, the cool breeze and crisp autumn weather is always welcome. From upgrading your home décor to changing the clothes you wear, there are a couple of ways to celebrate the change from summer to fall in ways that make you feel like you’re starting something new.
