I'm creating my capsule wardrobe — 3 summer pieces I'm keeping for fall

I wore a lot of Reformation this summer. Here's how I'm styling my favourite pieces for fall.

Undoubtedly, one of the brands I wear the most is Reformation. The cool-girl label has laid claim to my fall wish list, with its cashmere sweaters and Canada Goose collab taking first and second place. That said, we still have a month or more left of summer-ish weather, so it's not time to pack away your warm-weather wardrobe just yet.

To squeeze more life out of my summer attire, I took three of my most-worn Reformation pieces and styled them for fall. From a breezy linen mini dress to tailored shorts, here's how I'm styling three summer-to-fall transitional pieces.

What I Wore: Reformation Jessi Linen Dress

While I live in a glorified studio apartment with no husband and no children, I feel like the rich Hampton mom I was always destined to become in this linen mini dress. The 100 per cent linen dress is available in four colours: white, pale green, navy, and a cute '60s-inspired print.

$188 CAD/$128 USD at Reformation

My shoes: Birkenstock Arizona Big Buckle Sandals

When I tell you I have worn these Big Buckle Birkenstock sandals almost every single day this summer, I am not exaggerating in the least (trust me, I have the tan lines to prove it).

$230 CAD/$170 USD at Shopbop

My bag: Cult Gaia Gaia's Ark Bamboo Bag

I have a Black Friday sale to thank for my Cult Gaia bag; however, if you're willing to pay full price, you can buy the bamboo bag from Farfetch or find my black version on The Real Real.

My sunglasses: Le Specs Air Heart 51mm Cat Eye Sunglasses

I bought Meghan Markle's "chic yet dramatic" sunglasses before Nordstrom Canada went under (RIP) and for what it's worth, they are both royal and editor-approved.

$81 CAD/$60 USD at Net-A-Porter

My sunglasses chain: Komono Small Pearl Glasses Chain

Admittedly, this isn't my actual sunglasses chain (I bought mine at a boutique in Paris — fancy, I know), however, it's very similar and very cute!

Shoes: Monochrome Western Boots

I am very much here for this fall's cowboy boot trend. Another pair I love? These colourful Jeffrey Campbell Dagget Western Boots from Free People (specifically the pink, if you're in a giving mood).

Bag: Melie Bianco Brigitte Large Satchel

This jumbo shoulder bag is crafted from faux leather and would play well with the white linen mini (and the rest of your fall wardrobe).

Jacket: Mango Denim jacket with Belt

What I Wore: Reformation Tagliatelle Linen Dress

Reformation's Tagliatelle Linen Dress made headlines this summer as one of Jennifer Lopez's go-to's, and having worn the linen midi several times over the past month, I understand the hype. Every time I wear this figure-flattering midi, I receive at least one compliment from a stranger — it's that good.

My shoes: Birkenstock Arizona Big Buckle Sandals (again)

My bag: One of the 1,000 random tote bags stuffed in my closet.

What I Wore: Reformation Mason Linen Short

The rich and famous and Reformation go together like a Hollywood starlet and a British prince. Joining Jennifer Lopez and Sarah Jessica Parker in their love of the brand is Meghan Markle, the richest (maybe) and most famous (definitely) of them all. Duchess Meghan was spotted wearing Reformation's Mason Linen Shorts earlier this summer and being the royal stan that I am, I had to pick up a pair for myself too.

My shoes: Birkenstock Arizona Big Buckle Sandals (I own other shoes, I swear)
