My Style || Transition Sweater Weather

Transitions are something I feel like I know a thing or two about these days.  I go back and forth between feeling like I’m simultaneously in two places at once– my heart both in LA, a city I called home for a decade and here in Austin, the city that I’ve called home for the other 22 years of my life.  September feels like a similar predicament.  The weather still says summer, but the kids are back to school, the days are slowly getting shorter, and all other signs point to fall.  I went a couple of months after we …
