Fashion Transition: July-->August-->Fall

Are you mourning the last day of July? I am. The weather seems to be as well, as the impending thunder doesn't seem like a good sign of a sunny afternoon here on the coast (and it also means my maxi dress was a poor choice for work today—great).
Normally, August brings a little new excitement into my life: a new school year, a new move, or a new town. But, if you've been reading here for a while, you know that for the first time in my life I am settled, and not going anywhere soon. Which means that this August, essentially, just brings the heat. Literally.
So in an effort to perk my seasonal attitude up a bit and make amends with August, I've been thinking about this transition to fall—a strange concept for this summer baby to look forward to the fall months. More specifically, fall shopping, when more than ever I'll be searching for steals and deals to work within my young professional/fashionista's budget. I've got quite the crush on the below combinations, which incorporate pieces I already have with a few updates for an August-to-fall transition look, no matter the occasion:

For cocktails with the crew: easy, breezy, cool style.

Brunch with the girls: ladylike style gets a funky twist.

Date with the beau: there's nothing like looking like a lady, red lips and all.
Skirt, earrings, booties.
Enjoy your last July day!
