Inexpensive Summer Shirt Purchases Suitable for Fall

Although it doesn’t quite feel like it, we are fast approaching the end of the summer, which means that fall fashion everywhere, from the magazines to the stores.  Today’s Looking Back, Looking Forward, then, spotlights a key summer item that’ll be useful during the fall as well—summer camp shirts.

You’ve seen me wear a yellow plaid camp shirt by Old Navy several times this summer (see Looking Back, Looking Forward, Road Trip Style, and Layering Light).  Well, I have plans to sport this shirt throughout the fall.  See how easy this shirt becomes fall-ready in the image below.

Below are close-ups of two Old Navy camp shirts I purchased this summer.  They both retailed for $24.94 each, but I got them for less by combining store promotions with Viggle gift cards.  As seen above (using the yellow top), these shirts will be perfect for layering under sweaters this fall.

Didn’t catch these shirts in Old Navy this summer?  Check out these newer styles available in stores now.

    Hard to believe fall is almost here, but I have a stack of dictionary-thick September fashion mags on my nightstand to prove it! Nice picks, and I like both creative ways you layered your check shirt 🙂
