Summer to Fall

Have you noticed a trend on social media right now, people putting away their summer closet to bring out their fall one? Why do people feel they can’t use pieces from one season for another For? For me nothing gets put away!!! I absolutely love having my entire wardrobe at my finger tips to get creative with!! It’s bad enough we have to say goodbye to the fab weather, although I do like my cooler seasons, so I refuse to put all my summer vibes away, sometimes they are the best fall layers!

Take this white cotton tiered dress….yes I do wear white after labor day!!! This can be layered for the perfect white pop into fall!!

Adding touches of black and rainbow Metallic polka dots sends us into cooler nights!

Don’t you dare put away your strapless dresses!! They make for the best layers with blouses and belts!

Stripes and polka dots are always a fab vibe!!! Add a head fascinator and your ready for the office or brunch!

Kaftans are normally associated with summer, lounge wear and resort!!! But don’t you dare think they don’t belong in fall!!

Layer it with metallics from head to toe!!! Don’t forget the rainboots for the pumpkin picking!!!

Turn that summer boho skirt turned strapless into a texture tease!!

Over the knee boots, fur feels, denim and lots of beads are a sure win for a glorious vibe!

Denim and gold pops transition so easily!

I hope that this has inspired you to keep your seasons together so that your style can be elevated and inspirational!!

It’s black, it’s white and everything in between!

Basics!….what comes to mind when you think of basics? I truly think of tank tops and leggings, especially for the cooler months ahead! Black, white, grey and a touch of everything else! This blog will be a great way to use a basic in an elevated look! Black and white is anything but boring!

Love adding a comfy dress with a bit of bling! Think of it as a long graphic Tee X 1,000! Fun cute looks that are effortless and feel soft and cozy! Sometimes looks can be simple but yet pulled together!

Grey is a hue, and basic, that I NEED in my wardrobe!! Especially in these pants which never disappoint!  I really loved how this rust color top went with the color pallet! This is a perfect example of everything in between!

A Black and white print can go a long way!

I styled it several different ways for you to see how a skirt, that’s right I said skirt, can be transformed into different looks by wearing it with other pieces !

Add some Capri pants and a belt for a long strapless top look.

Tuck in the skirt to the pants, add a fun matching belt to cinch the waist!

OR wear it as it was meant to be, a skirt and add Hues of color to make the skirt a focal point!

I hope that these black, white and everything in between sparked your creativity to use basics as a point of interest in your everyday look or that you use a piece in a way you never thought of!!

Remember that Fashion is like art!! There is no wrong way to do it!

Back to school vibes!

Whether it’s the color, texture or shape EVERYONE has nostalgic back to school looks!  I can still remember how I loved the smell of my new leather sneakers and all the amazing art supplies that I had begged my mom for only to use them before school started!! So here is a round up of looks to spark your imagination to start your school year right!

Of course rainbows and butterflies come to mind. When I was little I would get fantastic rainbow erasers, pencils and socks! Feeling creative I went to the dollar store and found these great butterflies. Add some super glue and an amazon headband…wha la!!! If I were to wear this all day, reinforcement would be necessary!! (For my creative pics it worked great!) It really is as simple as that to transcend what you love into your wardrobe!!

One color I ALWAYS had to plug into my back to school line up was lavender!! Oh how I loved lavender!! Purple of any color has been Number one since I can remember! It would be the only crayon I would run out of! Seeing that we are getting into fall and winter, pleather or leather looks are great buys!! This was a thrifted NWT (new with tags) Zara dress…SCORE!!!

Comfort, easy and breezy is a Necessity! As we head back to school the heat is still there!! With no A.C. it’s important to feel as cool and comfy as possible! Look for a fun print in a light weight flowing fabric. The headscarf accent always feels like an artist note in any outfit!!

Let’s not forget to show up and show out as we head back ! What better look than a little suit swag!! This thrifted, new with tags, Michael Kors tie popped with the grey hues!! (and of course what color is it….thats right..my fav!)

Keeping with suit vibes and neutrals to pop this Alivia scarf! Absolutely obsessed with the amazing purpose behind their pieces!! Giving back and buying with purpose!  Talk about starting on the year off on the right foot!

So this year dig deep and remember what makes you happy!! Interpret what brings you joy through your looks!!

Linen & Lace

As the summer season is nearing the end I will gravitate to looks with layers!! I love linen and a bit of lace!! Linen gives great shape and form while lace adds texture to an everyday outfit!!! I do love summer, a favorite part of the year, however there’s nothing like fall dressing! So let’s get into the beauty of seasonal shifts and venture into these amazing fabrics!

I love the transition that comes with each season, especially when layering is involved!! I took my Bachelorette party dress, yes a few years old, and layered it with this fantastic up graded tee with dollar store beads and a fringe vest!! Look at your dress as a possible skirt or maybe a top!! When you can see your wardrobe worn in different ways the possibilities are endless.

Talk about a necessity! LBD.. (little black dress)! Most of us have more than one, however I am happy to say this linen has lasted the test of time!! Add pops of color at the waist with belts! Keeping everything a basic black accessory except one special piece creates a show stopper in the look!

Lace is a great detail added to simple pants or a skirt! Pair it with sneakers to be fall ready for pumpkin picking and colorful nature walks on trails uncharted.

These complimentary colors give that perfect fall vibe.

While transferring color pallets from summer to fall, neutrals are KEY to making a no effort look.

Late summer linen pops easily reinvent style norms and celebrate color! The hotter days and cooler nights make this dress a wonderful pairing with a denim jacket.

Thanks to Tina Demel and her wonderful boutique I am Absolutely obsessed with the evil eye! Anything eye related for that matter!!! Go black and white, tie up a color popped t-shirt for day to night!

So what linens and lace can you see sliding into your wardrobe while summer slips away?

Graphics to a T!

Graphic T’s are meant to be worn year round!…Especially in the summer months, super easy to style up or down! Do you have a favorite graphic T in your wardrobe? Nostalgic prints, bright pops and great graphics is what grabs my attention!

Go chic, a staple! “Inspired by” graphics can be easily paired with basics like black to create an interpretation of an LBD ( little black dress)! It also creates a great canvas to add bold popping accessories!
