Mini Skirts For Fall

Fall is finally here! It's the return of jackets, scarves, beanies and me. It has been some time since my last post but I'm glad to be back and have my first style post be for fall. 

Not only do pumpkin spice lattes return but it's the biggest season for fashion and trends. That doesn't necessarily mean I'm ready to give up one of my favorite summer trends, the mini skirt. 

Mini skirts were fun for summer and can continue to be fun for fall. Wear them with tights and hosiery for an easy summer to fall transition. The tights add a little warmth to your outfit. You can also pair mini skirts with a comfy sweater and booties for a stylish fall assemble.

I paired this skirt from Forever 21 with a black crew neck instead of a sweater since it's still a little warm in LA. One of my favorite fall trends from last year is back! Yes, I'm referring to over the knee boots. They made a statement last year and continue to do so paired with this button down skirt.

Cabbie hats are a huge trend for fall. They're comfy and versatile.  This faux suede cabbie hat compliments the look and adds that extra fall element.

Play Up Your Basics

Hi fashionistas! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and aren't too exhausted of all that shopping you did this past weekend.  It's been a while since I posted. I've missed you guys too much! I put together a fun outfit with just a little layering to it.

One of the things I love about fashion is the creativity. I like that you can put together two complete different designs and have it complement each other. You can take an old shirt and make it new again or take a basic top and make it eye-catching.

Basics are my favorite because you can dress them up or down.  This top from Hot Ginger LA is a basic long sleeve top with an edgy asymmetrical design. I dressed it up by layering a long chiffon blouse underneath. It completely changed the look of the long sleeve shirt.

It's all about this top in this outfit. I kept the rest of my outfit simple.  I completed my look with a pair of skinny jeans and pointy toe heels.

Day & Night

This is my first time collaborating with Hot Ginger LA. They are a company that sells clothing on eBay and just recently launched their website. They sent me a few goodies and I received this mock neck dress in two colors: taupe and silver grey. These dresses are so cute and only $10.99! They're also very versatile. I thought it would be fun to put together 2 looks: a day and night look.

I have to say this is my first time wearing a nude dress. I always tend to wear white or black dresses but I just can't get over this color. I think I'm seriously addicted to this color.  I really like that this dress is comfy and STRETCHY! I love a good stretchy fabric. I threw on a denim jacket, a pair of sunnies, and single strap heels for a sassy day time look. A great outfit for a lunch date.

Since the holidays are literally around the corner I thought it would be fun to put together my first holiday look. The shimmer in this silver grey dress makes it perfect for the holidays. I layered underneath some tights because this dress is a little see through. I finished the outfit with a pair of velvet booties which is this season's hottest trend. This outfit is great for a family or office holiday party.

fall jackets, patches, embelish

Patch Up & Camo

Patches are one of falls biggest trends.  They make for a fun DIY project or you can find one with patches already on them like this one from Pink Clubwear.  I love the camo print. This print goes with everything just like polka dots and leopard.

Style Tip: Create a fitted silhouette on a lose dress with a knot on the side.

A camo jacket has become a wardrobe staple. It's casual and comfy. Wear it with jeans, skirts, or like I did with a dress. I chose a little black dress with a lace-up detail and knotted the dress to provide a more fitted shiloutte. I finished the look with taupe booties because taupe compliments a camo print.

Matchy Roses

I loved wearing floral prints this past spring and summer; it turned out to be one of my favorite prints. I love fall weather and fashion but I didn't want to say bye to florals.  I'm so glad I can transition one of my favorite patterns to fall. Flowers and roses can be a great print for spring but mixing this print with a darker color palette makes it appropriate for fall.

This matching set from Pink Clubwear has a lovely rose pattern.  I love the colors too! This set is very comfartable and stretchy- which I love!

I've never worn a matching set before or one with a bold print. I put on a black top to create a balance between the print. I stayed comfy with some edgy flats and finished my look with these chic half tinted sunglasses. I wasn't able to find a similar pair of sunnies but any pair of edgy sunglasses will do to elevate this look.
