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.

Fall Colors for Spring

You might think darker tones are best for fall but they can work for any season. It all depends on the fabric. You wouldn't wear a fur jacket in spring but a light weight duster instead.

I personally prefer to wear darker colors- can you blame me I love black. This burgundy sweater is perfect for spring because it's lightweight. I wore this outfit last week at the Cherry Blossom Festival in Monterey Park. The event was fun! Full of people, food, and shopping!

I can't take all the credit for this look. My Stitch Fix stylist sent over this top and booties. I completed the look with black jeans and a hat. I had fun with accessories and layered some necklaces and finished this outfit with some sunnies.​

Short Shorts

I’ve always had insecurities about my legs growing up.  I would avoid short skirts, dresses and shorts. I wore pants 24/7. I’m glad to say those days are over.  As time went by I grew to love myself and embrace my body. I just can’t believe the time I wasted disliking my body. Life is to short to worry about that. I learned every body type is different and beautiful.  This warmer season I’m embracing these thick legs I got from my mamma and wearing shorts, short skirts and dresses as much as I can.

Style Tip: Wearing high heels with shorts elongate your legs. You will feel and look sexy.

 Can I say I love these short shorts from Forever 21+. The crochet details on the sides is my favorite. I love the color and pattern. They also sit right above my belly button. As you might know I love any bottom with a high waist. I paired these shorts with a cold shoulder top also from Forever 21+. Unfortunately, they sold out of the top but I will provide similar options down below. Keeping  up with the warmer temperatures I wore this fun white hat to keep the sun away. Silver toned jewelry like this necklace and bangles were a perfect match for this look. I completed this outfit with platform heels that are a bright blue. Lately my favorite thing to do is adding a pop of color to my outfit when I’m wearing  black and white. Adding a pop of  color elevates the look.
