End of Summer

Summer days are ending and fall will be among us sooner than we know. So what will you wear to transition between the hot and cold weather?

You don’t have to put away all your summer attire. How I like to transition is by layering. Take one of your favorite summer dresses, like I did here and add a denim jacket. This is great for cold mornings and warm afternoons. Cardigans, blazers, and jean jackets are idea for transitioning weather. Another  item for those days where temperatures fluctuate at a very high range of degrees are peep-toe shoes. You aren’t completely giving up the open toes yet. Peep-toes come in flats, heels and booties and work well for those in-between days.

Street Chic

Street style is the best style, whether it is comfy casual or all out fancy! My street style for today is more of street chic. This maxi skirt is my favorite you can dress it up with heels and a fancy shirt like I did here or you can make it more casual with a graphic tee and your most comfy sneaks. I accessorized the outfit with a cross body, trendy gold jewelry and stylish sunnies. 
What does your street style look like? Shop mine below.

 Shop: Elemis (here, here) | Take the Day Off | Cleansing wipes | Bracelet | YouTube Video

Happy Makeup Monday! It has been awhile so I thought I would virtually grace you with my presence. If you are like me you love trying new skincare products. I especially like products that help in the removal of makeup. I prefer them to be easy to use, somewhat inexpensive and healthy for your skin. This is why I am sharing my 3 favorite items to take your makeup off at the end of the day.
These three products are staples in my collection. Want to know why? Find out here in my Makeup Monday YouTube Video.

Every Girl Needs A Skirt

Every girl needs a good skirt for summer. One that they can dress up or wear with casual pieces. I found my summer skirt, this light and airy blue is super comfortable. I paired it with a simple v-neck tee and accessorized it with a lot of jewelry. I love a statement necklace and I think this purple agate one, which I designed and put together myself, goes great with this outfit and gives it a pop of color.   I added my favorite leopard clutch to give the pieces some texture. Finished the look with mirror sunnies and a pair of tan flats.

Do you have a favorite summer skirt? Shop mine below.

Jewelry Staples

Statement bracelet (similar, similar
Every girl needs a jewelry collection. Whether you can afford expensive, middle of the road or you just enjoy costume jewelry there are a couple staples that you need.

Statement necklaces are a must. They can turn any outfit into a more dressy one. You only need a couple of these necklaces and you can interchange them with different outfits. Some of my favorite can be found here and here.
A girl also needs a statement ring. It is a great accessory to add if you are a jewelry lover. When I travel I love to find different and unique rings to add to my jewelry box.  Find some affordable rings here and here
                    
A watch is a must. I have a collection of them, but you only really need just one. This watch is from Wristology. They have a great selection of watches that will not break the bank. Use code: AA20 for 20% off and free shipping. 
Bangles are a good accessory to add to an outfit. They pretty much go with everything from jeans to dresses. You can have just one bangle are you can fill up your wrist. I love the look of a bunch of bangles and the noise they make when you move your arm. Am I the only one? Shop some of my favorite bangles here and here.
A jewelry lover has to have several pairs of earrings. I always wear earrings regardless of where I am going or what I am doing. Earrings just make you look more put together even if you somewhat look a mess. I even wear them when I am working out, studs of course! Find some of my picks here, here, and here

A piece that I really love is a huge statement bracelet. The bigger the better. They are just so fun. I like a gold one or a rose gold with a solid color outfit (especially black), to make everything just pop. Statement bracelets that I would love to add to my jewelry box are here and here
