Transitional Style

This post is sponsored by Walmart. All opinions are my ownSummer to Fall

While I love Summer and it still has a good amount of time left, I admittedly am excited about Fall. Fall is my favorite time of the year when it comes to fashion trends and style. The colors, prints and fabrics I just love.  And while I’m all for letting each season run its course until the new one arrives, it’s pretty difficult to do that during the Summer/Fall transition. Retailers and stores are already flooded with Fall garments in anticipation of the upcoming season. There were sweaters, jackets, and animal prints galore. So, I can’t help but dabble here and there, integrating those styles into my current wardrobe.

We Dress America

This look that I’m wearing is head-to-toe Walmart! Walmart has always been known for their amazing prices but I feel like they have really stepped up the fashion game in particular. Having collaborations with Sofia Vergara, Ellen Degeneres and more is really a new direction for the brand. Also, with their “We Dress America” slogan, it encompasses a whole slew of brands that are marked with current and trendy fashions. It really makes it a one-stop-shop where you can get your entire look at very affordable prices.

Transitional Fashion Pieces

One of my favorite items for Fall is a duster cardigan. Aside from it being so comfortable and warm, they really do add a chic style element to an otherwise simple outfit. Also, they are great transition pieces as you can use it for layering. I chose an oatmeal color to keep things light & airy for the Summer (even though they have several beautiful shades that you should definitely check out). This cardigan is incredibly soft and everything you want a sweater to be. I paired it with light colored skinny jeans, along with matching beige strappy sandals for those semi-casual Summer weekends. And that’s it! A simple Summer outfit, that can easily transition to Fall, all for amazing prices (no really, check out the prices of these things!). Check out all of the details below!

Summer is still going strong which means that maxi dress season is still in effect. Have I mentioned how much a love a good maxi dress? If you didn’t know already, you know now. This easy garment is an outfit all-in-one, which is perfect for those days where you just need quick style. With the Summer heat, I am always looking for no-fuss, breathable looks that I can put on at a moments notice.

In addition to the style that is perfectly suited for the season, this maxi dress features a bold print is sure to make a statement. Floral print is a classic and will absolutely never go out of style. Part of that reason is because of how versatile it is and how you can have many different variations of this pattern. I love the vibrant green color as the base to match all of the saturated greenery that this time of the year provides. It is contrasted with bold yellow, orange and red flowers that just make everything pop. Prints such as these can be intimidating from head-to-toe, however, they really add so much dimension to an outfit.

Wrap dresses of any kind are super flattering, especially on larger busts and curvy bodies. This one suited my frame so well by creating a v-neck at the bust, accentuating my waist, as well as having a double layer at the midsection. It really serves two purposes with concealing as well as enhancing. I finished off the look with some gold accessories, also from Lane Bryant to really bring everything together.

Hello Sunshine

August 11, 2019

I am one of those people that doesn’t have a favorite color. I just don’t know how anyone can choose just one! There are so many beautiful shades that are my favorites for a myriad of different situations. However, when it comes to fashion, I’m starting to realize that yellow is one of the favorites. It’s just something about this bright, happy color against my melanin skin that I just love. It is the most perfect shade for Summer. So, even in the most basic form, such as a simple square neck top, it stands out and makes a statement.

This top is actually a bodysuit, which I know is not for everyone but it’s something that I really like. Tucking in your top can get bulky but a bodysuit helps to keep everything nice & smooth. A major key to feeling comfortable with having your top tucked in is to have a great pair of jeans. Whenever I’m wearing a look like this, I reach for my jeans that have optimal tummy control. These particular ones are from NYDJ and I am constantly rocking them. You can see them in a recent post found here also. These jeans include their signature lift-tuck technology that really makes me feel held in and supported. I highly recommend.

Another one of my favorite pairs of denim to wear for these type of looks is Torrid’s premium stretch jeans found here. They are high rise, super stretchy but also very supportive. You really get the best of both worlds by being able to enhance your curves while also getting the compression that we all love.

To finish off this look, I dabbled in a little bit of leopard print with these high heel sandals. Fall is right around the corner so I’m starting to integrate some tried-and-true Fall trends into my looks. Check out all of the outfit details below!

The Block is Hot

Can you believe that it is already August?! Where has the time gone? Fall is right around the corner and that’s evident by the subtle/not-so-subtle Fall fashions that have started to infiltrate stores. While I love Fall and it is one of my favorite seasons when it comes to fashion, I’m not ready yet! Things just start to come out way before it’s time in my opinion (like the fact that I saw Halloween costumes in a store the day!) It’s just the beginning of August, temperatures are still blazing so I am even thinking about rocking a moto jacket or suede or anything of the sort. Ok, rant over.

Now, let’s get into this look. This outfit is an ode to Summer and secretly a rebellion to trying to rush me through the end of the season (lol). It’s bright and colorful, just like how I like it. I stumbled upon these shorts while browsing at Macy’s and though they were so cute. I don’t own any of these types of shorts because they never seem to fit me right. However, this one has ample stretch and they had a XXL in store so I decided to try them on. I was pleasantly surprised by how well they fit and the color is just divine!

At the time, I had no idea what I was going to pair them with. I was thinking of going with something simple like a white off-the-shoulder top for instance. However, I had just gone to JcPenney recently and picked up this coral top that I liked. I was actually thinking about returning it because I didn’t know if I would get a lot of wear out it. Low and behold though, the colors went together really well! Both bright but somehow, it just works (love when that happens!)

Be sure to check out the outfit details!
