Flawless Fall Transition: Chic Outerwear

I’m not sure if summer ever came, but Fall is definitely upon us and to make the most of your wardrobe you need to know how to transition. The best way to get a few more wears out of those maxis and sundresses is by pairing them with a jacket. That could include a blazer, leather moto jacket, denim jacket, and one of my personal favorites, the anorak. I’m sure some of the pieces I’ll have listed below, you’ll already have in your closet. Now when those cooler temperatures roll around, don’t be in such a rush to pack away those dresses, pair with a jacket on cooler days. You could even pair your dresses with tights, boots, cardigan and jacket too…layering is always key. Check out my top picks below.

I have three of the four….I just need an anorak. I’ll be on the hunt for that soon. All of the pieces can add a different element to your look. Choose your outerwear depending on the look you are trying to achieve. My go to pieces are blazer and denim jackets. The blazer adds a more polished look and the denim is for a more casual look. The moto jackets add a bit of edge to your look and the anorak would be great for a mix of masculine and feminine when paired with a sundress.

What is your favorite piece to transition into fall?

Ok so last week I told you all about me coloring and few hair pieces to switch up my look for fall. I dyed black peruvian human hair with Clairol Professional Classic Collection dye in 6N which is dark neutral blonde. Many people felt swindled because they thought I was going totally blonde. Honestly I had no idea that the dark neutral blonde on dark brown hair would make the hair sandy brown. Although I knew I wasn’t bleaching my hair I didn’t know what to expect. I also told you that I would be making my own hair extensions! If you don’t remember, click here. Well why the dyeing process was so easy and effortless the clip-ins were not! The gurus on YouTube make it seem like it was totally simple, but apparently I did not have the proper hair weaving needle :(, but because I’m resourceful and savvy, I made it work!

So check out how I styled my new hair and new look!

Perfect sporty chic outfit!

I went sporty chic with my Phillip Lim for Target BOOM Sweatshirt and my leather leggings from H&M. I carried new favorite bag from the Phillip Lim for Target collection and brought the look together with a pair of shoes that I’ve had for the last three or four years from Payless, yes don’t sleep on Payless and their shoes last.

I’m amazed at how great the color looks first because I did it myself, and second because it matches exactly to  my natural hair color. As I’ve stated in previous hair posts, my hair currently has three textures, most of my hair is relaxed, a portion of my hair is texlaxed, and then there is my new growth. My hair also has three different colors and for the Clairol Professional Classic Collection to be so versatile that it matched all three of my hair shades I’m simply blown away.

This picture captures the color so beautifully!

Remember the collection offers 16 different shades and because it is easy to use I’m sure you won’t have a problem finding the right color to fit your style needs. The process of coloring took about 10 minutes for the mixture and application and 45-minutes to process without heat. I love my new look and it’s just in time for my birthday too! How exciting is that!

I remember the last time I went to Kohl’s I said I’m not coming back for a while because they take all of my money. I would spend a certain amount and get Kohl’s Cash and would have a week to spend it so I would be back in Kohl’s earning more and spending more. It was definitely a vicious cycle and that was before I had any self control lol. Now I think I have a reason to go back besides the Daisy Fuentes Collection, Elle Collection, and Jennifer Lopez Collection, Kohl’s now has a collection with one of my favorite designers, Catherine Malandrino. I always love to see her show during Fashion Week because it is definitely refreshing and . I always said in my next life when I’m a millionaire I will probably have a closet full of her pieces, well now I can make that dream come true even if I’m far from being a millionaire.

Catherine Malandrino recently released a collection with one of my favorite retailers Kohl’s and the collection is definitely worth the drive to Rego Center Mall (the place with the nearest Kohl’s). Take a look at the collection

They are currently having a sale with everything 25% off so you may want to head to your nearest Kohl’s or shop online by clicking here

For this installment of “Style Files” I’m featuring three very distinct looks from three very fashionable women. I would wear each of these looks because they all suit some part of my style and personality. Check out Tia Mowry, Tamar Braxton, and Eve!

Ok for Tia’s look I would definitely wear this to work or church. It is sophisticated and modern. The printed skirt paired with the cream blouse and blue cardi is perfect for this type of fall weather, and you can still wear sandals, but I’d probably opt for a pair of open-toe booties.

Eve’s dress at the BET Hip Hop Awards was stunning. You can never go wrong with black and the sequin and intricate hemline is what makes this dress standout. Her soft curls red lip and wine colored shoes are the perfect compliment. My birthday is Wednesday and this is a look I’d wear to my birthday gathering if I was having one lol.

Last but not least we have Tamar Braxton in a black leather sweatsuit paired with red Christian Louboutin heels. Of course the red shoes are the show stoppers and this look is great for a girl’s night out.

Although they are three distinct looks, which look fits your personality and style best?
