Now & Later

Summer is winding down (I can not believe its the middle of August). With all the great clothes coming up for fall there was a late summer collection collaboration from Garnerstyle & Rebdolls. This nautical inspired collection was filled with stripes, cool skirts, and an amazing wrap dress. I loved soo many pieces from the collection, but I wanted to buy items that I can easily wear into fall. I went with the On Deck Crop Top, because there are so many ways I can wear this easy striped top with all my summer clothes as well as the ones I have for fall. I went with the 2X which worked out perfect for me because even though it it stretchy it is still fitted.


For me the best outfits are the ones I don't plan. With the gorgeous weather I paired On Deck with my Ponte Circle Skirt from Eloquii. I am big fan of ponte (its comfortable and wrinkle resistant) and with it being white I was able to capture the nautical feel of the collection. This is a great easy going skirt, I wear it all the time, and its currently on sale. I went simple with my accessories, my silver DV by Dolce Vita flats (which have been a summer staple for the past two summers), flower sunnies from Lane Bryant, and my pendent. My purse is my oldie but goodie from Coach. 



This is my go to outfit for fall. I always loved khaki's (must be to due to working at the Gap as a teen). These are new to Lane Bryant and are called the Softest Chino. These fit great and they are true to their name. If you are looking for a pant that is easy going, definitely give these a try. For a little print mixing, I wore a tortoise shell necklace that I picked up from the Baublebar sample sale earlier in the spring. My booties are from Dolce Vita, I have had these for a while, but they now have an updated version. My purse is from Dooney & Bourke. If you have not noticed, I am a big fan of their bags. I love classic shape purses  that I can dress up or down with my ever changing wardrobe. 

These are just two versions of what I would wear with this shirt. For date night I was thinking of a blue bodycon skirt with some cute pink heels. Have you found any items that are transition worthy?
