I can't believe that Summer is ending...granted I love Fall- trust me, the amount of looks that I have planned is insane. Even though I am all about jacket weather, this Summer has been pretty good to this blogger. The epitome of a great summer day for me is sunny and warm. The kind of day that Jill Scott talks about in "Long Walk". Just enjoy the time and people watch.
Days like this call for something easy. I live in dresses in the summer. I'm all about just throwing it on and walking out the door. I talked about Obioma when I attended TCF Style Expo earlier this month, and while I was there I picked up another item from them. Everyone loved the maxi, so how do I top that- with a mini fit & flare. The Dashiki dress from Obioma is a great addition to anyone's closet. The colors are bold, but completely wearable (this also comes in red, and orange). While walking around I received tons of compliments. It has pockets which always makes a cute dress, the best dress ever. I had to get this dress in a 3X since it runs small. I used to stress about the size on the tag, but as long as I look good who cares what size I am wearing. Also, who is going to see the tag? Not a soul.
When I was getting dressed, I was looking for shoes to wear, and almost forgot about these pom pom sandals from Nine West. They were the perfect addition to the outfit. The colors were the inverse of the dress, so they play well together. These sandals even with the little heel are still very comfortable and they are a statement maker. The Rizzah also comes in black, which would be a cool transitional shoe. You get the whimsy of the pom poms but something more neutral to wear with all the early fall items. To finish out my look, I went with my trusty pink Kate Spade bag and some cool cat eye shades that I bought from Eloquii a while back.
Now for me to go off and enjoy the last days of Summer because Fall is coming lovers! Later!!
