Slithering Into Fall

Hot Girl Summer is over and Fat Girl Fall is here folks. I had a pretty good summer, and I’m looking forward to Fall since it is my favorite season. I love layering, but these days it’s chilly in the morning and hot during the day so I am still getting much use out of my summer looks. One item that is definitely not going into the summer bin is this neon snakeskin dress from Torrid. It was perfect for my trip to Miami, and I can easily take this into fall with just a couple of closet staples.

Snakeskin was a vibe, and neon was a necessity for the summer, so the combination of the two automatically made this dress a winner. Torrid this season had some super cute on trend pieces that were not just one season stunners. I am wearing a size 2 in the dress (which is 18/20). The dress is made with a nice weight material that kept me cool while enjoying the walls in Wynwood.

In Miami I wore this dress with my Gucci belt and kept the neon snakeskin vibes going with my Sam Edelman sandals. These sandals are my go to every season. The Gigi sandals have a cushioned footbed, so I was able to walk around and not have to deal with foot pain. With summer closing out, you can get these on sale, and they come in orange, pink and green.

This dress is the definition of versatility. In the summer, it looks great with sandals, now in the month of September, I am wearing this with my Levi’s denim jacket (with the sleeves rolled up), and a pair of sneakers. When the temps start to drop more, I can wear a lightweight tee or turtleneck under the dress and throw on a moto with some combat boots and look so on trend but stay comfy and warm. When it comes to finding cute trendy items, the biggest question I have is this something I can wear more than one season? How can I change up the look to give a whole new look without having to buy a bunch of new items? Depending on the type of dress, this is the easiest way to get some double duty out of your clothes. These days, buying an item to wear once is not an option, so it has to be something that can be versatile. Do you take some of your summer items and wear them in the fall? Let me know in the comments!

Werk Appropriate Neon

I’ve always loved neon, from my highlighters all the way to my Air Max 95’s. Neon is bold and fun, but how can you incorporate in your work attire and not look like you just came from the club? I suggest showing your love of neon with your accessories. With just some accents of neon with your accessories and clothes you can rock the hues you love while still looking cool in the office.

Wild Fable Plus Size Skirt

When I am dressing for work, my go to is either a one and done situation like a jumpsuit/dress, or a tee and skirt combo. Throw on a blazer (for those offices that are constantly chilly) and you have a cool & comfy outfit. I paired my tank with this amazing skirt from the Wild Fable line from Target. You can’t go wrong with a leopard skirt, but I love the neon green drawstring. Adds a little bit of interest . This skirt is sold out but I linked other great options all from Target that are less than $40.

Fly Nerd Tank

Since this look is neutral adding neon doesn’t distract. Now lately I have not been wearing much heels (thank you Nike, Adidas & Puma), but when I saw these pumps from Schutz, I had to have them. I love that the shoe comes in three heights- kitten, mid (which I am wearing), and high. I went with the neon yellow, but since these cuties are on sale, I may go ahead and get the pink ones as well.

Another way you can incorporate neon is through some cool accessories. I have been all about the statement earring, and these were a great find on Torrid’s site. They are a great way to have fun with color without breaking the bank or looking too bright. Though large, they are comfortable to wear throughout the day.

A look like this is great cause you can easily wear this to work, but also make it super casual for an afternoon out. All I did was take off the blazer and swap my pumps for sneakers, and you are ready for a nice stroll around the city.
