August 25, 2022

You’ve probably heard the term “Transitional Wardrobe” but what does that really mean? You can utilize what you already own in your closet to build fantastic looks for the new season like Fall. Imagine using a simple black swimsuit as a luxe bodysuit as the temps dip and pair it with a black vest and a velvet hat?!?! I shared so many great takeaways and style tips with a fun segment with the lovely Jason Carter Inside South Florida . Watch the complete segment below and shop all the look and outfits I styled in real life!

The Black Swimsuit & 90s Jean

I love a simple black swimsuit and styling it with a vest and wide legged denim. This vest is vintage from my mother’s closet!

The Cowboy Boot

Cowboy boots have been reigning supreme all 2022 — and [they’ll] be even bigger for Fall. So if you’ve been dying to get your hands on a pair — whether they are a classic brown, embroidered with flowers or shocking white — you’ll be on trend.

Here are a few of my faves.

The Oversized Blouse

I’ve found myself drawn to a crisp oversized button-down. I’ve styled them with swimsuits and denim shorts all summer. This fall I plan to style off the shoulder and tied with jeans. It’s all about how to make it yours.

The Slip Dress

You may want to pack that sexy slip dress away, but it give it some more play during the chillier months. Try styling it with a t-shirt and blazer underneath with boots and tights. The options are truly endless! Keep it elevated, chic and relevant.

The Oversized Blazer

This is the closet workhorse that keeps on giving. In the summer you’ll toss on your shoulder over your dress on those chilly nights. In the fall, style it with everything from jeans, dresses, suits and leather trousers and shorts.
