Oh Fall…

Blog

When the mornings are cooler, the days become shorter, neutrals are everywhere, the leaves start changing colors and everything is pumpkin spiced it can only mean one thing, Fall has arrived! I don’t know about you guys but the fashionista in me is doing a dance for joy right now. I remember way back in my twenties…(wow seems so long ago lol) when Summer was EVERYTHING to me, but over recent years that has definitely took a turn. Back when I preferred short skirts, super high heels and everything to be skin tight…now I want long grandma skirts, loosely fitted clothing and a nice bootie with a decent heel. I will definitely still wear a 6 inch heel BUT there has to be a good reason for doing so, or an occasion where there will be plenty of sitting room, LOL. Fall has always been the season for Fashion, with New York Fashion Week starting of the month of September I don’t see that changing anytime soon. I haven’t really done much shopping so far and the little bit I did do were all blazers and suits, for some reason I can’t seem to get into much else. I’m sure no one is surprised to see me in yet another slip dress lol, I actually purchased this one back in July and knew the moment I received it I’d be wearing it in the Fall; as opposed to Summer. As I mentioned before that’s the beauty of these they’re so versatile and can easily be layered to achieve whatever look you’re aiming for. This blazer in particular is probably my favorite of all the ones I own; the print, the fit, the pockets (I couldn’t seem to keep my hands out of them in these photos), the colors, the quality, it’s really just an all around good blazer. When I think of Fall, specifically Fall fashion, I automatically think of blazers lol, although they can be worn all year round Fall is when they shine the most…in my opinion. They’ve been on every ones Fall Must Haves list and for good reason too. Since Fall is the official season for layering I think blazers are the perfect layering item. They can be worn alone, with t-shirts, dressy blouses, button ups, chunky knit sweaters, dresses, underneath coats and still give off a chic pulled together look. I personally think everyone should own at least 3 different blazers; a black one, a neutral colored one & one with some kind of print like the one I’m wearing. These booties have been in my closet for years now but I can’t really remember where I purchased them from. I do know it’s between Just Fab or Shoe Dazzle, do any of you guys still have a subscription with them? From what I can remember their shoes were decent and these are at least 4 yrs old, they’re pretty good quality and have held up over the years. The heel is kinda chunky and not to high making them super comfortable and easy to walk in. With cowboy style boots making a comeback this kinda reminded me of them, or maybe this is about as close as I’ll get to wearing cowboy boots again, lol. I remember back when I did have a pair and they were cool then but now I don’t see myself revisiting that trend. But whatever floats your boat, style is all about your own personal flavor.

I rant and rave about Fall all Summer long then never seem to be quite ready once Fall arrives 😂, it’s like I’m ready but I’m not ready, ready, if that makes any sense. It goes from being 90+ degrees outside to 60 degrees with little to no warning lol, while I welcome the drop with open arms I’m always a little confused when Fall first begins. I’ll start the day off wearing a sweater, blazer, hat, scarf and light jacket then be sweating by noon lol. I guess that’s the beauty of layering, having the option of removing some clothes so you don’t burn up. Once the temperatures drop and stay there is when I’m most comfortable, until then my mind be all over the place.

I’m most excited for wearing real clothes this Fall LOL, Hot Girl Summer was cute but Bad Bish Fall has arrived and we are not taking things lightly. What are you most excited for this Fall? Pumpkin spiced lattes? (Unfortunately my stomach won’t allow me to indulge in them anymore) Halloween? Cool cozy nights? Y’all ready for cuffing season, or nah? LOL! Is Fall your favorite season like mine? Let me know down below. Thanks for stopping by and remember, whatever you do, always do it with style.

Xx, Quita
