Happy Monday everyone! As we are all recovering from New York Fashion Week and starting off the new week, I thought I would share this outfit of the day which is one of my favorites on a hot Miami day. Although it’s cooling down in other areas, Miami seems to remain warm and humid (my hair is loving it of course). When it’s really hot outside, I tend to throw my hair up in a chic bun to keep it off my neck. If you have thick hair, as I do, this is the perfect way to stay cool from head to toe!
A simple way to create a look that is both comfortable and weather-appropriate is to pair some colorful shorts with a basic white tank top. I’ve also added open-toed platform sandals in a coral shade which complements the shorts. If you’d like to see how I transformed this look into a Fall outfit, you can view it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jX2EquDS5iI&feature=share&list=UUQ90gZXdQErnOQHkoUT_6cA
What I’m wearing:
Although the season is changing, that doesn’t mean your entire wardrobe has to! One of my tricks for keeping summer items around for the upcoming season is to layer pieces and learn to complement them well. There are some pieces in my closet that I find work well in all seasons. It’s all about pairing them together with other season-friendly items (and of course you don’t want to rock your Summer bikini in the Fall).
For example, keeping brightly colored tops, dresses, skirts, or even shorts around in the upcoming season can easily be achieved by adding layers. I love the jewel tone trend this season; however, my heart will always be with pops of color as well. I’m also loving the mixing of patterns for this season. When it comes to fashion, I believe anything can be pulled off if you have the confidence to rock it! Check out my How to: Transform Summer to Fall Pieces video below:
