ANIMAL PRINT: THE SEASONLESS GEM

Details: Primark animal print drawstring tie top, similar here | J. Crew Toothpick denim pants, here |

I told you I wasn’t letting go of white pants. The mornings have been crisp and the afternoons have been warm. Don’t get me wrong, I love it, but I walked out in a full-on sweatsuit Sunday morning to run errands and by the time I got home, I was sweaty and cranky. I feel like they say this every season, but animal print is in fact BACK. That is if it ever went away. The verdict is still out on that. Anyway, as I was running errands I obviously purchased some fall staples, one of which ended up being a leopard print turtleneck. I think what I love most about animal prints is that they’re typically the perfect combination of neutral colors: black and white, brown and beige, light brown and black…the list goes on. I got this black and white animal print top earlier in the summer and I think it can transition well into the fall months. Just swap out the white denim and open-toe sandals with a dark wash denim pant and thigh-suede boots, and throw on a chunky black coatigan, voila! Instant fall look.

This weekend I’m planning to go through my closet and evaluate the joy each of my garments has brought to me this summer season, and if there’s anything that can transition as flawlessly into fall and winter as this top. I think the only word I have left for this post is RAWR!

Happy Monday! Stay sassy.

HANGING ON TO HEATWAVES & SLEEVELESS DAYS

Details: Stripe Pattern Jumpsuit from Amazon, here |

The grocery store has Halloween candy, and I swear I can smell pumpkin spice in the air. Listen, I’m all for the fall season; it’s one of my favorites, however, I’m currently focused on this week’s heat wave and how I can optimize my sun time this holiday weekend. We got a late start to the summer and I feel as though we’ve faced way more heatwaves than last year. I’m prepared to make the transition to fall, but I will NOT put away my summer clothes until Mother Nature makes the call. This summer, I ended up purchasing a ton of clothes from Amazon, including this PERFECT neutral stripe jumpsuit. It is so comfortable with its sexy open back and the length is perfect for my short stature. It is also so reasonably priced at $23.99, gotta love that Amazon pricing. The quality is great, but it is a little see-through so I recommend nude undergarments and perhaps a bandeau underneath.

To all my friends hanging on to summer and those already sipping on PSLs, wear what you want, but hold off on sipping on pumpkin flavored anything, okay?
