Sweater Weather

“I can smell Autumn dancing in the breeze”

Happy Sunday Lovies, please take a minute and say a prayer for this planet that we inhabit. There have been natural disasters from Houston, TX all the way to Sierra Leone, Africa. Let’s pray for the wellbeing and restoration of health, home and family for those affected by the storms world-wide.

This weeks look is another simple one. It’s all about sweaters and fall boots. I found a gold knitted sweater at my local Salvation Army thrift store and knew it would be perfect for the Fall weather. The sweater is not too heavy and could be worn with a undershirt beneath it. The gold color is also one of my favorites for the Fall. I put it with a Forever21 red pleated skirt and a short brown pair of old Jessica Simpson booties. I love this simple look.

Linked below is a F21 pleated skirt and a comparable sweater both for $15.99. I also linked a pair of boots that are perfect for the fall. My vintage Dooney and Bourke is old but any great leather bag would go perfect with this look.

Remember Fall is all about layering. My skirt is short and my sweater is long and warm. The booties are short because it’s not cold enough for thigh-highs. Play round with summer items you have in your closet and pair them with boots, sweater, jackets, etc…layer, layer, layer. Let me know what you think of this look and how you plan on revamping your summer clothes into Fall pieces.

Sweater Weather!

It is that time of the year again. Baby it’s cold outside. The seasons are changing and I definitely love it. Being from Africa, my parents never understood why I loved winter so much. I’m the kind of girl that sleeps with my fan on and my window open in the winter. That being said, I also love the clothing that comes with this season. The boots, the sweaters, the layering…(insert heart eyes).

My favorite look for this season is a great oversized sweater with some amazing tights. Since I am a petite person, I will always belt oversized items so I don’t look like a child in my mother’s clothing. Now you can always exchange these for jeggings or even jeans if you need the extra support. Rue 21 has a great pair for a good price. Any oversized sweater will do. The one I have on I bought from Dillards and is no longer in stock. Pick one that you like and see how it looks with or without a belt and rock it.

The boots however, are AVAILABLE and amazing. I have the hugest calf muscles on planet earth so I always have a hard time finding boots that will fit over them. I love these boots because the top is open and they only zip up mid-calf. They fit like a glove. I bought them from an amazon store and they are still in stock so check it out.
