Boss Lady

Hell yeah. When you go for a cropped leather instead of a boring old blazer, that’s boss. Don’t get me wrong I love blazers, but not dated 80’s style blazers (sorry) .This is the time to play around with semi-light outerwear. Hoodies, leather jackets, longline cardigans, ponchos -anything but a heavy coat! (Insert crying face). Although in the Northeast it gets cold quicker than you know it, you can definitely pull off the light with the heavy (working on that post as we speak) if need be.

First I did go for the perfect secretary ensemble, then I was like well I’m not going to finish this off, I’m going to change it up. So I already told you about my bad ass bomb boss leather (throw some Bs on that ootd = outfit of the day), then there’s the shoes -should I or should not? I have to tell you, this is a love story baby. I love my lace up heels and that’s who I chose to be with for the look of the day. If the weather permitted I’d be in lace up heels all year round. I love the way they climb up your feet.ย  It never fails to make me feel sexy.

The bodysuit needs no explanation other than the high neck kept it edgier and less cookie cutter with a basic pencil skirt (one you can do anything with -trust me). To top off the look, my shades in case a ray of sunshine throughout the day. I’m looking forward to the cooler weather as long as I can work with it!

Do you have business attire days? Do you pull it off rough around the edges? Or are you a cookie cutter guy or gal with basic on your mind? Whatever floats your boat -go with that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Halloween is getting closer and I’m still indecisive about a costume. (Insert a double crying face!)

Come Alive in the Fall Time

We all wish it was still Summer, but in the end there’s something about the crisp weather that excites us to want to wear some really cool jackets. It’s challenging when it’s cold enough to bundle up 3 layers up and then have to takeย off 2ย when it’s warmer in the afternoon, but that’s just part of the fun.ย Don’t complain too much about the heat fading away, you’ll miss out on the leather and sweater weather -real quick.

I paired my new found love with boyfriend jeans, a bodysuit I’ve been dying to wear… like every other new thing in my closet yet to make its debut. Not even the cooler temperatures will make me forget about my bodysuits, only nowย layering it will keep me warm,ย but still keeping it sexy. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The shoes were also supposed to be a Summer staple because of its color, but remember there are no rules when you really Fall in love with fashion.ย This seasonย I’m willing to give up the darks for the bright side. Oh yeah!

These jeans? Love! You will definitely see more of the boyfriend, torn, distressed, like you got into a huge fight and you won cause you kept them look. ๐Ÿ˜‰ They are comfortable no matter what size you are. Throw on a bodysuit or a baggy sweatshirt and pose, but please have on some killer heels. Pretty please?

How do you transition your summer pieces in the Fall? Who’s stacking up their bomber jacket collection?

PS- I have to start thinking about my Halloween costume. Any suggestions?
