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 take off 2 when it’s warmer in the afternoon, but that’s just part of the fun. 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 now layering it will keep me warm, but still keeping it sexy. 😉

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. This season 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. 😉 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?

Angelic

When I wear white I feel like I’m glowing. I like to think of it as body conscious without the figure hugging or at times…squeezing. It’s bright, it’s happy- oh who am I kidding, all black makes me as happy. I just felt like walking on air in this outfit.  I bought this dress because I thought I was actually going to go places this Summer. I was wrong, but even if this late in the game I can give some Summer advice. If you love it, you don’t have to wear it the moment you buy it, or in the season you buy it. If you’re one of those people who trend your way into fashion, then you might end up saying shit will I ever wear crochet again, or white or a maxi dress? But there’s always next season or next year. Truth be told, I never loved crochet, even thought about eliminating from this dress. My tailor didn’t have the balls to ruin my dress so he advice me to try it myself (the damage/ responsibility would be all on me), good call. What I felt had no end were my sky high heels. The dress was super long for my 5 feet 3 inch frame so I really didn’t mind going the extra half a foot! 6 inches closer to cloud nine, all dressed in white.

How was everyone’s Summer?

Are you transitioning your favorite pieces into the cool weather? Tell me all about it.

If you ever need a advice just shoot me an email. 🙂 Happy Weekend!

Love, BudgetSai

Storm King

In the middle of a crazy week, sometimes you need a B R E A K. Even the smallest getaways can become a great escape from that pile of work that just never seems to disappear. At Storm King, an outdoor art exhibition in New Windsor, New York about an hour from the City, I discovered a taste of art and nature I never knew I needed. A breath of fresh air to help cope with city polluted thoughts that can drag you down in your everyday life. It was the most relaxed and calm I have felt in a while.

I paired my zen outlook with a messy air dried bun, comfortable jeans, a white tee and Converse sneakers. The cardigan or what I like to call a coatigan was the thrift shop finishing touch: the vibrant colors reminded me so much of the Fall and it was warm enough to throw on and go. The fringe was on- trend and gave an added playfulness to the outfit.

I enjoyed my day trip to the Storm King Art Center. I highly recommend it if you love art, nature, and maybe even a hike if you’re feeling adventurous!

What are some of your favorite getaways?

Stop!

You want it? Then fight for it. Playing the part in my karate uniform inspired outfit as well as continuing to wear all black these Fall days. I may not have a black belt in martial arts, but I am a woman who fights everyday for her ultimate goal in life -happiness.

Hard work pays off…

When I got my hands on this vintage YSL scarf, it was all the convincing I needed to jump on the bandwagon. Next time I’ll be sure to wear it as a cuff, a headband, and maybe even decorate my favorite handbag.

…in my Loeffler Randall boyfriend cape. The best thing about Fall is the different jackets, cardigans, and capes you can throw on over your outfit and make it a part of your outfit. Outerwear doesn’t have to be just a piece of clothing to protect you from the up and down weather, let it be a fashion statement too. Leave it on and show it off. 🙂

Happy Hump Day!
