Another One Bites the Dust

It’s the middle of the week and we have high temperatures sticking around like it’s still Summer. The best way to deal is to have piece of outerwear handy if you’re planning to to be out longer in the night just in case, AND wear nothing underneath. Okay just kidding, but goodness this humidity. The temps will drop/rise unexpectedly from crazy to crazier. This has been your unofficial warning. Bring a jacket or not. Believe there will be Autumn.

This isn’t the first time you’ve seen me in a duster coat and this won’t be your last. The drama will forever continue. Throw it on like Batman, take off like you’re not -just hot. Sigh.

The outfit: off black shorts, a pastel green blouse to compliment the black and peep the details of both: frayed, sparkles and a wrap around waist. No plain Jane here. It’s like I created my own romper or matching set. And I love rompers.

I gave the option of going glam to casual with these 2 pair of shoes. The silver lace up POP, where the oxfords make it easier to walk in of course, but also very on trend. I’m loving the nerdy inspired shoes. For some reason I always feel like I have to add glasses to my look when I throw these on.

The last couple of outfits have made me feel sexier and accepting of who I am like no others have before. Maybe it’s the day, the week or the month, but what I do know is I wouldn’t want to change it for anything right now.

The Arrival

Autumn has finally arrived! However, the heat is still lingering, that still gives you time to set all your Summer clothes aside, pick and choose your transition pieces and prepare your Fall wardrobe. Things you can keep for fall? Open toe shoes.
The fashion world has brought out trends where women are wearing sandals in the cold (bravery if you ask me), sandals with socks (smarter) and pairing it with Summer/Fall friendly looks.
Back when I was younger, anything opened around your toes after Summer was a no no. I’m glad not only is it “allowed”, but that we are more open to expanding our choices each and every season.
For example on my last post I wore those Schutz very high heeled sandals, the first time I ever wore them all Summer -I didn’t want it to be my last. I took a stand for all the open toes out there and I put together a Fall (but still kind of warm) look. I set aside a versatile piece like a denim skirt and paired it with some of my favorite Fall staples: Summer scarf, button down shirt and completed it with a fringe handbag.
I played around with the color scheme starting with the shoe because it was the one piece I did not want to let go of for this outfit (to prove my point). I saw lots of camel, tan, the dark blue from the skirt and the olive green of the shirt complimented those colors. Perfect first day of Fall. How do you think I pulled it off?
What trends are you looking forward to trying in the fall? Any Summer items making its way into your fall wardrobe?
 
Love, BudgetSai

All White

Finally! I call this look a tall glass of milk. Why? It does a body good. 😉

All white is something that’s very happening this season. I chose to explore the trend to show that the monochromatic look can work for all shapes and sizes and still be work appropriate. Pulled my hair back into a ponytail (which I never do) to let the neck and the holes do the talking. It was a day of exploring new territory. For the office’s AC cool temperatures I threw on a blazer, but kept it warm weather friendly in lace up sandals. Fashion is all about a balancing act. 😉

Do you like my all white look or should I stick to my all black looks?
