If you’re anything like me you stocked up on tons of halters, tanks, crops and other lightweight tops throughout Summer. This halter from Romwe is probably my favorite color, has been for the past couple of years and I don’t see that changing. I love how easily the soft color transitions into Fall & with Fall quickly creeping up on us I thought I’d share an easy way to shift your halter into the cooler temps, say goodbye to the days of tanks and shorts.
First off, trade in those cutoffs for some jeans. I recently have been drawn to destroyed girlfriend jeans, they’re relaxed without being too baggy which allows your shape to still be seen. I much prefer them to boyfriend jeans. The ones I’m wearing are from Shein and if you follow me on Snapchat then you know I’ve been wearing them nonstop since I got them. They are so comfortable, I ordered a size up for a more relaxed fit and I’d suggest the same for anyone else buying them.
Throwing on a heavy vest and some closed toed shoes are two sure fire ways to transition your Summer look into a chic Fall style until actual knits and jackets are necessary. Layering the vest over the halter gives the top a turtle neck feel which screams cozy and adds a little extra warmth too.

Vest: c/o The Lily James Collection (now 50% off)
Distressed Denim: c/o Shein

Bell sleeves are by far the top trend to hop on this season. Whether it’s on the shoulder or off, the bigger, more dramatic the sleeves the better. This shirt c/o Make Me Chic is the epitome of the perfect bell sleeved top- its fitted around the bicep area and then BOOM-flare central, plus it has the cutest striped pattern with perfectly placed cutouts.
Fall is right around the corner, be bold with your long sleeved tops. Why settle into the usual long sleeved tee or knit when you can add instant drama? Pair your bell sleeve tops with skinny jeans or a pencil skirt for a nice balance to the look.

After this past weekend a lot of people will consider packing away their swimsuits for Fall but luckily I live in Texas which means I have minimum 4-7 more weeks of swimsuit appropriate weather. I’ll keep all of my swimwear handy, especially this new cover up c/o Mare Cheia Swimwear that I’m currently obsessing over. The floor length, open front, halter style of this cover up is unlike anything else I own and just oozes sex appeal. I was legitimately turning more heads with it on than off. It would be perfect for lounging pool side in South Beach (which hello, is so my jam!) the barely there material is so flowy you barely even know you’re wearing it-if not for all of the head turns.
I wore it over this cute scalloped one piece for a day at the beach in California but if you follow me on Instagram then you would’ve seen this photo of the Mare Cheia One Piece that I got as well-it’s TO DIE FOR! It’s full coverage and has this really great criss cross detailing on the back that I’ll share on Instagram soon! I love it!! Oh! I almost forgot I also grabbed the cutest faux(kinda, they lace up and zip) lace up flats in a great bright cognac color, pictured here, I can’t wait to wear them to tailgates! Basically, I’m obsessing over Mare Cheia quite a bit right now.

You’ve heard it your whole life basically, “Every woman needs a little black dress.” But really, every woman needs a variety of LBD’s: a mini dress, a maxi dress, a fit & flare, a sheath, an A-line style and of course a wrap style (universally flattering). Recently I’ve stocked up on 3 of those styles with eshakti; the sheath dress, the Maxi and a fit & flare. Black dresses are absolutely timeless, just ask the collection still hanging in my closet from 9 years ago. With a dress you’ll have forever why not customize it to be completely your own? eShakti offers endless customizations, from measurement specific sizing, neckline options and even sleeve style to name a few.
I started with a maxi dress from Eshakti because of the added length option they offer for us taller girls that still want to wear heels with their maxi dresses and was so impressed with the fit and quality that I immediately ordered a sheath dress to have on hand for work and any meetings. Next came this lace up fit and flare dress that’s been the most versatile of all, from day errands to being dressed up with strappy heels for a date night. The on site version shows it in a maxi length option, but I decided to customize it to be a mini dress. The light weight fabric and shorter hemline are perfect for summer but throw on a cardigan and or leather jacket to transition it easily into fall.
Thanks to Eshakti for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

It doesn’t get much sexier than a v-neck paired with a choker but add two little straps accentuating that deep V-neck and oh my goodness the sexiness is through the roof. Who would’ve guessed such a simple tank could have me feeling so sassy?
