#ootd | From Summer To Fall


DISCLAIMER – I am NOT, nor do I ever aspire to be, a fashion blogger. I believe that beauty and style are both one way streets. Somewhere along they way, they intersect in the middle and if you utilize both, you can create the perfect look that complements your unique personality. On occasion, I may have a really cute outfit vision that prompts me to arrange a photo-shoot so I can share the look, but that is about it. My knowledge on fashion is very limited.

As far as my taste in fashion goes, I like to keep things simple but polished and a tad bit dramatic (just like my personality!). The majority of my wardrobe is very girly and preppy with a hit of sexy ;). For daytime looks I am inspired by fictional characters such as Blair Waldorf (from Gossip Girl duh!), Chanel No. 1 from Scream Queens (I am loving the start of season 2 btw!) and other TV mean girls that reigned over their peers. For nighttime looks, I think I am some random no name celeb, wearing plunging V-neck shirts and dresses (my signature) while posing for the faux paparazzi (aka my BFF’s). I’m not big on patterns but I do adore stripes. I prefer a neutral color palette with an emphases on grey and navy tones. I cannot live without cardigans and sweaters which is why Fall is my favorite season and as far as shoes go, I am a sucker for booties.

This look mixes a combination of summer and fall pieces to accommodate Chicago’s irregular, regular weather transition from hot as hell, to too damn cold.

IMG_0718.jpgI paired a mid length tube dress (a staple summer piece) with a denim button up and navy blue vest. The bottom of the dress is cut at an angle, making way for my sexy chicken legs to come through.



To amp up this look I swapped out my everyday stud earrings, in place for some big gold hoops! The gold earrings match my gold watch, and the gold logo on the tongue of my Adidas



To keep everything casual, I finished this look with an Adidas classic – the white and black striped Superstar shoes. This is my first time owning a pair and they are so easy to wear. The shoe is easily my favorite part.

What do you all think  about this look? Is it something you would wear during the day to class or running errands?
