Summer may have officially ended but don’t put your skirts and sandals away just yet. One thing I love about not being in school these days, is not feeling like summer ends when Labor Day hits. With winter right around the corner I try to tell myself every morning not to rush the fall and winter clothing, in four months I’ll want to be wearing tank tops and shorts. To start the transition into the fall season without doing away with summer try adding in darker colors but still keeping the summer staples alive.

This woven black skirt is a great basic. It’s comfortable, not overly dressy and it even has pockets! I choose to pair it with a simple striped t-shirt and leopard accents for a more casual look. Leopard is for all seasons, there are no exceptions. This leopard bag is great for this time of year and can be paired with virtually anything. I always find ways to tastefully work leopard into my look, just a touch is enough.

Summer has not ended people, lets even keep your whites out a little longer this year!

Fall is upon us and my scarves are out! Take a basic outfit to the next level with a sassy scarf accent.

Grab your favorite colorful scarf and choose a shade or two within . Then add accents based on the color, or colors, that you chose (don’t be afraid to choose more than one!) . If you’re feeling daring, mix in a print like leopard! Beware of mixing too many colors when it comes to the major elements of the outfit, you don’t want to get too choppy. Pick unique neutrals to make your splash piece pop!

I love this eggplant tunic from Forever 21, it’s not only a great color but it also has great flow and an accordion pleated back.

What’s you favorite way to spice up your outfit?
