Falling in Style with these 3 Transitional looks!

Hello, lovely! It is my last few days in the motherland & we are soaking up every bit! I am looking forward to getting back to you guys recharged & ready to serve you up some fashion goodness! Anyway I wanted to show you 3 of my favorite fall transitional looks & why I think they work.

  1. Dress & Boots

    I feel like it doesn’t get any easier than a dress & boots to look instantly chic while trying to navigate through the seasons. This allows you to show a little leg but also stay mostly covered so you don’t freeze your buns off.

2. Cropped & Cool

If you know me you know I hate pants so I definitely utilize maxi skirts all year round. I pair this one with a crop top, denim jacket, perforated booties, & a nice fall hat. The denim jacket I can wear on or off like the scarf. The crop top just shows off a tiny bit of skin. The knot at the maxi allows me to breathe along with the perforated booties!

3. Sleeveless Sweater

The sleeveless sweater is underrated! I’m obsessed with this olive one. I paired it with my faux leather leggings, a scarf, & booties! The scarf is just the right weight to keep me warm if I get cold.

You probably noticed a trend here. Each look a little bit of skin is exposed. Not saying you need to expose your body for transitional style but it’s a balance. Spring/spring is all about bare legs & open toes. When fall comes we cover ourselves up. This transitional time can be difficult to determine what to wear. My rule of thumb is to have a balance! Give it a shot for yourself!

Well babes! I’ll be back in the states on 9/30! Talk soon!

3 Must Have Jeans

Hello, beautiful! I hope this post sees you well. Not going to lie to you I am feeling real motivated this week, I have some awesomeness in the works for you & I cannot wait to spill the beans. Anyway today we are breaking down the 3 must have jeans for your wardrobe. Maybe all three styles won't work for your body but I guarantee one maybe even two will. (If the short curvy girl can pull off all 3 so can you)

The Skinny Jean

I don't care if the magazines are saying that skinny jean is going out or not. In fashion there are no rules & to me skinny jean is a necessity. To balance long flowing tops & tunics a slim pant is needed on the bottom.  These skinny beauties are great to tuck into boots.

The Bootcut

The bootcut/wide leg jeans are making a comeback baby. Personally, I totally dig them. These flared finds give shape to those with a more narrow rectangular body shape. The bootcut also plays up curves. Perfectly pair with pumps, heeled booties, & clogs.

The Boyfriend Jean

The boyfriend jean is a more relaxed fit than the skinny. Instead of the skinny slim fit the boyfriend is a straight leg allowing for more give. The boyfriend is a great option for those that aren't comfortable with the skinny jean. Dress down your boyfriend jeans with sneaks as pictured or dress them up with a fitted top & pumps!

You may have noticed that two out of three of my jeans are cuffed. I like to show a little ankle not to mention I am 5'2. Petite girls I suggest getting short or petite jeans when available. For my fash dolls that are vertically blessed look for long or tall jeans, they will have your additional length. Jeans come in different kinds of washes as well: white, light wash, dark wash, medium wash, the list goes on. I suggest dark was because the color typically lasts longer.

Well fash dolls that is all I got for you today. Want to see something specific? Feel free to reach out on social media >instagram & snapchat @fashology< >twitter @fashology101<.

Stay sassy & God Bless!

Ring in the New Year in Style

Hello beautiful! I hope you enjoyed your holiday weekend. I can't believe we are moving on to 2017, time flies when you are having fun. This year I hit major milestones in my personal life; I married my best friend in June, welcomed our fur child Audrey to the family in July, & we bought our first home in August. Not to mention I was diagnosed with a tummy issue in April which I am finally starting to feel like a normal human again (Praise God). Despite the obstacles faced in 2016 I feel completely blessed.  This past year has been amazingly awesome yet wild all in one & I wouldn't have had it any other way. 2017 I am ready for you.

This year the hubs & I will be celebrating the last moments of 2016 by having a little shindig at our humble abode with some of our favorite people. I will be sporting this lace two piece skirt set which I absolutely fell in love with. I paired it with my black stud pumps. I love how the top is scalloped providing extra coverage compared to a typical crop top.

Do you have your NYE look picked? This night is the perfect opportunity to pull out your lace or sequined numbers (or your most comfiest pajamas if you are staying in). Whatever you do I wish you a very happy & healthy New Year.

Till next time Fash Dolls!

Stay Sassy + God Bless!

P.S. There are some major happenings coming up (cough new site cough) so follow along on Instagram @fashology  :)

 

Twas' the Night Before Christmas

Hello doll! It may not technically be the night before Christmas but it is Christmas Eve Eve. I have all my shopping done & I just need to finish wrapping! Can you guess where I got the inspiration for this shoot?

Every year we spend Christmas Eve at my Vovo's (grandmother's) as a young girl we wouldn't open our gifts till midnight because that's when Santa would deliver them. I remember going back to my parent's sleeping in the car on the ride home with a belly full of food & dreaming of what the man in the red suit would bring my siblings & I. Now that everyone is grown that midnight time seems to get earlier & earlier every year meaning we open gifts around 9/10.

This year is my first year as a wife & in our own home. My parent's would never allow me to dance on the coffee table so you bet I dance on mine. I had to get some festive PJ's. I hope that you & your family all have very happy holidays & a happy healthy new year!

Stay Sassy & God Bless!

Giving Fall the Cold Shoulder

Hello fash dolls! Giving fall the cold shoulder but, not really. A major trend that has been on the fashion scene is the cold shoulder. This can be seen on sweaters, tops, & dresses. Who would have thought a top with no shoulders could be so hot? Women everywhere are falling for the cold shoulder because no matter your size or age your shoulders will always be a smooth. Not to mention it is a subtly sexy way to show a little skin.

This specific cold shoulder sweater is from K Posh Boutique. I paired it with my new fav lucky brand jeans & black perfed booties. This sweater is cozy yet fabulous. Not only is it showcasing the cold shoulder trend but has this awesome sheer blouse detail in the back.

Try this trend for yourself! Fash dolls I wish you a fabulous long weekend. Till next time!

Stay Sassy + God Bless!
