Fall is approaching in Oxford fast, and I’m totally prepared. Fall is my favorite season for fashion. Anybody can put together a sundress and sandals for the summer, but once the weather breaks you notice who has true style.
I keep my wardrobe stocked and prepared for the season changes. Most pieces in my closet can transcend from one season to the next easily.
This summer I wore halter tops that could be paired with anything. So, to take this Forever21 black halter top from summer to fall quickly, I paired it with a faux leather skater skirt that I’d gotten from ASOS a couple of years ago. Together they are magical.
This faux leather skater skirt inspired me to bring out my leather Chinese Laundry wedges. These shoes helps every element in the look to mesh perfectly together. I add gold accessories to bring some light to the darkness.
I’m wearing my hair in its natural state right now, so, hoop earrings are a must in jewelry box right now. I love how my hair adds to the look. Along with the location, I feel like it’s the 70s in London!
I pray this fall be filled with amazingly good style, and it’s captured by great photos.
So, I’ve finally been able to get out to a beach for some sun! It was a perfect Sunday to pull out my favorite bathing suit this summer. Of course, it came from one of my favorite stores, Forever 21. The plus-size section at F21 is gives us bigger girls the freedom to wear whatever we choose.
The high waisted bikini design dates back to the 60s but this millennial girl loves them! It lets you channel your inner pin-up girl. I always feel like a thick, black Betty Paige when I wear one.
I’ve gotten so many compliments in this suit. I just absolutely love it on my skin complexion and body. The neon colors and the straps in the back make for perfect tan lines. The high waisted bikini design is meant to give you a slimmer waist while smoothing out your belly. The bottom lets your hips stick out, while allowing your legs and butt to look amazing. I don’t have the biggest butt, but its firm and just round enough.
I don’t usually waste my time with cover ups while going to the beach. I’m pretty comfortable in my skin when I put on a suit. There are more women like me who have embraced the “fatkini” and broken the rules when it comes to bathing suits. I’m not going to stop wearing what makes me feel good. Forget good, AMAZING!
Summer will forever be a great season for fashion. Well, truthfully any season is a great season for fashion. This summer has especially bloomed into something epic for my wardrobe. Before diving in too quickly, I have to make sure that I have the perfect bathing suits. I was in a rush to squeeze back into my favorite high-waisted bikinis.
Forever21 will forever be my go-to for cheap but chic style. I’ve always been able to create fashionable looks with the pieces I’ve ordered from the online site. Last summer, my favorite bathing suit was lined with fringe.
But this summer, I’ve found a new love. Black may not be the color for summer, but it definitely lets my melanin be on fleek in this particular suit.
With or without the straps, I’ve fell head over heels and straight into the nearest swimming pool with this gorgeous, crochet suit.
