When I first came up with the concept for this blog I told my self I would be posting twice a week definitely not twice a month lol! but as they say, we plan God laughs; I am so busy these days I go days without coming across anything fashion related (well maybe not days more like 18-24 hours!)
On the other hand it is still like 80 degrees were I live during the day, but it does drop significantly at night which annoys me because by mid day I am sweating! We are currently experiencing climate-control issue’s in my workplace( thats a long story)
hence my previous statement.

Consequently I decided do a series on how I transition my favorite summer pieces for fall. Rompers/playsuit have been out for about three summers but believe it or not, I only have one and I bought it this summer ( I am most comfortable with classics and when I do venture out I have strict parameters). I hate spending a lot of money on trendy things especially when they will not come back the following year so I wait. Needless to say the romper kept on coming back and I finally found one in my size, my price point, and in a flattering silhouette. So off course you know, that I couldnt just store it away just because summer is over. 

Here is a typical summer outfit 
would have added a fedora and shades if I didn’t have my hair in this retro inspired style 

To transition the romper for fall the first thing I did was to layer on a light sweater

I chose the sweater because I wanted to play with prints, it has graduated stripes and is in a neutral palette just like the romper. To add some color I choose my purple suede loafers and I finished the look off with a printed bag that also had the same shade of purple to tie the whole look together.

Finally I added another layer for warmth
(you can decided to add as many layers as you would like )

 If its colder where you live and if your like me and you dont want to give up your romper, all you have to do is add some opaque tights, which with this particular outfit I would pair with combat boots and a red lip,to compliment the red in the bag.
P.S Stay tuned for the other pieces I will be transitioning for fall and also for the giveaway winner announcement
( I havnt forgotten).
