Before we dive into Fall content and topics this week, I wanted to make sure I still covered some sweet Summer style. Today's outfit was actually done for a campaign for Coca-cola. These were the outtakes and I figured sharing this look would be pretty inspiring! One of the things I strive to make sure I practice is enjoying the current season instead of rushing into the next one before it starts. Don't get me wrong, I usually take an inventory for my Fall wardrobe needs about this time of year, but it's too soon for me to actually wear a blazer or sweaters.

Shop the Look

This entire outfit was found on Amazon. There was a time before Amazon Prime where I found it really difficult to find things that fit properly on Amazon. Many times I ordered something 3rd party only to find issues getting it delivered timely or sizing properly. Not so much now! I learned to read the reviews, the ratings, only shop Amazon Prime for free shipping and accurate package tracking.

Let's talk about how to build this outfit. When I'm assembling a look I usually start with a color scheme and a focal point. This beautiful skirt can easily be dressed up with pumps and a button down blouse for a meeting or you can pair it with a lace trimmed top and suede slides. The feminine print with pops of red flowers make this skirt have a unique appeal. It's part feminine, part 50's inspired and very classic. It's a shape that flatters most body types and never goes out of style. All wins in my book!

Beauty Tip: Add a matte liquid lip color to match your outfit

A bright colored lipstick can give any look a little punch! I prefer to use a matte liquid lip during the day when I’m adding color to my make up look. We think an outfit is just clothes, but many times it’s hair and makeup that give an outfit a unique look! MOODSTRUCK SPLASH liquid lipstick in Sizzling is a true crimson color that dries to a soft finish and made to wear all day long. You can grab a tube here or bundle three of them for a deeper discount!

I love to wear a great pair of heels but comfort always takes priority these days. These suede slides are from one of my favorite new found brands The Royal Standard. If you follow along on Instagram you'll see me wearing these pretty much all Summer long. The soft suede like material make them blister proof! One of the reasons I find myself reaching for them again and again is that they are neutral, elongate my short 5'0 tall frame and easily pack. If I'm wearing heels, I oftentimes throw these into my purse for a quick change if my legs start to hurt. Beauty does not have to equal pain and there are so many options for shoes with support, memory foam and comfort!

This skirt will easily transition to Fall but for this hot Summer day a bright cherry tomato red hue is the perfect companion to a bottle of Coca-cola. I'll be honest, I don't drink sodas on a regular basis. However, every now and then I'll reach for an old favorite like a classic Coca-cola in a glass bottle. I prefer glass bottles to plastic for environmental and recycling purposes. I also prefer them due to the toxins that seep out of plastic. I've been looking into buying a refillable glass water bottle to use daily and would really like a recommendation!
