Playing with stripes and asymmetrical lines for fall

wearing: fall sunglasses / lipstick / bold faux gem earrings / black twist tee / striped asymmetrical hemline skirt / holiday 2018 nail polish (check out my review here) / bold silver and green ring / PVC tote bag / white booties /

How fun is this skirt! Instead of being a mullet, it’s like a party on the left, and business on the right. Lovin’ it!

This skirt was originally going to be part of one of my NYFW outfits, but as you know, I had to cancel my trip for a medical emergency. As a result, this skirt has been hanging in my closet since the end of August. Even though I am loving the cooler temperatures the fall season brings us, I was secretly thrilled the last couple of days when the weather went back up into the 80’s. This meant I could wear my skirt! Yay!

In order to bring this avant-garde skirt down to the streets, I paired it with a conservative black twist tee, and some fun accessories. Faux gems are a huge trend right now, so I thought these earrings priced under $25 were perfect for adding a little sass to the look. My white kitten heel booties are really comfortable and bring out the white in the stripes on the skirt, so I added them too! I wasn’t sure which bag to wear, but my daughter convinced me this little PVC tote was perfect; so I went with it! haha

I can see this skirt with knee boots and a chunky sweater on cooler days; I just need to replace my beat-up black knee boots from a few years ago before I can put that look together!

What do you think of asymmetrical hemlines? Do you have fun wearing them, or are they a little off-kilter for you?

wearing:; silver earrings (old, similar here) / blue animal print sunglasses / lipstick / black v-neck tee / silver pendant necklacecozy grey cardigan sweater (under $150) / fall nail polish / white Gucci lady bag / classic straight leg jeans / western style boots (so comfy!!) /

The fall season calls for warm drinks, soft blankets, and cozy cardigan sweaters. So when the weather begins to cool off every fall, I seek out cozy and soft cardigans to get me through the season.

This grey cardigan is sooooooooooo soft! I can’t even begin to tell you in words how soft it is! I wish you could reach onto the screen and touch the sweater in the photo to see how soft it is! Can someone please invent that technology?? TIA!

A cozy cardigan and jeans is a go-to outfit for the fall season. This is a look I will reach for weekly; and the sweater is already getting reached for daily. It looks really cute over leggings, stretch pants, and of course, jeans!

I always look forward to cooler weather so I can cozy up in a soft cardigan sweater. What article of clothing do you look forward to every fall?

What is Athleisure

Have you ever asked yourself, what is athleisure? It’s a new word that has been kicked around now for the past several years. Athleisure is a style of dressing which addresses the modern dilemma of needing to look appropriate when running from the gym, to the supermarket, to a meeting at a coffee shop, and then off to your child’s school to start taxiing he or she around for activities.

Athleisure has become a huge part of my personal style over the past ten years. I have three kids, a job, and I am active in the community. Between my work, volunteer work, and family, it’s hard to find time to change my outfit multiple times per day; plus, I like to be comfortable. I’m so thankful for adidas clothing and accessories. They are so comfortable, and always appropriate for my busy lifestyle!

It’s amazing how day-to-day style has evolved in the new millennium. When people wore casual clothing before the new millennium, they still looked fairly dressed up by today’s standards. A casual look on a busy day, such as the ones I live, would have included jeans, high heel boots, a statement top, and a structured jacket. While this sounds like a cute, casual look, it’s not that comfortable, and you can’t wear it to the gym! That type of outfit requires extra time in your day to change for a workout, and the structured jacket leaves little in the way of comfort when you’re extremely busy. I am so thankful athleisure has become more than a trend; it’s a classic style of dressing in the modern world. Love that!

Adidas has the best clothing and accessories for a comfortable and chic athleisure look. I love their collection of leggings, track pants, and active pants. They have a variety of tops to choose from; so, you can look gym-serious, or urban casual-it’s your choice! Of course, adidas also has a variety of jackets and sweatshirts to keep you cozy on chilly days. They are so soft and extremely high quality; so, you can wash and wear them often without worrying about adidas clothing wearing out. For my busy lifestyle, that is a must!

You can find the perfect athleisure look online at adidas.com.
