Fall Fashion, Cute Outfits for Colder Weather

I love styling for cooler weather. The need to keep warm with layers makes for lots of outfit options. I hope these outfit ideas inspire you to have fun with colors and textures and to step outside of the box by pairing pieces from contrasting style genres.

What to wear in winter
Just because the Summer heat has retired for another season doesn't mean your favorite cutoffs have to go with it. A major factor in being edgier with your style is knowing you can mix and match clothing and accessories you wouldn't normally even find in the same store during a particular time of year...like shorts and jackets. Pair leggings or tights with your sexy cutoff shorts. Add a cozy wrap and ankle boots and you've seamlessly transitioned Summer Girl into Fall Fox.

Summertime Fashion Tips and Trends - How to dress sexy and appropriately AND beat the heat.

women's sporting event outfits

 Outside or sporting events come with fashion challenges in the summer. 

To keep cool and classy, choose cotton pants or capris that offer ventilation and won't stick to your body paired with a baby tee or crop top. If you're still worried about showing too much, grab a collared shirt and tie it around your waste or wear loosely over your top.

Things You Can Make With A Glue Gun (Unique mirror frames, lampshades, swimwear, shoes, and even hair extensions!)

Oh the things you can do and make with a hot glue gun...
And I've tried them all. These projects not only produce professional results from hot glue adherence, but hold up over time...Yes even the swimwear (Hot glue can get wet and cold water washed, just DO NOT put in the dryer.)

CLOTHES THE DEAL...Job Interview Attire Ideas - What to Wear to a Job Interview

(For my thoughts on what NOT to wear to an interview, check out my article: "What to NOT Wear to a Job interview".)

A great concept to remember when dressing on for a job interview is to consider what you might wear if you were meeting your fiance's conservative parents...for the first time...in church! Nothing too short, too tight, too colorful, too revealing, too white, too black, etc. This criteria for dressing to impress a prospective boss probably seems impossible to meet so I've put together some great out fit suggestions with pictures to make it easy to ace 50% of that interview before you even leave your house.

Embellish Your Bikini - How to make last season's swimwear this season's trend.

Because of my constant, craft obsessive ticks, I haven't personally found myself in the hell-on-earth predicament (at least not since I was like 13) of being caught in the same swim suit as another girl. I do know, however, that the risk of realizing you are standing in the fruity drink line on your Carribean Cruise boat next to a girl who is dawning the same bikini that you blew last months bonus on because it looked "totally unique" is nightmare enough for you to want to throw your fruity drink on...YOURSELF, in attempt to achieve your one-of-a-kind look...at last! In truth, the only way to really achieve that elusive one-of-a-kind summer guise, is to take what you have to Gem Class. I've got all kinds of options for turning last season's, worn-out duds into this year's must-have, flair.

Cutting slits into a lycra swimsuit can really edge it up. Just make sure the suit you want to destroy has lining or be EXTRA strategic when making those cuts! Nothing's worse than getting scissors deep into a project and realizing you've made some brain-lapsing mistake and there's no recovery button.
Lay your swimsuit flat on the ground or surface. I choose the ironing board b/c its height is perfect for this project and it reminds me to cut CAREFULLY as to not disrupt the swimsuit's lining OR the ironing board's padding. Use scissors, but only use one of the blades, to GENTLY and LIGHTLY make slits in the lycra part of your swimwear by pushing the end of the scissor blade into the fabric and SLOWLY dragging it accross. You will probably have to use a LIGHT "sawing" motion to get the blade to slice through the fabric without pulling or snagging it. I also find you can use the end of the scissor blade to start the slit and then cut through it using scissors normally. Horizontal slits only. (It is impossible to make them slanted or any other way as the cut won't be straight and you will probably just end up with a hole.) Refer to the photos in this post to know how far apart or close together you can make the cuts.
