HIT OR MISS FOR A FALL TRANSITION LOOK
Y’all, I had to laugh when I started looking through today’s photos. When my sister and I shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale last week, one of my bags beeped as we left the store. To figure out which bag had the issue, I held all the bags, and my sister went through the detector with one bag at a time. Once we figured it out, the clerk said it was a tag that had been left in my watch box, so he removed it, and when we left, the beeper didn’t go off. We thought we were in the clear…
Apparently, I was wrong. If you look closely at my blazer, you will see a security tag hanging underneath my hand. Since I bought this in Atlanta, it isn’t like I can go back to the store and have them remove the tag. I’m afraid to cut the tag off myself, so I guess I’ll have to return the blazer online.
my solution tool will be entered for a chance to win $10,000! (That’s from R+F, not me) For me, everyone who places an order as my Preferred Customer between now and 10 pm on the 20th will receive an SPF 50 Sunscreen from me. If the order is $150, then you will receive the sunscreen and Eye Makeup Remover. If the order is $200, then you will receive the sunscreen and Redefine Multi-Function Eye Cream, and finally, if the order is $300+, you will receive the sunscreen and an Active Hydration Serum. The free products are from me, and I’ll place the order for those on the 21st. Once they ship to me, I’ll mail them out to you.
To become my Preferred Customer, go to my website. Put the products of your choice in your cart, and go to checkout. At checkout, make sure to check the box that says Join PC Perks.
Let’s start today’s Hit or Miss post by talking about this Black Utility Jumpsuit. I like this jumpsuit a lot; it kind of reminds me of a mechanics outfit but in an updated and modern way. Jumpsuits are a one-and-done item, and I have come to love them. I have learned to head to the bathroom in plenty of time to unbutton or unzip the jumpsuit, or else you might have a disaster on your hands. Lol! You can dress this up or down, and I can see many ways to wear this jumpsuit this fall. I’m wearing a medium, and it fits me great.
Here is a close-up look of the jumpsuit where you can see the pocket details and sash belt. You can always remove the belt and replace it with something different if you want. I’m wearing the Sloan Star Open Frame Earrings in Mixed Metal. I love the dangling stars and how they are in silver, gold, and rose gold. The Adeline Chain Link Necklace and the 18 Kt. Gold Vermeil Cross Necklace are two that I wear all of the time.
You can sure see the security tag in the photo. Lol! I wanted to show you how to take the black jumpsuit and style it for a fall transition look. It is an easy process; you add accessories in fallish colors. I started by adding the Plaid Double Breasted Blazer I bought from the Nordstrom Sale. If you’ve not already looked at my try-on hauls, here is the first one, and here is the second one.
I go through spells where I buy all one color. Lately, I seem to be buying lots and lots of olive green and chocolate. It is wild how your taste can change since I’ve never been a fan of either color and now I can’t get enough of them. This Sycamore Green Tote is the perfect fall transition accessory. I love the size of this tote; it is large but not so large that Petite women couldn’t carry it. I also love the wide straps that seem to stay on your shoulders.
The leather tote I’m carrying is a little pricey, so here is a similar one that is half the price. This Oversized Shopper Tote is leather, and almost the same color and size, so it’s a good choice if the other one is out of your budget range.
Okay, y’all, these Tassel Platform Loafers are not something I would usually pick. I didn’t even pick these, Franco Sarto sent them to me to try, and I’m surprised that I like them. My sister wears shoes like this, so I sent her a photo of these to show her what I had gotten.
The platform lug sole is youthful and modern-looking, and I see a lot of women wearing this style, but I had never tried it. These are out of my comfort zone, but I think they are a pair I’m going to like, especially with jeans that are a little long. These are my regular size 9, and they are a little loose, but once I put on a pair of socks, they should fit fine.
Before I go, I wanted to ask if any of you bought anything yesterday for Amazon Prime Days? I purchased the Chocolate Protein Powder that we use all of the time, Joe a Brown Leather Dress Belt, and a Stretch Belt for him in Brown and Black. Somehow, the Ninja 14pc Knife Block Set and Ninja Kitchen System ended up in my cart. Lol! I’m not sure how that happened, but I’m betting my daughter had something to do with it.
Be sure to check out the Lightning Deals. Those are steep discounts on items with a limited amount of inventory. The deal will only last for a specific amount of time, so you have to act fast if you want them.
So, is this Fall Transition Outfit a Hit or a Miss? What do you like about the outfit, and what wouldn’t work for your body shape.
