Ways 2 Wear Long Blazers

IMG_0074IMG_0075IMG_0077

What a time to be alive.  Fall is actually approaching, and I must say  this is the season where my heart belongs.  When it comes to fashion and styling, Fall  gives me the opportunity to play around and have fun with my personal style. I am one of those persons that could wear fall pieces all year round. Don’t get me wrong, I do love summer pieces, but for me it is more fun to diversify my style during the fall.

My fall staples consists of, BLAZERS, BOMBER JACKETS, LEATHER, BIKER JACKETS MORE BLAZERS, KIMONOS, FRINGE, BOOTS, CAMO/ UTILITY PIECES, COATS, SEQUINS, FISHNETS, STOCKINGS, COMBAT BOOTS, you name it !!

What inspired me to write about “Ways 2 Wear” long blazers is, i’m a collector of blazers; long, short, cropped etc.  I really don’t get the chance to wear the blazers that I do have as often as I want to, and Fall in Florida really feels like summer with a little wind  some days. With that being  said,  the minute it gets windy  in Florida, people like myself tend to go for the fall staples which I love so much. I believe that most people here are skeptical about wearing anything that looks like a coats because it might be to hot to pull off,  as to why I am excited to show 3 ways to wear long Blazers. Even though long blazers somewhat mimics a coat  what makes them  Florida friendly is the material is made of a lighter fabric, just like the one I am wearing (linen).

As spring  slowly approaches, maybe it is time for me to lay off darker colors for a while “hence” the reason behind this post. I am unsure if that truly will be the case, however all the more reasons for me to come up with ways 2 wear  those darker colors during lighter seasons. I have always been a big fan of WIDE LEG/ PALAZZO PANTS, which is why when I saw these stripped green colored pants I didn’t hesitate getting it. I really love these pants, they were pretty easy to style and  the color is absolutely amazing.

“THE POWER OF THE RUCHED SLEEVE WRAP BLOUSE”, by far this one of my favorite piece for the summer. This blouse can be pretty much worn with anything, “I mean anything”. Not only does the versatility of this blouse intrigue me,  but the fact that it is also suitable for any occasion excites me. In this feature of “Ways2Wear”, you are going to find three fun ways to wear this blouse. Have I mentioned this is my favorite post so far. I love that this blouse will also be making it’s way over to the “fall”. I have failed to mention that I have this blouse in multiple colors because I love it so much.

Growing up, I was never a girly girl. As my wardrobe was made up of  pants, sweat pants, blouses, t-shirts and more pants. Skirts and dresses were the last thing on my shopping lists.  As I’ve gotten older, my sense of style have changed just a little in a sense of incorporating the things that I never thought I’de wear when I was younger. When I do wear skirts, I do like to have a little fun with it. Which is a combination of my personality as well as my current mood. When I saw this skirt, the first thing that came to mind was the many “WAY2WEAR”  it. Also my favorite thing about this skirt is the color, that made it so much more fun to style. One of the ways I wore this skirt, as you can see in the above photos, where I paired it with one of my favorite tops (I love this top by the way),  fish nets stockings and some pumps.

As I’ve stated in my previous post that skirts were never really my favorite, but I have developed what  I would call it a “PLAYFUL” relationship with skirts. When I say “playful” I simply means that I have to implement fun ways to wear them.  As we all know it is “summer time”, what perfect time to wear skirts? This skirt is not your ideal denim skirt and what really “woo” me into getting it, is 1- its maxi (I love maxi everything) and 2- this maxi skirt give me a “vintage/ 70’s vibe”. In my posts you will see 3 ways to pair this  maxi denim skirt.
