October starts tomorrow and thank God the temps finally starting dropping this week. I haven’t really wanted to think about Fall fashion because it’s been boiling most of September. How can we think of faux fur, boots and fun scarves when the only thing that is comfortable is a tank or maxi sundress!?!
I browsed through my style videos and came across this one highlighting timeless black items and thought it’s the perfect time of year to dust them all off! These are investment pieces that all need to live in our closets.
Also, being the end of a month and the beginning of a new one I challenge you to take some time to reflect and re-examine your goals.
Let’s make October outstanding. There’s only 90 days left in 2016. What do you need to do differently in the next 3 months?
Now come on…you know there are WAY more than 15 items I think we all need in our wardrobe! For the sake of time (and it ended up being a long webisode anyway) I narrowed it down to my Top 15 across the board whether you’re a die-hard fashionista or simply stylish! BUT, here is the icing + cherry on top…yummmm! I’m giving you 5 more must have’s and if there’ s an item you love that I haven’t mentioned– come on- don’t hold out on us…SHARE IT GIRL!
1. PEEP-TOE BOOTIE
They’re sexy and you can wear them with pants or skirts. Instantly makes you feel flirty. Make sure to have a fresh pedi!
2. DAYTIME “Signature” CHARM/ PENDANT
I adore charm necklaces! Especially the ones given to me by someone dear to me. It makes me think of them while I wear it:-) Whether it’s a diamond heart-shaped pendant, a healing stone or your initial- I love them all. I think my Grandma started giving me charm necklaces when I was about 5 yrs old. Hey, start ’em young!
3. KNEE-LENGTH PENCIL SKIRT (preferably black)
Bowchickabowbow! These skirts are way more sexy (in my opinion) than a mini-skirt! They flatter just about every body type whether you have stick straight boy hips or a beautiful hourglass figure. Make sure to get one with a great stretch and a bit of a higher waist. They’re timeless and hot, but oh so classy!
4. COLORFUL SCARF
This little item is an instant mood lifter! I function better when it’s sunny outside so on the days that are rainy and dreary, I throw on a bright scarf to change my mood!
5. AVIATOR SHADES
These are my ALL TIME favorite sunglasses for several reasons! 1) They are light-weight so I love to wear them when I’m powerwalking or hiking. 2) They have the little rubber grips for the bridge of my nose so they stay put. I can’t stand how the oversized shades rest on my cheeks! 3) They just look plain COOL! Everyone looks great in aviators. They’re timeless and will never go out-of-style! ROCK ‘EM!
Finally, the cherry on top: A SPARKLY, STUNNING SMILE!
I consider this THE most important must have accessory that you should never leave home without! It doesn’t matter if you are wearing the most gorgeous couture Gucci outfit, if you aren’t rockin’ a beautiful smile along with it…well, you might as well go back home and start all over girl. You just wasted about $2 Grand on nada! Great news for you gals who may have a non-existent shopping budget right now because you’re paying off student loans–if you are sporting a stunning smile–people don’t really notice what you are wearing anyway! They’re captured and impressed by YOU and the confidence that a smile exudes! NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT IT!
