Ageless Style: Summer to Fall Denim

Welcome to the Ageless Style Link-Up!  Today's prompt, summer denim is brought to you by Jodie of Jodie's Touch of Style.  The denim skirt is continuing to be a popular trend into fall and winter 2023.  I am so excited to add this denim maxi from Garage to my closet for the summer season but I am already thinking about how I can transition into fall.  The length is perfect for a casual work place environment, as well as my casual lifestyle outside of work, making it the perfect addition to my wardrobe.  My favorite part is the slid of course, it's fun and flirty, while staying professional.  This skirt is a heavier denim but doesn't feel heavy on and I am loving the shape.  Although I keep reading that low-rise is coming back, I sure hope not, I am happy to report this sits nicely on my waist, thank you very much.    For reference I am wearing a size small.  

Summer Vibes:

For summer I kept it simple with a white knitted tank top, slides (these are not Birkenstocks, rather knock off from Sketcher), and gold jewelry because I am obsessed with gold at the moment.

Fall Vibes:
Transition into fall means layering up to stay warm, so I played with different textures by adding this vegan leather schaket into the mix.  Although schakets are on their way out, I do like this one for a little variation in my closet and so I'll be holding on to it for the time being.  I also absolutely adore the color.  I adding my favorite pair of boots and I love how they peek-a-boo out of the slit.

Before I send you off to check out all the other ladies styles and to link up, I just wanted to let everyone know that I am starting a new job next week and it's going to be amazing but busy school opening for me.  I will be learning a LOT and am also continuing to train for a couple of half-marathons coming up at the end of September.  I will be taking a break from blogging until for sure mid-September and possibly end of September.  I WILL BE BACK, but I just need to focus on my professional learning and growth for the moment.  I will be still popping on and off IG but my presence will be reduced over the next three weeks.  Love you all.

Bright and Bold All Summer Long


Summer is NOT over yet, especially not when this dress needs a bit more play time.  This dress was made for summer, don't you agree?  Remember last year when I was in Rome without any luggage?  Well this cute dress was a great find from the Mango store at the Rome train terminal.  It's lightweight, flowy, fun rose pattern and the sleeves are just adorable.  It's a great length too, not to short, so I wear it to work a lot.   Unfortunately  I can't find this exact dress anymore but I did find a very similar one from Mango here.  My favorite accessory pieces have been this cute white purse which goes with everything, and gold accented jewelry like my hoops and watch.  

Tell me, are you over summer or are you still holding on like me?

Pure Pink Perfection

I just love pink and this outfit is just another example of pure pink perfection.  I am still fully entrenched in summer mode, at least for a couple of more weeks, and this is the prefect outfit if you are attending a dinner, a summer wedding, or a garden party.  I wore this outfit in DisneyWorld the night we went back to watch the fireworks show at Magic Kingdom and needless to say I felt very much like a 40 year old princess.  My skirt is an oldy but worthy of closet space.  Some pieces I just can't justify donating or getting rid off even though I don't wear them all the time because they always make a statement and are so easy to dress up or down when needed; that's this pleated pink skirt!  However the white bodysuit is new and fits like a glove, I am wearing a medium for reference.  Add a cute little purse and some gold jewelry and you are all ready to head out without really needing a whole lot.  I had my jean jacket in tow just in case it got cool, but a little white blazer or a lovely scarf would do the trick just as well.  

What's a piece of clothing in you closet that you've had for years but it's too good to get rid of?
