From Rompers to Jumpsuits

Cheap Prom Dresses

My summer uniform - that is basically what I've dubbed rompers as. But when the weather transitions to become slightly colder, it is important to give an update to my so-called uniform. One way to do that is to update into a jumpsuit. I admit: I am slightly intimidated by the idea of wearing jumpsuits, but I also felt the same way about rompers initially. Hence, I am excited to finally give it a try especially after I've seen a few cute ones from Mod & Soul and StyleWe. In particular, StyleWe is one website that I just recently discovered and is now gaining attention in the world of online shopping. You can check out various styles from multiple designers - so there are plenty to choose from!

Shades of Blue Jumpsuit
Pinstriped Jumpsuit
Irena Jumpsuit
Rust Halter Culotte Jumpsuit
Vivian Print Jumpsuit

Which of these jumpsuits should I get?

Flower Power

Top: Shein
Bag: Deux Lux
Pants: Lee Jeans

Shoes: Sam Edelman c/o Shopbop (similar)
Tote: Deux Lux c/o Shopbop
Watch: JORD (c/o)
Earrings: Adia Kibur c/o Shopbop 

The off-shoulder is unquestionably the biggest trend of the season. I am a huge fan of this trend - there is basically no off-shoulder piece (dress or top) that I've seen that I did not love. So I decided that I should try it out for myself, too. I was lucky enough to find this gorgeous floral off-shoulder top from Shein. I knew that if I was going to get one that it would be a floral print and seeing that this was less than $10, I couldn't have added this to my cart fast enough.

Top: Shein
Pants: Lee Jeans
Shoes: Sam Edelman c/o Shopbop (similar)
Tote: Deux Lux c/o Shopbop
Watch: JORD (c/o)
Earrings: Adia Kibur c/o Shopbop 

I wanted for the top to be the focal point of this look so I wore it with my classic skinny jeans, a basic black tote and my reliable JORD watch. A pop of color from my Sam Edelman Rae suede flats provided a great balance in color and texture to the outfit. Love this top? Make sure to get it while it is still available for only $7!

But before I get ahead of myself, I just wanted to make a quick post to update you on the best shoe trends for fall.

When talking about timeless prints, there is one that rules them all: stripes. It never goes out of style and is never redundant. Over the past few years, there have been many stripes styles that have emerged further cementing its status as a classic pattern. And you probably can tell that I love this pattern so much judging by the many looks I've featured showcasing stripes (see here, here and here)! And today, you can add another one to the list...

I got this striped maxi dress from Rosegal since I was searching for a comfortable tank maxi dress to wear to an upcoming vacation in Southeast Asia. And anyone whose explored Southeast Asia knows how punishing the heat can get. Hence, I am gathering items that are easy to wear and helps to keep me fresh when I am out and about! I am not going to spill any details yet as to where we are going, but I will be sharing some glimpses in the future! I am just so happy that this dress was as comfortable and refreshing as can be, so this will definitely be making it to my packing list.

As part of the Trend Spin linkup today, I am excited to see your striped pieces! Be sure to linkup below!
