With fall quickly approaching, I find myself getting more and more excited about the cooler weather, the pumpkin spice lattes (so cliche, I know), and especially fall fashion. Nothing excites me more than boots, light layers, and fall colors!

Today’s outfit is one way you can transition your summer top into the next season. This lacey white top with flounce sleeves is perfect for summer, and can be paired with jean shorts or tucked into your favorite blue or black denim. I’m also wearing these gorgeous aubergine colored sandals that are great for both summer and fall. Simply throw on a trench when it gets chilly at night for an effortlessly chic fall look!

These items are selling fast so I will try my best to list similar pieces as always!

Being a woman can be so fabulous with the clothes, shoes, makeup, bags, etc., but it’s not all glitz and glam. That’s right –  I’m talking about our periods, ladies. I’m sure like most women out there, I dread that time of the month when I look and feel bloated, eat the worst of the worst junk food, and cry for absolutely no reason at all.

Luckily we at least have what seems like an endless aisle of period products to choose from, and there really is something for everyone. Can you imagine only having limited access to those products? It’s a horrid thought, right? Well, that’s actually a reality to many of the 3.5 million homeless Americans who, each year, have limited access and few places to turn for feminine products. That’s why when Holly Sanchez tweeted about this very topic, DoSomething.org and U by Kotex teamed up with Holly to create the Power to the Period drive and encourage others to buy and donate extra period products to homeless shelters.

If you’re interested in joining the Period Project, here are some ways you can get involved:

  • Start a Power to the Period donation drive in your school or community
  • Donate new, unopened boxes of period products to a drive in your area until Friday, September 30, 2016.
  • Visit UbyKotex.com, DoSomething.org/Period or text PERIOD to 38383 for more info on getting involved.
  • Join the online conversation with #PeriodProjects

*Please only donate unopened packages of period products, as opposed to individually wrapped items to ensure hygiene and intact instructions on the box.

Outfit Details:

I love the look of a sweater over a button up, but dislike the bulk and how uncomfortable it is, which is why I just about jumped for joy when I saw this sweater. This ribbed sweater has a woven shirttail, so you get the chic layered look without any of the bulk! Also, this is my first time purchasing jeans from Topshop and I am completely hooked! They’re surprisingly really comfortable to wear and hug your curves in all the right places. I also love that they have shorter hems for petites, so these ankle length jeans are actually ankle length 🙂

Here’s a quick casual yet classic outfit of the day for y’all featuring this striped blouse with a frilled hem and 3/4 sleeves. I paired this top with distressed denim shorts, a white blazer, and white loafers that fold in the back! Quick disclaimer: this blouse is on sale for $20 but very limited in sizes, so I’ll be sure to link similar tops!

Graphic Tee and Zippered Mini Skirt

I picked up this edgy, flirty zippered mini skirt from Zara during their huge sale and I’m obsessed with the unique asymmetrical zipper that goes down the front. The skirt is only available in size small (on sale for $10) at the moment, but I will be linking similar styles as always! I also stumbled upon a website called Rad that is filled with a bunch of graphic tees, hoodies, accessories, etc. This tee I’m wearing caught my eye because it is so similar to the Comme des Garçons tees that cost about a hundred dollars a piece , but I can never justify spending that much on a tee (even though the fabric is probably out of this world). To continue with the edgy, laid back theme of today’s outfit, I accessorized with a bandana around the neck and simple black sneakers.

Midi Skirt and Loafers

I’ve been loving the gloomy weather lately because it gives me a break from the hot, hot sun and allows me to wear leather jackets again. I paired the leather jacket with a basic white cami, pink midi skirt, and white loafers. I had to be put on a waitlist for Mango to restock these loafers (most sizes are out of stock again), but it is so worth the wait! They’re half off the original price with a super clean, chic design. The best part is that the back folds in at the heels so you can wear them as normal loafers (as shown in the pictures) or folded as trendy, backless slides all the fashion savvy people are wearing.
