Cotton Breeze – OOTD 8

Top: 5 & Below | Bottoms: Uniqlo | Bag: Dot Reeder

Transition outfits are definitely coming into effect whether we like it or not.. (sigh), BUT style doesn’t stop there !

Styling Tips:

  1. When wearing pants towards the end of summer, try to go for all linen or 100% cotton. You won’t be too hot, however covered up enough to enjoy a semi-cool breeze.
  2. Meditate, because fall and winter is coming so I know you’re going to be stressing a bit.
  3. Wide cotton or linen pants pairs best with a t-shirt, crop top or ripped jean cropped jackets to off balance the wide pants size and show off your waist. The pants forces the “hour glass” shape.
  4. For shoes, a platform sandal, flat sandal, wedge or heel works best. Bulky heavy boots will show an off balance of textures and sneakers that are not high tops is another alternative.

The Chic Jumpsuit – OOTD 6

@ashadah

Drop – Dead – Gorgeous is the right term for this lovely piece of fine cotton. This jumpsuit was from Dot Reeder boutique in Montclair, NJ; designer is Apiece Apart based out of New York.


Ladies, I did not need a bra for this one, and the silhouette hits all of the right places if you’re 5’9″ like me. In these photos I am wearing a size 8.

The sleeves are puffed and airy, the suit comes with a belt to tie beneath the asymmetrical neckline and POCKETS! Who doesn’t love pockets?

Face & Foot Tips:

Makeup for this outfit would be something very light in the red and peachy spectrum. Experiment with warm tones, brighten the cheeks, light lipstick or gloss, and shimmery shadows.

Footwear for this outfit will go great with silver, nude or a suede heel, sandal and if you’re bold….a silver sneaker!

Until Next Time, Ashadah Austin
