The summer is still hanging on strong with 90 degree weather all week, but with back to school commercials on heavy rotation, layered looks appearing in my dreams, and the long awaited NYFW I cant help but sing this coming season praises. I confess my love proudly of leaves changing colors, crisp breezes and need for overpoweringly chunky Lenny Kravitz scarves. I’ve been transitioning everything from my beauty products, to my staple Starbucks drinks giving way to pumpkin spiced lattes (STARTING SEPT 8th ), and of course my wardrobe evolving from light weight items to long sleeves and heavy knits.
I use to struggle with finding items to cover my long limbs while fitting my shape which I can thank my blessed southern genes and love of biscuits for. Most of the taller women I know have to find items that fit their curves too and I love that Long Tall Sally understands and create pieces that fill that gap. The thunder thighs I once tried to hide are now one of my favorite body parts, and the Supersoft Legging Jeans fit like a glove. Extremely comfortable, durable and easy to wear I put on my booties and light weight checked white long sleeve top to elevate my look.
Over the summer I took time to meet new people, discover new places, and just enjoy the fruits of the world around me. I took time to get to know myself better, find other creatives looking to push their brand to new heights, and been putting in the foot work it takes to bring my dreams to reality. The love of family and friends have encouraged me to let go of myself imposed limitations and has shown me that all of my goals are closer than they appear. I’m entering the Fall season filled with motivated, uplifted, and being confident in the strong woman I am.
What are you looking forward to this Fall?
