Fall is coming and it’s time to begin the wardrobe transition process. I’ve found myself looking past all of the summery items hanging on the racks at my favorite stores because I know it’s just a waste to purchase anything summery this late into the summer (unless it’s on a killer sale).

Instead, I’ve been gravitating towards transitional pieces like the Calvin Klein crop I’m picture wearing above. As you can see, this pairs perfectly with a summery skirt and lace up heels, but can also be worn this fall with a pair of high-waisted jeans and ankle boots.

I’m going to be doing a post with all of my fall picks, but in the meantime, you can shop this look below!

I have a confession, I’m obsessed with getting my hair done. From blowouts to lightening it to keeping my ends healthy – I love it all! That said, it’s been a long journey for me to find the perfect salon.

As a little history, I’ve been balayaging (a technique of hair painting) my hair for about 3 years now and have had some great and some not-so-great hair moments. Since my hair is naturally so dark, it’s been hard to find the perfect stylist that can make my hair the right tone without making it too warm or brassy looking.

What the Cast Members of ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Are Wearing

It’s no secret that I love The Bachelor/Bachelorette, but my ultimate guilty pleasure? Bachelor in Paradise! The show is just too good not to watch and I especially love seeing the cute outfits all of the female contestants sport each week. From Amanda Stanton to Sarah Herron to Emily and Haley Gerguson (the twins), I think we can all agree there’s some major fashion-envy going on.

That said, I’ve rounded up some of the must-have looks from this season and will continue to do so all season long! Since so many of you loved my “Everything Jojo wore on ‘The Bachelorette’” post, I figured I’ll keep it going! Let me know your thoughts in the comment section below!
