I see a lot of you already packed your shorts away, but mine are here for a lot longer, though thankfully  temps have dropped, allowing me the wear of this "scarf" that's actually a blanket. It's so soft and large that I couldn't help but want to drape it on me. The coolest part is that is handwoven in Ethiopia by incredible, hardworking, heroic women who are able to put their kids in school through this FashionABLE program; and it makes me scream with joy inside to know women across the world are busting their butts to make a difference in their worlds.

Oasap Blouse / Express Jeans / Stuart Weitzman Burgundy Heels  / Gucci Bag 
This burgundy color is so Fall appropriate, that I played it up casually from head to toe. These calf hair pumps are some of my favorite, and I have worn them several times; with grey, navy, olive, and now with denim. This outfit is easily replicable, which is what I like about it. I can do it over and over with different blouses and heels.

Sneakers Galore

Style Mafia Shorts (on sale) / Lulus sweater  / Balenciaga bag /  Stila "olivia" lips / Nike sneakers
I love a good black and white ensemble, and this one comes to you from one of my friend's own line! So cool to wear something of hers. Style Mafia is local, and also online, and they have some extremely unique and affordable pieces! 
I have been on the hunt for black sneakers for a long time, and while I was at Sawgrass Mills the other day, I ran by the Nike outlet and found these on a major sale! Ever since I traveled to Vegas last month, my feet have been bleeding every so often due to the ungodly amount of blisters from heels and hard flats. Believe it or not, I get more blisters from my flats than I do from my heels. But knowing that I need to let my feet rest while they heal, these sneakers came at an opportune time, and boy have I gotten my use out of them. Suddenly I'm trying to convince myself that they rock with a cocktail dress. ;)

Sticking Out

Chicwish Skirt / Blue pumps / Gucci sunglasses / Stila "fiore" / Outfit on WEAR
I wore this getup to a charity event last week, where most people were three times my senior and wearing black. I had no problem sticking out like a sore thumb in my floral, pink and poofy skirt. I also posted it on WEAR, which I've been using for Inspiration, as it is a shoppable lookbook where users can get inspired from styles created by the community, and international trendsetters; as well as being able to shop the looks. You can post a photo of your outfit, make it shoppable by selecting what you're wearing, and it will show you how other women around the world styled those items. The community also helps you shop/style, so if you post an item, people can vote and comment. (Which I love for when I'm shopping solo).They are partnered with Nylon Magazine too, so by signing up, you not only can get inspired/shop on the site, but post your own looks and have the chance to be featured with a blogger on NYLON next month! 

Thanks to WEAR for bringing this post to The Chiffon Diary. All opinions are my own.
