Transitional Fall Clothing!
If you live anywhere on the East Coast, you know that the weather has been crazy for the past couple of days. One day a sweater is needed for 50-degree weather and the next you are going bare leg in 80-degree weather. As the season changes, it is important to have clothing items that can be worn in more than one season.This week it has been unseasonably warm for mid-October, so I wanted to dress for the weather, but also for the time of year. I have packed up all my sandals and maxi dresses for the year, but I also have a few pieces, such as denim shirts and dresses and African print skirts. With the proper accessories, you will still be cool and fashionable.
Last weekend, I rediscovered a unique pair of reverse dye socks from Unitees in Washington, DC. Each pair of hand dyed socks have tons of personality and can be worn with almost anything. I decided to pair mine with a denim shirt dress, chunky accessories and red chucks. The addition of the socks made my outfit eclectic and show stopping. I will definitely be visiting Unitees for more socks.

I am friends with some of the best designers in the world. Fearless Threads is a wonderful brand that brings the most colorful and functional African inspired clothing and accessories to the DC community. A few weeks ago, I purchased a beautiful midi skirt from Naima and wore it today. My absolute favorite feature are the deep pockets that are essential with any dress or skirt these days. I paired the skirt with a light denim shirt along with nude flats and unique hoop earrings. I felt cute and comfortable for the work place.
