Fun with Fashion (July - Sept.)
Hi BFFs and welcome to another 'Fun with Fashion' segment. As you might know, in this segment I cover most of the fashions I've been wearing on my Instagram over the past couple of months. In many parts of the US and the world, it's getting chillier and the temperatures drop. Not here.... I live in sunny California and well, today it's 103 degrees Fahrenheit. So much for the chilly fall weather. Honestly, I cannot wait for it to start getting cooler, because my fuzzy boots and warm scarves are calling my name from my closet. After a long summer, I enjoy changing it up with some warm-weather clothes. Keep in mind gals... As the weather gets cooler, you might also want to adjust your makeup colors. Oooh, I'm getting major inspo for a Fall Makeup video right now. Rather than blabbing your ears off, let's check out some of the signature summer pieces I've worn.
Romper's a Must!
Just call me the romper queen. Whenever the weather heats up, I know there's a romper somewhere calling my name. I must've bought about five different ones this summer. Not only are they comfortable (which is a must for me!) they also eliminate the worry of what to wear on top. It's your bottom and top in one! The one in this photo is super comfy and I could easily sleep in it. To dress it up a little bit, I added a cute ring belt. I've also worn this romper with a checkered shirt tied around my waist and my Superstar Adidas kicks. Kim Tip: Don't put your rompers in the back of the closet just yet girl! When it gets chilly, just wear it with some tights or thick pantyhose and maybe some cute fuzzy boots. You will steal the show with this whole new look and save yourself some dollars too!
Romper: Charlotte Russe
Statement Tank Tops
In California, tank tops are a must just to stay cool during the hot weather. I was blessed with a collaboration with Ann Arbor T-Shirt Company. They had me pick several of their tank tops and I love every one of them. The one I have on in this pic is my favorite. Each time I wear it, someone asks me it it's my birthday. These tanks have helped me so much during days when I didn't know what to wear, because they are so versatile. I was sent doubles of some of the tanks and I'm not going to lie, the extras are serving as sleeping shirts right now. Girls, if you can sleep in a shirt, you know it's comfy right!

The Sexy Dress
Whether you are going on a date or out for a night on the town... Sometimes you just have to vamp it up and have fun with it. For me, it all depends on my mood (and whether I am having a skinny or bloated day.... ugh... You girls know that monthly bloat I'm talking about). I love a casual comfy look most of the time, but at times, I'll play it up a little. Don't get me wrong... When I say sexy or vampy, I don't mean trashy! There is a fine line and you don't want to cross it. For me, it's all about how you carry yourself, and being classy at all times is essential. For my sexy/vamp look, I like to combine the dress with bright lipstick, big hair and heels or boots (depending on my mood). When your boyfriend or hubby does a double take, you know you did good!
Dress: Windsor Store
Can't Go Wrong with Cameo
I decided to buy a cameo top simply because I am in love with everything cameo. It has something masculine about it, yet comes across ultra feminine. Kinda like a tomboy effect. This vest is easily combined with a long-sleeved top during colder weather and a tank top when it's warm. You can wear it with pants, capris, leggings, shorts, skirts.... Anything really. It's so easy and to top it off, Cameo is good to wear year round. You will probably see many cameo pieces in the stores right now, because they're popular during fall also. You cannot go wrong with it.
Cameo Vest: Papaya
This segment would not be complete with some fabulous athletic clothing. The leggings and grey hoodie top are so pretty, I love them and the quality is on point! I love that you can unzip the sides of the hoodie and let some air in during your workout or during hot weather. Not only that, I love that the company that provided these items combines faith with their athletic wear. Perfect healthy combo if you ask me!
Leggings & Hoodie: Active Faith
I was long overdue for a sports bra, and it's like the team at Kissbobo was aware of that. Their sports bra is so comfy, and allows me to move and swing my arms as wildly as I want without being restrictive. I've worn it to the gym many times, sweated on it, washed it and it's still like new. Talk about a perfect collab!
Girly Summer Tops
Well BFFs, I am closing off this segment with my go-to store Charming Charlie. Each time I'm in the store, I find a top that's just right for me. (Ok, I know, I know, I'm a brand ambassador for them so I am biased) However, as you might have seen on my YouTube, I've been a fan of theirs even before partnering up with them. I love how they have all the colors coordinated in the store. Makes for easy shopping! Right now, I'm planning another CC Haul. It's going to take some planning, but watch my Instagram so you know when the video goes up. I'm getting excited just thinking about it!
