WHAT I WANT NOW: TRANSITIONAL PIECES TO WEAR NOW AND LATER


Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Time is flying by so fast that Fall will be here before you know it. While trying to snatch up a few goodies from all the major summer clearance sales, I have my eye on a few new pieces that I can wear now and enjoy the remaining days of summer as well as wear them later when the weather becomes a little more cooler.

I love this Fashion to Figure draped pocket dress because of the bold orange color and elbow length sleeves. At $28 it's the perfect end of summer dress when the humidity is gone and temperatures are no higher than 75 degrees. I would rock it with a pair of fuchsia peep toe patent leather pumps and a bold necklace for now and for later when the temps are cooler I would throw on a pair of sheer stockings and suede ankle boots topped with a caped trench.


Many people sleep on Old Navy. I for one don't. As I told you guys last year, Old Navy has really been stepping it up in the style section. No, not everything is a winner, but every now and again they produce a few items that you just can't pass up. For instance this army green utility vest is the perfect transitional piece from summer to fall. While the weather is still warm you can rock this vest with shorts, colored skinnies, or with a midi skirt and for later you can use it as a layering piece over long sleeve t-shirts, turtlenecks, and dresses.



Cardigans are season less. I love wearing them on cool summer days. This See by Chloe gold button deep v cardigan has a hint of sexiness to it. For now I would rock it with a pair of platform chunky heeled sandals and white skinnies and for later since it is a long cardi I would throw it on with leggings and tall boots.


This Michael Kors striped dress is the perfect casual day dress. Push the sleeves up and throw on a pair of cute wedges or ballet flats and a multi chain necklace for now and later take it up a notch by pairing it with a khaki trench coat or even a leather biker jacket for a chic look.


Last Fall red was a popular color for the season. This year I plan to incorporate a pair of red jeans into my wardrobe. It's a great color for creating color block looks. These red skinnies from ASOS Curve would look great paired with neutral colored flowy bohemian tops and dark brown chunky sandals and for later a hip length navy pea coat would create a sailor chic look.

I adore this sheer lace detailed black dress from Simply Be. Although I like my night looks to be fitted and curve hugging, this dress has an understated sexiness to it. It's perfect for dinner with the girls. The lace and sheer details are ultra feminine. For now it would call for a pair of bow front glittered slingbacks, and for later I would rock it with a pair of patterned tights, ankle boots, and a faux fur vest. The dress is a steal for $34.

There you have it. These are the pieces I am coveting to wear now and later.

What are some things you are looking to buy to prepare you for fall?

Ooh, I love your picks! Especially, the dress with the pockets (obsessed with pockets, right now) and the Michael Kors dress (obsessed with Michael Kors,always).
