It’s almost the middle of September and I wish (just kidding!) I could say that I’m starting to feel fall coming on. Truth is, in the Sunshine State–fall is a state of mind rather than a season. It continues to be absolutely gorgeous and the weather is staying true to the 90s. And while it is sweltering at times, I can’t say that I’m one to complain. Relaxing in the pool is a rare pleasure enjoyed by Northerners about twice a year when we’re trying to dodge the incoming rain storms. Lucky us.
Down here, we’ve been enjoying baking in the sun and laying out by the pool far longer than we’re used to. It’s nice sometimes to learn how to slow down and stop to smell the roses, so to speak. It’s been an eye-opening experience for me. Being down here has definitely taught me to relax and be confident in my abilities. I can’t quite explain how but the way of life down here and its accepting nature have been good for me to say the least.
This is the outfit I wore to work today. I just found this peplum pencil skirt at a local Plato’s Closet in Orlando and fell in love with its unique style and bright color! It’s made by Express and the vibrant red is a color I’ve been searching for for quite some time now. Ever notice how red is empowering and makes you feel awake and alive? That’s what it does for me at least! I decided to pair this Limited brand ruffled collar tank with a denim blazer. To mix prints, I wanted to add metallic cap toe flats with stripes from Forever 21.
