Now + Later: Purple Skirt

I am a huge fan of things you can wear now and later…especially when that “later” is during the transitional period (in Kansas) when fall is here, yet the temperatures are still in the high 70s! This little purple vegan leather mini skirt is literally the perfect now and later addition to my wardrobe! The possibilities with this skirt for now and into the fall and winter are endless. I’m imagining tights, a turtleneck, and a chunky heeled knee-boot with this for the winter.

For now I love the skirt with a metallic heeled sandal and a breezy white feminine sleeveless top.


And later I will pair it a colorful fall top and some cute little cognac booties.

If you haven’t ever owned a pair of Dizzy Sandals, you have to get a pair today! They are absolutely amazing, comfortable, and under $30! I love my pair that are nude with bows on the toes! They literally go with everything and have quickly become my go-to sandals for daytime this summer.

For those of you that know me, you know that my hair is usually a hot mess. During the winter, it’s nearly impossible to style without the help of the masters at DryBar or Parlor KC. In the summer, I’m usually in the pool or working out, so I don’t bother styling it at all. Insert: fatboy. Fatboy Hair’s “Tough Guy Water Wax” (black tub) is what keeps the Kardashian’s signature low bun or ponytail so sleek! This stuff is a staple when it comes to keeping up with the Kardashians. But, what is in the white tub you might ask? Fatboy Hair’s Sea Salt Pomade, and by adding this great “just out of the sea” texture, it keeps this beach wavin’ hair of mine going strong ALL DAY LONG. Bonus: It’s made with Shea Butter and Coconut oil to nourish the hair and smell great as well. I am so impressed with both products and highly recommend them to anyone who is in need of a little extra styling when it comes to your hair.

It’s been awhile since the sun has been out in downtown Kansas City, but today in the River Market, with the chill hanging in the air, the sun was shining. This Gerry coat kept me warm during and in between shots. I love the bold colors that are on the coat, and I especially loved that the yoga pants blending nicely with the purple hue of the Gerry coat.
