As a proclaimed Fashionista, Fall wear is my favorite season. I love the coats, I love the layers, from the boots to the scarves and every accessory in between, this is my favorite season of dress. But as we are in those transitional months, our wardrobe can get confused; as the weather outside is still adjusting so will our clothes. Her are three key things great to get you through the transition to fall.
1: The denim jacket: Keeping a denim jacket in your closet is always a good thing to have. It’s not too light, but not too thick. It can be worn with so many different outfits, but my favorite pairing is with a dress. The denim jacket keeps things casual, keeps things cool, and most of all lasts a long time. I’ve had this denim jacket for over 10 years and it still looks good! Denim is so durable, so versatile that it only makes sense to keep this item on had during these in between months.
2: A lightweight scarf: Scarves are probably one of my favorite winter wear. It makes a look change in an instant adding a sense of style, pop of color and can be worn so many differ ways. I especially like to wear a scarf during this time of year since there’s a slight chill, but still warm, all I need is a scarf and I am good to go. Pick a linen, cotton, silk material to keep it still light, saving the wool scarves for the really cold months.
3: Cutout booties: This trend has been hot hot hot. It’s a version of a bootie where there are cutouts, allowing you to wear it without socks, keeping your feet cool and comfortable. I love this style of booties. It makes it so easy to wear, looks like you are ready for fall, and can be worn so many different ways. I’ve been wearing these on repeat and will definitely be wearing them through fall. Love them!!!
While the weather is changing, and mornings and nights are cooler, these are my top key pieces to keep you looking fabulous and stylish through these next transitional months. Shop some pieces below!

The connection was there, Koa wood was such a huge part of my childhood that I knew this was the perfect watch for me.
This beautiful piece is lightweight, delicate and feminine. My exact piece is paired with a rose gold face with Swarovski crystal markers all around. My model uses a movement feature that uses a self-winding automatic system that requires no batteries. Simple and stunning, this combination has found its way fitting perfect into my wardrobe and complimenting me for my everyday life.

Today at This Love Life I’m giving you a casual chic look perfect for those upcoming bbq/football parties, or a causal day out. When I think of casual chic looks I think of two items; one casual and one chic. This look simply puts the two together. This dress is what I would classify as a dressier dress, whereas the denim vest pulls off the casual look just fine. Pair these two together and you have an instant look to take you through the day looking effortless and chic.
I sometimes steer away from wearing these types of dresses during they day as I worry that it is too dressy for a days activity. So to solve this, I always like to pair it with something super casual creating juxtaposition, making for something so opposite, feel so right. A denim jacket/vest is a great staple to have, it’s so simple yet so versatile.
Paired with a simple hairdo, simple makeup and simple wedge heels, this look is super fun, super casual, making it the go to for any bbqs or parties you have ahead for the year. As we soak up the last bits of summer left, I’m getting in all the light summer wear I can. Next you’ll start to see more transitional looks getting ready for that cooler weather as the season starts to change. Fall is on the horizon, but for now, enjoy this great everyday casual chic look!
Backpacks are not just for back to school anymore. They can be stylish and trendy in their own ways. Adding a backpack to your outfit makes the look youthful, playful, and most of all cool. I like to use mine most of the time when I travel. It gives me a hands free option able to hold both kids hands at the same time, and not worry about my purse getting in the way.
This trendy backpack is what I use when I know I want to consolidate my belongings and my kid’s items in one bag. A backpack can look and blend well with your stylish look with these key things to remember.
Material. Find a backpack that is made in a trendy fabric. This will make it look in season, following the trending style at that moment.
Color. A fun way to keep backpacks from looking boring is adding it in a bright color. It is in fact an accessory piece, so a bright red or white will make your outfit pop! Or you can't go wrong with a good classic black!
Type. Go for the non-backpack, backpack. Meaning look for a backpack that is more like a purse. All the luxury designer brands such as Chanel and Louis Vuitton have had much success with the launch of their backpack purses in their collection. Look for one that has a ‘handbag’ feel, but is still in fact a backpack.
Backpacks can be cool, especially for us fashionista’s out there. It’s nice to have something different than a handbag everyday. It gives your outfit an entire different feel, creating something that is out of the ordinary and trending these past few seasons.
Here are some of my favorite options:
