Fall Style Options for Warm Climates

Fall Style Options for Warm Climates

Thanks to JORD Wood Watches for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.

Fall is definitely my favorite time of year. The leaves changing, cooler temperatures, and of course the fashion! Wait, I must be referring to another place and time because here in South Florida all of the above are non-existent. It’s hurricane season during the fall here in Boca Raton, so the only leaves changing are the dead ones on trees that have fallen down during hurricane Irma.

Temps are well in the eighties and nineties making fall staples like boots, jackets, and hats off-limits. Unless sweat is the new black..

Fall Style Options

While all of this fun fashion is off-limits in a warm climate, there are ways that you can express your love for fall. Aside from the obvious pumpkin indulgence every now and again.

  1. Warm Tones – There is plenty that can be conveyed by changing your color palette. Gone are the bright blues, white, and hot pink (hey, whatever floats your summer boat). As soon as September 1st hits I change my polish to the darker jeweled tones of the fall. Muted amber tones usher in a whole new feeling and can help you to fake the funk in a tropical climate. Fall Style Options
  2. Texture is Everything – While it isn’t a good idea to embrace wool or velvet, there are other ways you can invite texture into your wardrobe. Accessories are a great way to invite texture. Wooden watches are all the rage right now and make for the perfect fall accessory. JORD Wood Watches have a variety of watches with tons of great color combinations. Pairing a wooden watch with your lightweight wardrobe provides the balance you seek when showing off your inner pumpkin spice. Fall Style Options
  3. Layers – Long sleeves and jackets are a no/no in September in South Florida, so I usually opt for a short sleeve or tank top with a pair of jeans or shorts. However, that doesn’t mean I can’t add some pops of fall color in layers. These light-weight scarves are just the ticket to feeling like you’ve truly entered into Autumn. Fall Style Options

It may not give you that Autumn in Central Park vibe, but it’s enough to get you started. Relax Floridians, you may get a breeze in December.

Fret not my friends, JORD Wood Watches is giving away a $100 and a $25 coupon code to my lucky readers. All you have to do is enter the giveaway here.

There are few things I love more than a good deal. Pair that good deal with incredible comfort, classic style, and sustainable material that doesn’t leave a huge footprint on the earth and I’m pretty much in heaven (thanks to prAna Activewear).

I recently had a discussion with some friends about the definition of feeling sexy. These days comfort is sexy to me. As I’ve grown more comfortable in my skin I realize that nothing feels better than feeling like myself. I like the skin I’m in, and it doesn’t mean I need to show it every chance I get. A classic laid-back style is more my vibe. You add some comfort and we’ve got ourselves a night out on the town.

With the kids in school longer hours these days I no longer roam Boca Raton in what I once dubbed “homeless chic.” With the quality clothing from prAna clothing I’ve come to enjoy piecing together a modern activewear ensemble that can take me from morning until dinner time. That’s a big deal for this mom of two boys.

Prana Activewear

prAna’s mission is to give people the option of reaching into their closet and dressing in items that reflect who they are. The versatile but classy clothing design makes for outfits that can be worn to work or on an adventure. Whether you’re running errands, picking up the kids from school, or meeting friends for coffee, prAna clothing is tested for comfort in any situation (especially outdoors). These Charcoal Jogger Pants are the perfect pant this fall in our warm climate. The light material kept me cool while getting me through the day. I loved pairing it with the Daria Sweater Hoodie (also fairly lightweight). The “bat-wing” style is modern and comfortable. I pretty much live in my sneakers these days, but this could easily pair well with a cute casual pair of booties.

prAna is offering my readers a 15% off coupon when you order online using the code: MS15EV! Now you too can start your activewear collection to carry you through till winter! Every purchase you make and every gift you give has a positive impact on our planet. prAna offers organic, hemp, sustainable, and fair trade items so that you can feel great about the things you wear and the gifts you give. It’s clothing with a conscious.

Essential Planning with Samsung Galaxy S8

Planning can be arduous for some, I used to be an uber planner, these days I’ve learned to keep a healthy balance. Summer in South Florida comes with a few different types of planning.

Back To School with Samsung Galaxy GS8

All of the supplies, equipment purchases, and of course the new-found pressure to nail the infamous first day pic. It’s enough to keep your head spinning! These days my life consists of the simplest methods to achieve what it is that matters to our family, and that’s time together. The less time spent trying to run around like a chicken with its head cut off, the more I’ll have to spend those precious last moments with the kids.

Samsung

For these devices, wireless services are available on GSM networks such as AT&T and T-Mobile and CDMA networks such as Verizon, Sprint, and US Cellular®. Visit www.samsung.com for more information on your device. Support for certain features and services such as VoWiFi and hotspot, vary by wireless service provider. Wireless voice, data and messaging services on Samsung Unlocked Galaxy S6 and Galaxy J3 devices are compatible with most major U.S. GSM networks. For these devices, wireless services are available on GSM networks such as AT&T and T-Mobile. Visit www.samsung.com for more information on your device. Support for certain features and services such as VoWiFi and hotspot, vary by wireless service provider. SIM card must be compatible with area’s available networks. International calling, data services and coverage vary by network provider. Contact provider for details.

The new Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8 has kept me on track this back to school season. The convenient scheduling apps (fewer pre-loaded apps makes this convenient) available and reminder settings helped to keep me right on track. Having an unlocked option made this a simple purchase online at Walmart.com. Since the phone is available for purchase unlocked, you can just call and add it to your existing plan.

Back To School with Samsung
This Samsung Unlocked phone will work on any GSM or CDMA compatible network. For these devices, wireless services are available on GSM networks such as AT&T and T-Mobile and CDMA networks such as Verizon, Sprint, US Cellular®.

International calling, data services and coverage vary by network provider. Contact provider for details.

Let’s not forget the 12 megapixel camera and the first-ever Infinity Screen! The Galaxy S8 display stretches from edge to edge giving you the most amount of screen in the least amount of space making those back to school photos a cinch on the first try (well, it won’t guarantee a smile).

Hurricane Prep with Samsung Galaxy GS8

Another way to prep in South Florida is for the peak of hurricane season (September). Floridians spend hours downloading apps and getting storm tracking updates to stay ahead of the storm (so to speak) and brace for impact. These imperative online updates are the very life source for residents of the southern states. They allow us all to prepare to our best ability and stock up on non-perishables to sustain us.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 Unlocked made it easy to switch phones and add to my existing plan effortlessly. With this new unlocked option purchase (online only) you can choose your carrier, data plan, services, features and apps, so you can get your phone exactly the way you want it. The Samsung GS8 and Samsung GS8+ are only available online. I’m currently using it to track Hurricane Irma so we can stay put to ride out the storm.

The water-resistant feature makes this phone optimal for our rainiest season. With an IP68 water-resistant rating, it can resist a splash or accidental dunk. With Walmart’s easy online ordering you can have an unlocked Samsung at your doorsteps in your favorite color within 3-5 business days (my favorite was the Orchid Gray).
