Transitioning Your Crop Tops for Fall

 

 

Fall is Coming

And it is my favorite season in terms of fashion. However, I was not quite ready to put away my beloved crop tops, so here is an outfit that utilizes this basic black crop top in a more autumn appropriate style.
One of the easiest ways to wear crop tops in a cooler season is to pair them with high-waisted pants, so you’re able to cover a more skin.
I paired this crop top with a pair of high-waisted, flared pants that I thrifted (no surprise there) and some matching heeled sandals. This is an all black look, but the slight skin peaking on the torso separates the top from the bottom so it doesn’t look like one big blob. To add some color and life into the outfit, I layered this cropped, raw edge mustard jacket on top. I absolutely love this color and I think it is an amazing color to bring out for autumn!

From Dress to Kimono

The Trend:
My Look:

Happy Monday, babes! I have been seeing a lot of outfits featured around the kimono on Pinterest a lot lately. A couple of weeks ago,  I found this long, printed dress at the thrift store. It is originally from Sparkle and Fade which is found at Urban Outfits and is meant to be worn buttoned up. However, since it’s two sizes too big, I thought it would make a great outerwear piece when left unbuttoned. I wanted to play with different heights, so I wore it with a lace crop top and my denim skirt from DSTLD (You can get 10% off your order with the code ‘enclothedcognition’).

I love this kimono because of the neutral pattern and how it makes it so easy to pair with a lot of items. Last week, I styled it the same way, but I replaced the denim skirt with jeans. Thus, this outfit is easily transferable to autumn, making it an ultimate must have for your wardrobe right now. Shop some of my favorite kimonos right now:

Cozy Life

Happy Wednesday!! 1 day away until we can stuff our faces all day long with a valid excuse, haha. What are your Thanksgiving plans? I am going to my grandparents for lunch and than my uncle’s for dinner aka nothing but eating and indulging, but that’s what the holiday is all about, right?

I am grateful that in the streetwear world, track pants are fashion forward! I recently picked these up from H&M and they are so comfortable to wear. I paired it with a tight crop top so it could balance the whole look out and I don’t look too lost, especially with my XL bomber jacket layered on top. Ya honestly cannot get much more cozy after this!

Also, grateful for all of you guys who continually read my blog posts. I hope everyone celebrating Thanksgiving has a safe & enjoyable day. May the tryptophan not hit you too hard! <3

It’s a State of Mind

Happy humpday, lovelies. For my new readers, do you know why I chose the name, Enclothed Cognition, as the title of my blog? Enclothed cognition is the idea that what we wear greatly affects our mood and outlook. Thus, if we wear what we love and feel confident in, our mood will reflect this and has a much more positive impact on your daily life. So, girl if you feel comfortable in that crop top and heels or those sweatpants and baseball cap, do not worry about what anyone else is going to think of it and just worry about slaaaying!
Today’s outfit features my two favorite colors to wear: black and tan. I was actually just running errands on this day and was like is this too much? Never. This entire outfit is comprised of some of my favorite things to wear right now: long duster, crop top, joggers, and sock boots! Definitely got a couple of strange looks from some people in the food store, but  ¯_(ツ)_/¯.

Sweater Weather

I rarely ever shoot from my bedroom due to its awkward layout, but on this day I was so attracted to the gentle light streaming through my window, I just had to. I wore this to work for a comfortable, casual look. This sweater is different from all the ones that I own thanks to its feminine structure. Absolutely love the mock neck and the endearing way the sleeves puff out. I paired it with some white denim to complete the entire look.

Lastly, I just want to end with some encouragement to get out and vote tomorrow! From my perspective, our political environment is on the brink of embarrassment and failure (if we have not reached it already) and a vote is a simple way to let your voice be heard.
