Growing up in any city will impact your style and fashion choices. Some will wear thicker clothes in colder places while others will live in shorts and bikinis like we do here in Florida. Although Florida is not a fashion captial there is such a variety of unique styles that resonates here. From chic to urban, vintage and trendy you can find all sorts of fashion here.
Growing up in Florida, I’m very much use to our beautiful spring weather, scorching summer heat, perfect beach weather during fall and winter weather that last for about 10 days. There have been numerous times where I can head to the beach in October or November for a beautiful 70 degree beach day and come home with an awesome tan! What can I say, it’s one of the perks. Which is why most of us Floridian’s live in our shorts, tanks or boho-chic style clothing, linens etc. There is no need for layers or heavy clothing. I can’t even tell you the last time I purchased a sweater or some sort of boots.
Although Florida doesn’t get cold during fall *thank the Lord* we still get to indulge in some light fall weather and slowly transition our wardrobe as necessary. Now this transition isn’t drastic. No need for long winter coats or a collection of winter boots, maybe some long sleeve tops, a cardigan, some scarves and some cute ankle boots, boots that you could easily transition back into your normal wear of course. But where we lack in clothing options, we can make up in colors. Since fall is approaching you can still feel trendy by wearing more fall colored clothing. My favorite colors to wear for fall are olive green, deep reds, nudes, dark denims and black of course.
I have partnered with Old Navy to share with you how my hometown, Florida, has made an impact on my style especially during the fall. I reside in Miami, FL which as you can see on a map is at the bottom of Florida which means of all the places, we are one of the hottest. So this Miami weather calls for breathable clothing, nothing skin tight, warm colors so you don’t attract more sunlight and comfort is a must! I chose this olive green dress as a perfect fall transition outfit. It has longer sleeves in case it’s a bit chilly out, very breathable material and the length of the dress doesn’t hug, giving me a boho style feel while keeping me very comfy.
