Style

Each season there are classics that stand the test of time regardless of what's in style. This fall, knitwear is back as a major seasonal trend defining fashion and what it means to be cool and comfortable. Unlike years prior, these aren't your ordinary knits. Designers are drastically reinventing this fall essential with a range of on-trend styles and features. Utilizing patterns featuring cutouts, criss-cross halter tops and two-piece sets, these knitted looks are sexier than ever before. Not only is knitwear a must-have because of its ease and comfort, it's the undeniable effortlessly chic that leaves me wanting more.


Whether worn as a dress or head to toe set, there's a knit for every occasion. Until recently, I'd never given knits a try and thought most were a little too frumpy or basic for my liking. Head over heels with the latest styles, a little creativity seemed to be all that was missing. If you're in need of a few edgy looks for fall, tap into these fashion forward knitted looks that will guarantee your hottest fall on record.

Matching two-piece sets surged in popularity this past summer so it's no wonder they're still trending this fall. Two major selling points of this look are the upper waist cutouts on the knit bottoms in addition to the backless feature of its matching cropped cream top. Super sexy yet classy, this effortless two piece outfit serves 360-deliciousness.

As a girl on the go, I love a pair of ultra sleek biker shorts. Extremely versatile, they can be dressed up or down depending on the style and/or the day's events. As we're transitioning into colder weather, I've had my sights set on knit biker shorts that were both chic and extremely comfortable. These neutral-toned booty-hugging shorts were everything I needed. Paired with a cream blazer and cropped top, this is one one my favorite looks for early fall.

Multi-Way Ribbed Knit Halter Dress

Falling in love with this kiwi Simon Miller dress at first glance, I knew it had to be mine immediately. Along with the amazing color and super soft material, this dress can be converted into both a deep v-neck or criss-cross halter style. For me, functionality is extremely important so the idea of two dresses in one is even more reason to add this into my fall rotation. Paired with a calf boot or high-heeled mule, this knitted look is another for the books.

The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
