A simple addition of a denim jacket and boots can easily transition that summer dress into a fall look.

I’m greatly looking forward to the change in weather that will allow a cooler temperature here in the valley of the sun! Phoenix’s average highs for the day have decreased a bit from 100-plus-degrees to the mid-90’s. Soon enough, I’ll be able to break out my scarves and have fun with layering!!

This $7 tank dress, purchased from H&M, is one of many items I will be styling to transition into my fall wardrobe. And the “be your own kind of beautiful” statement is a perfect way to advertise my motto: shop smart, get creative, and stay true to you!

I opted for this denim jacket that I’ve owned for years to contribute just the right amount of warmth. Per usual, cuffing the sleeves offers a bit of personality to the look.

I bought these boots, which are one of my favorite pair, from Ross. I love wearing them with dresses and skirts! I finished the look with a couple of funky accessories. Tell me, how do you plan to transition pieces from your closet into the fall season?

Harriet Tubman is one of America’s most beloved historical figures but has sadly been largely relegated to just a few facts during Black History Month. This incredible ex-slave, spy, cook, nurse, public speaker and rescuer deserves a story worthy of her stature.

“Minty” – tentatively titled after Tubman’s nickname – is a “reimagining” of Harriet Tubman as an action hero. It is a period piece with a modern flare.
