Let’s face it we all want to look good while working out because when you look cute, you feel good and want to perform better. Well Colosseum does just that. Their activewear is both fashionable and functional. I must say it is the most comfortable activewear I own to date! I’m a huge fan of their sports bras (feels like you have nothing on)! Here is what I wore on my hike.

Mel Made Skirt

 

As I mentioned in last week’s mel made post, I split this dress in two and made it into a skirt instead. It’s definitely an oldie (was not a fan of the dress to be completely honest) but glad I was able to turn it into something I would wear.

What have you made lately? I’d love to hear.

Mixing print and stripes has been one of the hottest trends this Fall. So I decided to take this look to a whole ‘nother level by not only incorporating this trend but by layering a skirt over this playsuit (yes, that’s a romper underneath that skirt), and keeping the colors subtle with black and white.

Romper and Skirt | MelRodStyle

Romper + Skirt (MelRod Style)

I love styling and reinventing different outfits without having to spend too much money by using items that are already hanging in my closet, much like the outfit shown on TheWeartogoGirls.com here. So in this look I created a new outfit using a romper and skirt and accessorized with a mix of silver and gold jewelry.

How did I do? What are some of your tricks and tips? I’d love to hear them.

Style Tip: Instead of putting away all of your Summer items, maybe pick out a few key pieces that can transition over to fall. For example – a romper or a dress can be worn underneath a skirt like the one shown above, a maxi skirt or with tights and boots. Or open toe pumps and wedges. Leave them out to pair with short or knee-high socks.
