aliholic fashion summer to fall transitional clothing

August is a bittersweet month, because it means summer is halfway over. Like it or not, it’s time to start thinking about summer to fall transition clothing. If you’ve been in any brick and mortar stores lately you’ll notice their fall goods have slowly started trickling in.

I’m definitely a summer girl, but I actually like rich fall colours like burgundy and olive. And even I like a nice cozy knit when it starts to cool down.

Head over to Aliexpress to prepare yourself for the transitional season for less – now is the perfect time to order to get your items for September.

Floral Romper



A floral romper in a darker colour like black or burgundy is the perfect transitional piece, especially if it’s a neutral floral like roses that can work in both seasons. Wear it with sandals or sneakers while it’s still warm out, and layer up with tights, booties and a chunky cardigan or leather jacket when the temperature drops.

Long Sleeve Off The Shoulder Top



The off the shoulder look is still big for fall/winter. Pack away your flowy boho summer versions and opt for a sleek, fitted version instead. It will look just as good with shorts and skirts as it will with jeans and tights.

Available in 4 colours.

Pleated Metallic Skirt



This is another big look that works well any time of year. Swap your t-shirt and sandals for a sweater and booties as needed.

Available in 3 colours.

Bomber Jacket


Another huge trend that isn’t going away. Trade in your silky floral summer one for a thicker version in a rich hue like olive.

Available in 3 colours.

Purchase link:

Chunky Cardigan



Nothing says fall like a chunky knit, right? An open cardigan is lighter than a sweater (especially in a soft colour), and still looks great layered over a t-shirt and shorts on late summer nights.

Also available in grey.

Ankle Boots



Stop worrying about your pedicure and put on some ankle boots!

Available in 2 colours.

Purchase link:

Leather Jacket



A leather jacket looks good in any season.

Purchase link:

Army Jacket



More substantial than a kimono, but just as roomy and comfortable (also looks great over cut-offs and crop tops, sundresses, and sweaters/jeans).

bathing suits for summer

Ah summer. IMHO it’s the best season. Skin gets darker and hair gets lighter. Days get longer and temperatures rise. It’s the season of sunshine, relaxation, and fun. There are a lot of things that come to mind when you think of summer – sandals, shorts, tank tops, ice cream, cherries and other berries and fruits – but to me the big one is the beach.

Whether you live in a coastal city, are travelling to one, or prefer to hang out poolside, bathing suits for summer are a hot commodity. So go ahead, get yourself a new one (or two) from Aliexpress. They have a great variety of bikinis and one-pieces. And you’ll have plenty of money leftover for your vacation and ice cream fund!

aliholic fashion aliexpress jewelry roundup review

Here’s a quick roundup review of a bunch of jewelry that I bought from Aliexpress: a studded bracelet, screw bracelet, a druzy necklace, spiky necklace and various rings.

I’m really happy with most of the items. Some of the rings have tarnished a bit and the crystal ring has been a bit annoying but otherwise everything looks great and it’s all for under $10. In the video I say under $3, but unfortunately some of the prices have gone up. If you like something a bit more on the ‘expensive’ side you can always add it to your cart and wait for it to go on sale as I’m sure it eventually will.
