Fall tends to be everyone’s favorite season and I can most definitely see why. Aside from pumpkin everything, leaves turning beautiful colors, and a break from the heat, it’s the only other season besides Spring that you can mix your Summer and Winter wardrobe to make some killer outfits.
Fall is different in every city of course, in London and NY it cools down drastically, the south stays pretty humid, and LA…well, it’s like the desert moved in for a few months. It gets really hot (like heat wave of 100 degrees, hot), ridiculously dry (think bloody noses) and we get our lovely Santa Ana winds (aka our version of a Hurricane). I don’t know about anyone else in LA, but I always envy those East coasters in their coats, scarves and pumpkin spice lattes because I’m over here sweating worse than I did in August with anything I can find to cool me down.
On the flip side, being an LA native I’m used to this sort of weather and it actually is a little comforting when those Santa Ana’s kick up. To me, that’s our Fall and it gives me all sorts of warm and fuzzies inside, just like it would for someone sitting by their fireplace.
Layering can be tricky out here because it gets so hot and those temperatures can drop just as fast as they rise, so it’s better to layer lightly so you can shed it off or put more on if need be. I chose to highlight the key layering pieces for Fall in LA, mostly denim and a couple miscellaneous pieces, and what to pair them with. Of course, anything can be layered with a t-shirt or tank top, but the build is the best part. Take a look and try some of these out for yourself! Read More >
For my weekend going out look this week, I wanted to style something a little more dressier and since flares are becoming popular again for Fall, I thought it would be good to center the look around these Stella McCartney 70′s Flared Jeans. I think these have a gorgeous silhouette and the wash looks lovely!
To keep things classy, I paired them with an Equipment Shirt in white and then layered this gorgeous Rag & Bone Black Blazer over the top to give it some structure. For the shoes, I went with Christian Louboutin Pigalle in Nude to give some height and length to your legs, but keep things minimal. I opted for a similar shade Sergio Rossi Box Clutch as I think it gives a nice neutral balance. I then chose this pretty Sun necklace and this Rebecca Taylor crystal ring to finish it off. What do you think?
I decided to do a look that is similar to what I am wearing as I type up this post for my ‘Weekend Look’. I chose the new R13 High Rise Skinny in Dirty Black for how well the jeans are thought out. The placement and the sizing of them keeps them flattering and the wash is just so amazing.
I paired them with a distressed t shirt, also by R13, and a jacket by Diesel to keep the sort of fatigue feel going. I then chose a pair of Vans because you really can’t go wrong with them and they can take any look to an easy, no fuss vibe right away. To finish it off, a scarf by Isabel Marant because I was taking advantage of the 3 minutes of chill in the morning that we are having here in Los Angeles. What are your plans for this weekend?
These Paige Verdugo skinny jeans in Nico Blue Galaxy are not my typical style but I’ve loved them since I first saw them, so I thought I would style my weekend going out look around them.
I chose this blouse from Hope because I love how the chiffon gives normally casual plaid, a dressier vibe. I kept the shoes and accessories simple, with these classic white Converse All-Star sneakers, and a navy cross body bag from Sophie Hulme because I like the contrast of the darker blue against the bold blue patches on the jeans. Lastly, I finished with this gold pearl pendant necklace from Majorica for a bit of shine.
