Fall Favorites::Flannels & Docs

I love this time of year where layering is made possible! It doesn’t happen all that much here in Southern California, but when it does I am all about it! Have a summer dress you can’t part with when the leaves start changing? Adding a flannel or a leather jacket and pairing it with tights will transition the outfit for the cooler seasons! Flannels and Docs are my fall obsession this year! Continue reading for my must have’s for this season! XO

Fall Fashion Trends: Boyfriend jeans + Docs

This years fall fashion trends are so comfy and effortlessly chic. I am a sucker for a good pair of jeans. When the boyfriend cut came out, I wasn’t a fan because I thought they made me look bigger than I actually was, and what girl wants to look bigger than her true size? I came across these jeans, and while they have the boyfriend look they aren’t nearly as baggy as others I have seen. They are perfect for going into fall! Next up are the Docs. I was hesitant at first that my size 8 foot would look rather bulky in them, but I have embraced the bulkiness. If you want to wear them, wear them in confidence! Last thing- who else loves wearing beanies in the fall/winter seasons if only to cover up slightly dirty hair? I hope there are some of you out there who can wear some of this stuff currently. It is 100 degrees here. Happy Monday!

Currently trending: Overalls & Birks(ish)

It’s September. The leaves are changing. The air is crisp. The fire is warm. You are greeted by the smell of pumpkin everywhere you go. Ahhh. But, if you live in Southern California you know that it is still in the 90’s, your boots are covered in dust, and your sweaters have been thrown to the top shelf to free up hanger space. The struggle is real. I can’t let fall go though. I typically go to Seattle, New York, or San Fran to get my much needed fall fix, but until then I’ll just show you pretty pictures taken by Katie Boink that will inspire you to embrace how little, or how much fall you experience this year!

Now, I hear a lot of people talking about how in (or not in) overalls are. I, for one, am team overalls. There are comfortable. They are effortless. They are back my friends. I love to wear them with striped shirts, plain tee’s, lacey numbers, or even the occasion crop top if I’m feeling a little risky. (Ok no, I haven’t worn them with a crop top, but they do look really cute with them if that’s your thing!) Birks are also back in. I remember a couple years ago my friend said they were making a come back after she saw some Free People models rocking them, and I remember saying “ugh no, they are not coming back.” Welp I was wrong, they are back, and I wear a couple different mock ones, which I think are cuter than the real ones. BUT what about wearing these sandals with socks??!! Are you on board? I am not yet convinced, but let me tell you they were darn comfy.

This picture makes me think I could rock the sandals with socks… or maybe it’s just the angle?

Summer Ice Cream Social

OK- this photoshoot screams summer fun, and is the ultimate guide for how to throw an ice cream social like one you’ve never seen! The gals over at Inspired By This featured this bad boy & I couldn’t be more excited! Kayla Adams works photo magic, and she did it again this time! This shoot was one where I thought, “I can’t believe I get to do this for work!” Once I thought of the idea it took on a life of its own, from the faux icecream to the cotton candy stuffed cones- there are def some pinworthy ideas to save for your next party! Oh, and not to mention the hand dyed, yarn wrapped rope installation complete with (you guessed it) poms, all draped off a custom built ice cream cart, (thanks to my talented husband who is a pro at welding and woodwork). I feel like I’m out of breath just typing all the details, and believe me I could go on! Take a look for yourself!
