Dark Romance

Jacket: Michael Kors (similar here) / Top: thrifted (similar here) / Pants: Crossroads Trading Co. (similar here) / Boots: Report / Purse: Coach / Sunglasses: Simply Vera Wang

An outfit can be combined of the simplest pieces, but when you start adding in fun textures such as leather and velvet, it immediately feels more elevated. I have always been a very tactile person, and this very much effects the clothes I put in my wardrobe. I want textures that I will enjoy wearing, and feel my best and most confident in. The dark florals of the pants felt very appropriate and romantic for a fall day, but the silky material made them appropriate for an LA fall day. I was uninspired with tops until I began browsing my closet and rediscovered this purple velvet tank I thrifted ages ago. It created a unique look that left me feeling both pulled together and on trend.

Cold Comfort

Sweater: Fuzzi / Tshirt: Gap / Jeans: Current Elliot / Shoes: Circus by Sam Edelman / Bag: Liv

My favorite thing about it finally cooling off in LA is being able to layer up in cozier clothing. I’m not under any impression that it will stay chilly–it’s inevitable that we will get another heatwave before the holidays kick into full gear, but I am fully embracing the cooler mornings while I can. Typically I tend to avoid mixing prints, but the colors of this sweater made it very easy to do so. The trick is sticking to a fairly strict color pallet so that things don’t get too busy.

Do you mix prints, or stay away from it?

Wild Child 🐍

Jacket: Veda / Top: Gap / Jeans: Paige / Shoes: Qupid (similar) / Clutch: Thirty-One / Sunglasses: Banana Republic

Of all the fall trends making their debut animal print has to be my favorite so far. I love that designers have branched out from the ever so popular leopard print to more daring ones like tiger stripes, snakeskin, and even zebra print. To ease myself into the trend I chose to give this leather Veda jacket a whirl, and have since been inspired to search for a pair of snakeskin booties for when the temps drop even more. What’s your favorite version of this fall trend so far?
