I Love Fall

I can find something great in every season but this one is seriously one of my favorites. I think the reason is that in California we experience a very dramatic change in the weather somewhere in early October. While everyone is getting ready for Halloween in the hot weather and picking costumes that show very generous amounts

of skin, the weather goes bipolar and freezing temperatures visit California (freezing weather to Californians is pretty much sundress weather for the rest of the world). Speaking of Halloween costumes how did you guys like my Halloween post? (if you haven’t seen it yet you should go check it out).  However this giant change in weather brings beautiful streets with falling leaves and rainy sidewalks. I used to love walking home from school right after the rain had passed, in the brisk weather with the smell of rainy sidewalks, it was probably the only time I really enjoyed that long walk.  I decided to put some of my absolute favorite things about this season in this set. I absolutely love the comfort clothes that this season brings, it allows you to be more at home in public and to forget about appearances. I think that is why this season is filled up with delicious food holidays. We are allowed to pig out on Halloween and thanksgiving because the next day we can through on a giant oversized sweater and no one ever has to know that you ate two pumpkin pies by yourself last night. That’s why I believe leggings, scarves, and oversized sweaters are a must this season. Another favorite of mine from this season is the smells that come with it. I absolutely adore the smell on the streets after the rain has passed and the smell of food cooking for the holidays. But my all time favorite smell is the one they pump into the air of certain stores like Michael’s and Pier1.  I got this “Leaves” candle from bath and body works and it is probably the closest smell I could find to the one in the stores. We plugged in a bunch of wallflowers into all the outlets at our house and the entire house smells like holiday happiness now. Lastly I absolutely adore that wearing all dark colors is more acceptable in this cold weather because most of my wardrobe is dark fall colors so I definitely have the most options in this season. I will definitely have a lot of fall outfit posts coming up in the near future so stay tuned for those and I will link them all below.

Sweater Weather

Its finally time for me to start posting my typical fall outfit posts. I know that fall started a while ago but in California the weather only started cooling about a week ago. So this post is going to be kind of short but I thought this outfit was cute and I thought I’d share it with you guys. I got this sweater last year at Abercrombie and Fitch while I was working there (which worked out perfectly because they had a 75% off sale and because I had a morning shift I was able to get the last one for only like $20). The tights were from Urban Outfitters (I was wearing two pairs cause it was freezing outside) and the bag is Kate Spade.

Cargo Jacket 2

I dug through my closet today and discovered this military green shirt and thought I’d do another cargo jacket look alike post. I love this color especially in the fall. I found some cute shorts to match and the top I’m wearing under that shirt is from the Daniel Roberts for forever21 collection. I’m also wearing a black studded wrap bracelet and some beige booties both also from forever 21. I usually avoid forever21 shoes but I got these for like $20 and they’re super comfy, I love them. Lastly I have my favorite bag of all time my little Mark Jacobs, its my absolute obsession.
