Blazing Through Fall

When I think of blazers I think of a day in the office due to the collar and sophisticated button down. Recently, designer trends have changed the way blazers were supposed to be worn by adding different flares that bring casual and femininity to the look. I've had this blazer in my closet for quite a while and I think it's time I put it to use. My love for graphic tee's is still going strong and thought it'd be perfect to pair it with a fun plaid blazer instead of my other obsession - kimonos. While I'm at it, I added layers of statement necklaces to dress it up just a tad bit but still keep the look casual. It's always fun to get out of your comfort zone!!

Eclectic

If you follow me, you know I have a soft spot for boho styles. I can't help but gravitate toward staples that scream comfort!...and in Cali, comfort is the norm. The eclectic style makes me feel happy and free - I can't get enough of it! This long knit crochet vest is the perfect addition to my fall wardrobe. With temperatures constantly changing, I know it's one piece I can wear that'll satisfy colder and warm conditions. With this look, I went with my birthday dress I wore here and of course, my favorite oxblood booties for a more casual vibe. Last but not least, one of my favorite berry lipsticks to seal the deal!

Fall Fashion: Graphic Tee

Everyone knows that one of California's advantages is the weather. No matter what season we're in, you can get away with wearing anything.  I came across this baseball graphic tee at Shimmer and I knew it would be a perfect addition to my fall collection. When a top can be dressed up or down, It's definitely a PLUS in my book and this does just that. Whether you pair it with a casual look like this or dress it up with a pencil skirt and heels, this staple can be used many ways. Since mornings can be a little chilly around this time of year, I decided to carry around a plaid shirt for those very moments.

I've been non-stop perusing through Pinterest for home decor ideas and boy do I feel overwhelmed! It's so much fun...and addicting!

Floral & Dark Jegging

Back in the day I used to think that too much denim was extremely old school, and that it brought me back to my parents' old days. This is what I love about fashion, you can go back to the fashion history books and see what worked then, and what twist I can put on them now. With confidence and creativity, you can make anything trendy.  With that being said, I decided to take a risk and bodly wear this combination by wearing a lighter chambray shirt and a good pair of dark jeggings. To add contrast, I decided on a floral belt that stood out and complimented the overall look perfectly. I'm sure you'll start seeing similar looks this fall!

Fall Style: Oxblood Scallop Skirt

I guess San Diego didn't get the memo that Summer has ended so my desire to layer will have to wait. But for now, wearing fall colors will suffice. A blouse such as this one could be paired in many ways, whether you wear it with skinny jeans shown here or a pretty skirt such as the one I'm wearing, the styling options are endless!

Fall Fashion Trend: South-Western

South-Western

It's no secret that I'm a lover of the boho look, especially knowing it's a look that can be pulled off year round. If ya'll didn't know, the South-Western trend is the NEW boho this season! With Aztec prints to earthy textures and rustic hues, I just can't get enough of this trend. If you are feeling curious enough to try but feel like it's too much, start off by selecting accessory pieces that compliment your look but scream boho. Pair the Aztec print clutch with a flowy top, skinny jeans, a beautiful gypsy necklace, and of course a pair of booties and you are set! Will you be trying this trend for fall?

Flowy Vibe


October is finally here! The cool air and changing leaves is making it feel like fall and I'm loving every bit of it! So what better way to welcome the cool weather than with this adorable flowy blouse from Ruche. I love everything about it! It has a boho vibe and goes perfectly well with this crochet-knit vest. Since the top is flowy, I wanted to pair it with skinny jeans so that it gives it the right balance and doesn't make the look bulky. To finish up my look, I wore my favorite oxblood colored booties for the perfect fall boho look.

I apologize for the lack of posts lately. It's been a busy and stressful week with overtime at the office and what it seems to be the never-ending house hunt! I am surprised that I can even keep my eyes open. Man, I am so glad it's a new month!
