Happy Halloween! I’m in disbelief that it’s the last day of the month – each month seems to go by even faster than the last. I feel like I’m going to blink and it’s going to be New Years Eve! October was a fun month and I wanted to share a quick instagram update from some of the looks I posted over there.
I’m trying to get creative with my “fall” looks because it’s still SO HOT here. I really wanted to wear this tunic with jeans, but we shot these pictures on probably the hottest day of the year so jeans were out. Luckily I pulled out my favorite booties and a purse I haven’t used in awhile and forgot about our lack of seasons.
Summer has always been my favorite season. But now that it’s mid-August it seems like it’s kind of coming to an end. Without fail, about this time every season I start getting tired of my current wardrobe. And feel like I wear the same combo of clothes over and over again. In southern California we don’t really get a “fall.” If we’re lucky by the middle of November it finally starts to cool off, but this makes me never want to buy real fall pieces. To combat this I’ve started looking at dresses I can wear now that will still transition into the fall season.
Shift dresses are perfect for summer. They’re not clingy and can be worn multiple ways. I’ve already worn this one four times in the week and a half I’ve had it. To a sip and see, to work dressed down with converse and two more times because it’s such a good piece. I love dresses that are a statement on their own without going over board and this one is exactly that.
I’m obsessing over bougainvillea right now and want to plant some along the fence in our backyard. I was so excited to find this patch to snap these pictures… what you can’t see is it’s on the side of a parking lot with a Baskin Robins and liquor store 😉
Have a great day – thanks for stopping by!
