California is a late bloomer when it comes to seasons. Now that it’s practically winter, we’re raking leaves like no body’s business. Better late than never, right? I decided to dress the part in a preppy look. Preppy just seems appropriate for fall.
I couldn’t wait to pair this dress and scarf together. I love mixing prints with similar colors and this scarf is easy to style with so many pieces. If it’s colder where you are, you could also add tights to finish the outfit. I might have to do that sooner than later. continue reading

The whole “fall” thing is kind of a lost concept in LA. By September our brains think it’s supposed to start cooling down, but mother nature is still heating up. Most years true fall (below 78 degrees) starts around Thanksgiving, however mornings and evenings cool off earlier than that. My solution is to layer, layer, layer! This duster cardigan is a godsend. It’s just as easy to pair with shorts as it is with a mini dress or denim for that “not quite fall” morning chill. I’m searching for more to add to my wardrobe. continue reading
Last weekend it felt like winter hit Southern California. No more beach cover ups for me… at least for now. I’m sure it will be back in the 70’s before Christmas, but for the moment I’m enjoying the chill. It’s fun to bring out coats and other winter-y things as long as I know I’ll be wearing sandals and tank tops in the coming weeks.
