“Coat check.”

Ok, I have a confession: The real reason why I love Fall is not because of the pumpkin spiced lattes and pretty foliage everywhere – it’s the FASHION!  Cozy knits, beanies, scarves…what’s not to love?!  Right now, I’m loving printed coats and they get me super pumped for fall.  I’ve been on a hunt for something not too light, nor too heavy, but enough to keep me warm during chilly temperatures.  So guess what?  I found one!  This statement coat is the punctuation to any classic wardrobe.  I kept it simple with the basics: a silk cami and leather skinnies (my other choice would’ve been jeans and a tee).  A basic look plus a great coat is my go to this season.  It’s foolproof!  I added a little bit of shine with gold, mirrored sunnies and metallic shoes.  And of course, a bandana scarf because everything looks better with a cute scarf on top. ❤

“Cold shoulder”

Happy humpday!  Here’s another post at the beach because who doesn’t love the beach? Back to talking about #sweaterweather outfits because when that fall chill comes rolling in, we want to shimmy into something cozy.  This off the shoulder sweater is soft and feels like a big blanket on me!  Yes, it’s huge (don’t we all like the oversized look?) but anything that hangs off the shoulder is kinda sexy with a little bit of skin showing.  I wore denim cutoffs with these because it was fitting for hanging by the beach, but this can be easily worn with skinny jeans/leggings for a balanced silhouette.  My looks aren’t complete without my sunglasses, so here I’m wearing this adorable pair for a little extra flair.  Hey, that rhymes!

Cozy?  Check.  Oversize?  Check.  Comfortable?  Check.  Stylish?  Check.  This sweater is everything!

My cold shoulder never looked so good. ❤

“Hello, fall.”

Living here in California does have its perks.  Fall is in the air, but it’s not quite the time to put those summer pieces away yet.  I wanted to hang out by the beach one foggy morning and I knew that it was going to be a bit chilly.  I tried not to look like I was dressed for the polar vortex (if its 65 degrees and under, I’m freezing! haha!) so hello, chunky, oversized cardigan. 🙂  I often keep a cozy cardi in hand for those transitional weather days, especially living here in the Bay Area.

Oversized cardigans and cutoffs mesh well together, so if you want to pull out those chunkier knits at the beach, balance it out with denim cutoffs.  Shoes are optional. ❤
