pumpkin and oatmeal

It's here! My favorite time of year! October marks the season change, the chill of the cold air, the leaves crunching under your boots, pumpkin spice lattes, and cuddling with that special someone (or special animal in my case, haha). Although most days it still feels like summer in LA, there are a few ways to get into the spirit of fall without looking like a crazy person while everyone else is still in denim cut offs and tank tops. First, pair a heavier top with a mini skirt, keep the legs bare! second, add breathable layers. This sweater feels like a fall sweater but actually is perfect for summer because of the holes. and third, stick with a neutral color palette with pops of olive or burgundy. These type of colors are always associated with the colder season. With these three things in mind this is what I wore to the pumpkin patch last weekend. We picked out the perfect pumpkins to carve and I'm so excited! By the way how crazy are those gigantic pumpkins?! I've literally never seen a vegetable that big (and please don't tell me pumpkins are technically a fruit, because I just don't accept that). anyway, hooray for pumpkins on steroids!

It's only rock & roll but I like it

Flowy blouses and leather look pants has got me feeling like fall is in the air. I'm definitely loving purple hues for the upcoming season, particularly this burgundy color that I have been injecting into practically every outfit. I wore this during the day for work then later for a night out with the bestie for dinner and drinks. It's one of those day to night looks that make my life easier. I just switched out the burgundy oxford flats I wore during the day to these suede boots for night. done and done.

red, white, and black

When in doubt, a black and white number is always my go to. Throw on a red lip for a bonus pop of color. I had dinner with Michael last week and wore this sweet dress for the occasion, it's totally out of my comfort zone and a bit too feminine for my usual style, but sometimes you gotta switch it up a little and keep em guessing. The flats made the look casual though which is definitely a characteristic of my signature style. I think I was subconsciously channeling some Alexa Chung vibes, and I'm totally cool with that. Anyway, Happy Friday guys! Have a good one!
