always in season

Beverly Hills, CA

For these months that are cool but not cold, and warm but not steamy, I look to transitional pieces. You really can't go wrong with a pair of flared jeans. Yup, the seventies-inspired bell-bottomed variety. You may remember these from a post I did back in March but they are truly season-less. I recommend finding a pair with a high-waisted silhouette because it helps to create that curvy waist, long-legged look that we all love. Oh and what's not to love about this top? I found it on the sale rack at The Loft a few weeks ago and it’s the perfect year-round staple.  Great with ripped jeans, a moto jacket, a midi skirt or in my case today, flared pants—this flirty little top is always a great choice.  What are some of your always-in-season pieces?

Fall Festivities

Glen Oak Apple Orchards

Apple picking.  Could there be a more perfect autumn ritual?  And oh what lovely things come with it! Fiery fall foliage, bright red apples, and crisp fall air… well those were all the things that came along with fall trips on the farm in New Hampshire growing up.  But now that I’ve found myself in Los Angeles, the season-less land of sunshine and sand, I have had to venture elsewhere to get my fill of festive harvest fun.  Luckily, there are several quaint “apple towns” just a couple hours outside the city that have a far-away country feel. 

Last year, I spent some time visiting an orchard called Julien, but this year I decided to go back to my usual spots on Oak Glen Road. Lovely and not-so little, it’s always packed this time of year. Complete with apple orchards, candy stores, hard cider stands, corn mazes, unique shops, vintage-style diners and pumpkin patches, it made us all a bit more excited about the cozy season ahead. Oh and do you guys remember my best friend Courtney? We went to college together, we lived in apartments across the hall from each other and whenever we can, we spend our days off adventuring around the city together. She's a true gem of a friend and I'm so lucky to have her in my world.

 For my day at the apple ranch, I decided to wear this new off the shoulder gingham midi dress from SheIn. Its the perfect fall frock and because it was still well into the upper 80s here last weekend, I paired it with breezy sandals. We can pretend its fall here all we want but the weather would like to say otherwise!
