Perfect Fall Maxi…

IMG_9543IMG_9548IMG_9510IMG_9591IMG_9604IMG_9636Fall is my absolute favorite time of year to shop. For some reason, there’s nothing I love more than sifting through varying pieces to use for layering. For some reason I feel like the possibilities are so much more endless than with summer or spring shopping, where the clothes tend to come off a little bit. It’s much easier to add interest and depth to an outfit when you’re piling it on.

That said, a little shout out to one of my best friends back home! My friend Megan has great style herself, and she knows the way to my heart when it comes to clothing for sure. My birthday was a couple of months ago and I found she had left me a lovely little present in my inbox to do some shopping at Urban Outfitters, and lord knows I can’t hang onto a gift card for very long, so I was quickly watching the inventory for something perfect and unique for fall when I came across this skirt. SOLD! Thanks Megan! You’re seriously the best :)

I was obsessed with this skirt the moment I saw it, from the gorgeous scarf print, to the beautiful fall-inspired bright colors, to the flattering length and fit. Don’t have to show me twice, it was in my cart so fast. This skirt was even better when it arrived, with the high waist making it easy to pair with crops and sweaters alike…not to mention hide those food bumps from a night of chowing at happy hour. I didn’t want to take away too much, so my first time wearing it, the pairing of choice was a simple whit crop top, allowing the pretty colors to really pop. For when it cooled down at night (because that is LA’s definition of fall – night time) I chose an awesome striped and oversized cardigan for added texture, and a bit of pattern mixing with the scarf print, and of course, topped off the look with my favorite hat for fall. For the cherry on top, you can never go wrong with layered delicate gold necklaces and rings. I think this is officially my go-to fall outfit for when I’m in a pinch and don’t want to think too hard. We may be seeing this one a lot….

Dark Gypsy-Like.

Am I the only one who most of the time finds pants somewhat uncomfortable? I mean, I know I usually wear ‘em pretty tight, but even my softest, stretchiest, and most comfortable pairs don’t compare to a good jersey maxi skirt. I’ll be honest, for as much as I like getting dressed in the morning, I equally like getting undressed when I’m home for the day. I think maybe I just have this weird thing about needing to change clothes. I’m perfectly comfortable in most of what I wear, but I will take the first opportunity I get to put on sweats or yoga pants the second I get home if I’m done for the night!

Well, the exception to this little habit may just be this skirt. It’s awesome, made of the softest jersey, and it’s literally like wearing PJs. Being that it’s nice and high-waisted, means I can toss on a loose and sheer crop top without over doing it on the “skin” factor in relation to that side slit with the skirt. Throw on some fun accessories, and it makes for a nice all-black gypsy look with a touch of comfort.
