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….

Sorry in advance, almost everything I’m wearing in this post is old. But as always, I’ve done my best to link to similar items. I came across this outfit I had forgotten to post a while back. I had one of my good friends, Jenna, visit a few weeks ago, and since her time covered some weekdays, it was a really chill little relaxing visit. One of her days here we passed through Venice and ate just off the sand at the amazing Venice Ale House. I really recommend anyone stopping through that area grab a bite there. There’s some pretty amazing food on the menu, and you can’t beat the atmosphere of people-watching as you look out at the boardwalk and beach. The weather this particular day was warm, but with a breeze on top, so It was a good choice to go with a sleeveless maxi dress. 

I am really big on prints, especially the detailed patterns of a “scarf print”. This maxi happens to be one of my favorites, and is from F21 last summer. I love the pattern, colors, and the A-line fit of the skirt, and it’s a super comfortable and breezy fabric. Jenna happens to be a fantastic photographer, and she’s snapped an outfit for me before here, but she was kind enough to take a little detour with me before leaving the area to get an outfit shoot in. It’s always awesome to hand her the camera, since we don’t get to see each other very often, and I don’t even have to tell Jenna anything I’m trying to achieve, since she has a super talented eye on her own. If you haven’t seen her work yet, definitely check it out over here! Wonderful photos from an even more wonderful person. :)

This dress is long, so I like to pair it with wedges when I can, and load up on some of my daintier, more geometric jewelry. I always toss on a belt to break it up, and this time a little crochet vest to keep an indie look since it wasn’t too hot a day to layer. This dress is stand-out on its own, and also looks great with chambray, leather jackets, flats (so long as I’m careful not to trip!), and off the shoulder cardigans when warmth needs to be added. The print is colorful enough without being too loud or bright, which means you pretty much can’t mess up wearing this one.
