Pedicure in Essie Flowerista 




It's about that time again. That magical moment each year where southern California finally starts feeling like Fall, and every woman I know gets so OMG excited to wear all the things - boots, plaid, sweaters, leggings, you name it. It usually lasts for a few days, and then just like that, the weather changes to Summer again and we go back to wearing tee shirts. Some refuse to accept this, and I completely understand the frustration. I used to be that person, until I finally realized that common sense says that people should dress for the weather, and not for the season. We live in a beautiful place so we may as well enjoy it and stop the complaining. Like one of my favorite quotes says, "nothing is under control" the least of which is the weather! Wherever you are, just embrace it. Unless you're so miserable that you plan on moving, then that's different!

But on this particular day, it did feel like Fall and I took advantage. Since it never gets that cold, the best way I know how to incorporate the season is by playing with jewel tones, moody lips and nails, and texture. I may be wearing a suede skirt and a thin plaid shirt, but it looks the part right? They say that life begins again in the Fall, and maybe it's true. I always associate new beginnings with the start of a new year, but it's comforting to think that we can start anew whenever we choose to. It's all a choice, and that we can control.

It's been awhile since I linked up but I'm doing so with Tara today :)

  2. Gorgeous skirt! I can't remember if we've seen you wear it before or if it's new to you but I love it either way! And light weight plaids like this are ideal for our weather, which has been amazing lately. No complaints here :)

    1. Yes, I actually bought this skirt at Express last Fall so I've worn it a few times but I think only one other time on the blog ;)

  3. This is a gorgeous fall look! I love the color and texture of your skirt. It feels totally fall (especially with the plaid) yet still not too warm for where you live. Gorgeous! Also, can't wait to see the heels on you if you did order them!

  6. you look really good with deeper shades like this burgundy skirt. It compliments your colouring and hair.
    I know what you mean about season. Everyone in my city complains about the cold. I just embrace it all. I dress warm and I'm good to go. And I like all seasons, they each have their own beauty.
