Well, it’s official. It’s beanie season in LA. I’ve been waiting for what feels like forever for the weather to start to dip, and now that it has, I’ve scooped this baby out. It’s probably my favorite hat I own, just because of how silly it is. As you can see, it adds a little extra something to a basic outfit. Not that there’s anything wrong with ripped jeans, a sweater, and a coat, but I felt I needed the hat for it to feel complete, know what I mean?

I know there’s this whole thing about not being able to wear white after Labor Day. But between me and you, I think that’s a load of BS! Clearly whoever came up with that “rule” hasn’t seen a winter white outfit, and a good one at that. I love a good monochrome look, and to me, you can’t get anymore chic than one that’s white on white on white. Here, I decided to play with different shades of grey and white, and it feels on point with the season, no? Moral of the story: Don’t let silly rules get in the way of wearing something you want to wear.
By now, you all are well aware of my obsession with shortalls (see here, here, & here). But full on overalls? A whole other story. In short: I’m obsessed. Obsessed. It took me so long to find a pair that I really liked on me, but I’m so glad I did since the temps are starting to drop. I’ve actually never owned a pair of denim that’s as soft as these overalls; they almost feel velvety. And the oversized fit doesn’t hurt, either. I think everyone should have a pair of these on hand, simply because you don’t have to worry that you won’t look good. Throw on a plain or striped tee and you’re good to go, at least in my book.
