Is It Fall Yet?

I can’t believe it’s already September! Technically fall is just around the corner, but the weather in LA still feels like we’re in the middle of summer. The pro to that is I get to get more use out of some of my favorite dresses, but the con? I don’t get to wear any of my cold weather things (I still have a stash of stuff I didn’t even get to wear last fall!). Guess I have nothing really to complain about! The good thing about this dress—which is an oldie, but a goodie—is that I can wear it all year round. I can layer a shirt under it and add some tights when it’s cold, or can wear it bare-legged with sandals (which I’ve been doing quite a bit this year!).

And…I’m Back!

These last few weeks have been quite a whirlwind (hence me being MIA). My sister got married last weekend and it was absolutely perfect. But I’ll be honest, I’ve had a hard time adjusting and getting myself back into my normal routine after all the festivities. Yup, I’m homesick (having a great family is tough, right?!). I’m hoping that posting regularly on my blog will help—so here’s to that! No better way to get back into it than with this cute Forever21 dress. I haven’t shopped there in ages, but had to scoop this little number up the moment I saw it. Love the baggy fit and how boho it feels—plus it’s the perfect frock to lift my spirits!

Favorite Thing, Ever!

Shortalls are pretty much my favorite thing to wear. I wish I had an endless supply so I could just wear ‘em day in and day out. I don’t think I could ever get sick of ‘em! Nothing really compares to a classic denim wash, but these sure come close. I’ve had this Free People pair for over a year now and still wear them constantly. I like playing around with different shirt combos—you’d be surprised at how a simple top swap can make the whole thing feel new again. I’ll be sad when it gets too cold to wear these, but luckily, I live in LA, so coldness doesn’t last long!
