Swinging into Fall in Maxi’s and Jumpsuits!

Well the weather is finally cooling off, and it is definitely time to start bringing out my boots and long sleeve sweaters. What I love about Cali, is that you can wear a long maxi skirt all year round as well as a fun jumpsuit. My go to for meetings is a casual jumper like this J.Crew piece. It is chic, yet still easy to wear.

Hampton Luxe Chiffon Skirt

This silk top from A.L.C. available at Saks is gorgeous. This whole look is perfect for a cocktail event, and if the weather tends to get chilly, I will throw on a cool suede moto jacket to keep it on the daring side. I have always been obsessed with maxi skirts, and you can find them from places like H&M to Nordstrom. I chose this white, because it is so pretty, and can be played up and down. For the day, I will simply add a nice chunky sweater to mix it up.

Open Back Sleeveless Top

When it comes to accessories, this silk top needed a fun necklace like this Kendra Scott piece from Nordstrom. I also just added on my fun neutral clutch from Lulu’s to keep it streamlined. As for the jumpsuit, I feel a bit 70’s so I paired it with this fun sunglasses from the B.P. section at Nordstrom. They are only $12.00 and the bit of purple is super cool!

We all know I am a sneaker girl at heart, and I love love pairing Chuck Taylor’s with my maxi skirts. It keeps it fun and not too girly. As for this jumpsuit, it is time to break out some of my favorite booties, and I love the neutral color of these ones from Seychelles. Both of these are available at Nordstrom as well, and this brand is so comfortable I can wear them all day and into the night.

Ruffle Tops and Boyfriend Jeans!

One of my favorite combinations is pairing a fun and dressy top with a pair of cute boyfriend denim. J.Crew has had so many cute little ruffle blouses all season long, and I love the gingham pattern on this one. It is girly but yet still fashionable and cool. Right now, my life is all about as much denim I can possible get my hands on.

I am obsessed with these boyfriend jeans that are high-waisted. They are worn in, but sill have a shape to them to make me feel sexy. This pair is from Nordstrom and are Citizens of Humanity, one of my long time favorites. This top will also look great with some white denim for sure.

When I wear a fun top like this I love to throw my hair up because then you can show of the neckline and wear a cool pair of earrings. I am on a hoop kick right now, as they are totally back in style. Grab a pair for cheap anywhere, these are from Nordstrom as well, and are only ten dollars!

Hoop Earrings

Remember that these jeans look great with a simple pair of nude pumps like my favorite Steve Madden pair that I have had for about five years now. What I love is that they do this one every season in a bunch of colors, so make sure to check out their site.

Blondie!

I just came across the cutest new designer at Nordstrom by the name of Brunette the Label. They have the cutest tees and sweats that will make any girl skip around town. I found this Blonde sweatshirt that is perfect for the weather as it begins to change here in California. The mornings and evenings tend to drop and for the beach this is the perfect piece.

Not only that, but these cute Nike leggings are fun and totally on trend. I love a fun design on my running tights, and these have a great waistband that stays up during any activity. I also just got this cool Baby G watch for the fall. It is a cool shade of black, and will go with so many different looks. I like to wear it out at night too for a sporty edge.

I am a little obsessed with Quay Australia shades right now. They can be purchased at Nordstrom as well, and they are all around $60 dollars. I mean what a steal for such a cool pair! I love that these are a bit oversized, and they fit perfectly with this whole look.

Starry nights in Venice!

It is that time of year again, when you are starting to feel a bit of fall in the air. The weather is warm, but the nights tend to get chilly. For me, I begin counting down the days until I can throw on my boots and sweaters again. One of my favorite combos at night is pairing a pretty blouse or sweater with a distressed pair of denim. It is perfect for the beach. One of my new favorite lines is at Nordstrom.  J.O.A or Just One Answer had fun and affordable pieces. I have never met a star print I didn’t like, and this ruffle sleeve top is just perfect all year around.

When I leave the house at night, I love an adorable and affordable clutch. This one from the B.P. section at Nordstrom is only $25.00. I mean what a steal, and it goes with almost any look that I have.

 Stripe Faux Leather Clutch

If I am not wearing a sneaker or boot, I tend to go out in a fun pair of flats. This whole look just needed a small pop of color and what better way to do it then with this red pair from J.Crew.

Suede Lottie tassel flats

This whole look is just so much more fun thanks to 7 Charming Sisters. They have created seven different lines of jewelry that cater to different tastes and occasions. No matter who you are, or where you are going, they have something fun and unique for everyone!

The allure of Bohemian charm with Karen Zambos

Since her launch of Karen Zambos in 1999, this designer has reinvented the allure of bohemian charm with new levels of ease and sophistication. She began experimenting in reconstruction by gathering vintage pieces and re-working them for a more contemporary look. I first came across her line at a small boutique in Los Angeles. Right away her line spoke to me with its modern yet California feel to it. The print of this beautiful maxi dress is spot on for fall. It almost has a waterfall effect of autumn colors.

B-Lowthebelt vintage belt

When it comes to a long maxi dress, I like to play if up and make it a little more edgy with a fun accessory like this B-Lowthebelt. Their belts have a fun vintage vibe to them, and it cinches the dress in just enough to add a great waistline. During this time of year, I find that a neutral clutch like this grey one from Lulu’s goes with just about everything I wear. The small fringe detail gives it a little added punch.

One of my style tips, is that when you have a printed dress and a bolder accessory, go light with anything else. I simply added my favorite small Gorjana pendant to this look. It goes with everything and won’t distract or overpower the look.

Once again, my favorite Report boots are on rotation. These babies go with everything, and the block heel is on trend. The small metallic touch in them completes the whole look from head to toe.
