Fall is my favorite season by far! I love the changing vibrant leaves, cooler temps and pumpkin EVERYTHING! But this year is different.
I’m in California instead of Kansas City, which means less of a dramatic seasonal change. However, the leaves do still change color here in Northern California so all is not lost! The temps are starting to go from 90/100 degrees to 75/85 degrees, which is a BIG deal, people! This new change in temperature has got me thinking about my fall wardrobe in a new light. My chunky knit sweaters are going to have to wait a couple more months to make their debut but I’m learning how to embrace fall with some of my favorite staples, just in a new way.
The look I’m sharing today is a take on my new approach to West Coast fall. The olive green top I’m wearing screams autumn with its color, yet the short sleeves and lighter weight fabric make it bearable to wear. It will also be great for layering under a leather jacket in the winter.
I’ve been waiting for the perfect fall shoe to come into my life and these brown suede fringe booties are it!! Not only are they fairly comfortable but they have a peep toe, perfect for the warmer weather I’m now experiencing. These would be absolutely adorable paired with a printed boho dress that are so popular this year.
The only way I know how to experience change is by diving head first into it. Although, I’m many miles from home, familiarity, friends and family, I’m trying to look at this move as a brush stroke in my larger adventure. Nothing is permanent; however, we usually get so used to the changes that when it’s time to leave or move on, we never want to go. Change is happening, both with the season and life. I’m embracing it with my full being.
