Not Bad in Plaid


Living in L.A. doesn’t necessarily mean a huge change in weather when Fall comes, but I’ve purchased a few pieces that I can incorporate into looks I wear all the time, a.k.a with a white tee and jean shorts. So far, this blazer is my favorite one.

I thought these photos were appropriate for a post about how I chose my blog name and why my path to blogging has been a little unique. 

Deadhead in Velvet

I know velvet is not exactly a new trend at this point, but it’s definitely a necessity for every fall wardrobe. These Paige crop flares came into my life in a very fateful way- I found them with tags still on at my favorite thrift store and they somehow fit me perfectly- call this a (not so) humble brag but as anyone under 5’5 knows this is incredibly rare. For all other petite people out there- I think cropped pants are our calling. I’m so excited for a trend that won’t involve alterations.

I recently had a random man in an elevator ask me if I even knew who Iron Maiden was (rude) and I happily informed him that I had a very close friend who used to work for them (which I do).

A Total Mesh

So the title of this post was supposed to be a play on words, but I have actually been a total mess in the last few days because of Hurricane Irma. Luckily, my family is safe and so is my childhood home but I am keeping everyone who experienced the worst of this storm in my thoughts.

I never realized my wardrobe was severely lacking in not having an oversized white tee until I impulsively purchased this one this summer. This was totally one of those items someone else randomly placed on a rack near the checkout register and I grabbed on my way there (tbh it was their loss).

Plaid Prediction

Plaid never really goes out of style, but something about Fall being around the corner always makes you crave more of it in your wardrobe, right?

Yes, I wore these pants on July 4th and yes, I’ll be wearing them again. They’re seriously one of my favorite buys and I think it’s because you can pretty much pair striped pants with anything. I just bought this pair from Topshop (sue me, I know they’re pretty much identical) and have already worn them so many times.

This sweater has to be one of my favorite recent investments. It came pre-worn down so it has a vintage-y feel, which I love. I paired it with linen shorts this summer but can’t wait to wear it with leather pants and high waisted jeans when Fall comes (if it ever does, not sure seasons are really a thing in L.A.).

Finding a quality, well-made practical dress for under $100 is basically impossible but I think this one might fit the bill. I introduced The Fifth Label a few posts ago here, and didn’t even realize this piece was also made by them but it stands to reason because their stuff is so good.
