The Go-To Button Up

This Top Shop button up has become my new go-to shirt. It’s been a perfect transitional piece from summer to fall. I can wear it with shorts and sandals for a laid-back summer look or with jeans and booties in the fall. It’s super soft and I love the navy and off white grid print. I’m also a big fan of the half tuck with button ups or oversized tops. It can even be dressed up with a navy pencil skirt or trousers and a statement necklace for work. I just may be living in this button up until it falls apart.

70’s Retro Revival – Fashion Making a Comeback

I’m loving 70’s inspired looks this season. Wide leg jeans and super flares are everywhere right now. Embroidered peasant tops are also making a comeback and I’m not complaining. This look made me wish I lived in 70’s. Since it is 2015 though, try incorporating just one or two 70’s inspired pieces into your outfit to avoid looking like you’re going to a throwback costume party. Some other ideas for this amazing fall trend are booties, burgundy, tan, mustard yellow, suede, shift dresses, floral prints, fringe, button up denim skirts, clogs and wide brimmed hats.

The Dressed Up Sweatpant

I’m taking full advantage of this dressy sweatpants trend I’ve been seeing around LA. The perfect mix of put-together yet entirely effortless and comfortable is something I can always get behind. The leather stripe down the side of these fitted sweatpants subtly tell you, “yes I may be sweatpants, but I’m not sloppy, I’m chic!”… and I think the many compliments I got on these pants spoke to that point. Pairing them with leather black booties, a fitted black top, statement necklace and gray leather jacket made sure to further prove this to be a polished look and not pajamas (but they sure feel like it!).

There are many ways to wear dressy sweatpants and I plan to get myself another pair! I included my own look as well as some looks from Pinterest that inspired me. I recommend going out and getting your own pair…or better yet, repurpose a pair you already have by pairing them with some heels and owning this cozy winter trend!

It’s finally feeling like fall in LA! Here is my first official fall outfit post of the year. Also as you may have noticed, I finally have some quality photos on here, thanks to my good friend Ashley Fischer who is dabbling in some photography and looking to sharpen her skills (I’d say she did an amazing job!) all the while making my blog look a whole lot more legit. Check out her awesome blog here!

I got this amazing slouchy knit sweater at Shoot the Moon LA. Like you’ve heard me say many times before, you can check it out here, and all the other awesome clothes and jewelry. Use the discount code HAYLEY10 to get 10% off your purchase.

This is called the “Four Seasons Cardi”, and for good reason. It’s light weight and would look great worn over a summer dress or with a tank and shorts, but it’s very fall appropriate with jeans/leggings and boots. It’s become my new go-to sweater. I love the multi color threading in black and white as well. I’m seeing a lot of sweaters with this coloring lately and it just gives off a cozy yet trendy look without being sloppy. Best of all, it’s so comfortable!

I wore this sweater with a loose white-t, black liquid leggings and camel booties. I love mixing camel and black. I decided to wear a necklace to match the boots to really bring out the brown to offset the black and white. Since liquid leggings can easily give off an edgier look, which is ok, I did want this to be more of a cozy fall look. I think the brown and gold accents accomplish that goal.

I am looking forward to more fall fashion and sharing with you guys what I’m finding to be “in vogue” this season without breaking the bank!

Have a fun and safe Halloween and until next time…

California dreamin’…..of fall fashion

NativeAmericanInspired2 NativeAmericanInspired1 FeatherNecklace

When you live in Southern California you never really get a proper Autumn season. It’s a tiny tragedy for me since fall is my favorite time of the year. Not only for it’s beautiful colors and crisp cool weather, but for the fashion. I keep trying to wear sweaters and boots and find myself overheating in the hot sun. I’m not giving up hope though.

But not to fear… (because I know how terrified you all are for me and my FOMO on fall fashion), it does cool down eventually and then I can bust out the good stuff. Until then it’s a bit of an awkward transitional period. It’s practically October so it feels strange wearing flip flops and a sun dress, but the weather says otherwise. I like to keep it breezy but sprinkle in the fall fashion.

I opted for a thin black sweater and an Aztec inspired print skirt. I added a pair of suede olive booties and my new Shoot the Moon LA feather necklace to keep with the Native American theme (get one for yourself or check out all the other awesome affordable pieces! Discount code HAYLEY10 gets you 10% off your purchase!).

In the evening I switched out the suede boots for black leather heel booties, took out my braid and spruced up my makeup and VOILA I’m ready for a night out!

As fun as this faux fall outfit is, I’m so ready for scarves and layering. Bring on Autumn Los Angeles!
