Bittersweet October – Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall Fashion

I have welcomed the beginning of what I like to call “Bittersweet October”. The weather in San Diego starts to change with crisp air, cool breezes and the slight chances of a little rain. As I get ecstatic with the diminishing heat, it is the definite reality that summer is coming to an end.

With that being said, I get to slowing introduce the staple pieces I have been adding to my wardrobe for this upcoming fall/winter season. Keeping in mind that San Diego occasionally has its warm days up to December, my fall fashion favorites are still breathable fabrics and airy drapes. I woke up on Sunday to rain, so it was time to bust out the booties!


{Boots: Jessica Simpson}

What inspired this post was my obsession for these boots! I have been searching for the perfect pair of booties to add to my wardrobe, and the search has finally ended. I absolutely idolize the color as it is neutral (the way I like it) and the fridge is all the rage.

{Pants: Michael Kors}

Another staple piece from my favorite designer and an item I wear quite often for work. These pants have gold zippers in the front and back which give it style, as well as add a beautiful contrast against the blue. They are form fitting, extremely comfortable, and the fabric is to die for! Perfect for around the office or casual wear as I have paired it in this look.

{Sweater: Ralph Lauren}

I am and always will be a sweater gal. As my style is laid-back and I aim for minimalistic looks, I could not pass up this piece. This is another piece that can be worn many ways around the office or as casual wear. The back of the sweater lays longer on the body, while the front cuts shorter than the back, which is a style I have always adored.

{Bangle & Earrings: J.Crew}

To accentuate the gold zippers in the pants as well as the tarnished color of the zipper on the booties, I paired this bangle from J.Crew that displays brown and tan leopard print, covered by gold platting. I also added a pair of my J.Crew heart earrings (unfortunately, you can not see them in these photos) with small diamonds in the middle which added a little extra something to the frame of the face.

      It is AMAZING! I was surprised that I found it at Marshalls! You can actually find some decent garments there, it just takes some searching..
