It’s Fall-ish! Pt. 2

It’s Fall-ish! Pt. 2

Because one day of cookies isn’t enough.   This outfit from Alli K has single handedly made me want to move to a colder climate.  Ha!  Totally kidding.  Seriously, I’m kidding.  I love me some LA sun!  This set will be perfect for LA once the “winter” hits, you know, when it gets down in the 60s & 70s.  This outfit had me from the start, in all of it’s squiggly goodness.  Plus, I am a sucker for matching sets, and even more of a sucker for matching sets that are comfortable.  This one fits the bill and as soon as the weather got down below 80 (for the short 24 hours that it did), I threw it on faster than you can say squash bottom!  I have no idea why squash bottom, it’s just the first thing that came to my mind… Anyway, it was the perfect outfit for the day paired with my trusty Hare + Hart bucket bag.  I also have it in tan and mint, seen here & here & also 1 million other places, and they have become my go-to bags for running around.  They fit everything!  And I always get so many compliments on them, and who doesn’t like that?!?   Now, go ahead, soak in the awesomeness that is me eating a Pumpkin Pie Cookie with Toasted Marshmallow Ice Cream sandwich in a killer matching set, all the while toting around my bag.  YOU ARE WELCOME.

It’s Fall-ish! Pt. 1

Let me tell you a little story about how this post was going to be about my outfit, and this Pumpkin Pie Cookie sandwich with Toasted Marshmallow ice cream was going to be a prop… But then there ended up being way too many cute pictures of Milk Jar Cookies AND of the outfit that I had to split it into two posts!  Pretty good story right?  Too many cute pictures are never a bad thing if you ask me, and neither are too many cookies! If there is such a thing… Well my friends, let’s get down to business here, shall we?  It’s fall pretty much everywhere.  Everywhere, that is, except good ol’ Southern California.  We’re still in the 80-90 degree range over here, making getting into the fall spirit somewhat of a challenge.  What is fall without a good cozy sweater?  A slight chill in the air?  Or how about a little pumpkin flavored goodness?  No, I’m not talking about your average, everyday, run-of-the-mill pumpkin spice latte here,  I’m talkin’ about the good stuff!  Like pumpkin bread!  Or pumpkin pie! (Maybe not for another month, but still.) OR PUMPKIN COOKIES!   Despite the lingering heat, Milk Jar Cookies has found a way to bring the fall to us in a more Southern California appropriate way, through an ice cream sandwich of course!  Toasted Marshmallow ice cream sandwiched between two freshly baked Pumpkin Pie cookies? Uhmmmm… Yum!  And quite pleasant to eat in the heat.  Not bad Milk Jar Cookies, NOT BAD.   Of course, to really get into the spirit of things I had to throw on an...
Now you see it…

Now you see it…

Who woulda thought I would ever get so much use out of apple green boots?  Well I did, of course.  I’ve been throwin’ them on with everything, they are like a neutral!  Really they aren’t like a neutral, and I think that’s why I like them.  I’m makin’ them a neutral, sometimes with a major outfit win (like the one above), and sometimes it’s a fail and I don’t leave the house in it.  You gotta try right?  They are just the right green though that makes them wearable with lots of different outfits, in my opinion at least.  (Over here, it’s mostly only my opinion that matters when it comes to clothing choices, sometimes my boyfriends, but… not very often.)   Cut off mom jeans are quickly becoming a springtime staple, especially with any type of shoe that goes up beyond the fringed hem.  These boots and high top converse are on heavy rotation with these pants for sure.  I feel like it adds a little bit of flattery, when the hem hits just the right spot over the shoes, and creates the illusion that your ankle is longer.  Or something like that… It’s an illusion of sorts, and I like it.  I can’t stress to you enough though, how important the length of the pants is.  I have another pair of mom jeans that are a TINY bit longer and NOPE.  They definitely don’t work in these kinds of situations.  They end up making me look like I have no ankle at all.  Who wants that? NO ONE.  So, when you go to buy or cut your...
Think Pink

Think Pink

Think pink here people.  It will make everything better, and that’s saying a lot as almost nothing can make anyone feel better about the fact that it’s Monday.  Wearing an outfit like the one above could possibly be of assistance too.  What other words of wisdom do I have to get you through your Monday blues?  Hm… the only other thing I can think of that makes Monday (or any day) any better is shopping.  Maybe hop on over to Hare + Hart to buy this bucket bag?  It begs you to, in all of it’s bucket-y, two-toned goodness.  Enough?  Okay good, cause I’m tapped out.  Sweater: Zara // Shorts & Shoes: Urban Outfitters // Bucket Bag: Hare + Hart Photography by Sylvia...
