the in between days of summer and fall are the hardest to dress for… It’s still too hot to wear tights but pretty chilly when you’re in the shade. This was my compromise- cute pencil skirt, army green shirt and a snuggly scarf. If this is Fall in LA, then I’m a happy camper.
The other day I was having the worst day ever… then I ran into Target for dog treats- stumbled upon these Missoni for Target flats (that I really wanted weeks ago but had sold out), threw them into my basket, and then put on the most fun colors in my closet and walked to the Grove. Talk about the BEST way to turn around a bad day! Loved this outfit- loved the adorable doggies that wanted to give me kisses (but the owner was rushing them passed us), love being able to walk to the Grove.
The best part about our new apartment is its location. It’s a short walk everywhere you want to go. It’s lovely. We snapped these photos walking back from Whole Foods and World Market (we had gone in to buy that rug, but actually found a different one we liked even better!).
A kind of funky color combo today- mustard yellow, crazy print shorts and maroon shoes, but somehow it all works together. It was super easy to throw on but still seemed dressed up enough to walk around our more fashionable ‘hood.
The first one is recycled leather and pretty awesome… at World Market on sale for 59 bucks (4 by 6) and I have a 25% off coupon, too.
The second one (and my favorite) is at West Elm, $199 on sale (5 by 8).
Obviously, the World Market one is a better deal, super masculine (which I really like) and the texture is awesome. It would cover dirt or a spill easily and it is pretty awesome. The West Elm is just fun. It is like a burst of crazy energy on the floor. Completely different feelings from them… now which do I choose?!
