Shot these pictures yesterday in the glorious 72 degree weather where a tank top in the dead of fall was still completely appropriate. But fast forward to today where it has been windy, raining, and c-o-l-d. There has been an outpour of happiness on my Instagram feed from girls embracing the long awaited temperature drop. And although I too enjoy a cozy blanket and wearing fuzzy socks, I'm surprised at my fall backlash!? Layering is great - but sunshine is much, much greater. In other news, my wonderful boyfriend/photographer just returned from Seattle. Happy to have him back and resume taking Instagram pics galore, but I'm fully convinced he brought the clouds back with him. That little devil. 

If you haven't checked out my Shop My Closet site, you should definitely do so! I just added tons of new goodies at prices that are better than any sample sale you could painfully wait in line for.

last minute halloween costumes

Made a fun little video with the lovely lads from Sugar and Fluff. If you're like me, you start thinking of a costume the day of any event you want to go to. Go figure. Halloween is only a couple days away, but these super easy costumes are perfect for the procrastinator in all of us. Just requires a quick trip to your local Goodwill and maybe some rummaging in your own closet. Not going to lie, pretending like I was Miley was pretty damn fun. And I think the double tiny baby bun look might just be my new thing. Miley look out!

A few years ago I saw a photo of a friend standing in front of a giant 'Californian' sign. To my surprise, I accidentally came across the oversized delight the other day. Talk about a necessary photo-op! Speaking of oversized delights, I am so happy with the newest addition to my coat collection. I am such a sucker for a fur collar and aztec print so it comes as no surprise that I had to have this beauty. Besides obsessing over shoes, jackets are definitely my other achilles heel. 

Thank you again to Bianca over at Sally Hershberger! My hair color has never been the same since you. So fresh and so clean, clean.

I hate having a lot of stuff. I should clarify, I hate having a lot of stuff I don't use! It drives me absolutely crazy. So when the weather starts to change I try to find ways to make seemingly strictly summertime attire fall ready and oh-so-chic. I love the pale hue of this Gypsy Warrior dress and thought it would look amazing with some cream lace underneath it. Bada-bing-bada boom - ready for fall baby! Layering underneath summertime dresses is suddenly my new favorite thing.  

Hope everyone has a great weekend! We probably should start looking for Halloween costumes now, huh?

Such a sucker for white lace. Whoever said it was matronly did not see the plunging neckline of this dress. Spent another day playing tourist and this time hit the mean streets of Chinatown. I've had a boba with the boyfriend there but never really explored. When I think of Chinatown, I imagine the one in San Francisco where the streets are jammed packed and there are a smorgasbord of smells in the air - exactly how you want your Chinatown to be! Although this one has much more sidewalk space for my taste, there of course was some charm with the red lanterns and the necessary koi pond. 

Speaking of necessary, I recently received a long overdue hair makeover thanks to Bianca Hillier over at Sally Hershberger Salon. I like to think of her as my hair angel sent down from heaven. If you need your hair colored, she is definitely your girl! Let's just say she knows her sh*t. You're welcome in advance!
