I’ve always loved a fall day at the beach, just as much as peak summertime. It reminds me of childhood in Northern California. Running towards the icy waves with my bare feet and rolled up jeans. The wind making my nose red. Sporadic sparkle of the waves from the cloud hidden sun. There’s a temptation to rush this time of year. Power through to the holidays, wait until the new year to start fresh. I’m trying my best to not check out early. Find moments, that remind me to take it day by day. The ocean has always done that for me. And yes, I’m wildly romantic about it. So even as the sky turns darker, and the nights become colder, keep in the present, not a few weeks ahead. I have so much I want to accomplish before 2019 is over. 
This look has in some way, become my fall uniform. A beautifully fit pea coat, a pair of wide leg jeans. I have been craving minimal and classic when styling myself for colder weather. The boots I swear by for this time of year are my Huma Blanco Bolena boot. The most comfortable pair of square toe boots. I love that heel is not too high, and I compliments any type of pant. I have styled with trousers, vintage levis, and long maxi dresses. A quality shoe makes life a little easier for an on a go woman. We don't have time to worry if our feet are going to hurt.

It's no secret, the blazer trend is here to stay. Woman want close that feel strong, cool and powerful. Toss a blazer over any look to feel instantly polished. This season, I find myself gravitating towards oversized styles. Boxy and slouchy just feel less fussy. A blazer that doesn't have to be perfectly tailored- and with the right pieces underneath, it becomes a style moment. 
As I get older, there is something about finding clothing that acts as a conduit to my inner confidence. The days I am feeling off, or just not in the mood to get dressed, my blazer collection has become a part of my wardrobe that I rely on to make me feel my best. I have been trimming my closet down (donating, selling, gifting to friends.) But my blazers live on, and the number of them continues to grow. So I encourage you, to find the pieces in your own wardrobe that spark the inner coolest grounded you. I've talked about confidence many times on my blog, but sometimes we gotta work from the outside to bring out the power that's already in us.

Farewell to September! My way of celebrating the start of the new season? Sharing some style staples for this fall. There are quite a few trends that I have been eyeing, and Paris Fashion Week has definitely been a strong influence. So, here is a little preview of what you can expect from my fashion choices the next few months.
MONOCHROMATIC MOMENT: Of course, there's nothing easier than a monochromatic look. I tested this trend with my head to toe look from new it-brand, Billie the Label. I love the ease of putting to matchy matchy separates together. It looks well thought out, but most of the time these kind of outfits can be majorly last minute. Try bold colors for fall, such as pink, scarlet, emerald or navy blue.
MENSWEAR INSPIRED: Oversized blazers, pleated trousers, stiff button downs... the list goes on. Including menswear isn't something new for me, but I want to invest in some new staples for the season. My favorite blazers are from Closed, Frankie Shop , And Other Stories. There's a way to style menswear that feels majorly retro. I love referencing the cool girls of the late 70's. Think power suits and strong wide leg flares.
ALL SHADES OF BEIGE: This trend forecast comes straight from street style trends, and major publications. Carmel, camel, oat, sand. Different versions of beige feel refined, relaxed and chic. Monochromatic works for this trend as well. Head to toe beige isn't boring, it feels modern without try too hard.
EVERYTHING SATIN: Los Angeles, doesn't have a true season change. (Our temperatures went from 90 degrees to 70, which is practically still summer.) One fabric that feels very much like fall, without weighing you down? Satin. It's not too hot to worry about sweat lines, but can be easily be paired with classic pieces for autumn. I love a satin skirt with a thick turtleneck. Pair with either a square toe heel or the unexpected knee high boot. Satin maxi dresses and breezy tops work as well. Just throw on a blazer to edge up the look and make it feel more appropriate for the season.
